We’ve got two weeks left of our indiegogo pre-order campaign. Here’s a quick round up of what we’ve been doing over the last few weeks, in case you missed anything!

We have seven designers on board for the launch collection and have six sample shirts (we’re still waiting for Lucy Farfort’s design to come back from the printers, but you can see a proof below:

We visited the Children’s Wood for their Bake-Off. Laura Donald came to visit us and blogged about it.

We also sold some of these badges, which we’ve decided to offer as a limited edition reward on Indiegogo.

And that’s about it! Remember, if you want to guarantee a shirt before Christmas, pre-ordering is the way to go!

As ever, give us a shout with any questions, queries, or just to say hello!

Here’s the seven t-shirts in our launch collection. We have had a few enquiries from shops about stocking our t-shirts. If you’re a shop and are interested, please do get in touch!

Emma Henderson

Emma Henderson is the designer- illustrator behind Showpony.  She produces screenprinted textiles and products ranging from printed chevron bags to her ‘hot dogs‘:  wheat warmers printed with images of dogs (and the occasional cat). Her work is stocked all over the world, in a number of small independent boutiques as well as larger stores like Anthropologie, Urban Outfitters and Paperchase.

Emma also designs more complex, colourful patterns which are available through society6.

Emma’s designed ‘I Love Puddles’ for Mimi and Will.  It’s printed in shades of blue on grey marl.

Inside the virtual dressing up chest

My favourite kind of party is a fancy dress party, and my favourite tv show as a kid was Mr Ben.  So it’s no surprise that I’m super-envious of the costumes children nowadays get to wear on just about any occasion.

This dino hat, by Elf and Munchkin, would go brilliantly with our Supersaurus t-shirt.  It’s available in a range of sizes, and custom colourways are available on request.

If you want this next one, you have to be quick!  It’s reduced to clear at Lupin Handmade, via Etsy and there are only 2 left.  We have Lupin’s fox and panda masks and they’re a huge hit at dressing up time.

We find ourselves back at Supersaurus again – with this fantastic cape from I Wish I Was, perfect for little superheroes.

And these raccoon dungarees by WildThings are described for boys, but I know at least one toddler girl who would love a pair…  Our Treehouse t-shirt by Jolly and Hodie would look fantastic against the grey of the dungarees!

So that rounds up a selection of accessories and outfits for parties or for playing, all handmade in the UK by independent sellers.

T- Shirt Proofs: Jolly and Hodie and Lucy Farfort

Well hello again! We’re quite the ones for exciting updates, no?

We can now confirm that the sixth designer collaborating with us is Jodie Clay, of Jolly and Hodie.

Jolly and Hodie is a childrenswear range, designed and crafted by Jodie. The clothes are created using traditional crafting techniques such as patchworking, and the patterns are drafted by Jody from original 70s blocks. Find Jolly and Hodie on etsy and folksy.

This is a proof of Jodie’s design for Mimi and Will.
