Those of you who follow my Facebook page will know we had some exciting news recently here at Little Pandas. My littlest panda has been chosen as a brand rep for awesome wahm clothing brand Bobtail’s boutique! We love handmade clothes here, and Bobtail’s boutique are a brand we have admired for a while, so to be chosen is such a big honour!
This week we received our first order (Pandas of course!) and I have to say, it didn’t disappoint 🙂
Beautifully made from the softest and funkiest fabric, we absolutely love it! Littlest panda is a big fan, spending the first hour after it arrived cuddling it. He wanted to wear it straight away, despite me wanting him to wait and keep it clean for the photo session I had planned. So of course it ended up with gravy down the front of it and the standard dirt that a 3 year old picks up around the collar and cuffs (how do they do it? Where does it even come from?!).
So it had its first wash very quickly, always a good test of workmanship and fabric quality! And it passed with flying colours. No bobbling, no sign of give in the stitching, and just as soft as when it went into the machine.
And so the day of our planned shoot arrived. I have recently treated myself to a new prop, a little vintage racing car, so we were both excited to use it for the first time. Of course, on the very day when I need him to go without a coat for a little while we wake up to wind and very cold temperatures. I tried to tell him that we would just have to try again another day. But he insisted he wasn’t cold and that we had to do it right away! So we drove round to one of my favourite spots by the canal, and walked the short distance to the perfect place.
I don’t need to tell you what happened next. I’ll just let the photo speak for itself.
“I’m cold Mummy. Can we go back and get my coat?”
I gently explained that if he was cold then we’d have to try again another day, but that was ok. But he didn’t want that. So I snuggled him up in my coat, and snatched a few shots in the moments when he felt warm enough. Then we went home for hot chocolate with lots of squirty cream and marshmallows (his current favourite treat!).
Isn’t this jumper just adorable though???
I’m really looking forward to the warmer weather! And lots more photo opportunities with my little panda. And of course, lots more goodies from Bobtail’s boutique!
