Wimbledon has started, the ice cream vans are circling and the sun is shining, which can only mean one thing...summer is officially here guys! I am SO excited to share the entire new collection of patches which hit the shop today, but first - a quick reminder to wear suncream team! It's hot hot hot and I don't want any of you little lovelies getting burnt! I'm in need of some kind of mist curtain of factor 50 set up at the back door! Until then though I'm slathering it on with a trowel!
Anyway, back to business! These guys have been a long time coming. I asked over on Instagram which of my pin designs you'd like to see as patches and there was quite the chorus of voices for the moon, good vibes, and little luna and her leaf! You asked, I listened - so thank you. I love being able to involve you lovely lot in the decision making and design process. Social media is amazing for connecting with the creative community and customer base! I always love to hear from y'all!
So alongside the familiar faces, you'll notice a little host of new designs AND some totally new styles of patch for onr.!
The collection features gorgeous detailed embroidered designs, sparkly metallic threads, and, most exciting of all for me...chenille! It took me SO long to source a great manufacturer that was able to produce tactile, rich coloured chenille patches but it was so worth the slog! They feeeeel amazing!
I don't know if any of you have been following me since the early pre-pins days of 2014, you may remember 'patch gate'. Basically the biggest debacle with my 'bloom where you are planted' patches where I ended up with FOUR HUNDRED incorrect patches. Two hundred each from two diffferent manufacturers who both f***ed up in their own special ways. Both of whom refused to fully refund me. It was really fun times let me tell you!
Ever since patch gate I've been super terrified every time I order patches just incase they suffer the same fate! Ordering EIGHT new designs, in the hundreds at one time, including all of the different styles and some pretty detailed designs was NEXT LEVEL tense. So when they arrived, and were even better than I could ever have imagined in the flesh I definitely did a little happy dance!
I really hope you like them, because this lot truly have been a labour of love!
Fuzzy little 'feeling peachy' looks SO perfect on a cap, or the butt pocket of your favourite jeans!
Luna kitty looks so good peeking out a t-shirt pocket!
Take the good vibes everywhere with you on your backpack or tote and spread a little love.
Bebe moon & sun look adorbs on rucksack straps, collared shirts...or baby/kids wear!!
Lets be honest, the monstera leaf looks ace on anything and everything! Especially a classic plain white tee!
...& this guy! You can't help but feel the love!
So what are you waiting for?
Get customising your summer gear & soak up some sun in styyyyle!
