some August media lovin…

We have been very lucky this last month with products being featured in all sorts of different magazines and blogs. We thought we might share our August media love with you here on our blog.

Not only was our newly launched Geometric Orange LUX Panama Cushion chosen as one of 100 Beautiful Things in association with Visi at 100% Design, it was also selected as part of The 100% Design Edit in the Sunday Times Home Weekly section.

House & leisure magazine think our quirky Shweshwe Shields in Pink tea towel is a great way to introduce pattern into your kitchen. We couldn’t agree more!

Living and Loving magazine looked at choosing which colours will work best for your nursey and decided our Orange Squares cushion cover would be a perfect match.  “While red is a fiery, volatile and energetic colour that should only be used as an accent colour in small amounts in a nursery, orange offers a similar look that’s friendly, welcoming and vibrant.”

The Sunday Times Home Weekly thought our small Feisty Floral Watercolour on Blue lampshade brightened up their Nature-Inspired Edit. SundayTimes_230815SundayTimes_230815_2 FeistyFloralBlue_L_200d_4

good night sleep tight…

Its been a pretty busy last few weeks for us over at Handmade By Me! While we are working on lots of exciting things that we can’t share with you just yet, we can let you know that the lovely Giah has officially joined us as our new Junior Assistant. Thank you so much to everyone who either shared or applied for the position, and we wish Giah all the very best with her new exciting adventure into the textile and decor world : )

Now this is something that has been a LONG time coming for us!! Handmade By Me’s soon-to-be range of bedding. With all kinds of printing restrictions and issues because of the extra wide width needed for duvet covers, we have had to be a little creative in finding ways to make our bedding dreams come true! We started with a simple pillowcase and received our first prototypes last week which we got to test out over the weekend. And we are in LOVE! They are made using a beautiful soft 100% cotton poplin and will be available in a whole range of designs. Duvet covers to follow shortly. See our Pink Flamingo pillowcase in the image below. What do you think? Help us choose which designs to include in our range by letting us know which design of ours you would like to see on your bed!

And then thank you so much to Good Housekeeping magazine for sharing our lovely Shweshwe Shields purses in this month’s “the GOOD list”.
