Felt Decorations

Theresa has a hand-me-down sewing machine, but prefers to stitch by hand while she listens to a true crime podcast and sips a mug of Yorkshire Tea. Her felt animals started life as Christmas Decorations, but she kept finding new ways to style them. How about using yours as a keyring or hung from the picture rail as a piece of wall art? Each one comes with a free keyring loop.

Spring Flower Card

Claire destresses from her busy day job by crafting these highly structured monochrome cards. Apparently, drawing the fine lines improves concentration and is super relaxing. Teamed with a matching envelope, these cards could be used for used for Birthdays, Thank-yous, or those just thought I'd say hello type of occasion. Claire's drawings change with the seasons, and we are currently showcasing her Spring design.

Each card will fund 150 breakfasts for children in Porridge and Rice partner schools in Nairobi making it not only romantic, but also very kind!

    Cuddly Octopus

    The hand crocheted octopus is made by Emma, our triple-threat crafter, who is equally at home with a sewing needle, knitting needle or crochet hook. Emma doesn’t do patterns, she just picks up a ball of wool, or a scrap of fabric and turns it into something beautiful. We think the octopus looks great as a decorative piece in the living room, or hung above a cot, or maybe just sitting sweetly on a bedside unit.

    One Octopus will pay for 300 breakfasts at one of our partner schools

    Please specify pink, blue or a lucky dip of another colour when ordering.

      Cuddly knitted hedgehog

      The cute hedgehogs are made by Jude, who codes computers by day, but knits by night. Jude can turn her hand to any pattern or project, but she gets bored quickly, so each of her items are wonderfully unique. Like all Porridge and Rice products, the hedgehogs are made entirely from donated or salvaged materials.

      The yarn used is washable at low temperatures, but to keep your hedgehog in its best condition, we recommend only surface-wiping when necessary. The polyester filling is also washable. The critters measure approximately 18cm long by 10cm wide, and are child-safe (no use of buttons or wires).

      Sparkly knitted hedgehog

      Ok, so the sparkly version of the hedgehog was originally a Christmas thing, but Jude’s got a soft spot for glitter, and there was plenty of yarn left, so she just kept on knitting them. And who wouldn’t want one of these dazzlers on their bedroom shelf? Or mantelpiece? Or pillow?
