1. Contact me via Email, Facebook or phone call to discuss order ideas. (Please get intouch and don't be put off by time, or money. I am very flexible and very friendly. I hope to make every step of the ordering process easy and pleasant for each customer.)
To make items as personalised as possible I might for example ask for: Dates, names, ages, favourite items etc. to give a more personalised character to the illustration. It is also common for people to send me a photograph via one of the contact methods. (Please note that the images and personal information disclosed will be kept private and the images will be deleted once the order is complete.)
2. Once discussed ideas have progressed into a final plan of action.. I will draw up a quick sketch and price the item. I will contact you with this information and make any required alterations.
3. Construction time!!... I will begin by cutting out item patterns and appliqué detail. I will then iron all pieces and get cracking with the magic! (start textile illustrating using my trusty friend Bernina the sewing machine)
4. Now the cushion in this case is illustrated and branded with a Bowden's Unique Boutique Label it is ready to be overlocked, stuffed and hand finished.
The item does not have to be a cushion this is just as an example.. Please view the price list section to see other items.
Thank you Robin Heathcote for letting me use your images.
