Handmade Monday

Well another quiet week on the craft front for me. I have been getting to know my little girl who has done nothing but eat, sleep and poo!

I did hit the studio yesterday though and finish off my teacher gifts and a card (yes I know there is a spelling mistake) and also some back to school summer hairbands.

I have got my Mother in Law staying for the next couple of weeks so hopefully I should start to get back in the swing of things soon and you should see lots of other lovely items coming your way.

One thing I have developed is a new product. 'Buggy Grippers' handy magnetic ribbon loops you can use on your buggy to hang toys, attach sun shades or muslins and hang your brolly from. I popped these on my facebook page this evening and have already sold 3 pairs!

I also made myself a couple of items, some washable breast pads and a breast feeding cover up with a wire front so I can peek down at bubs while she feeds but Joe Blogs cannot see my bristols!

Well thats me for this week. Not bad for a Mum with a 2 week old baby and a 4 year old!! p.s. I am back in my pre pregnancy jeans too!!


  1. what a lovely ideas you have good luck with more sales for your buggy grippers xx

  2. The buggy grips are fun you should patent them and approach Boots. Enjoy your week.

  3. Some inspired ideas there - the buggy grips and the breastfeeding cover up sound brilliant!
    I remember making washable breast pads for my youngest, and one day my 13-year-old son came come from school with one - it had fallen out of his jumper sleeve when he was getting changed for PE. He wasn't a happy bunny!!!
    Enjoy your baby xx

  4. What brilliant ideas! Love the card and pencil cases.
