Watch the elephants go by, meet Little Bo-Peep and Little Boy Blue, and find Baa Baa black sheep’s bags of wool all at Lullaby Lane.
Surface pattern design student, Jessica Lane, 20, is nursing a new business in children’s cherishables and exquisite homeware. From Indian inspired, luxuriant prints to novelty drawing utensils this business twinkles with 5 gold stars.
Creating novel gifts since a young age and having annexed her skills in interior design Jessica decided to create something that can be kept and treasured. Focusing on nursery rhymes and childhood memories her current products range from gender specified cushions with Baa Baa black sheep prints for little boys and pretty-in-pink Little Bo Peep for the girls, rich and exuberant hybrids of elephant and flower printed cushions for the home and knock-out novelty crayons.
The Swansea Metropolitan student’s sewing is a stand-out and her 100% natural wool, sheep-inspired cushions could even make Mary toss her lamb aside for the beautiful children’s keep-sake. And her Indian themed cushions could sit competitively on the shelves of John Lewis’ home furnishings.
Her prices are pucker too – with the Indian cushions ranging from £15 and the kiddies keep-sakes coming in at around £25 – you’ve got yourself a fairytale price.
Starry-eyed Jessica said “For as long as I can remember I have always been making little things and this is my inspiration for children’s produce.
“I also love the idea of something that can be treasured like my keepsake children’s cushions; they mean a lot to me and I want to keep them for my children, proof that nursery rhymes never grow old.
“I have set a target to get something new made and put up on my website everyday to give people an insight on my products. I want to get my name recognised so that people can see my handmade items.”
This is one young-at-heart writer saying take a trip down Lullaby Lane!
