MooBear's Beginnings Part 1.


Moo's Rocket

We thought we would take you back to the beginning where MooBear Designs first started. Our designs predominantly come from Moo's drawings. One of the first designs was Moo's Rocket.

This is the original drawing she drew back in 2006 when she was 5 years old. Yep we still have it. I even laminated it! As you can see we stayed as true to the drawing today as we did for the first Rocket. Moo and I made her friend Paul a Rocket shirt for his birthday.

This is Bear in his own Rocket when he was 17mths.
He wore it till it was falling apart. His Rocket was made from the hem of a pair of my corduroy pants, Moo's purple T-shirt, Moo's red corduroy overalls, Moo's green terry towel overalls and Moo's denim jeans. We like corduroy a lot... can you tell?!


This Rocket was one of the first ones made when we were experimenting with colour combination. We also made our friend Tina a girl Rocket using pinks and purples for her daughter.


This is Bear in our shirts we have available in our MooBear Designs Shop.
They are available in 3 different colours.

Moo's Flowers

This is the original drawing she drew back in 2006 when she was 5 years old. Yep we still have this one too and yep I laminated it!


This is baby Bubble only 4 hours old on 24th Sept 2008. What better way to bring her home than in her own MooBear shirt designed by her older sister and made by her Mum. I actually had to make her a Rocket as well because we didn't know what we were having.
The flower stems are made from fabric place mats and still are today.

These are the flower's today. We use a mix of purple and pinks using printed skirts, girls pants, denim and dresses. The green centre of the flower on the right is the same fabric we used on Bear's Rocket 2 years ago. We don't throw anything out.


This is Moo in the shirts we have available in our MooBear Designs Shop.

So there you have it... That's the Beginning of MooBear Designs.
Tomorrow I will add another 2 designs.
