I don’t usually review businesses on this blog, it’s usually just for books, but when I received an order from Joanne at FairyAnnTeacake Designs this week I knew that I had to share my happiness with the goodies!  

 Creating beautiful bespoke clothing for children, Joanne stitches love and care into each garment she makes.  With numerous designs available, there should be something to cater to almost every taste.  The dresses that Joanne has created are breathtaking to say the least, and despite my begging polite requests, unfortunately they do not come in adult sizes.  

As well as the clothing, FairyAnnTeacake Designs makes custom hair bows (which can be mounted onto brooches, bobbles and hair clips), book bands and paperclips.  I ordered from the latter categories, something small that will be the perfect addition to birthday presents (and for keeping for myself) and can honestly say I am so overjoyed at how lovely they are.

 These are just two examples of the goodies I received, both are beautifully made, not a stitch out of place and perfect!  So lovely, that instead of giving these as gifts, I may well keep them all to myself and order more to gift to others!

 Seeing this when you open your diary is a lovely little boost, the clips act as great page markers and allow me to indulge my quirky side.

Although these items are custom made to order, they do not attract a hefty price tag.  As with all small businesses, you are paying for the time and skill of the individual behind it all, so yes items will cost more than from buying from a mass producing retailer, but what you get in return is something to cherish, something that shows love and care has been lavished on it and something to be proud to show off.   

The reviews on the FairyAnnTeacake Designs Facebook page speak volumes, customers are returning to this business.  High standards and great service ensure that customers receive their items within the allocated time scale, no mean feat when you consider that the dresses are made to order, measured to fit and are incredibly detailed.

Don’t just take my word for it, check out the Facebook page for more information, and if anything tickles your fancy, or catches your eye, why not send Joanne a wee message?  She’s incredibly friendly and so easy to work with.  If there’s a particular fabric idea you have in mind she will do her very best to track it down or find a suitable replacement where it’s gone out of stock.
