Bobbins and Buttons

Bobbins and Buttons is your one-stop, fabric-filled shop for all things sewing. Based in the heart of Leicester, whether you’re looking to buy supplies or you want to develop new or existing sewing skills, Bobbins and Buttons is the place to go.

Our design journey began in 2017 when owner and sewing extraordinaire, Julia approached me to redesign an existing range of sewing pattern booklets that she was selling online. Using the existing Bobbins and Buttons branding as a staring point, I developed a fresher, cleaner and more versatile look for the booklets, which now allows Julia to expand her patterns into multiple categories / ranges (e.g. men’s, women’s, children’s, unisex and accessories patterns), with minimal editing.

Since then, I have been commissioned to design a number of other other items including gift certificates, vouchers, a double sided leaflet, a wholesale document, branded stickers and a range of promotional graphics for social media. We have even, more recently still, topped off our collaborative efforts by translating the new Bobbins and Buttons graphic identity into a beautiful, user-friendly website design.*

*Disclaimer: The web design was provided by myself, the development was undertaken by another company.

I have worked with Emily on several projects both big projects and small ones. She has excellent communications, follows the brief perfectly even adding useful suggestions. The finished work is highly professional and always delivered by agreed deadline. I won’t be going anywhere else for my graphic design. Worth every penny! Highly recommended.
