The Bambee Store is something I have been planning since I was in college. I always wanted to run an online shop selling little handmade bits and my art. It originally started out with the idea of selling bow ties when I found that good quality bow ties were difficult to find in the UK in a variety of colours. However, bow ties weren't as popular as I thought they would be and were a bit too complex for me when I was starting out.
So, I ordered some fabric I found online which I fell in love with, with the idea to sew them onto t-shirts. Pocket t-shirts aren't the most original idea as I am well aware but I hadn't seen anyone do them aimed at the "fandoms". So the TARDIS pocket t-shirts came to be.
I started with a small batch of Pocket T-shirts which sold out in the first night of them being on sale so I decided to order a much larger batch of fabric and open a pre-order for those who were so keen. A lot orders built up I am glad to say but my desk ended up covered in pockets prepped to go on t-shirts.
After getting the pre-orders out I started work on the newest fabric (my personal favourite). I wanted something that was related to the store name and logo which was based on my love for dears and stags. I stumbled across the cutest wildlife print and had to snap it up and get it on a t-shirt. I was a little bit cheeky and made one for myself.
The Bambee store is a constant work in progress and as the orders come in and the more I get to make them my confidence grows and I really love working on them.
