Evening all. A VERY quick (the sofa is beckoning) post about this lovely new Map print teepee before they are all sold and this is old news. Only 3 left now! Not sure if I can get hold of more fabric any time soon so grab one whilst you can here… they are causing quite a stir so not expecting them to hang around for long. *Amendment… only 2 left now!!
Above is obviously how I styled it for the listing photos for my Etsy shop… but want to see what the kids did when they got home… ooooh.
Hahaha. Check out Dexies Autumn display in the foreground!
Hello, hello! I am so pleased to be able to share these photos of a design collaboration between Moozle and SCENERY earlier this year. Launched today on the Moozle Etsy shop to coincide with Dutch Design Week.
These will be limited edition pieces so grab one whilst you can!
Helloeee, happy Sunday! I wanted to post some pics of the Black+White Shapes teepee I made a few months ago and only just pulled out of my stock cupboard to photograph (I’d almost forgotten I made it, it’s been sooooo long!). I still love all of the B+W kids rooms and artwork popping up all over Pinterest and Instagram, especailly the images by Chloe @chloeuberkid (bottom 2 images above). Chloe is a contributor at La Petite Mag so as you can imagine, she has great style, her house is full of amazing styling inspiration and top picks from some of the best designers and interior accessory innovators around, but if you can’t stretch to doing a whole room over, you could always satisfy your inner interior designer by making over your doll house!

Black+White Goemetric cushion, by SCENERY, available on SCENERY here.
Black circles string garland by Haakland, available soon to order via Moozlehome.
I’m just going to sneak in this customer comment that came in on my Etsy review page this week #glowingwithpridehere
I cannot recommend this product strongly enough. We purchased a customized teepee for my son’s first birthday and it was of beautiful quality, exactly as requested, and will surely be an integral part of our family for many years to come! Rebecca, NH, USA
A little while ago I had the pleasure to work with Dutch photographer Maud Fontein on this really fun Moozle shoot that will be part of the new Moozle postcard set. The photos turned out really well, just like my story board, it was so great to work with Maud, we had an absolute blast – so much colour and confetti the kids had a ball.
This MIDI size Unicorn teepee is now up for sale on my Etsy shop, the gold cushion is by SCENERY, the white top that Dolly is wearing was designed and made by myself for the shoot.
*PLEASE ASK PERMISSION BEFORE USING MY PHOTOS. Thank you. You can contact me via the moozlehome.com website.
I have received a lovely new customer review today so I’ll share that here too 🙂 More on the Etsy page here.
This was our daughter’s 2nd birthday pressie which she loved the minute she set eyes on it! Kate was most responsive and made every effort to make sure the tent was customized to our specifications and also that it would ship early for our daughter’s birthday. The tent was relatively easy to put together. Although we have yet to perfect the way to stretch it out nicely. Kate was very helpful throughout and a joy to deal with! Thank you for this beautiful tent, Kate! Sharon, Singapore.
Hello, sorry for the lack of posts recently – I’ve been busy with orders, new designs and planning a new product! Very exciting, more on that soon I hope.
I wanted to share this interview that has just gone live that I did a while ago for Amsterdam Mamas, a fantastic website here in NL. You can see the full interview here.
I also have a lovely new customer review to show off…
Shipped super fast. I was nervous about figuring out how to put it together but the directions were well written, only took me a few minutes to set up. This teepee is so cute and very well made. Worth the price and my son loves it! Thanks!!
Many thanks Stephanie from Texas, USA for taking the time to review Moozle via Etsy, see more reviews here.
I managed to finish and photograph a new design on Tuesday this week (no mean feat), I listed it on my Etsy shop later that day and hey presto it was sold after a couple of hours, which is fantastic BUT, ment that not many of you lovely folk actually got to clap eyes on the thing… so here it is, you lucky, lucky people (yes, I have a dry sense of humor, not always detected in text).
How do I keep my kids busy whilst getting on with a few jobs after school hours? well I have a few tricks, one of which is chalk board pens (white wash pens), who needs a chalk board – not us! Looks so pretty when the sun shines through making patterns on the curtains and floor.
Hello, hello! I thought it was about time I did a little kids room up-date since that last one about a year ago on the Apartment therapy blog.
I’ve been so busy working on the Moozle teepees but I have finally registered the bunk bed design (I’ve had trouble with other companines stealing my images and dsigns and re-selling knock-off versions so I’m taking extra percautions) and so I’m finally showing them, soon to be listed on the Etsy shop – woohoo – sorry to all of you who have been waiting!!!

