Oh hey pretty patches!

Posted on 8th March 2017 by Hayley & Lucas

Say hello to our brand new embroidered patches! We launch the new collection with two designs which are perfect for Mother's Day (but we'll have many more to come in the future)! 

'Mother Unlike Any Other' has been embroidered in black thread on a beautiful blush pink felt background with easy to iron on backing. A lovely embroidered felt patch for all the mamas doing it their own way!

'Mighty Fine Mother' has been embroidered in metallic gold thread on a black twill background. A lovely little gift for all those mighty fine mothers out there!

Our patches are perfect for jazzing up jackets, totes, backpacks and all sorts of other items. They are the ideal size for popping inside a birthday or Mother's Day card as a little extra treat! They will be supplied with a card detailing application instructions.


As well as selling the patches individually we are also offering them ready-applied to our lovely canvas pouches and makeup bags! Stuff these pouches full of little treats and voila!, a perfect gift for a perfect mum! Our little and large canvas pouches are extremely versatile, they make a stylish clutch, are perfect for carrying handbag essentials, ideal for storing makeup and are terribly useful when travelling.

These lovely patches are also available applied to our brand new black and natural makeup bags. This new style is perfect for when out and about and are just the right size for all your makeup essentials. With their waterproof lining they make a great little wash bag too.

Hi March!

Posted on 1st March 2017 by Hayley & Lucas

Happy March everyone!

We're not quite sure how it's March already but we're not complaining, Spring is now in sight! We've got a pretty long to-do list for this month, including finalising a new summer/travel collection, working on new additions to our wedding range, and introducing a brand new collection of enamel pin badges, embroidered patches and wash bags! Mother's Day is at the end of the month and we are also busy adding a whole bunch of new items that your mama will love! 

New month means a new birthstone! If you've got a March birthday or know someone who has then do take a peek at our pretty Aquamarine pouches! We absolutely love the colours in this one!

Excited to share a bunch of new releases today! 

At long last we have extended our collection of black cotton totes, hooray! We've got one for all the amazing mamas, something for sleepy souls and one for totally organised individuals (or those who are faking it)!  

Each design has been printed in white on lovely black cotton. Lovingly stitched and printed in the UK using terrific heavy weight cotton.

We have also added a few new bits which would make perfect gifts for Mother's Day, which is now fast approaching! There's our 'Mother of All Mothers' extra large pouch, ideal for storing nappies, wipes and baby essentials. This large clutch is perfect for mums looking to carry baby supplies in style when out and about and is also perfect for storing makeup and travel essentials. The perfect gift for that special mama who needs a little reminder that she is the mother of all mothers! 

Also new today is our 'You Look Lovely Today Mum' ombré makeup bag. Our cosmetics bags are ideal for when out and about and just the right size for all your makeup essentials. The design has been printed in hot pink on a white canvas and hot pink ombré makeup bag. The interior is lined with hot pink nylon taffeta.
