A recent commissioned piece for the lovely Reema who wanted a little something special for her niece. We decided on this bunny motif for the baby grow (Reema’s nickname is ‘bunny’) and with the words “Bunny Loves You” which I thought was incredibly adorable.
The motif is made up of several pieves to make the appliqué which I then hand-stitched onto the baby grow. I really grew fond of this piece as it was something different from the elephant motifs I’ve done in the past. I’m actually quite tempted to make an adult size of this……..the bunny motif, not the babygrow!! :P Anyway, if you are looking to get something similar done, then just drop me a line via the Contacts Page. xxx
I’ve been busy practicing my sewing skills during my spare time especially since the last little lavender cushion was received quite well. And despite my hesitance, I’ve been encouraged more and more to actually start selling them. So before I do, I’ve been playing around with designs, styles, materials, sizes, etc to get a good feel for what i’d like to sell and in turn knowing what design templates to create in the spare time I have….not to mention sharpen up my sewing skills even further! So here are two that I made and there’s two more on the way!! Seeing as I LOVE typography and now sewing, I’ve been trying to collaborate the two into the designs – keeping them simple but bespoke. I designed the type using various design softwares and then use that as a template to cut out the appliqués which I then hand-sew onto the fabric panels that make the cushion. (FYI – all the fabric used here are premium 100% Cotton) When the panels are machine stitched together, they are stuffed with polyester filling (I can add lavender if requested) and finally hand-sew them shut. So then – what do you think folks? Is it a “yae or nae”? Would you buy these for your little ones? :) Or they can be used for Baby Showers too? I’m pretty pleased with them but I would love to hear what you think of these too (I have a couple more to show by this weekend) and always welcome any tips if you have any! Thanks!! x
I’ve been playing around with more templates and fabric for my plush little elephants – I don’t know what it is I love about these gentle giants!! :) Anyway, let me introduce you to Nora…..who will be joining my collection of personalised baby gifts. She’s a big lassy; 13cm in height and 14cm in width. A little on the shy side at first but once you get to know her she’s got one hell of a personality! ;) Every inch of her is put together by hand which makes her one special lady! ;) Oh and I nearly forgot to add……it’s smells of lavender too!! More to come in this collection so do stay tuned……. xx
Commissioned work for another new baby – this time for a little girl! :) I was really pleased to have been asked to make this after the first one received many compliments. The letters and numbers were all hand cut and then hand stamped before getting it framed. If you’d like a personalised wall art for a new born baby present or for any occassion……..you know where to find me! ;) xx
Here’s a peek into these little personalised fabric soft toy-keepsakes I made for a couple of new tots that arrived last month – these were sent out along side the baby grows I had made (see my previous posts) as an extra touch of handmade love ;) Sticking to the elephant theme (I used the same template from the baby grows) I hand-sewed these out of 100% cotton fabric with lots of love and added a bit of lavender into the stuffing. What you don’t see here unfortunately, is that I added ribbon ties to the top affixed with a bow and button so that they could be hung on the door handle or wall hook. I have had a few orders since these so will be making them in my spare time over the next couple of months with various fabric but in pastel blues and pinks – will keep you posted on that later. Let me know what you think……and you know where to find me if you want any made for you! xxx
