Welcome to another bumper #HandmadeHighlights bustling with gorgeous handmade creations uploaded this week by our amazing makers.

We’ve been utterly blown away by the new items added this week, in fact its no exaggeration to say we could’ve created 2 further wrap ups featuring 18 more creators – it’s just such a shame we don’t have room for them all each week! 🤩

Watch: This week’s Handmade Highlights

The tree is down and Christmas has been packed away for another year. It never fails to amaze me how much roomier the place is once everything has been tidied away!

William Morris Strawberry Thief Inspired Writing Bureau

In that spirit, I’m kicking things off this with this magnificent vintage writing bureau from Peach Tree Wood. If you have freed up a bit of space and are now looking for a stylish way to store or organise your home office supplies, then this gorgeously up-cycled piece of furniture could be exactly what you’re looking for. Priced at £300, this piece has been made to look as new again by the clever use of the strawberry thief pattern lining, vibrant red paint, and blue felt used for the writing area and drawers, while keeping the original brass corners. I’m sure that it will be a talking point wherever it finds itself homed.

I’m sure that you can’t have failed to have noticed the cold weather when you’ve been able to pop outside. Well, whiteheartjayne has the perfect crochet baby gift set for keeping little pickles warm while out in the cold. Using Kerryjaynedesigns patterns she has put together a lovely collection of hats, mitts and booties for newborn babies. Not only do you get to select your colour preference, but you can choose which combination you would like. The hat only is priced at £13, both the hat and mittens, and mittens and booties options are priced at £18, the hat and booties set is £21, and the complete set is £28. The choice is yours!

Kerryjaynedesigns is certainly a popular designer for crochet pattern choices amongst our makers, and you can see why if you check out this beautiful collar cardigan with matching bonnet and daisies from Soozy Sparkles. Using a beautiful pastel variegated yarn in spring colours, this crochet collection is sized at 0-3 months https://madebymums.co/product/glitter-cabochon-bracelets/and priced at £40. The faux fur pompom can be detached if so desired.

Glitter cabochon bracelets

After such a long and hard winter, I’m looking forward to seeing the first shoots of spring. This means that just about anything with fresh vibrant colours catches my attention and has me wistfully thinking about spring flowers. Naturally these glittery cabochon bracelets from Clair Wolf Creations caught my eye with their delicate colours and sparkle reminding me of spring flowers pushing through the frost. Priced at £11.50, there is one in pink and one in greens and either would be a beautiful accessory whatever style outfit you have decided to wear that day.

Cute 3D Butterfly Necklace

Where there are flowers, then surely it can’t be long until the time when we will start seeing butterflies again? This cute 3D butterfly necklace from Cuxys Accessories is delicate and elegant. Another piece of jewellery that would look stunning whatever the outfit. Priced at £10.50, there is just the one in stock so if you know the perfect recipient don’t hang about and risk being disappointed by missing out.

The last two listings would make perfect gifts for any woman, but this next one would be an extra lovely gift for a mother. Beautifully hand painted in your choice of colours, this MDF plaque stating ‘Mothers are like Buttons’, they hold everything together’ from Wiggles Bear is priced at £20 and when made to order has a 2-3 week turnaround before posting. Whether for a birthday, Christmas or Mothers Day, we think that this is a perfect gift to show how much she is appreciated.

My last choice this week has a lot owing to being practical as well as being stylish for its inclusion! This reversible ruffle scrunchie from Psquared has a beautiful Japanese wave print on one side and white on the other. They make a lovely wrist accessory when not being used to keep your hair tied back. They’re priced at £11 and would make great gift for somebody growing their hair who wants a versatile hair accessory that will add a touch of elegance to any outfit.

That’s all from us for this week. Thank you for reading – stay safe and have a happy week ahead ❤️
