I've (very flatteringly, thank you all so much) had a couple of queries on the t-shirts. So here's the small print.
I can make them in any size you like. I get the t-shirts, or vests (for babies) from John Lewis so they're good quality and wash well.
The fabric is all Liberty print (I'm not sure if you can see that in the pictures, but it is) and so basically you can specify any colour you like and I'll just make sure I've got something appropriate, or I'd happily do something specific (spots, stripes etc) if anyone had any great ideas.
I could, also, by discussion, do other items too (I've done a duvet cover for L with a big flower on it, and another friend has suggested towels which I think would be rather nice).
Basically the sky's the limit and I'm happy to do whatever people want. Three hitches:
1. I can't do anything before Christmas... I'd love to but I've got to do some for S and A (who will be one on Friday!) on top of everything else.
2. The timescale is two weeks from order to delivery.
3. If anyone has a particuarly long name we may have to think creatively - so all you Persephones out there, would initials do instead? Or long sleeves and the name down the arm?
And the real nitty gritty. The price. I'm just going to go with what they set at the shop which is £25.99. Part of me is aghast, part is delighted that they think that's what they're worth, but either way, I've said I won't undercut them. Things other than t-shirts by negotiation.
Oh, and if you're still reading. At Brit in Bosnia's suggestion I'm going to set up a BMB group for crafty mums selling crafty things. One for this evening when I haven't got babies who need getting up, but I'll let you know when it's up and running so let me know if you're interested in joining.
How should we talk to children about terrorism?
