Welcome to our Weekend Wrap Up
Good evening and welcome to our latest handmade highlights, our look back at the gorgeous new handmade items new to #MadeByMums this week.
It’s Father’s Day of course, and we hope that there have been plenty of (warm!) cups of tea drunk, and breakfasts in bed, for all those daddies out there today. Not forgetting those mummies and other family members who get to fill this role too 😊
This week 13 of our makers have found time to list some beautiful additions to their shops. Grab yourself a cuppa, put your feet up and enjoy browsing our pick of the bunch!
First up is this cute little lion dribble bib from Baby Bear Keepsakes. Made in the bandana style and with two plastic snap fasteners, this bib fits little ones and older babies. Made with cotton jersey fabric and a super absorbent micro fleece backing these delightful bibs make a perfect gift. At just £3.50 (incl. UK postage) why not stock up on a few different designs as we all know that you can never have too many bibs!
Next is this stunning pink Bobtail collection from Cheshire Crochet & Craft. Consisting of a pram blanket, cardigan, hat and booties, this lovely collection is available for £65 (incl. UK postage), and has been made to fit age 3–6 months.
If you’re looking for a gift for parents of a feline fur baby, then we’re sure that they’ll be delighted with the sentiment quoted on this vinyl covered wood plaque wall hanging from Sasha & Libby Gifts. With hand made clay daisies and glittery bow cut outs, ‘Life is better with a cat’ is available for £6.75 (incl. UK postage).
Meanwhile, if dinosaurs are your thing, (and we know that there are a few dino fans out there!) why not treat yourself to one of these amazing tyrannosaurus rex postage stamp pictures? Each one of the dinosaur themed pictures from Little Deer Stamp Art is made to order and will have different stamps, but they always fit the theme. For £22.50 (incl. UK postage) these unique pictures come mounted and ready to be framed.
Continuing with the home decor theme, new maker Purpleturquoisecrochet has added a water lily mandala item that can be used as either a table centre piece or a place mat. These gorgeous crochet mandalas are made to order in 100% cotton yarn. This beautiful pattern by Camilla Lindberg looks stunning in purple and turquoise and at £17.50 (incl. UK postage) would make a beautiful gift.
Another beautiful gift, this time for a 2 year anniversary, is this personalised cushion from Makepeacemade. Cotton is the traditional material for celebrating the 2nd anniversary, making the cotton used for this cushion cover the perfect gift! As well as customising this gift with the happy couple’s name and date of their wedding, you can choose colours to suit their decor. For £35 (incl. UK postage) one of these lovely cushions can be on their way in 2-3 weeks.
A slightly different line of thought has gone behind this next listing from Heavenly Keepsakes. These football themed worry cushions are perfect for giving a really tight hug to when you need it. For just £19.90 (incl. UK postage) these cushions can be customised by selecting hair colour from the list and putting the required name in the personalisation box when ordering.
Over the next few weeks, some children will be spending time back in their schools. Things will look different for them, but one thing that won’t have changed is the care and dedication of their teachers. New maker Kidsyclothes & Gifts has listed this lovely teacher keyring for just £5 (incl. UK postage). This lovely thank you gift can be personalised when ordering and comes wrapped in cellophane packaging. If you’ve been home schooling these last few months, you can appreciate just how much gifting one of these would be truly deserved!
If you would prefer a bag charm as a gift, Clair Wolf Creations has added a pretty bag charm that is made with suede cord. For £5 (incl. UK postage) you can choose the colour cord from pink, fuschia, mint, aqua, blue, teal, lilac, purple, silver grey or white. Please remember to add the required name in the personalisation box when ordering.
This week talented jewellery artist Artis Cre has added a lovely pair of bar style earrings to her shop. These unique studs have been hand forged in solid sterling silver and for only £18 (incl. UK postage) come presented in their own beautiful packaging – and posted by recorded delivery. If you would like to send them directly to somebody as a gift, just pop a message in the notes box when ordering.
As the sun sets today, I can’t help thinking that the nights will now start to draw in, which can mean only one thing… drumroll yes, Christmas is on the way! I know that I’m not the only one. Many makers will be starting to thing about the autumn and winter months as the rest of us are still eating ice cream and wondering where we’ve put down our sunglasses!
This week we start have started to see some gorgeous cards and gift ideas for the festive season, so without further ado, here and now is where we start looking forward to my favourite time of the year!
New maker Raffy & Bee has listed a gorgeous made to order snuggly ear warmer. This ear warmer comes in either child size for £9.50 (incl. UK postage) or adult for £10.50 (incl. UK postage) and you can select whether you would prefer a gathered or twisted finish. You can also select a colour from the ones in the listing by popping your preference in the personalisation box when ordering. Please note that as these are made to order that you will need to allow 7 days for the order to be dispatched and then a few more days for delivery.
Earlier we showed you a lovely gift for cat lovers. Well, no need to feel left out dog lovers, as Blueagapanthus has added this wonderful felt embroidered labrador in Santa hat decoration for your Christmas tree (or anywhere else you may wish to display him). Made to order so the ribbon colour may differ, this delightful cutie can be on his way to you for £5.68 (incl. UK postage).
Our last item this week is this fantastic Christmas card from Leas Cards & Gifts. Normally £4, you can get this cute Santa card for just £3.25 (incl. UK postage).