Some of our favourite story books here (especially the Jackie Morris Tell me a Dragon as she is based in our home county of Pembrokeshire). The little green and white guy sticking out of the bed caddy is an original Moozle plushy in Helen Rawliinson’s Shapes and Things fabric. Helen is a textile and lighting designer based in London (and a good friend of mine), check out her work, it’s lovely.
Some shout outs now to some lovely fellow Etsy designers I’ve purchased from in the past (I’m a fan of supporting small businesses and Etsy is a great place for finding beautiful handmade and vintage items).
Top left: Little Red Riding hood, this was a pdf pattern I bought for my mum – didn’t she do a great job of making her?
What a gorgeous looking family, their baby girl is so cute! You can follow more pics of the family on Instagram here. And her outfit, right? The headband is by A Tiny Arrow, gold mini moccasins by Mini Moxie, the sequined dress was made from a women’s dress thrifted by her mom. If I could get away with wearing that outfit, I would!
The teepee in the background is indeed a BIG Moozle teepee, these are proving very popular with photographers at the moment as tepees are still in hot demand for family and particularly 1st birthday photo sessions, there’s another one in the pipeline I’m waiting to share with you, Moozlehome Facebook fans will already have had a sneaky preview of this! ‘Like’ us on Facebook to be first to see all of the new designs, customer photos and special offers as they come in.
New customer review (lots more on the website and Etsy shop)…
Dear Kate, thank you for the beautiful teepee we all love it my little boy went straight in it and plays in it every day. Many thanks Samantha, Nottinghamshire, UK
Thank you so much, please keep your reviews and photos and Instagram tags comming in, I LOVE to see them.
Hi, I was invited by Fish Indie to be interviewed for their TALK:craft feature, a behind the brand Q&A series they run with Etsy sellers, if you’d like to read about how I started the Moozle brand, my fashion background and a peak behind the scenes, you can read the whole piece here, but if not…here’s a few tasty bits…:)
“I studied for my fashion design degree in London and after that worked in-house with some great designers such as Vivienne Westwood and Tanya Sarne at Ghost (back in the early 90’s when Ossie Clark would pop into the design studio with paint brushes holding up his top-knot).”
“I used to have a huge workspace, with 8 industrial sewing machines, a 15 foot pattern cutting table, 3 full time machinists, an office, a kitchenette and cloakroom…. Now I have a desk in the dining room!”
“That’s the power of the internet, it has allowed people like myself to create our own way of earning a living. Just like in years gone by when women used to take in sewing jobs, repair work or laundry to pay the bills, Those women were entrepreneurs, but were just treated like maids really. Now we are sewing things for people thousands of miles away instead of a few streets away. A cottage industry for the global village.”
Many thanks to Danielle for posting this photo of your Moozle teepee on your instagram feed. You can can see more photos and follow Danielle on instagram here.
I love to see how customers decorate their Moozle teepee, this pom-pom garland is a great styling tip, make sure you check out our other customer photos for more inspiration.

The design above is onto a MIDI size teepee and is called ‘Into the woods we go’, it incorporates some gorgeous Osborne and Little fabric. This teepee was a custom order for a family in the UK.
OOOO, I say, I have some very exciting news, the hugely talented Beth Oladipo, who designed the first ever run of printed Moozle teepees (above) has launched her own collection of beautiful home ware’s and style accessories – SCENERY you can see the full range on her stylish website here.
In celebration of the launch we are offering, for a limited time a 10% discount on all printed Moozle teepees on our ETSY shop!!! If you are a regular follower of Moozle you will know that we have never had a sale or offered discount codes so this is a first for us.
Just pop over the the Etsy shop here and enter the code: PRINTED2013 at the checkout when ordering a printed Moozle teepee. They are available in 3 gorgeous colours and featured in Junior Mag no less. The offer expires 1st Dec 2013, so just in time to get one for Christmas.
I couldn’t resist showing this pic I took earlier today of Dexie testing out the 2 different Moozle teepee sizes on offer. Teddy was actually soon evicted out of the smaller tent when Dex claimed it as his own, he just likes that one better for himself 🙂
There’s a pretty photo on my Instagram feed of the kids playing in the BIG teepee this eve, I pimped it up with fairy lights, and bunting, it did look nice, I had to prise Dex out and bribe him into his bed (with a bottle of milk and a cuddle) – think he would have stayed ‘camping’ in the living room all night if he could.
I’ve just listed this kids teepee tent design over on my Etsy page, the sun was out this morning so I put the tent up in the living room and these two crazies promptly moved in!
This tent is all ready to ship – snap it up while you can (I did manage to get them out of it eventually). It is the popular ‘vintage flowers’ design, with a lovely brown tree on the side with lots of pretty lilac and green leaves. The vintage roses fabric is original 1940’s and really rather special.
Here are some pics of a new design I have just finished, it is a one-off, not planning to repeat it, so grab it now if you like it. I can personalise it with a name on the other door if that tickles your fancy, just state the name you’d like on the notes/comments section of the order form. I’ve listed it on my Etsy page here. Gotta run, dinners in the oven… oooo multi-task me!
I’ve added a brand new colourway to the popular personalised teepee options – Fuschia pink with a pink felt heart, just state your colour preference (other options available on the website) and the name of your choice in the customer comments section of the order form. You can order via Moozle here. Or via Etsy here.
Here’s a bright and sunny tent I’ve just finished to cheer up a rather wet day here in Amsterdam. Bright sunshine this morning soon turned back to heavy heavy rain… AGAIN! but we were thankful for the sunny start and not just so my photos look better. This play teepee tent is on it’s way to Indianapolis now. I hope you like it Elle. To order a teepee similar to this have a look at Moozle for EU orders and at Etsy for international orders. More photos on Flickr.
I’m loving the big cotton bauble lights this customer from Luxemburg has added to the tent, it looks so pretty! This is one of my ‘pink flowers’ designs on the Etsy webshop, it isn’t actually listed at the moment as I have a lot of other designs I’m making right now, but, if you really REALLY want one please email me via the Moozle site or convo me though Etsy.
