Todays Antics!

Another successful day sewing masks, scrubs and Key Worker bunting!😄🧵🌈 #thepinkflamingo#sewing#doingmybit#nhs#wecanbeatthis

#5*Feedback

It's nice to start the day with some good feedback from Happy Customers! 😃 ☀️😷 I am glad to be able to help out with sore ears! These products are available in several colours on my Etsy shop and Website. www.thepinkflamingodesigns.co.uk I have made over £100 so far for the NHS, and that is just from cash donations (I haven't counted up the online sales yet!!) ❤️💰 Thank you to everyone who has bought one, it's so good when everyone can come together to do their bit to help! 👏🏻🌈 I must mention though, If you do buy one and aren't happy with the choice of fabric you select, (they are made from either spandex or cotton jersey) I will not be issuing refunds as this money is going to charit

#MaskUpdate

Just an update on Masks! I have just had 6 days off from Spar, and been in in my Sewing room for every single one of them. I have processed 25 separate orders and made over 50+ headbands and masks. Not a bad effort for 6 days! (though I am beyond shattered!) I've also made 2 sets of scrubs with another 2 in progress. I am back to Spar tomorrow for the weekend. Which means I can only sew now in the evenings. All mask and headband orders (even the ones put in today) are in progress! I am just being held up by a delivery of filter fabric, which hopefully will be here by the end of the week so I can carry on! I'll give you a message individually when I have finished your orders. Thanks for be

M is for #Masks

Day 5 in Natasha’s sweatshop!😅 I’ve been off work all weekend and I literally haven’t stopped sewing. Today is my 5th day in a row. I’m wilting a bit today but I’m working as hard as I can to get these orders out.❤️ Here are some more masks all sewn up and ready to be delivered to a group of hero carers!🦹🏼‍♀️ I said to Dom 3 weeks ago that if I could “make 10 masks, knowing I’d helped 10 people, I’d be happy!” I’ve just counted up and I’ve made 80+ (including headbands) That’s not including the ones All Cut out and ready to go!🧵✂️ but If thats helped anyone in any way, then I’ve done my job😃🌈🦩 #pinkflamingo#smallbusiness#nhs#stayhomesavelives

#MondayListing

Good Morning! Here is my next #MondayListing! I didn't do one last week because I was too busy mask making. But this week I have something a little bit special to share with you. I wanted to join in with putting a Rainbow in the window to Thank the NHS and KeyWorkers. But as I don't have any children, I felt a bit daft colouring in (though I'm sure I would have LOVED doing it!) So I've made the next best thing! RAINBOW BUNTING! It is currently on display in the living room window. I am now selling it on my Etsy Shop and Website. You can buy it ready made up (so you don't have to lift a finger, except to hang it!) Or I am selling the ready cut flags and binding so you can have a go at making

#ScrubsDONE!

Scrubs done! ✅🌈 I was so pleased, I made Dom take a pic! 😂 just waiting on the next batch of fabric so I can make some more! ✂️🧵 PS - My friend Kelly shared this post on Facebook and wrote a lovely status saying that my hard work should be recognised. So Thank You to all the Well Wishers and all of you who said I'm doing a good job! It makes all of these sleepless nights worth it! #stayhomesavelives #pinkflamingo #sewing #nhs — feeling productive.

#StaySafe

Good Morning! And what a lovely morning it is. ☀️💕 I just wanted to share a couple of photos that I was sent this week from Happy "Mask / Headband" wearing customers! (other photos are on my "Blog" page. I don't know how two people can make wearing a mask look so cool! 😷 Thanks for sending me these and #StaySafe! 🌈 Just a reminder than I am being inundated with orders daily, which is fab! I am making them on a first come, first served basis and working my way down the list every every chance I get to sew! I will give you a message once yours is made and ready to go! 🧵 #smallbusiness #pinkflamingo #sewing #happyfriday

#JustCheckingIn

As promised! I haven’t done a #tuesdaytips post for a couple of weeks because I’ve been mask making! Some things are more important!! I did promise to check in with you so here’s a video of what I’ve been up to! 😀 🧵 ✂️👩🏼‍⚕️🌈💕 Link to purchase : Mask: https://www.etsy.com/…/adult-printed-fabric-masks-with-elas… Headband: https://www.etsy.com/…/adults-stretch-headband-with-buttons… A big shout out to all the Key Workers who are still turning up to work and making sure we can carry on as “normal”. 👏🏻🥳 A special mention to The Posties who are still delivering and the Post Office staff who are still making sure that we can post! Otherwise my masks wouldn’t get to where they need to go! #

#HappyEaster

Happy Easter! 🥚 🐰 ☀️ I hope everyone had a good one and was able to enjoy it as best as possible! I was working all weekend so haven't even had time to look at my eggs, let alone break into them. But I'll try and do that today! 🍫 Just to let you know that posts will be quieter over the next week, but I do promise to do another video Post as soon as I can. 😀 I am working most days in Spar and on the days/ hours that I am not working, I am like a one woman sweatshop! Making masks, headbands and now SCRUBS! Something that is tiring me out but I am proud to say that I am doing my bit! 💪🏼🧵 I currently have a list of 61 masks and headbands to make and that is going up daily! But I am sewing
