Without them I would literally have nothing to wear...



I know there are mixed views on American Apparel. But I only have one really, I love it. I am not a snazzy dresser, oh no and if it werent for AA I would be pretty much lost. My staple wardrobe is a t-shirt and a sweatshirt and if I am feeling a little flashy a velour sweatshirt. So here above you see my wardrobe. I am very easy to please, and I love colour.
So there you go. American Apparel, dont go away as I would have nothing to wear.

Sneak peak...

I blogged a few weeks ago about Alice Gabb, well she did a rather lovely print for a bag for Custom Made while she was here. Its going to print on Tuesday so I am very excited. Here is a quick mock up, its not 'as is' colourwise so you will have to wait for the real thing to see colours etc. Its going to have a rather pretty badge set with it too.
I cant wait for it to be ready. Its also going to be a cushion too!!!

A while ago I asked you blog readers to email how you say hello in different languages, well this is the product of your mails to me. I know I know there is only English on the bag but the other languages will feature on the badges...so there you go!

PS- the bags not white and the prints not black!

Lovely work...


For the past couple of weeks I have been luck enough to have some help at CM HQ from the lovely and rather talented Alice Gabb
Alice has just graduated from University in Bath where she studied illustration. As you can see her work is rather beautiful and she is very very good at making things!
She did a super print for Custom Made which will appear on a bag in the store very soon.
Thank you so much for your help Alice!
If you want to have a look at more of her work CLICK HERE
She also has a blog which you can see HERE

Very bad blogger again...

I have been so busy this week the poor Custom Made blog has taken a back seat again. I am preparing for a couple of big fairs so its all been one big production fest and you know what its going swimmingly!
We have lots of new things that are going to make their debut at the fairs, the first one being the Bust Summer Craftacular. We did the first UK Bust craftacular at Christmas and it was ace! So now we are doing the Summer one- cant wait. Lots of my crafty pals will be taking part too so its going to be great.
As well as the make fest for the fairs lots of lovely stock has just left CM HQ for Hannah Zakari and The Red Door Gallery. Its been a busy week...
Thats it for now, I have lots more to tell you but that will be for another post.
