March Giveaway - The Daphne Tree

12/03/2014 - Matt Chatterley

Did you hear that? Spring has Sprung!

The Daphne Tree - Rocket ShirtTempting fate, I suspect, but over the last few days the weather here has taken a turn for the better - I'm even thinking about getting out into the garden to start planting things for this year! With Mothering Sunday almost upon us and Easter on the horizon, it's a busy time for some of you (isn't it always!), but I hope you can take time out to join in this months Giveaway!

Our sponsor this month is the lovely Nic from The Daphne Tree, who is offering a personalised baby/toddler T-Shirt (see end of post for more details). Her makes are really cute and I'm wondering if I should hide this post from Mrs Handmade-Crafts!

As ever, the rules are as follows. To enter, visit our sponsor's links (at the end) then come back and leave a comment on this post telling us which of their lovely makes is your favourite - which are you most tempted to buy?

Comments left before midnight (GMT) on Sunday 23rd March 2014 will be entered into the draw and we'll announce the winner on the following Monday. Entries are accepted at our discretion and the winner will be selected at random.

PS, if you're running your own giveaway, why not add it to our new competitions page and get some extra publicity? Click here for more information!

Now, over to Nic!

The Daphne Tree - CollageMy name is Nic and I've been customising my clothes since I was a teenager. When my daughter Daphne was born 3 years ago, I noticed that children's clothes were very boy/girl oriented, and I'm not a huge fan of pink!

I started making her clothes in all different colours with her favourite animals on, using retro and funky fabrics and stitching with bright embroidery thread. Some friends with boys were also frustrated at the lack of choice, so I try to make designs suitable for either gender, and with lots of colourful options. As people started to order more t-shirts for their children, I set up a Facebook page and Etsy shop, and

I'm creating different tops all the time! People seem to love that they can get a hand-stitched design of their very own, especially for a child's birthday for example. Some customers even frame them after their children have outgrown them, which is lovely!

The Daphne Tree - Dinosaur ShirtAs the business grows I'm keen to make more dresses and dungarees, and wall hangings and cushions for nurseries. My own house is a bit of a melting pot of all the things I make, and having recently painted our kitchen bright turquoise and the welsh dresser yellow, I can't be entirely sure my husband appreciates it!

I'd like to offer the winner of the giveaway a personalised baby/ toddler t-shirt, with any design they would like. I can make sizes 1-2, 2-3 and 3-4 or babygros in 0-3, 3-6 and 6-12 months.
