Mikk & Me

And then she was two. The last two years have been rather interesting to say the least but we have learnt to live on little sleep and are getting lots of smiles, cuddles and cheeky antics in return. When we named our baby girl Sybil everyone commented on the ‘quirky’ name and there truly is no one like her so this custom made birthday gift from Mikki & Me is perfect for our much loved treasure:

Clothes Plasters by Jennie Maizels

This week all Australian kids are back at school, dressed in their freshly laundered school uniforms and carrying a nice new lunchbox. Time to sort through the wardrobe and make a pile of ‘after school clothes’, comfy garments perfect for a relaxing afternoon. You might come across some pieces with a little hole or some scuffed knees or elbows, don’t throw them out because of it! Grab yourself a packet of Jennie Maizels Clothes Plasters and your iron and turn those items into unique works of art, there is plenty more wear left in them.

Clothes Plasters are designed by illustrator Jennie Maizels, a very talented mum-of-two who lives in the UK. The Clothes Plasters are, well, plasters for clothes, created to hide and enforce the little holes and weak spots in your favourite garments so you can enjoy them a little longer. But they are not just practical, they are very stylish too with many gorgeous plasters to choose from in boys and girls designs.

You can buy the embroidered Clothes Plasters as individuals, pairs or even in sets with a special theme. Robots and army emblems for the boys, fairies, hearts and toadstools for the girls, or maybe a circus or London theme? Kids will scrape their knees on purpose when they see these. Once you have picked the spot for your Clothes Plaster you simply use your iron to attach it to the garment, instructions are super easy and fool proof.

Jennie’s talent doesn’t just show from the Clothes Plasters, the packaging is also absolutely beautiful. If you love her designs as much as I do you will adore the special Clothes Plasters Tins, each tin contains 10 different Clothes Plasters and at just $14.73 I think they are a real fabulous find. Keep some Clothes Plasters on hand in your sewing box for quick and hip repairs of all your kids clothes.

To find out more about Jennie Maizels, to browse the range and to order your favourite Clothes Plasters online visit www.jenniemaizels.com. Delivery to Australia is just $5.16.
