Speaking of babies, asides from Clair’s imminent new arrival, there are simply loads of women with occupied tummies floating about the town at the moment, so we thought we would share with you some of our delightful baby blues and baby pinks, in case you feel like getting a bit broody with us and making something for a tiny little person.


Lovely soft pinks, in wide stripes, fine stripes, spots and flowers – all perfect for something a little bit girly, but not too bright.


Beautiful blues: cute line drawn wild animals, fluffy white clouds and tiny birds, and blues mixed with peach and white circles, for a not so obvious blue based choice – just right for dungarees or sleeping bags, or anything you fancy for the nursery.


Michael Miller’s delightful children-themed prints, featuring dressing up, playing games, rolling about with bears and pretending to be princes, knights and damsels in distress – all crying out to be made into something destined to be clutched in a chubby little fist.

And if that little selection doesn’t make you go all gooey and make you think of tiny ickle new people, then I don’t know what will.
