It’s been a while since I last had a chance to update my blog, I hope to do so more often! I am still stitching away, making personalised items for my Etsy customers. I have recently added Birthday crowns to my shop, which can be made in your choice of colours and shapes. There is also the option of a crown with changeable Velcro numbers for each birthday!
Spring is in the air here in the UK and my personalised play tents are proving popular! Now available with windows! Great for indoor and outdoor play.
I hope to share more of the fun activities I get up to with my lovely daughter, we always have a project on the go! Some of our recent makes include this dinosaur terrarium in a Poundland cocktail bowl!
At the moment we are making her a mud kitchen to play with in the garden this spring and summer. More photos coming soon. 🙂
I have enjoyed working on lots of extra special one of a kind custom orders recently, I love the ideas my customers come up with and it is a pleasure to create something completely unique!
This sweet nautical baby quilt was handmade for a nautical themed 1st birthday party for a little boy in Texas. The colours and designs were chosen to match the party invitations and his initials were appliquéd on to the sail boat on the centre square. As well as a beautiful play mat for the birthday party I hope this quilt will hold a special memory for the family for years to come.
This mini punk shirt was commissioned for 4 year old Carson by his awesome punk rock Mamma. I appliquéd a lyric by the punk band Rancid on to the back of the shirt and rockabilly swallows on the front of the shirt, along with skull and crossbones buttons.
This handmade bees and kitties dress and matching mini tote bag were made for for 2 year old Cara Bee. Commissioned by her Granny who sent me this sweet fabric to use.
It has been great fun working on these custom items! Get in touch if you have an idea for something you would like to have made!
I had to share these beautiful photos of little Reuben on his 1st birthday enjoying his 50’s kitsch meets Native American teepee. Reuben’s mum sent me a bunch of inspiring images with the kind of colours and designs she likes and together we came up with this fun design. It looks like Reuben loves it!
Custom teepee play tents are available in my shop. The possibilities for custom colours, fabrics, appliqués and trims are endless. Get in touch with your ideas. Thanks!
Some gorgeous quilted bags, bibs, wash bags, cushions and children’s dresses have been added to my shop! Feel free to share with anyone who may be interested in some unique handmade Christmas gifts or invite them to like my facebook page. Thanks!
Happy New Year! December was an exciting and busy month filled with sewing, craft fairs and family celebrations!
Our beautiful daughter Poppy is now 1 year old! She is amazing and I am so lucky to be her Mummy. It’s been an incredible year! She’s now walking everywhere, and she knows a few words and signs. ❤
I had great fun doing my first two craft events since Poppy was born, From Cambridge With Love and the Mill Road Winter Fair. Both are fabulous local events and I had a brilliant time sewing & preparing for the fairs and then setting up, trading, and chatting to everyone who passed by! Thanks to everyone who came to say hello!
I had so much fun making baby dresses, quilted bibs, micro bunting, purses, pincushions and wash bags! Lots of items are now available in my Etsy shop. My plan for the new year is to update my shop regularly with lots of fab new items so keep an eye out for new listings. I update my Facebook page regularly with my latest projects. ^_^
Christmas has been really nice too, all the more fun with Poppy around! I have to share some of the beautiful & thoughtful handmade gifts I was given!
This sweet Totoro acorn family came all the way from Tokyo and is now hanging in Poppy’s room. They are handmade by mums at the local primary school. The Mums also run workshops where you get to make them yourself! My brother made a blog post about it a while ago!
This awesome rainbow scarf was crocheted for me by my mum!
I’ve set my goal for this year and filled in the left eye of my Daruma! I’ll fill in the right eye when my goal is reached. Here’s to a great 2014 and plenty of sewing! ^_^
