Today is very exciting for me… my new t-shirts and vests have arrived! This marks the start of a brand new Little Squish.
I honestly haven’t been this excited about what I’m doing with Little Squish in a long time, so I hope you’ll all stick around. For over a year now, Andy and I have been talking about designing fabric, printing on fabric and that kind of thing but doing some screen printing with Nicole Line recently really was a light bulb moment for me. We’d thought about having a go at screen printing a while back, but didn’t really want to invest in something if there was a chance we wouldn’t like the results.
I ordered a screen printing kit initially so that we could customise our own t-shirts (because… awesome!) and then I thought about adding dinosaurs and other “non-girly” things to some of Eleanor’s clothes. We don’t really do pink, princess and girly here. My girls like all kinds of stuff and it’s rarely available in the clothing that’s around. That’s when it hit me… surely other parents have the same thoughts?
Anyway, fast forward a week or so and I’m ready to unveil the first two unisex products to start the new Little Squish range….
This super soft 100% cotton baby vest would make an ideal gift for that new arrival. Available in size 0-3 months, in a beautiful bright sunshine yellow, it has “brand new” screen printed by hand on the front. Machine washable and featuring nickel-free white poppers, these vests are all made in Britain.
You can pre-order one for the special price of £9, with free P&P until Friday 17th April, and then they’ll be available through Etsy and All By Mama for £10 (£1.50 P&P).
How awesome is this bright turquoise? I’m so glad I let you guys vote for the colour on this one. These t-shirts are 100% cotton and super soft. They are machine washable and are made in Britain. Each number is screen printed by hand, to order, as you can choose whichever size t-shirt you’d like for your number. Good news for your squishes who come up larger or smaller than High St sizes! Here are the approximate measurements for you:
Age 1-2: Chest – 29cm Length – 39cm
Age 2-3: Chest – 32cm Length – 41.5cm
Age 3-4: Chest – 33.5 cm Length – 44cm
Age 4-5: Chest – 34.5cm Length – 46.5cm
Age 5-6: Chest – 37cm Length – 48.5cm
(I’m working on getting larger sizes!)
These t-shirts are also available on a special pre-order offer… just £10 with free P&P. When they arrive on Etsy and All By Mama they’ll be £12 (plus £1.50 P&P). You’ve got until Friday 17th April to order, so what are you waiting for?!
You’ll have to stick around if you want to see what’s a happening next here at Squish HQ… but here’s a peek at a dinosaur that just might be featuring on some skirts and dresses soon….
