YOUNG MUM

I got pregnant at 13 – my best mate’s mum was my midwife

BUMPING ALONG

I’m weeks from giving birth & my bump’s so tiny I can still fit in crop tops

“Aw how exciting huge congratulations you deserve all the love in the world.”

While a second said: “Congrats my girl!!! So proud of you.”

And a third said: “Oh girl congratulations. So happy for you.”

Maisie, whose company now means that she can afford to buy a house, came from very humble beginnings, as she explained in a recent YouTube video.


Speaking in the video, Maisie said: “In the first lockdown I had just finished my A-levels and was working in Waitrose.

“I was really bored in my spare time and I had an idea to start embroidering and it just came to me – tote bags.

“I had no idea how to run a business let alone a successful business

“I started with £25 that I actually got from my granny. I bought needles, an embroidery hoop, embroidery thread and tote bags for £25 all off Amazon.”

Maisie explained that she’d always enjoyed sewing as a child and it “came naturally” to her, spending up to three hours hand-embroidering each tote bag.

After sharing her journey on TikTok, she launched her first ‘drop’ on Depop because there were no seller’s fees and the bags sold out within two minutes.

And as the orders continued to roll in, Maisie struggled to keep up with the demand and purchased an embroidery machine, meaning she could knock out a tote bag in ten minutes rather than three hours.

After launching her website in June, Maisie’s orders continued to tick over, turning over £4,000 in her first month and seeing her following slowly increase.

“In September I quit my supermarket job which meant so much to me, it was a mark of what I achieved,” she said.

By January this year Maisie had launched several new product lines, branching out from totes into sweatshirts, hoodies, notebooks, prints and planners – seeing her turn over five figures a month.

She continued: “Day to day I get between six and 30 orders just depending on the day.”

And Maisie explains that her successful business has made her completely reevaluate her life plans.

“I was on a gap year. Now I’m on a gap life, I have no plans to go to uni in the near future,” she told her followers.

“I’m financially stable enough that I can afford to live somewhere nice, but it’s just not money that I really want to spend.”
