New Pencil Cases at Little & Fierce

little and fierce

My newest stockist is Little & Fierce, a web store of ‘stylish accessories for kids with character’. There’s a few fun things for big kids too, like my fabric pencil cases. You’ll find three new designs – Disco Bunny Squares, Jammie Dodger Hearts and Say Hello to the Solar System – and these are exclusive to Little & Fierce; you can’t buy them in my shop or anywhere else.

Each pencil cases is hand-sewn by my mum from linen/cotton blend fabric printed by Spoonflower and has a matching colour zip. While they’re the perfect size for pencil cases, you can use them for all kinds of things.

Since I was having these made, I ordered more fabric and some new pencil case designs will be in my shop later this summer – here’s a sneaky peek! The what’s in my bag fabric is for mine of course.

And if you fancy one of the original Cakeify  & Friends pencil cases, the last two are on sale now at just £6.
