Follow us on facebook and check out our new little miss chief bags and latest updates.

I will post news and photos after Mathilda's Market.

Marvellous Mathilda's Market

Firstly we, at Miss Chief Designs would like to thank the Mathilda's Market organisers. We had such a wonderful day, although the early start was a bit rough, but we had a wonderful time getting to know all the stall holders. Next to us was Pinnigan, with their beautiful soft dolls.We were also across the room from an old favorite, Small Print. Sonia had her hubby working hard for the day, as they also had a stall in Eastlands. Once we stopped gossiping, we realised we forgot the camera, both mobile phones and our change for the float... With all the dramas out of the way, 9am brought the massive crowds!We were flat out all day and nearly sold out of 'little miss' bags, so look out for lots of very important little girls out there carrying their beautiful bags.
We received fantastic feedback. Alex, who runs a business in Sandy Bay, Forget Me Not, asked if we would like to stock our products in her shop! We also had another gentleman who grabbed a business card and our phone number and said he was also interested in stocking our products. so we were very chuffed by this stage!
I managed to sneak away and buy myself some goodies. I brought Little Middy some Huggalugs and a green nappy pack from Green Kids, Holly from Green Kids was fantastic, I normally wouldn't even consider green nappies for Little Middy, but Holly explained to me all the benefits and I was sold! (BTW they are fantastic!). Middy in her skirt mummy made and her beautiful Huggalugs

I had a first birthday party to go to on Sunday, so I wandered over to the lovely Ruby Victrola Letter Press and purchased a beautiful card for my little cousin.
Now that I had shopped for everyone else, I figured I deserved something.... I have always admired and followed Notions blog, so that was my first (and last stop). I spoilt myself with a beautiful bird brooch, which I have worn everyday to work and it looks stunning. So thank you Rosie.
At 1pm, we went home with massive smiles on our faces and very thick wallets, with promises of doing the next Mathilda's Market! BRING ON JULY!

Rain = Sewing!

Miss Chief Designs welcomes the rain today!We have had a very busy week, I have gone back to work full-time and Little Middy is now going to daycare. Luckily we had Little Miss (little Middy's cousin) come along to our visit on Monday and check it all out for us. She already goes to 'school' and needed to check that it had good toys, friends and the people were nice. Luckily for Little Middy, she also checked for "fires"? bit random... but you will be glad to know, there were NO fires! so if that was busy enough...We had to put down our family cat of 15 yrs. :'( It was one of the hardest and saddest days I have had for a long time. She will be sorely missed, especially by me and little Miss, as she was "Our cat" but what a life, did "Our Cat" have! RIP Loui girl.Today is back to some normality and we are sewing frantically, trying to get everything completed for the Mathilda's Market this Saturday, hope to see you all there!

My Creative Space

Autumn has arrived *brrr* so I thought what better time to make Little Middy some new warmer garments. I haven't really used a sewing machine a great deal before, well to be honest, I *cough* failed sewing in college (if only that teacher could see me now! *wink*). But I thought "why not give it ago" and here is my first attempt, of a winter skirt for my girl. Now what to do for my next challenge......... although I might make her a few more colours yet, a girl HAS to have the same garment in many different colours (to match her shoes of course!).

Dodges Ferry Market

Arh, the joys of having a market in your home town. Dodges Ferry is such a vibrant sensational place to be and the locals are fabulous! (yes, that includes you Mum!). I am still in the process of conning Mr. H, to move back down there. I have got him as far as Midway Point.

Anyway, Back to the market.
We met some very lovely stall holders at the Market on Sunday. and one of Miss Chief's favs traveled down for the day, The Bomb Squad, we LOVE these girls and their products

We also met one very lucky woman, she was admiring some of our bags, and about an hour later her hubby rushed back down and brought it for her, as a lovely surprise! yes we agree, we need to clone men like this!
My beautiful cousins and their bubby's (although one is still in the warm, safe place, of, Mrs A's tummy) came down to support and visit us. It was so nice to see them and they left with some lovely pieces.

The last Dodges Ferry Market (until Summer) is on the 4th of April, we would love for you to come along and have a look. You wont be disappointed.

And last but not least, a beautiful photo of Little Middy, wearing her new top, designed by mummy. xx

Lollipops and Dinosaurs.

Do your littlies get you to carry around ALL of their favourite things when you go out? Mine does, or she starts off carrying and then somewhere between the car and the market/shop/park/toilet she decides it's "all too much" and either drops them in the midst of a HUGE tantrum consisting of screaming, crying and general thrashing of limbs and shouting "they are too heavy, my arms/legs/bum/fingers are aching".

Well we have a solution (sounds like the beginning of a Danos ad doesn't it - sorry no steak knife here), get your little cutie a bag of their own.

So here is a sneak peek of the mini tote's and shoulder bags we are making.

Look for them at Mathilda's Market on the 27th March, but be careful you wont be able to resist them for the littlies in your world. More pics when we have finished them and one of these darlings will be part of a huge give away - so get ready.

Oh this last one is a 'one off' and so far it is looking mighty cute, well it does have sparkly beads, tutus, princesses and castles - a whole heap of girly goodness.
