Daisy said: "I picked it up in lockdown, it was my birthday in April and I had always wanted to weave so my partner got me a weaver.

"Then I had too many to keep at home and decided to sell them and it just took off.

"I have a shop on Etsy which is where I mainly sell everything; I have done one market, but it was quite consuming."

Despite learning to weave less than two years ago, Daisy creates and sells all sorts of creative items, including macramé wall hangings, woven wall hangings, custom macramé rope stars, and Christmas decorations.

Her top sellers are her macramé cactuses and Boho wall hangings.

Daisy added: "I was up until about midnight in the run up to last Christmas making them so hopefully they will be as popular this year."
