Toy Box Hugger – want a free one?


Well today I’ve been looking at some of the stuff I’ve made in my old house for Alfie. In my last house i made a toy box from MDF and covered it with a hugger!

Basically its a fabric covering with ties at the back so it can be removed when i want to update Alfie’s room or follow the theme where ever the toy box is sat! this is because i know how expensive toy boxes are…..and i wanted something i could re-use!

The method! i measured the area i wanted to put it…..took my measurements to B&Q (yes they love me there at the timber cutting station) and got some basic MDF cut to the sizes i wanted.

I then glued, crash nails and built my toy box….! soooo much cheaper than buying one from a shop and fit exact into the space i wanted it.

I then got some fabric and designed a theme to wrap around it! attached to the back some Velcro to secure it and waaaaa laaaaa a toy box i made in a couple of hours that fits exact and looks coool!

What do you think????

I’m thinking about adding these as an item to my Facebook shop as I’ve never seen anything like this in high street shops or online! means you can up date the look of a toy box when ever! Without spending the pennies replacing the entire thing! customizing it and adding some funky flare to a plain wooden box!

If you like what you see! read below for the chance to have one made for you at NO COST!

I’m looking for people to design them for….all it will entail is being able to take and up load the pictures and you send me some pictures once you have received it! please complete the form below if you have a toy box you want to up date and the theme you would like.

Tutorials / Maker Kits

JUNE 2013
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! 🙂
