Last month we finally added a brand new product to our Etsy Store - our Mini Pin Banners!

Now Christmas is not the best time to develop, make and market a product but I'm (stupidly) impulsive and once I'd made one of these for myself and others had spotted it on IG, I was asked to make more.

Behind the scenes - Making pin banners in the studio and the finished banner hanging in pride of place.

Origionally I bought this fabric to make some curtains for our spare room and becuase I cant waste good fabric, I put the scraps to use. Combined with some wooden dowells left over from a stall display I'd made in the summer I sketched out a pattern and got to work on creating our medium pin banners. They fit around 25 pins on comfortably and can be hung anywhere. The cotton canvas is really hard weraring and can tolerate being stabbed again and again and again.

Christmas is actually a great time to test the water when it comes to new products and I guess this is becuase people are shopping more than they do throughout the rest of the year.

I took our banners to Jon at Ink and Stitch and got him to apply a couple of our designs to them. I thought that I needed to make the banners multi functional and boy, was I suprised with how well they went down. Every fair we attended we sold out!

Later this month I'll be listing both our "Wonderful" and "Jolly" printed banners. These look great hanging of walls of studios, nurseries or living rooms and can help inject a little more positivity.

Post-Christmas I developed our mini pin banner, which can be used to show off your very favourite pins or it is also a pretty nifty way to display earrings. The mini banner holds around 15 pins and is more compact (hence the name) they are super cute and I'm thinking of printing some tiny designs on these little guys too. What do you think?

By now you must have seen the new SS17 range from Tiny Cottons. Released on the January 24th and titled "Tribute" the collection features bold patterns, a minimal colour pallete and a throw back to the late 70s, this collection is both fresh and yet still feels familar.

I love the mix of knit and cotton pieces, it really adds versatility and will transition well from spring to summer. The mix of fabrics also means that it's super practical for the summer. Quick drying cottons for days on the beach, lightweight bombers for nippy evenings and oversized dresses and jersey leggings for active kids who long for comfort whilst on the move.

I wanted to share with you my favourite pieces of the new collection. What pieces do you love?
