Hi everyone! It’s been a while… I feel the need to post something…. so here I am with a quick catch-up of the goings-on round here! I’ve been super busy with my little children’s clothing business, Pink Bobbins, and I can’t remember the last time I sewed something for myself! So this will mainly give you an insight into Pink Bobbins. Enjoy!
Dinosaur prints are really popular. Annoyingly for me the High Street seems to be cottoning on to little girls’ love for them; I’ve seen dinosaur clothing for girls crop up more and more in stores. Luckily at the moment my dinosaur clothing is still going down well… particularly with customers abroad! This is one of my most recent skirt and headband sets:
These basic skirts are definitely my best-selling item, in all sorts of prints. Now I’m also pairing them with matching birthday t-shirts, which have been really popular these past few weeks – so many birthdays this time of year!
The most popular choice of dinosaur fabric is definitely this; girly dinosaurs! These dresses (and skirts) do really well. It’s the only fabric I buy from abroad and I can never keep up with the demand! The long shipping time is frustrating!
As well as that style of dress, I also make lined pinafore dresses; this Peter Rabbit one is one of my latest and it’s just gorgeous! I don’t use copyright fabrics but Peter is in the public domain, which is great! 😀 This fabric has been discontinued but new ones are coming next month so I’m looking forward to that!
I offer a few more styles of dress, including the party dress (pattern by Cottage Mama), which is just so beautiful! This got a lot of love on my Facebook page!
I also make hair accessories… mostly to match outfits (you don’t get that on the High Street!) but also sell bow clips in sets; can you guess what uniform these ones match?
OK one more photo as I love these.. these girly jumpsuits are just the sweetest (pattern by Tadah Patterns; Vintie Overalls).
Aren’t they so pretty?!
So that’s just a snippet of Pink Bobbins… if you’re interested you can always check out my Facebook page and/or etsy shop. Or follow me on Instragram @pinkbobbins – I know some of you do already and I am on there more than I am on here! 🙂
Happy sewing til next time…
