Fuzzy P lives in the West Midlands and loves nothing better than to sit in her sewing room (Yes she have a whole room, not just the kitchen table!) and create themed home decor goodies, especially for the nursery and bedrooms of little people!

Why and when did you decide to start your business?
Cue September 2013, I’m thinking about Christmas and what theme I wanted for my decorations. I wanted something different, something unique. And I wanted to make it myself! I’ve always been ‘crafty’, delving into cross-stitch, card making and jewellery – All since I was a child. It felt like the right time to try something new, so I bought some packs of felt and thread and made myself some gingerbread men…. Friends saw them… They wanted them… The rest is history!

fuzzyp craftsWhere do you seek inspiration from for your product range?
I look at current trends and try and emulate them. I love bold colours, my rainbow themed items are some of my biggest sellers.

What are your greatest achievements to date?
I am very proud of the fact that what started as a few gifts between friends has now become a worldwide business. I love receiving orders and seeing where in the world I’m sending them to!

Who inspires you?
I follow lots of talented women on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook, there is no single person that inspires me, I just love to see successful talented people and hope that success rubs off!

What is important to you in business?
Customer service is a must. I keep communication with my buyers at all times, sending progress photographs where possible. I hate it when I buy something handmade and I’ve had no updates, or I don’t know what’s going to come through the letterbox beforehand. I like to make sure my customers are 100% happy with their orders before they are despatched.

What do you enjoy most about your business?
I find working with felt very therapeutic. Crafting has always been in my blood and if I have a stressful day, there’s nothing better than sitting down with needle and thread and creating something beautiful.

What has been your biggest endorsement to date you have received for your product/s
I love it when I go on social media and see people recommending my products when someone is asking for a particular themed item.

Why did you choose to list your products on oodlique?
Oodlique is different to other platforms, as it specialises in personalised gifts. when I was approached, as my biggest sellers are my name garlands, I felt that they fitted in perfectly with the Oodlique ethos.

What has your experience been like working with oodlique?
Very positive, Brendan & Sophia have been a dream! Very helpful and went out of their way to get me up and running on the site at a time where I was severely pushed for time

What does the future hold for your business?
Oh my, I have so many ideas that I would like to put into practice! I’d love to see my little business grow to the point where I could call it a full time job – Who knows what will happen!
