Tora Shorts…….

TORA 1

Thumbelina loves to come up with new designs and name them in honour of the little girl she presents them to, and in this case, it was a sweet little pixie by the name of Tora, who lives in a faraway land called Sverige! Smile

TORA SHORTS

And here are the shorts I named in honour of her, a little pixies version of the Sweet Heart shorts for grown up girls, which can be found on my other blog, Little Miss Norway.

They’re knitted in a lovely organic 4 ply cotton, and finished with cute little crocheted bows and a sweet little crocheted belt.

TORA 2

And on this day, Tora was so excited about her new pair of shorts, that she wouldn’t sit still for her Mor to photograph her, so we thought we’d try again…….

MARIA SWEETHEART SHORTS WITH ELVIRA AND TORA

But Tora was so excited to see her ‘Faster Maria’ (aunt!) who was wearing her grown up version of the shorts, that she decided she didn’t want to wear hers, so her sweet little cousin Elvira stood in and wore them for her – and she looks very nice in them also!

MARIA SWEETHEART SHORTS WITH ELVIRA

Oh well, Tora was having too much fun anyway by the looks of things! Smile

Tora’s shorts retail at £30.00, excl of P&P, so if you would like to know more about them, you can contact me at the usual address of….

Welcome to the wonderful world of Thumbelina von Bumblechops

TVB AD CAMPAIGN 1


A very warm welcome to the magical world of my next venture, Thumbelina von Bumblechops, which will create pretty little things for the tiniest little persons of such loveliness!


And here is the little girl that started it all, a beautiful little vision called ‘Minoo’ and the sweet little legwarmers she is wearing in this photo, were my inspiration for my next venture, which is to recreate some of my pretty little things from my Little Miss Norway line, for sweet little pixies such as her!


I cannot help but smile when I see her wearing these now, as it was about a year ago that she decided to fashion her own version of her Mummy’s legwarmers for herself – by wearing her wristwarmers! Smile

And here she was wearing them……..

SIMONE 1


Adorable or what – look at the thumb openings on her Mummy’s wristwarmers! 'Winking smile


When I saw these, I knew I had to find time to start creating things for little girls, as it seemed like a natural progression for me, and so this is hopefully going to be another string to my bow (and I have a lot of them on everything I make! lol).


I always said that I would name the miniature version of my ‘Vive Maria’ legwarmers after this little vision of loveliness, and so they are called ‘Minoo’ Legwarmers, in honour of her!

MINOO 1

Minoo in her very own pair of legwarmers – and just a little bit more special than the first pair she wore!

MINOO 6

She obviously likes dancing around in them……

MINOO 2

Most definitely having fun! The dress is not one of mine this time round, but is by ‘Ewa i Walla’

MINOO LEGWARMERS 1 copy


These pretties are made from a luxurious yarn which is a mixture of cashmere, pure silk and extra fine merino, as only the best is good enough for such beautiful little princess’s! They are unbelievably soft and perfect for little girls! Winking smile


The luxury yarn version cost £40.00 and the extra fine merino blend cost £35.00, plus P&P.

Thumbelina will send a personal letter to every little girl the first time an order is placed – or, if there’s a special occasion, like a birthday or Christmas, she will be happy to put pen to paper again! Smile

MINOO LEGWARMERS AND LMN3


Mother and daughters legwarmers together – Minoo’s are so tiny……

Tiny hugs of the squishiest variety coming your way, thanks for dropping by!
