Custom Bibs

Good morning all. The sun is shinning it is positively warm, I have my washing out, the hoovering done and my sewing machine is ready for some work. Todays sewing is all about bibs. I have a mass to make as I sold so many over the weekend. I am also going to be working on a set of custom bibs for a gorgeous little girl. She needs a bigger size than my baby bibs and as I do all my own sewing I can easily alter my pattern. If you are interested in a custom set of bibs either bandana style or traditional please get in touch. If you can club together a few people's orders I can offer a lovely discount.
Happy Tuesday

Thanks So Much

Good morning everyone. I hope you are in fine form today. I am bleery eyed and very weary after the last 5 days efforts, but I wanted to thank you all for your support. The Highland show was a success I am delighted at how things went and how positive everyone was. I got so many compliments about my little stand and my goodies. So many returning customers from all over the UK and Ireland and some very encouraging feedback about products that had been used and used and used. Not only are they wearing well but are also loved. When most of the things we buy and use are mass produced I am glad that handmade is still appreciated for its superior quality, design and unique nature. I am finding my niche and am loving it.
I have a lot of sewing to do this week in preparation for The Scone Game Fair and a lot of washing/ironing to catch up with to.
Happy Monday.

Half 5 in the Morning!

Good morning all I miss my little posts. Its half past 5 in the morning ( I have been up for a while) I am getting organised for my third day at the Royal Highland but thought I could squeeze in a couple of minutes to show you a pic of my stall. Its small but I like it and everyone have been commenting on how bright and cheery it is. Things are going well I have sold out of a couple of my goodies and I am delighted with the response I have been getting ( us handmakers can be a nervous lot always worrying about whether things will go well or bomb) So anyway I have got to go speak soon.
Happy Saturday.

That'll Do Pig That'll Do

I'm at the stage now where I have had enough of prep for my next couple of shows. I have designed and arrange my booth a thousand times. Made endless lists and had very little sleep for the last few weeks. But I am glad to say I will not be sewing tomorrow or the next day or the next and so on. Today I am finishing up some Art wallets and then I have some final prep to do, lots of running around, printing up labels etc.
So I will leave you with a couple of pics of the art wallets I have been working on. Wish me luck I am going to need my comfy shoes.
Happy Monday.

Royal Highland Show Countdown Continued

Good Morning all I have more to share with you all this morning. I will be taking these bamboo goodies with me next week to the show. The red/pink combo may be a new favourite from Tuesday but will more than likely be replaced super quick. Thats the way of fabrics with me, each one is a favourite. I am soo lucky to be doing what I do surrounded by colour, pattern and creative possibilities. My Nerves are kicking in I can tell you. I have butterflies in my tummy. I am so excited about this one I just hope I do well. But let me introduce my newest bamboo baby blanket.

I have used a variety of pinks ranging from delicate peachy right through to the vibrant cherry red. Lots of stimulation and talking points for you to share with your little one as you snuggle up. Can you imagine the stories you could create at bed time about the playful puppies or the children on their scooters in the park. Timeless and enduring memories.

I also took a couple of shots of these two fun bamboo taggies. Again so tactile and educational. Little fingers can fiddle to their hearts content.

I have so much still to get on with so I will get back to the cutting table.
Happy Thursday.

A New Favourite !!!!!!

Hello all how are you today? I have more pictures for you today. This has got to be a new favourite for me the colour combo just talks to me. It is saying make a quilt make a quilt. So after all this crazyness is done I will move on to a new set of crazyness and will make a quilt with this gorgeous blue and red. The question is who will it be for?
Happy Tuesday.

We Have Pencils !!

Hello all. First off thanks for all your emails I am not 100% I just think I am way over tired. Not to worry, It's Monday and I am officially on my Royal Highland Show count down. I just can't believe that I am there already the last few months have just been a blur. So I am going to try my best to show you a few lovelies that I will be taking with me. First up is my art wallet. This design has been made up with my gorgeous scooter fabric and the pockets are some cute pale blue puppy print, this extends into the handy carrying handles. I have filled it with crayola pencils instead of crayons. I hope this will appeal to a slightly older child. What do you think?
More tomorrow.

Bamboo Bandana Style Bibs

Hello all sorry for being away for a couple of days. Today I wanted to give you a sneek peek at some of my new bandana style bibs. These cuties are made with the same eco friendly bamboo terry as my traditional style bib so are super absorbant, hypoallergenic and anti bacterial as well as being oh so soft and comfortable to wear. Teamed with some fun prints they are sure to add to an outfit rather than detract. No more wet soggy tops or rashes under the chin. I hope you like them as much as I have enjoyed designing and making them.
Happy Friday.

Similar But Not The Same

Hello I wanted to share with you a little story that I love. I was recently contacted by a lovely lady she was the proud new Mummy of not 1 but 2 healthy baby boys. She wanted to get them a little something and wanted it to be similar but not the exact same just like her boys. Handmade seemed the most natural option and we had a bit of a chat. Both boys also suffer from eczema so she was instantly drawn to my bamboo fabric. In the end she choose 2 organic cotton and bamboo fleece tag blankies. I was so taken with this Mummies insight that her boys were similar but not the same.
Happy Monday.

More Teacher's Gifts

Good morning all I though I would share a little story with you. Last night I was working away on some bib orders. There are soo many little bundles arriving at the moment. Any way I checked my emails and I had a custom request from a lady in Cornwall for some of my eco facial pads she had been reading my blog about teachers gifts and had loved the idea of a handmade gift but just didn't have the time to make her own so next best to buy a handmade gift. Anyway here I am at 7am I have been up since 5.30 and now have her order complete and ready to post of this morning. Hope her teachers love them. This lovely lady just happens to own a Jack Russel puppy and couldn't resist a couple of puppy packs for herself. What a stroke of luck.
Happy Saturday.

Since I am in a particularly good mood this morning I would like to offer free postage on all eco facial pad orders today so thats only £4 each. Just email me.

More Scooters

Hello all I promised you an update on my new fabric options and I wanted to introduce scooters in a pale fresh blue. I just love blue and this has got to be one of my favourites. Mind you I say that about most of my fabrics. Again this bib would be great for a boy or a girl I know it can be difficult to choose a bib when you are not sure what the little bundle will be.
Scooters are the number one outdoor toy with my munchkins so the fabric seems right on trend I am sure I will be using it in many of my other goodies. What do you think of an art wallet?

Anyway I am enjoying the sun hope it lasts all weekend.
Happy Friday.
