I so want this - perfect for my creations

I have just found out tonight that my idea has been accepted for funding by Enterprise Nations as part of their Fund101 campaign. They fund up to £5,000 a month for people to start or grow a business. Each person or business can put an idea forward for anything between £50 and £500

As I said my idea (see the VOTE HERE link) has been accepted and as long as I get 290 votes they will fund the £290 I need. WoW !- VOTE HERE

So please find it in your heart to vote for me <3


My idea is...
I have been experimenting over the last year with the creation of bags and cushions out of old woolen sweaters that i have felted. I have the aptitude to create my own designs and I have a good sense of colour to bring the right materials together to create wonderful creations. Up to now I have kept to simple designs as cutting out intricate ones in felt could be complicated and prone to all sorts of errors and slips.
I would really love to bring my designs to a completely new dymanic level and as I’m a bit of a computer whiz (last 30 years of my working life in IT) I would love to be able to do the designs on the computer.
The silouette cameo is an eletronic cutting machine which will link to my PC , allowing me to take electronic designs (design my own too) and cut them out to a professional finish, I imagine pretty japanese style & arts and crafts style (my 2 favourites) felt apliques on the front of my bags and cushions.
