My first enamel charity pins find their new homes!

Posted on: May 17th, 2018 by samdrawsthings No Comments

It has been a really exciting couple of days with the hard enamel pin I designed for the Flower Power Fund arriving and swiftly being posted out to lots of happy customers.  £2 from each pin goes to the fund, raising money for Marie Curie (registered charity number 207994 England & Wales, SC038731 in Scotland).

The Flower Power Fund project is running throughout 2018 and involves independent knitting yarn dyers creating a beautiful bouquet of flower-inspired yarns.  I created a logo for the project which I worked with the lovely team at Badges Plus here in the UK to translate into a pin design.

Over on Instagram there have been lots of pics of the pins arriving in their new homes 🙂 The best bit is seeing them on lovely knitting project bags and settling into people’s pin collections!

 

My first enamel pin :)

It’s been a real delight to design my first enamel pin in honour of the Flower Power Fund.  I translated the branding I created for them into a simplified version using  Adobe Illustrator, learning along the way how to translate my scribblly, wobbly style into something that would work on a pin…  I am absolutely thrilled with how they came out, they are so shiny and lovely!

They’re available for pre-order now for £7 each, and £2 from every pin sale will be donated to Marie Curie (registered charity number 207994 England & Wales, SC038731 in Scotland).

You can find them in my Etsy Shop here, and my online shop here 🙂

🌸 designing the @flowerpowerfund pins has been such a lovely process. I love learning new things and I’ve had to get my head round minimalism (not my strong point) to translate my drawing style into enamel. @badgeplus have been super helpful. 😘 I’ve got lots of ideas for other pin designs now… 😀 this one will be up for pre-order at 10am tomorrow. It’s going to be quite a limited run, there will be 175 up for grabs on the preorders and I’m hoping we make 100 orders pretty quick so I can make the full order to manufacture them next week! Then they’ll take a few weeks to be made and shipped and ready to pin 🌸 #soexcited #illustration #enamelpin #drawing #flowers #learning #snowdrop #flowerpowerfund #fundraising #madeintheuk
