Sharp New Shirts

New to the range of boys shirts are these uber cool Puffer Fish Tshirts.

Vintage style fish image in slate grey ink on the sky blue tshirt looks really awesome, subtle but eyecatching….(ok so that is a complete oxymoron but I hope you get what I mean?).

 

In t-shirts size 12-18m, 18m, 2 and 4. There are also a very limited number of tank tops available too. Found in FOR BOYS.

 

How adorable is my little model Cooper!?

And other things not on the list but I managed to get done….
More birthday badges
More birthday shirts
gifts for 3 friends babies

Slowly but surely getting there. And I am pretty used to dealing with the frustration of not getting all the things done that I had wanted to for the month…..so they will go in the In Progress baskets or just be put off for another day….or sometimes never!

And here is how I keep Esmae busy whilst I get a few jobs done.

She has been comando crawling for a week or so and is just starting to get up on her knees now.

And Sabre keeping herself busy by racing around the house on the scooter! It efinitely is not ideal to have her on the scooter inside but with the heat in the middle of the day and the current mosquito plague it is the only way she can use it.

Well ….things aren’t getting done blogging here………..so BACK TO IT!

London Calling

I have had this sunny fabric calling me from my stack for ages. Been dying to cut into it! Finally I am pleased that I now turned it into some summery dresses and skirts! The Molly shirred dress and Summer shirred skirts were the perfect style for this liberty styled floral…I knew it the minute I saw the fabric online. Robert Kaufman plays omage to Liberty of London and when it got here it was even better in real life!

I am in love!


Someone has had enough of posing by this stage!

Funky New Shirts for the boys

Did you see our funky shirts for boys?

The shirts feature a range of quirky prints and are the creation of Gibbs n Keri, who for many years worked together creating animation and illustrations for some major television shows.

The shirts are all original artwork and the clothing is dyed and screen printed by hand in their studio.

You can now find these shirts in store here: http://www.ollierose.webcitypro.com/BOYS.html

The ever growing list

It is funny how Ollie Rose is as busy as ever but my free time gets less and less.

I know filling the store is a bit slower of late and items are selling out fast but we thank you for your continued support and patience.

This is my ever growing list of things I want/need to make.

*NEW printed shirts for the boys-they are at the printers now so hope it wont be long
* Finish the new Summer Skirts in pretty florals and the Molly dresses in the same fabric. 60% done
* Finish the tanks for the gorgeous new tulle skirts. 90% done.
*Large Babushka Dolls-nothing cut yet but they are in my head to start soon
*Collage and printed artwork-some are started but lots of work to do still
*Top up Babushka Hair Clip holders- a few done but need ribbon for others
*Baby vests-waiting on new vests to arrive
*New linen bibs-fabric is here just a time issue…these tend to go to the bottom of the list
*Printed girls shirts-design halfway complete but still prob about 2 months away to be printed
*Skirt sets for the girls…want to go fabric shopping for these but need to also use up some of my stash to make one off’s
*more gift sets

Now this is only the priority stuff. There is still the baskets and baskets of half completed projects to finish and a million other things that need restocking or launching but the list above is my aim for the next 2 weeks. Lets see how far I get with all that…..anyone know how to add a few extra hours in the day?!
