I started Yellow Bee in January 2011 making fabric gifts – bunting and other items to order. I now make over 200 stock items – all handmade – in beautiful designer fabrics and brightly coloured materials. I have a background in engineering, and design all my products myself (with the exception of the gathered art smock with Velcro back). I pride myself on my attention to detail and the quality of my products, and get great feedback as such.
A number of my best selling lines come from bespoke requests as I also make personalised items. I am aware that there are many names which never figure in the “normal” list of pre-personalised goods and I have lots of customers who have been so pleased to find someone who will make a product or personalised kit with any name on it.
I have made bespoke art smocks for a nursery based in North Somerset and tabards of all sizes to identify children in “After School Care”. On another occasion I made a personalised cape and mask for an author for use in the photo shoot for her book and most recently I have produced personalised Superhero Capes and Masks for a food allergy charity whose logo is a Superhero.
Generally I am asked to produce many specific and unusual items, as they cannot be found elsewhere. I make large, bespoke foam cushions with durable, removable and washable covers for a variety of different uses. These have included bespoke, camper van mattress covers for a camper van hire company in Bristol, together with “made to order” foam cushions for their van refurbishments.
I also produce made-to-fit soft playspaces – “room bumpers” and “boxing ring” shaped, to provide large, safe, enclosed spaces for young children with disabilities. These are designed so the bespoke cushions can be attached together in different configurations to fit different spaces, and they are made from quality foam with removable, brightly coloured, textured, washable covers.
I am never fazed by what I am asked to make and love challenges, so if you cannot find the item you would like elsewhere and it is not one of my stock items, please drop me an email or give me a call. I shall be very happy to oblige.
