Welcome to Mini Melton, the home of unique, handmade and appliqued children's wear & accessories set up by me Jenny, mum of three to William, Edward & Rosie. Every item I make is lovingly produced in my home in Reigate, Surrey.
Mini Melton came to fruition as I am a lover of all things creative and learnt to sew as a young child. The name of the business arose following the birth of my first son William in 2009 who I used to refer to as Mini Melton due to my fondness for pork pies! In the earlier days the business focused on appliqueing baby items such as bibs, vests and muslins. However, this wasn't enough to fulfil my creative sewing passion and several years later I enrolled on a pattern and dressmaking course so I could realise my dream of designing and making my own children's clothes.
Following the birth of my daughter Rosie, I came away from day job as a teacher and channelled my energy into evolving my business. I love making clothes and am proud to say some of my garments are my own unique design.
I hope you enjoy browsing my collection!
If there is ever a window in the day where you can make an hour or two for your business, maximise the time by staying focused and don't let yourself be distracted by the household chores around you. For example: Before my middle child goes to playgroup we all have lunch then I quickly clear up and if there isn't a disaster to clear up or a pooey nappy to change I quickly set up my sewing machine. I then dash down to playgroup drop off my son and return home and settle my little girl in her cot. Phew! Then it's my time. Just about two hours if I'm lucky and I make myself a drink and set to work on my sewing. It can be a rush but that little bit of time for me gives me a big sense of achievement at the end of the day!
If the item is already made I will gift wrap it and deliver within 3-5 working days.
If the item is made upon request I will make it and deliver it within 2-3 weeks.
