Merry Christmas!

Well its nearly here! Everyone has made their purchases, wrapped their gifts and is now waiting to see the looks of joy on the faces of those they love!

There will be some very lucky babies and children this year receiving some lovely
personalised baby blankets and personalised baby gifts.

Of course Christmas isnt the only time to give a personalised gift. Birthdays, welcoming new babies and baby showers are just a few of the other occasions that call for a special gift that shows you care.

But for now lets all relax with loved ones and enjoy the look of suprise and joy on their faces as they open the gifts we chose with love for them.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all. xxx

Cold weather on the way!

With a cold snap set to cross Britain this week and snow for some of us now is the time to wrap up those babies and toddlers with a personalised baby blanket. We have some lovely new designs to suit toddlers as well as new borns now so drop by for a look.

Swaddling a new born baby is also a great way to comfort them in those first weeks. This week we will be adding a lovely range of baby swaddling blankets.

Baby clothes with a difference


Our range of lovely 100% cotton Personalised Baby Grows come in some really funky colours and add one of our little applique logos and a name and you have a fantastic gift too!

Everyone loves something just a little different, after all we can all buy a standard baby grow but its nice to stand out from the crowd. You dont have to have a babys name on the clothing either, why not add a cute nick name, or a funny or cute saying? Let your imagination run wild and create something totally unique for your baby.

My 3yr old son is my best critique, he has been the tester and model for all we have made. His favourite creation at the moment is the the Christmas t shirts we are just designing. Although its only October he is wearing them already!

Personalised gifts


If you want to show someone just how much they mean, or just want to give a very special gift then personalised gifts are the way to go.

By far our best selling personalised baby gifts are the
Personalised baby blankets a useful gift as well as one that will become a keepsake for years to come. But the personalised baby sleepsuits come up a close second along with the personalised body suits. Embroidered and appliqued using beautiful materials, these are so cute who could resist them?

Christmas is a wonderful time of year and one when you get to show those around you just how much they mean to you, so how about a personalised gift?

Obsession? Hobby? Job?

I do embroidery as a job of course, but I love trying new designs out and tend to spend any spare time I have creating new designs and sewing them out. So although its a job it's also something else. Hobby or obsession though? My husband says obsession, but I think hobby, although I suppose I do have slight obsession with personalised baby blankets, my son has so many now he could have a different one on his pushchair every day of the year I think! lol

Now something I do consider my current obsession is the Twilight Saga, having read the books till the are now falling part I've moved on to the films. If you havent seen the new Eclipse movie do go and see it, its great and thats not just a die hard fans view, even my husband who took me to see it enjoyed it.

Well as much as I love to talk I love to sew more, so off to complete some orders and see what new things I can dream up.

Personalised Gifts for Twins

Here are we get to make some lovely gifts and just lately twins seem to be in the air!

Ive just finished two beautiful personalised baby blankets for a set of twins, a boy and a girl a perfect pair, and thought I'd share the photo of them. The another twins order! This time for personalised hooded baby towels, very sweet too!

I would imagine twins are very hard work, but twice the joy I'm sure. I always wanted twins, but suspect I wouldnt have coped too well! I have total admiration for those who make it look so easy.

Off to see if we have any more twin orders today, there seem to be a lot being born at the moment.

A site dedicated to breastfeeding is running a great competition at the moment, they have lots of fantastic gifts to give away including one of our personalised baby blankets, take a look at and good luck!

All though the weather is warming up new born babies cant regulate their body temperature like we can, so they still need something to keep any chill off them, and a special blanket is just the thing! But we can also help baby and toddlers look good in the sun too with one of our lovely personalsied t shirts, have a peek they are so cute!

Iggle and the blanket


I've always know that a blanket becomes a favourite comforter of children, our personalised baby blankets often become a much loved and much dragged around item by their little owners. But has Iggle Piggle made them more popular I wonder?

My son who is 2 now carries around one of the many baby blankets I've made for him saying "I'm giggle" (his name for Iggle). I wonder how may other little ones do this too? Is Iggle making the baby blanket an even more treasured item?

Well time will tell I suppose, but for now the little people who receive them are just enjoing being wrapped in softness, warmth and of course love.

embroidery isnt as easy as it looks

Whilst as a trade show I met several men, sorry all you men out there!, who have set up an embroidery business. They general theme was they were shocked how hard it can be to do, I guess they assumed you purchase a machine and off you go. But its just not that easy.

Ive done machine embroidery for years now, starting out as a hobby, and its been a constant learning curve. Every material needs a different way of hooping and a different backing. The designs themselves may need tweeking for what your sewing onto.

I learnt the most when I began to digitise my own designs. Boy did I have some spectacular failures to begin with! But once you learn to think about how it will sew out and digitise that way rather than how it would seem easier or quickest, it starts to show results. Dont be fooled into thinking these click and stitch design packages are the bees knees, they are not, sometimes there is no substitute for hard work

Another day at the NEC

Well another long morning at the NEC, but a good one. We are now awaiting the arrival of another embroidery machine to help with demand for our embroidered gifts and make our delivery times even quicker.

I love getting new machines to play with, I guess when its delivered I'll be up all night long playing with it to see what it can do!

Whilst I was at the show the lovely marketing lady from Wilcom gave a speach which was very interesting and thought provoking. Lots more work to do now though! lol

So now it's time to go put all my new ideas into action I guess! Keep your eye on for all my new creations!
