Save your fingers while you still have the chance.

Do you need to save your fingers from scorching from your steering wheel on a hot summer’s day??

We make these fun and funky covers designed to simply slip on and slip off, protecting the steering wheel from the sun and saving your fingers from burning. The wheel may still feel warm but not so hot that you can’t just get on in and drive.

Suits most standard steering wheels and it folds up easily to pop into your glove box when not in use.

We have a few ready to go, but can make in your choice of colours if you prefer.

Check out our shop for more info.

2017 – Happy New Year!

Wow! Can you believe that it is already mid January?

We hope that you had a safe Christmas and that 2017 has started as you planned.

It has been a busy time for us here in the cottage with some good, but unexpected changes. Most exciting of all was the arrival of our beautiful grandson.

This year, we will be focusing on creating some gorgeous new products, but in the meantime, please remember that we love to make custom items for you, so feel free to send us a message by clicking here.

Softies

Our softies are all handcrafted, right here on the Sunshine Coast.

They are made from high quality, 100% cotton and are fully lined. We use tough upholstery lining to keep the insides in, incase of any accidental tears or rips and all seams are reinforced.

Crest-a-lon fibre filling is our preferred toy fill to ensure we bring you and your family the best quality product we can.

We keep a small range of ready made softies in our e-store for urgent or last minute purchases. Custom made is our speciality, so if you find a critter you just love, we will do our best to make him or her in a colour way you prefer.

Contact us to place your custom request.

Hats!

Following from my post from last week, this gorgeous hat was created as a custom order.

If you see a product you love, but don’t quite love the colour, please drop me a line, I’d love to make something that suits your tastes.

Custom orders

One of the most commonly asked questions I am asked is  if I can make ‘it’ in a different colour, or if I can make something else in particular that isn’t readily available for sale. And the answer is, yes, of course I can, and I’d love to!

Making items in different colours or prints is fairly easy, as long as I can source the fabric you require. Just be aware that I don’t use cheap fabrics. Cheap fabrics usually mean cheap results, and end in a poor quality finished product. They can also be more difficult to sew, so therefore, can be more time consuming.

Yes, I can and do make quilts. These take time, though, so please plan ahead; way ahead!

And the age old question of cost? That all depends. It depends on size, number of different fabrics, pattern and time involved in making your unique piece…….. Of course, you can pop into k-mart and you can buy something similar off the shelf for about 1/10th of the price from the 30 others exactly the same that have been massed produced, and probably in china.
