Craft Fairs – MiniMix
Making new bits!
Right……Well mum has been working her little socks off while i’ve been having a break due to work commitments, controlling my scary two and half year old who refuses to go to bed, get dressed! You know the usual but here’s some bits my mum has been doing lately while also getting out our blanket orders! WHAT DO YOU THINK GUYS?
Well as she is starting to do some craft fairs here’s some of her makes! really proud of my mummy!

Ok, for those of you who don;’t know me! I’ve had mega long hair for a very long time , down nearly to my bum! and really don’t like hair dressers! (trust me an awful experience with a Spanish hair dresser, ok she was English and dyed my fell’s hair at the time light buld yellow! OK MAYBE SHOULDN’T OF LET HER TOUCH MY HAIR READING THIS ha) but anyway, she cut my hair (a few years ago now) and basically she said at the end “OH IT’S MEANT TO LOOK LIKE HAIR EXTENSIONS!”
WHAT! no! my hair was all one length and i just wanted layers! GOD IT WAS AWFUL! so basically i don’t like people cutting my hair!
But unfortunately it had gone sooo long without a cut and was just a tangled mess i looked like a hobo dread lock fruit loop….couldn’t brush it properly and had to get my mummy to brush my hair at times! I’M 25!!!!!! plus the amount of shampoo and conditioner! wow! no wonder i was always cursing when paying for my shopping and weekly cosmetic products!
So basically i decided to have it cut! what started as a trim turned into 5 inchs of the length and do you know what I LOVE IT! it feels awesome, fresh and bouncy. I have really thick hair so it was awesome to feel some weight being taken off…..! but here’s the mess i left behind ha!
I took the bag of hair home (yes i know, whack job) and told my fella well we have a enough hair now for him to get plugs! ha…..yep he wasn’t too impressed…..(he’s losing his hair, touchy subject he he but i secretly laugh ha ha ha ha! )
So thank you to my lovely wonder hair dresser, Lisa @ talking heads in Northampton! I LOVE MY NEW LOOK!
OK my mother is amazing! Look what she has created…..just amazing! Our new range of buggy cosys are going to be sold on our website for £45.00 plus P&P which I think is a fab price….my buggy cosy (the fleece tie up one) cost me £30.00 from a high street shop! So £45.00 for an irreversible buggy cosy, including zip and a Velcro strapping system for ease of attachment is a bloody steal!
Basically our buggy cosy’s are made from one side: cotton / the other side: Fleece – so to keep snug and warm in the winter and cool in the summer! The bottom (which is attached to the seat) has wadding inside for soft little bottoms to sit on! A good sized pocket on the cotton side of the cover which is big enough for bottles / beakers and best of all those ever going missing dummies! I don’t know about you but when I’m out and about I get soooo annoyed with having to stop every 5 minutes to give my son his beaker and then the juice spills into the cosy and its just a night mare!
The way the zip is sewn in means the actual cosy can be reversed when one side is dirty! And you have it whichever way you would like it! We’ve also but a Velcro strap on at the top to hold in place on the bars of the pram! So no fiddling tying and untying the knots! Which I think it great, just unstraps it when I want to wash it!

More designs coming soon!
Please leave us your comments on our new product as we really want to know what you think – good and bad! It doesn’t matter! 🙂 xx
Right I keep getting asked about some tutorials and possible maker kits for our embellishments! Basically what I am going to do it getting a kit together and start selling them for £7.00 plus £1.99 P&P – these will be great for updating old cushions for the kids! Add to old curtains to bring back to life, or even stitch onto old blankets you may have to revamp!
As well as selling the kits I will be putting up some templates and a tutorial just in case you feel you would like to source the materials yourself and give it a go! So everyone’s a winner!
Keep following our blog for updates! 🙂
Ok well I know we haven’t been blogging much lately but so much has been going on!
Moving house, re-designing the website and making new orders! OH AND NOT FORGETTING A TWO AND HALF YEAR OLD WHO RUNS OUR LIFE! Just can’t believe how busy we are….it’s been a major learning curve and we now know we need to keep on top of everything!
We’ve had to up our prices a little because we can’t keep the orders going at the price we originally set! But we will be running discounts, so grab a discount when we send them out 🙂
Ok so check out our new website!
Let us know what you think!! 🙂
