Out now in the UK!

The pattern and instructions for these caddies are inside. I’ve designed them to take a CD stack lid as an easy clean liner and also to make them a little more sturdy if you so wish. I couldn’t resist adding some ric rac and a few vintage buttons to the green fabrics. These are some favourites from Newcastle studio, squares being their retro take on dots!

  2. Mandy I just bought that mag this morning at WH Smith. I saw the storage caddy but didn’t take any notice of the “designed & made by Mandy Munroe”. How cool is that! Congrats and well done. I love the caddies.

    Hi Mandy, thanks for your lovely comment just now, and also for letting me know about the PP mag being in Barnes and Noble, I am super excited about that! But I also wanted to say that I made a version of your caddy and posted about it to promote this magazine, which we are also both in!!
