Is it a tea towel, is it a lion?

Well, it's both. This 100% organic cotton tea towel moonlights as a really fun craft project. With just a needle, thread, stuffing & scissors, the tea towel can be transformed into a really quite friendly stuffed Lion. This new product from Mibo has just won the prestigious 'Best New Home Product' at London's Top Drawer trade show and will be appearing on the Mibo website in a couple of weeks time.

As you can see, it also comes in fox.

I know what you're thinking.... "wow nearly October already and I still haven't figured out what decorations to make for Halloween yet" no fear, my friends, no fear. Or in actual fact YIKES BIG FEAR, because I have here ready to unleash onto the world 4 of the most terrifying and ghoulish spectres the likes of which you will have never seen. That's right, just wave these sacry little fellas under the noses of any trick or treaters and they will literally run screaming to the other end of the street, n'er to darken your doorstep again. Ahem, well that's the theory. TEAM HALLOWEEN is another fun print and make at home project and is yours for just £2.50/$3.95 from

A super fun styling job

A friend of a friend asked me to lend a hand styling her wedding: She had quite a simple request: 300 pink tissue paper pompoms to be suspended from the ceiling of the marquee. Now, I don't know if any of you have ever made one of these pompoms but they do take a bit of a careful hand - too much haste/impatience results in a pile of torn paper and a hissy fit. Fortunately I had a fair few visitors popping in during the weeks before the wedding and anyone who stepped over the threshold was handed a pile of pink tissue paper and was given a quick lesson. The house took on quite a different hue during those weeks, with the pink bundles of fluff lining every room....

even the cat got involved, though am not sure making a little bed out of them really helped the cause.

eventually after carefully stringing the pompoms into a van and driving to Essex...

we finally got them up in situ with the assistance of a very nice marquee guy with a very tall ladder. Job done! Bride and groom were delighted and the guests all helped themselves to the pompoms after the wedding was over - little fluffy mementos of the happy day.

New Animal Packaging

Finally our new animal packs have arrived - They are based on old jazz record covers with the animals posing as would be musicians. The inks are all vegetable based, the card stock is 100% recycled post consumer waste & the cellophane bag is bio-degradable so all in all a pretty green product. We have now got several stockists for them in the UK and around Europe with more enquiries coming in every day... plus online sales from our own site have never been better. Today I am experimenting with some new Christmas Creatures... will post some comedy prototype pics shortly...

New Prints

Over Christmas I started a run of limited edition screen prints for kid's rooms - and finally managed to squeeze in a few evenings last week to print some more. Here we have the same mouse print, but in green and a brand new print of a cat reciting her way through some numbers.
The prints have a rustic almost, tactile quality to them and the colours give them a gently 50s vibe.
