MBL Designs - The Story

Hi everyone,

 

My name is Mel (Melanie) and I am the Mum behind the brand MBL Designs, a small handmade business located in the South West of Western Australia.

 

I’ve always been around a sewing machine my whole life. In my early childhood Mum would be sewing away items like clothes for my dolls or curtains for the house. She’s always had a sewing machine and used it often. Her Mum (my Gran) also had a sewing machine and when I stayed with her in the school holidays we would live in her sewing room, sewing up a storm. I would arrive at her house with fabrics I had chosen from the local fabric shop and ideas of what I wanted them to be made into. Gran would design the patterns and together we would spend endless hours making new clothing for myself. I have such beautiful memories of these special times together.

Later
on during high school when we got to choose some of our own subjects, I was excited to be able to do sewing and design. I had always had an interest there but had never done anything formal. I thoroughly enjoyed it, learning how to do many of those skills that I am still using now. It was the highlight of my week. I was awarded top student for the class and found it a lovely creative break from my TEE subjects.

From there, I had a break from the sewing machine as I embarked on adulthood, work and study. I
then moved out of home and didn’t own a machine of my own at the time so sewing went on the back burner. I wasn’t sure at the time if it would be something that I would come back to or not.

When I fell pregnant with my first child in 2012, now married and living in a house that we built, the passion ignited once again. I rang Gran and asked to borrow her sewing machine so that I could make items for
the baby and I haven’t stopped sewing since that day. Gran’s machine never got returned and she could see how passionate I was about my sewing once again that she bought me my own machine, which is still the machine I use to this day. I think she was very happy that I returned to sewing.

My first child was a massive dribbler and would need 10 outfit changes a day as he would saturate his clothes. This was when I started making him dribble bibs. I still remember making 4 different designs and trying them out on him to see which one I preferred. I made him up a heap and then since I had all these materials I decided to open up my own little business and I called it Mel’s Baby Love. I really enjoyed having my own little side hustle to compliment motherhood. I sold over 1000 Dribble Bibs in the opening months and was blown away with the demand for my items.

Since then my little biz has continued to grow, I started making my son clothing and then offered some to my existing dribble bib customers as well. My son was always the inspiration behind Mel’s Baby Love. From there I fell pregnant with our second child and was incredibly unwell and unable to sew for majority of the pregnancy. I reunited with the sewing machine in my third trimester however this time all I wanted to make was little girls clothing, I wanted to try out new patterns and designs and something had ignited within me. I had another baby boy haha but that didn’t change my passion at all, it was still there and saw the rebranding of Mel’s Baby Love to MBL Designs in 2016. I had my first MBL release on my website when my second son was 3 months old and it’s just continued on from there. Looking back I still don’t know how I did it, a newborn, a 3 year old, a FIFO hubby and a business but I did and I loved it. My sewing room is my little haven and gives me my own interest outside of motherhood whilst being there for my children. When you find your passion, you find the time. Stay true to yourself, be authentic and follow the path that makes you happy.

 

Thanks for reading,

 

Mel xo

  • Hey, my name’s Eric and for just a second, imagine this…

    - Someone does a search and winds up at inspiredbymya.com.au.

    - They hang out for a minute to check it out. “I’m interested… but… maybe…”

    - And then they hit the back button and check out the other search results instead.

    - Bottom line – you got an eyeball, but nothing else to show for it.

    - There they go.

    This isn’t really your fault – it happens a LOT – studies show 7 out of 10 visitors to any site disappear without leaving a trace.

    But you CAN fix that.

    Talk With Web Visitor is a software widget that’s works on your site, ready to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number. It lets you know right then and there – enabling you to call that lead while they’re literally looking over your site.

    Time is money when it comes to connecting with leads – the difference between contacting someone within 5 minutes versus 30 minutes later can be huge – like 100 times better!

    Plus, now that you have their phone number, with our new SMS Text With Lead feature you can automatically start a text (SMS) conversation… so even if you don’t close a deal then, you can follow up with text messages for new offers, content links, even just “how you doing?” notes to build a relationship.

    Strong stuff.

    I was just on your website inspiredbymya.com.au and thought I’d reach out and ask if you are also interested in generating more customers?

    I think our businesses are a good fit, and I guarantee a discussion together would be worth your time.

    Can we arrange a time for a quick 5-10 minute chat together?

  • My name’s Eric and I just came across your website – inspiredbymya.com.au – in the search results.

    Here’s what that means to me…

    Your SEO’s working.

    You’re getting eyeballs – mine at least.

    Your content’s pretty good, wouldn’t change a thing.

    BUT…

    Eyeballs don’t pay the bills.

    CUSTOMERS do.

    And studies show that 7 out of 10 visitors to a site like inspiredbymya.com.au will drop by, take a gander, and then head for the hills without doing anything else.

    It’s like they never were even there.

    You can fix this.

    You can make it super-simple for them to raise their hand, say, “okay, let’s talk” without requiring them to even pull their cell phone from their pocket… thanks to Talk With Web Visitor.

    Talk With Web Visitor is a software widget that sits on your site, ready and waiting to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number. It lets you know immediately – so you can talk to that lead immediately… without delay… BEFORE they head for those hills.

    Now it’s also true that when reaching out to hot leads, you MUST act fast – the difference between contacting someone within 5 minutes versus 30 minutes later is huge – like 100 times better!

    That’s what makes our new SMS Text With Lead feature so powerful… you’ve got their phone number, so now you can start a text message (SMS) conversation with them… so even if they don’t take you up on your offer right away, you continue to text them new offers, new content, and new reasons to do business with you.

    This could change everything for you and your business.
