Happy Customer Photos – March

Time for a look at some more of your cute photos featuring my products. Let’s start with some enamel pins!

Steph/@ruffrxbbit has started an enamel pin board and my Fried Egg has some pretty cute company there.

I also love this banner Ali/@meowitsalicat made to display enamel pins. Can you spot my tiny little Peapod pin?

And my Mt Fuji pin is off on adventures with Suzi/@suchaprettyfire. I really like the red handles but sadly Kanken backpacks are such great quality I will never have an excuse to buy another one.

My cousin Joeke/@cimi.miquitzl is covering her jacket in cool patches so I had to send over a Little Ghost. I can’t wait to see how the finished jacket looks!

I rarely find out what happens to all the fabric people buy from my Spoonflower shop but I stumbled across this key fob by Sew Nerdy, which is made from my Onigiri fabric. I used to make similar keyrings from felt and ribbon back in the day. It’s on sale for $5 if you fancy it!


And one I nabbed from Stories (which is bad form but I’m sure they won’t mind) – my calendar postcard on the Hannah Zakari shop wall! I have a couple of these left and it feels a bit late to be putting them in orders. If you want one, just ask at checkout.

Seeing your photos honestly makes my day so please share yours with me – just tag @marcelinesmith on Instagram, share on my Facebook page, or leave a photo with your order feedback using the Etsy app.
