    I'm in a creative dip at the moment and I'm not sure where to go. I'm trying to set up my own business doing personalised embroidered items and I'm not sure whether to stick at the baby stuff or branch out into more stuff for older children.... I've got to be careful on what I do as I don't have masses of room to store all the samples and my machine takes up most of the front room! I know you ladies will be honest with what I'm asking.
    I can offer baby ragdolls with a nappy and hat (boy or girl) in two sizes. A boy and girl in a bear or bee costume (not removeable). I can get an older girl ragdoll (3-4 age) or a ballerina or ones similar to Disney/ superhero characters.

    I also can do travel crayon/ pencil roll up holders or one that holds less pencils but holds a small drawing pad.

    I can also get a travel road so boys can take little cars out and play.

    Any ideas what you ladies think! all can have the child's name on them somewhere too!

    When William was born my Aunty gave us a plain white bib which shed embroidered with a pair of blue booties and his name. It's simple but I love it. I put it straight in his memory box. Maybe some newborn baby grows embroidered with names and birth dates or something. So cute and the kind of things us mummy's can never get enough of! Lol no other suggestions though I'm afraid x

    I'd go with something Like the pencil rolls, it's something I've considered making! I'm personally not a massive fan of teddies and dolls, mainly cos we have squillions of the bloody things :lol: but also in terms of storage, they'll take up more space for you xxx
