When you're a new mum with a tiny baby to look after, life can be daunting. That's why I decided on this Bible verse for this swaddle blanket - "you hem me in behind and before" - Psalm 139:5
Encourage a new mum (or yourself), by giving them one of these and remind them that they are held by our incredible God. He is sovereign and is always surrounding us with His presence and love. When you are surrounded by nappies, crying babies, yellow poo and no sleep, it's good to remember that God is in charge of all those things too. He cares about every nappy you change, every time you wake up He knows you and is with you.
These giant muslin squares are so versatile. They can be used to mop up spills (or baby sick), as a play mat to put down quickly when you need to put baby down, to swaddle them up in for naps, or as a light blanket in the summer. They are so light that they can also be used as feeding covers too. They are made of 100% organic cotton and bamboo, and will get softer as they are washed and used more.
Each muslin is handpainted and the Bible verse is hand stamped on using individual alphabet stamps. Every muslin is unique and will differ slightly from the product images.
They measure 120cm X 120cm approximately. Each one is cut, sewn and painted by me, Jenny, so each one will differ slightly and they will shrink slightly in the first wash and crinkle up into a gorgeously soft muslin cloth. Included in each order will be a matching, hand-painted drawstring bag made from organic cotton, to carry your giant muslin in.
Meet the Maker
Grizzli Bear is a small company based in London, run by Jenny (wife to 1, mum to 2). She makes and designs zip pouches, with Bible verses and Christian encouragements printed on them in colourful flock. Please allow 1-2 weeks for items to be made before shipping, but orders will often be sent out faster than this.
We are so busy these days, and sometimes quiet times just don't happen. I mean, with 2 little kids around my ankles asking for snacks every 10 minutes, there's not a lot of time for Bible reading! So, I made these pouches so that whatever you use them for during your day, you will have a quick reminder of your favourite Bible verse or sentiment, and it can really allow God to speak to you in the busyness of life. I now have a pouch for pretty much anything, a pencil case, a couple in my changing bag for the kids, one for snacks, one for my paintbrushes and pens, one filled with small toys and emergency books for when I'm out and about with the boys and get stuck in traffic on the bus or the doctor is running late. Really, they can be used for anything, and make great presents too.
Grizzli Bear started as an exclusively nappy-bag-organising business, making zip pouches in all sorts of materials and designs, but meant for mums and dads to organise their changing bags. However, things move on, and now they are used for all sorts, all over the world! When you need your makeup, pens and a notebook, a spare set of clothes for your toddler or indeed nappies and wipes, these pouches will remind you that you are so loved, treasured and precious to our Creator God.
There are a couple of personalised pouches in my shop too, where you can get a pouch with your choice of name printed on. Each name will be hand lettered by Jenny and printed in gold vinyl, so you will end up with a pouch that is unique and personal to you.
All the pouches are made from 100% cotton canvas, with all new designs being made with organic cotton, hence the higher price point for some and not others. I will be moving to all organic soon! Orders are wrapped in tissue paper and sent in gorgeous thick paper envelopes with a hand-written thank you card.
