Review: Mum Made

Review Mum Made: When I was pregnant with both boys my nesting manifested itself in making them things, some felt slippers, a light shade, special frames and pictures. I am naturally crafty but I also wanted something that I could put in a keepsake  box for them. Little love tokens. So when I found out that Mum Made have developed a range of four craft boxes for new mums and for mums to be I could really relate to it.

They have four options in total, a mobile, a name garland, a nightlight and a photo montage. I opted to try out the nightlight as I could imagine it hanging beautifully in Kippers nursery. The craft kit came beautifully packaged in a turquoise box which fitted through the letterbox. Which is already a big plus in my book at it means that I do not have to run to the post office to pick something up. Plus it won’t get left out in the rain and ruined.

Things I love:

  • The instructions are very straightforward and easy to follow, in clear coloured pictures and are really pretty. Theres a little tutorial in the beginning which shows you how to do back stitch, so even if you are a beginner sewer you would be able to pick up the kit and make the night light.
  • The materials include in my kit were very high quality. There was a little note included which told me what else I needed, all I had to add was scissors, a pencil, a ruler and tape.
  • The colour scheme is neutral and would fit beautifully in all nurseries
  • It only took me one evening to make the nightlight. It was long enough to give me a break and to focus on some me time. But not too long that I felt like it was taking me away from something else that needed doing. Its a difficult balance to strike and Mum Made have managed it well.

I am really pleased with my nightlight and can’t wait to hang it in Kipper’s nursery, I would never have thought it would be so easy to make.
