New Little Friends

Just wanted to introduce our new little friends. Met Megan the cat and Toby the dog.

The inspiration for both of these little friends came from by visit to our local fabric shop. I came back with bags full of beautiful fabrics in a variety of colours and textures, perhaps a few too many, but I'm sure they will all be put too good use. There was too pieces of beautiful brushed cotton in there which just screamed dog to me and well if your making a dog why not a cat. And so Toby and Megan where born.

Toby and Megan will make a great friend for any child or adult. Will you take them home?

Toby and Megan are both available on our website

New Purses and Wallets

New Collection of Purses and Wallets

Over the last couple of weeks I've been designing and making a collection of fun children's purses and wallets.

Each purse is handmade from brightly coloured felt, all beautifully lined. Each purse or wallet features a cute design appliqued to the front.
Choose from animals, birds, flowers, monsters or fish.


And not just for the kids I'm even carrying one round in my own bag. A great way to store the loss change or other little bits and pieces.

All purses and wallets are available on my website

New Baby Shoes


Over the last couple of weeks I have been busy designing some new baby shoes.  I had great fun hunting through my fabric store looking for materials.  I went in there not knowing what the end product would look like just that they would be baby shoes so my mind was wide open.  I came out with bags of fabrics, along with buttons, threads and what ever else caught my eye. 

From this have come 3 new designs for baby shoes, elephants, cars, and flowers.  I have to say I'm particually pleased with these new designs.  And I still have plenty of fabric left so look out for plenty of new products over the next coming months, including our new Autumn / Winter Clothes range for your little ones.

All our new baby shoes are available on our website

Bernie is the latest addition to With Hugs and Kisses products.  Bernie is a loveable little owl, full of mischief with his polka dot tummy and patterned wings he is full of character.  

I just love owls I think they are so cute, with there huge eyes.  And I feel in love with this polka dot fabric, so I had to make him.

This little fellow is the latest addition to With Hugs and Kisses products but he still doesn't have a name.  I've spent ages trying to think of one for her but have yet to come up with anything.

Any suggestions?

My Little World of Chaos

Thought I'd let you into a little secret today my little world of chaos.  I have to admit I'm a tiny bit jealous of all you crafters with neat draws and shelves full of supplies.  How ever  hard I try chaos just follows.  I like to think its down to having a 2 year old, but I'm sure my Mum will tell you its always been this way.   For me I just have to have everything around be.  Chaos = inspiration.    I brought this sewing box from a car boot sale the other day I just feel in love with it instantly.  The quality of it is amazing and the little sections are so handy.  Definitely a good buy.  Oh and there's my tin of buttons I just can't help collecting them, most of them I'll probably never use, but I just love them.

Anyway that's a little insight in to my world and you never know maybe one day I'll have the little studio at the bottom of the garden, with shelves and neatly arranged draws.  A girl can always  dream!

With Hugs and Kisses products are now available at Dream Aid.  A wonderful site which  will help people in poorer countries to get there products to markets outside their normal reach, enabling poorer people to make more money then they can selling within their own area and also reduce the the amount they have to sell through agents (who sometimes take a large profit)

A truly worth while cause.  

With Hugs and Kisses is donating a percentage of all sales made through this site to the cause. Please come visit us at Dream Aid

I created my first Etsy treasury yesterday titled "Day at the Seaside".  Had so much fun creating it, there are so many talented Etsy members.  Please take a look

Included in the treasury is this beautiful print by fellow etsy member lindsayart and one of our favourite  dresses from With Hugs and Kisses new collection

Ok so this is my first entry in my blog.

I just had to tell you about this gorgeous dress I've been making.  I found this lovely animal print fabric in my huge, (and I mean huge) fabric box and have been waiting for ages for the opportunity to use, then the  idea came to me what better then a giraffe dress.  What kid doesn't love giraffes. And I'm already working on the boys dungarees just so the boys aren't left out.

This dress is part of my new children's / babies summer clothing collection, due to launch at the end of June.  We're all very excited about it.  Selected items are already available in my Etsy and Misi store
