Practicing new techniques today! Taking a break has been exactly what I needed. I've been able to try some new things without the pressure of running a store. It has given me a chance to reflect, learn and plan new things for Stitches in 2020. Looking forward to new adventures! . . . . #crochet #handmade #ropebasket #macrame #handmadebusiness #wahm #shopsmallau #supportsmallbusiness #mumlife #aussiehandmade #2020 #newyear

I can finally share this pretty bag I made! I gave this to my bestie @shinycrochet for her birthday over the weekend. This is an upcoming pattern that I am working on. Hopefully it will be published within the next few weeks, and it will even include instructions on how to line it with fabric! Stay tuned πŸ˜‹πŸ˜˜πŸ₯° . . . 🧢Yarn: Caron cotton cakes in boho floral and blushing melon. 🧺 Fabric: Japanese floral printed poplin . . #crochet #handmade #crochetbag #pattern #crochetpattern #wip #rainbow #colourful #caroncakes #spotlightstores @spotlightstores #wip #bag #sewing #project #sewingproject #handmadegift #handmadebusiness #wahm #sewing #sahm #mumswithhustle #mumsinbusiness #stitchesbytrudy #supportmakers #sydneymums

Thank you thank you thank you for your lovely feedback! It absolutely makes my day reading things like this. . . My little etsy shop has made 485 sales to date! For which I am so stoked about. However I rarely recieve feedback on my store. (Only 9% of my sales have been followed up with Etsy feedback afterwards) . . If you buy handmade, especially on etsy, please take the 2 seconds to leave a review! It helps your favourite makers be seen, and makes them do a little happy dance too! . . . . #crochet #handmade #baby #babytoy #etsyseller #etsyshop #handmadebusiness #wahm #shopsmallau #supportsmallbusiness #mumlife #aussiehandmade #sydneymums

A quick in-between project I just finished. I needed a bigger display for my earrings, so I made this. Used @bendigowoollenmills Harmony yarn in "coral" that I thrifted for $2 at @achievesewingbasket . Still plenty of room for more πŸ˜… . . . . #crochet #handmade #earrings #display #handmadeearrings #polymerclay #shopsmallau #handmadebusiness polymerclayearrings #jewellery #thrift #upcycled #thrifted #slowfashion

I've decided to take a step back from all this etsy/instagram craziness. This year has been awesome. I've learned a lot and explored quite a few new skills and projects. However the stress of instagram algorithms and etsy sales is starting to cause me to burn out. . . Truth is, I love crafting and creating art. But I dont want to associate creativity with stress. . . Will I close my store? No. My etsy store will remain open. I may continue adding things to it as I see fit. I'm just not putting pressure on myself to "make things to sell". . . Will I still take custom orders? Yes, depending. Im still open to discuss commissions. . . Will I stop crafting and posting? No. Im going to concentrate on some personal projects and trying some new things. I'll be using this account more to just share my creations rather than to spruik my wares. So it will be less spammy. . . As far as Supanova and similar events for 2020... I'm still undecided. We will see πŸ™‚ . . Thank you to everyone who has supported me so far. Thank you to every purchase, share, like, comment and follow. I've found some lovely humans during my crafty journey over the past two years. If you want to keep following and supporting my art, please stick around xx . . . . . . . . . #crochet #handmade #handmadebusiness #wahm #shopsmallau #supportsmallbusiness #mumlife #maker #craft #crafting #burnout #mentalhealth #selfcare #artist

Happy Halloween everyone! I didn't make anything spooky this year, so heres a little throwback to my #twistytheclown from two years ago! I was so proud of him, and hope he is doing well at his forever home.

Just wanted to share the crochet headband I made for my halloween costume! Last night I was Frida Kahlo, keeper of cake stalls at my roller derby leagues halloween roller disco. . . My costume was all just bits and pieces I had, plus a #thrifted necklace from vinnies and the flowers I made. Jack and I also made these cute monster/alien cupcakes to sell ☺️ . . . Have you made your own halloween costume (or part of it)? . . . . #halloween #crochet #fridakahlo #costume #frida #cake #diy #flowers #handmade
