My top tips if you're thinking of doing this yourself?
1. Sell the things that let other make - get the guts up to write those patterns and get them online, making things will never be worth your time!
2. Get your online presence sorted - blog/instagram/youtube you name it, get on it.
3. Don't be afraid! - approach those magazines, ask people if they want to collaborate, he worst you will hear is 'no'.
4. Things take time - it won't happen all at once, give yourself a break and let it grow on its own.
The only thing is, I now have so much work and so many commissions, I have very little time for blogging! I will try and keep on top of it, but right now, I'm going to commit to posting once a month, in the mean time you can keep up to date with me over on instagram.
In the meantime, here's a sneaky peek of my new book, out on 20th of Septmeber ;) xxx
