We love Belle & Boo. The drawings make us feel all happy and nostalgic and every single thing that lovely little company produces is totally beautiful! So we are very happy (and a bit jealous!) to say that we have a very special treat for you. One lucky person gets to WIN a fantastic big bundle of goodies from Belle and Boo just in time for Christmas. This is quite possibly the best giveaway we’ve ever had!
This snappy little camera bag is from Belle & Boo’s book of Craft which Belle & Boo kindly sent us to review, along with S is for Sewing (Laura made the pull along duck toy last week which you can read about here).
So, no tutorial I’m afraid for this one – you’ll just have to get the book! The bag was easy to make and inexpensive because it’s made from felt. I’m not great at following instructions (in fact I am BAD and I get bored easily and would much rather wing it) but this was straightforward and a lot simpler to make than it looks, thanks to the wonders of bond-a-web. Amelie loves snapping away with it. I was kind of hoping she wouldn’t like it because secretly I wanted to keep it for myself. Damn.
Belle & Boo has been a favourite brand of ours ever since our Little Buttons were tiny. They produce gorgeous prints, books and, as we discovered recently, sewing guides and fabric. They also publish children’s picture books, which Harper adores: since reading their Yummy Scrummy Day book, she insists on only answering to the name of Boo and hopping up and down asking for carrot cake (Boo is a hungry rabbit).
