New to LaunchHER :: Madefor3
LaunchHER says :: It’s our joy today to introduce you to one of our sponsors, Claire, from Madefor3! Enjoy reading a bit of her story and checking out her site. We especially love the story behind her shop’s name!
In HER words :: Hi, my name is Claire, I am in my late 20’s I live with my partner of 13years! I am blessed with my 4 beautiful daughters. My business is “Madefor3”, I chose the name “Madefor3” as at the time I had 3 daughters and each time I made something I would have to make it another 2 times, making 1 item 3 times, so they all had 1.
Madefor3 started, after a career change in 2010. I wanted to start something from home that would still provide for my family as well as offer the flexibility that is needed when raising a young family.
I started researching blogs and online handmade communities to see what was already “out there” and working. I was instantly inspired and I knew that I had made the right decision; it was now up to me to make my dream work in reality.
My online shop is filled with products that inspire me, something to bring a smile, I love colour and experimenting with different fabric prints.
I originally started with headbands.
A girl can never have too many hair accessories, right?
My girls love hair accessories, but buying 3 lots of headbands, clips and slides was becoming expensive, so I decided to create something that was unique to them and cost effective.
Soon after starting Madefor3, I found out I was expecting my fourth baby, which came as a bit of a surprise, it made me more determined than ever to make my business work for me.
As my pregnancy progressed I started shopping for accessories for the nursery, or in my case “lack of” they were either not suitable or very over priced, so I decided to make my own, which then inspired me to add a range of nursery items into the shop.
My new range includes cushions and bunting (fabric banners).
I have also started a new design of headbands…..
I am constantly overflowing with new ideas and inspiration, which I write about in my blog, which has also been a great learning experience for me; I have connected with so many great people and made some lovely friends who have helped me along my journey.
