We hope you’ve been coping with the high winds over the weekend. We have to admit we’ve been blown away – with the amazing creations of 22 wonderful makers who’ve added to their shops this week! Yep, it’s another busy one, so batten down the hatches and let’s get on with our whirlwind tour of beautiful hand-crafted items new to #MadeByMums! 🤩
This week, we’re going to start with a look at some beautiful gifts that would look stunning in any nursery.
Lettythreads has a lovely multi-purpose baby quilt which can be used as a cot quilt (for babies over 1) as well as a play mat for tummy time and tickles. This nautical themed quilt can be yours for £59.95 (incl. UK postage).
Soozy Sparkles has a fabulous crochet rainbow sunburst blanket that’s perfect for those sunny spring strolls with your baby. This colourful and fun blanket, one to ‘show off’ in the park, is just £45 (incl. UK postage).

Some of our other makers have delightful handcrafted ornaments for shelves too.
Crochet By Lynne has Angharad, a beautiful crochet doll dressed in traditional Welsh costume and holding a daffodil, national flower of Wales. Priced at only £15 (incl. UK postage) she would also be a perfect gift for a birthday on St David’s Day.
Carrying on with the yellow and green daffodil colour theme, RavenMoon Fibre Art & Craft has a little fairy doll needle-felted from wool roving and merino wool fleece, trimmed with embroidery thread and beads. She would make a lovely gift for Mother’s Day or Easter and only costs £10 (incl. UK postage).

If you prefer talking to your cat rather than your plants, Sasha & Libby Gifts has a cute ‘Love cats’ sign decorated with loads of sweet little cats and hearts and has been reduced from £10 to just £8 (incl. UK postage).
With all this love in the air, how about treating yourself or somebody special to one of My Little Honee Bee’s heart brooches? At £4 (incl. UK postage) one of these brooches would be a lovely reminder to take a moment to feel loved and would look great on your bag or jacket.
Aurora’s Little Stitches has a pair of cross stitched Mickey and Minnie keyrings. These cute kissing mice would be a perfect gift for a loved up couple, and are available for £16.95 (incl. UK postage).
If you want to share your love for the planet, consider this fantastic Beeswax Wrap Making Kit from HandmadebyHelen. At just £5 (incl. UK postage) these kits are worth so much more as they help you reduce your use of disposable wrappings.
Following on from a sustainable gift, to one made from recycled beads, these sets of heart stitch markers will be adored by knitters and crocheters alike. Each set will have one large heart and three smaller ones on either lobster or lever back clasps for just £6 (incl. UK postage) and have been made by… me!
Nutty Knots has added to her collection of amazing macramé bookmarks. This week we are showing off one that has been made with three different recycled coloured cords. Ready to post, this one can be yours for £8 (incl. UK postage).
Speaking of bookmarks, if you are looking for a multi-purpose gift, CHARMing by Tara has added some more of her beautiful sets of giant paperclips. These can be used as a bookmark or to keep your papers together. At just £4.95 (incl. UK postage) this featured Under the Sea themed set can be on its way to you.
If you’re anything like me, reading means relaxation, and a perfect gift to help you reach that wonderful state of mind would be some soft lighting and a calming scent.
New maker Scentsationals has a charming set of four candles for £10 (incl. UK postage). These have been inventively created to look like cup cakes, and make delightful ornaments… until you can bring yourself to light them as they look good enough to eat!
Fellow new maker Sizzle Scentz has added a selection of sizzlers in different scents. Including this out of this world 100g bag of ‘Alien’ fragrance coated salt granules for just £3.50 (incl. UK postage). As they don’t melt you can tip the cooled dry granules away when you want to start your new fragrance.
If you are looking for a special item or jewellery for the man in your life, Nikki’s Handmade Gifts has added a Red Agate & Black Bead Bracelet for £6 (incl UK postage).
Finally this week, new maker Wiffle Pigs has added some striking cuffed leggings for children. Ranging from 3-6 months to 4-5 years the SUPERMIX material used has a lovely variety of images on it for when your little one can’t decide between dinosaurs or unicorns, submarines or hearts (what a choice!) Featured here is the 4-5 year old pair that are available for £17 (incl. UK postage).
Have a great week ahead everybody!
