Custom Applique

Made to order applique designs on t-shirts, tops, totes or backpack bags or almost any other item for you for your family or for a truly personal gift, in a design, style and colours to suit you.

Popular design choices include our Birthday Number shirts; children's character Initials; a range of vehicles including the tractor, train, boat, plane, digger and bus; beautiful things like hot air balloons, rainbows, watering cans and birdhouses; and a whole parade of animals including a giraffe, whale, monkey, unicorn, dragonfly and turtle. Special custom requests come in all the time and have recently included a bicycle, an MX5, a mermaid, a VW Bug, a lighthouse, a Landrover and even an ankylosaurus!

Being a twin family, I specialise in coordinating or matching pairs of items for siblings or friends. Just contact me to discuss what you need.

Items are created using a huge range of fabrics and designs - images show examples of items made previously - not all fabrics will still be in stock and plenty of other options are likely to be available that are not shown here and most things can be created. Visit our facebook page ( to see lots more pictures of recently finished items for inspiration.

Base items are usually brand new 'ready-to-wear' items from High Street or commercial suppliers and choices depend on availability at time of ordering. All augmentations, customisations and personalised designs are entirely handcrafted using my original designs and a selection of cotton, cotton mix, designer, commercial and premium fabrics in my own 'deliberately rustic' style. Finished items are always machine washable and designed with children in mind!

To purchase a custom slot to have an item made to order, have a look in our Etsy store. New designs or special custom requests are always welcomed - if you would like to discuss an order, a design, a bespoke item, twins or sibling multiple items discounts or have any other queries please do make contact
