Oh hey baby…

We’re having a super cute baby fest over here at Handmade By Me thanks to all the lovely photographs we have received of your little tiny tots enjoying their Handmade By Me goodies : ) We do have to say that our customers have the cutest kids!!!

Featured above our some of our favourite 100% cotton muslin baby blankets and burp cloth/bandana bibs, our nappy covers, Big 5 placemats (which turn into face masks) and cushion covers.

We have also recently added our new Foliage colour ways to our range of 100% cotton muslin products.

Our Striking Strelitzias nappy cover made it into Living & Loving magazine‘s selection of Local is Lekker for Heritage month.

And we are also delighted to let you know that we will very soon be adding two new products to our kids range : )

You might remember we were looking to give our fabric off-cuts away to a good cause a few months ago – well the lovely Amander took them on, taught herself to sew and will be soon be providing us and her new business with some lovely new products to sell at various markets, as well as at the Handmade By Me + Windowsill shop. All proceeds for these products go straight to Amander and her new business, we are merely supporting her with fabric and advice, and a happy place to sell her wares : )

First up are these gorgeous little rag dollies which are now for sale (along with some other products made by Amander). Aren’t they just the sweetest? We can’t wait to see some of these in our latest designs. And don’t worry boys, we have monkeys and other animals coming soon.

And next up will be floppy kids hats for Summer! We are busy prototyping these with Amander so watch this space to find out when you will be able to get your hands on one.

If you would like to support Amander, you are very welcome to pop into the shop to buy some of her wares (they make great gifts), or email me if you might be interested in her making up some products for you.

Spring into September…

Spring has sprung and all kinds of floral motifs are in the air : ) We specially liked this one from Livingspace magazine featuring their Ed’s Choice. This is our favourite time of the year and we can’t wait for the warmer weather to arrive. And along with it, all the beautiful plants and flowers that we are so inspired by!

Spring is a time for rebirth, and if you’re ready for a breath of fresh air, you can have a look at some of the newest products we have added to our Biotica range lately.

Our soft 100% cotton muslin baby blanket swaddles and burp cloth/bandana bibs are now available in our two Foliage colour ways.

If you are looking for inspiration you can also have a look at how some of our happy customers have styled their own photos of our products. We’d love to see what you do with our things, so please feel free to share your home or DIY inspiration with us, or tag us on Instagram.

And while have been having a rather quiet time over the winter months, it is so great to see some others have been very busy at it.

The CDI (Craft & Design Institute), along with their new name because they are now a national enterprise, have just launched their new Design Directory 2017-2018. We were so happy to see ourselves included, and in such a big spread, alongside such a wealth of national talent. We are delighted to let you know that we have a few copies of the Design Directory on sale at the Handmade By Me + Windowsill shop if you are interested. They are R290 each. You can also order a copy online here.

Double love for us from Sunday Times‘ Home’s Ed’s Picks this month with different products being selected for two issues in a row : ) Firstly our Foliage on Green cushion cover and then our Prickly Pears hotel slippers.

Sarie magazine featured our Foliage on Pink wallpaper.

And Home Magazine showed us how to breathe life into our décor using scatter cushions.
