  • First Paid Commission

    Well I have just completed my first 'proper' (I do use that word a lot don't I!?) commission.
    A mum from school wanted a load of personalised badges making for party bag prezzies, so have spent the morning (when I've not been on Flickr) making 26 of them. Well more like 36 but some were a bit iffy so I redid them.
    I'm now just worried that they won't be what she wanted. She didn't specify just as long as they had the names on, and the birthday girl is going to be 6.
    The ones she saw at the table top sale were mostly recycled comics so had Charlie and Lola and such like on them. I've scanned gingham fabric into PC then added names over top in Photoshop. When they are only 50p each I can't really 'go to town' on them. I've probably made nothing on them anyway :0)
    I'll just have to drop them off today and if they aren't any use I can do some more tomorrow. The party is on Saturday.

        Well done. I take it a lot of patience was needed and as Tip says you never know where this could lead and you will have had more time to cost them properly etc.

        Cheers and congrats

                Thanks guys. Pics of badges are on my blog - have just posted them.


                For some stupid reason I keep forgetting to add a title so it doesn't magically appear on the forum like everyone else's :0(

                23BeechHillWell done you !

                Love the mosaic of pics too.

                Must confess the mosaic idea was copied from incy but they do look great don't they - and I've got 3 of her pix in my fave's anyway hehe :0)
