Merry Christmas

We're all starting to wind down here at Belle & Boo HQ and prepare for our respective Christmas's and holiday break. All orders placed on from now until 2nd January will be posted from the 2nd of January onwards.

We'd just like to say thank you to all our readers and customers for all your support throughout 2012. We're all so proud of Belle & Boo and we hope that shines through.

We made a little animation by way of saying thank you and Merry Christmas. We hope you enjoy it.

We look forward to continuing to share the world of Belle & Boo with you again in the New Year.

Love, Clare

Festive Stitching

We're so in love with our Christmas fabric and we adore seeing what everyone is making with it so here's a round up of pics that people have sent us or we've found online.

Susi made a pouch for a sewing swap with the Christmas fabric. Look at little mailbox bead! So cute and creative.
 (Thanks Susi for the pic)

Mabel and May has made some absolutely stunning things with both of our Christmas fabrics.
An advent calender....
A zippered carousel pouch...
 And bunting and fabric 'santa' envelopes!

Christmas Preparation

I had a very Belle & Boo inspired Christmasy weekend.

First, we brought in the Christmas tree which got decorated with the lovely Carousel decorations.

Then I baked some Dutch Speculaas biscuits in prep for St Nicholas Day on the 5th for my Dutch in-laws. Luckily the dough made lots of biscuits because I think I may have eaten half of them already. The speculaas spice made the whole kitchen smell like Christmas! I'm sure Boo would have been pleased to be involved in the baking...

I popped a Carousel Fabric Panel in the post for my mum and she's been busy sewing for my little niece. She sent me these pictures of her work in progress. She's not sure if it should be a little floaty top and matching bloomers...
or if it should be a skirt and have a matching top that would have Belle on her horse appliqued on. What do you think will be best?

Just a reminder as well, here are the recommended postal dates if you want your Belle & Boo goodies to arrive before Christmas.  Make sure you get in early and don't miss out!

Love Clare x
