Images from the brand new MAIIKEstore in Hawthorn!

I feel like a totally negligent local blogger for not mentioning  Maiike before now.   Sorry Maiike!   Local crafter Aly Peel makes these gorgeous soft toys, scarves, cushions and quilts from re-cycled knits in the most beautiful soft colour palettes… they are seriously so lovely you must go look at Aly’s Flickr to really understand the cuteness.

Somehow, in-between crafting up a storm, being a Mum, and teaching keen young fashion students at RMIT, Aly has managed to open her very own brand new shop in Hawthorn!  Amazing!  …and it looks SO freakin’ cute, too!

The Maiike shop has been a labour of love for Aly and co, who have fitted out their gorgeous little space with a mismatch of reclaimed floorboards and, apparently,  ‘furniture sourced from the finest hard rubbish nature strips, trash and treasure markets and garage sales’! Nice one!

MAIIKEstore stocks all Maiike’s beautiful things, plus a brand new range of cotton childrens wear, as well as many lovely things by other local crafters – including ceramics by Alistair Whyte, jewellery by Dani M, organic wooden toys and towels from Muku and knitted items for adults and children by UIMI.

AWESOME WORK MAIIKE!
