needle thread and lyla

New Products Coming Soon! Foldable Changing Mat, Toddler Rucksack, Baby Rucksack, Toddler Apron, Minature Teepee, Tag Thingy, Pammy (Pacifier/Dummy) Case and Clip!

All Needle Thread and Lyla products are limited addition or one offs as our fabric selection and product development is constantly evolving. Every item is pinned and cut out by hand, then ever so carefully sewn together using my trusty sewing machine in our Devonshire home. Fabric has been allocated to each item but not all pieces are constructed and ready to post. Products in stock will be delivered sharpish, however if it needs piecing together it may take me around two weeks to complete. If there is something you have seen and love but it is not quite right, please get in touch and I shall see what I can do to create the perfect item just for you.

Messenger Changing bags

To hold all those essential items that your Little One absolutely must have. With complete ease of access enabled by two magnetic snap fastenings, plenty of room and the possibility of everything having its own place. There are four external pockets to store wipes, snacks, juice bottle anything and everything you desire. This allows the inside of the bag to be a huge compartment for a spare set of clothes, toys, a book or two and not forgetting all your essential bits and bobs, has also got a handy mobile phone pocket. Our Changing Bags are strong but lightweight as we know the weight off all essential items is heavy enough.

We have a vision...

that our handmade, original and organic products will make your family life a little bit more unique. With the added warmth of knowing that together, we are taking care of our environment.

In July 2015 Lyla was born turning our world upside down and making me want to preserve the planet on which we live for future generations to cherish. I struggled to find organic accessories so my love of sewing continued and I made my own. Our vision is to share these products with like minded parents, giving them a feeling of warmth knowing that they too are taking care of the environment that they are raising their precious Little Ones in. Each item is handmade with much love and attention in our Devonshire home and will grow with your Little One and look fabulous for years. We have embraced our love of colour, pattern and individuality which is at the heart of our fabric choice and product design. Adding a splash of colour and fun to your Little One's room, your shoulder and in their tiny hands on the adventures that they go. Our aim is to continually increase our organic product range. We absolutely love what we are creating and we want you to be excited by our expanding range of accessories - we have oodles of plans for the future. As well as the shop we have the Needle Thread and Lyla blog where you can indulge in the developments of our business adventure along with our love of being creative, playing, exploring, shopping (Mama), walking, cycling (Dada) but most importantly spending time together. If you'd like to be updated on what's new, follow us on Facebook and Instagram, there are links at the top of the page.
