Writer, illustrator and designer, Mandy Sutcliffe has created an imaginary world of Belle & Boo; Belle a curious little girl with bobbed hair delighting in the world around her; and Boo, Belle’s adorable bunny rabbit companion and confidant.
From her wonderfully charming illustration’s Mandy has brought to life the vintage clothing that Belle wears on her many adventures.
Here is one of my favourites, its Boo’s winter coat, that they bring out every year in a new colour. The quality makes it an heirloom piece, crafted from 100% Merino wool, hand embroidered and lined with 100% cotton Belle & Boo signature print fabric.
Or perhaps this Vintage Shirt Dress; I so wish I had a little girl, these darling dresses would certainly be hanging in her wardrobe.
Mandy has written nine books, one of which is Belle & Boo, The Very Merry Christmas, a wonderful gift for a little one this Christmas.
She has also designed five wonderful Sticker Books, with over 135 pretty stickers and lots of outfits and accessories to choose from, these gorgeous sticker book are guaranteed to keep little hands busy for hours.
Or what about her three charming Craft Books, containing innovative makes, suitable for all levels of sewers, stickers and colourers with projects having varying degrees of difficulty. All projects come with step by step guides and templates and to help those new to sewing, there are full instructions for techniques used.
We love Belle & Boo…
