Now it is getting colder we are looking for our favourite knitwear to put over our liberty tops.
A great British company we have recently come across is Bonnie UK, they do beautiful knitwear for children. Their collections are designed and manufactured in the UK and all made of 100% lambswool and machine washable! We particularly love the box jumper and cardi, both of which come in a great range of colours. These are pieces to cherish and hand down to younger siblings but are completely wearable for everyday activities, be it running on beach on a cold windy day or going out to tea in – just like Daisy & Olive! Have a look at their website www.bonnieuk.com!
We are very exited about this blog, we’ve been working hard at Daisy & Olive and come up with these fabulous liberty shoe laces which we hope and think you’ll love. They are original, fun and of course use liberty prints along with being practical, functional and useful.
This has been an idea after seeing girls in great outfits but rather plain shoe laces and we thought we’d like to change that and cheer up shoes with fun laces!
So firstly we sampled the width, thickness and length of the lace. Then when we were satisfied with all of these we selected three liberty prints that we feel look great as laces. We have used Clara, Junos Gardens and Katie & Millie giving us three different prints in three colourways. We made up hundreds of metres of the shoe lace. Now this took us a little bit of time! Joining all the ends, adding the thickening, stitching the edges together and we then we had to sew back down the other side! This long length of shoe lace was then sent off to a great factory in England to tag the ends, which they’ve done brilliantly using clear tags so that the print can show through.
Now we have the finished shoe laces in our studio ready to go but wanting these laces to be that extra bit special we have added a beautiful heart charm inscribed “made with love”. We know how girls love beautiful things and these charms just give the laces the perfect finishing touch. We hope you love them as much as we do and they will be available very shortly on our website.
