I’m Abi and I’m behind the Crafty Pinup, a Shropshire-based online shop creating crafty-themed pins, patches, kits and more! I started as a sewing blog in 2016 (now called What Abi Makes), sharing my love of retro and modern dressmaking, but last year I decided to morph it into a small online shop.

I started by bringing to life my tattoo style sewing machine pin badge, inspired by my own and my mum’s sewing machines. Then one thing led to another and now I have a whole host of colourful, crafty-themed pin badges! Tote bags, iron on patches and DIY kits followed.

Whether your craft is dressmaking, knitting or cross stitch, I’ve got you covered with a cute range of accessories!
