Since starting Hiccups&Juice in May 2016, it's been my dream to have an exclusive fabric designed for me. This Kickstarter will fund the cost of printing the fabric and I can't wait to see it come to life!
I asked Annie Swift (who designed the fabric) to include llamas and babywearing in the print. We discussed colour schemes and then she got to work designing it.
The final design is so beautiful and incorporates so many of the different things that are important to my customers, my business and me.
I wanted to also make sure there was a coordinating fabric design that can be a stand alone design in itself and I can just imagine all the different items I'll be sewing in it.
I have a wide variety of rewards available from a great big thank you to the whole caboodle. Be sure to get in quick with the EARLYBIRD offers though as they are limited to 5 backers only!
All rewards will be handmade by me in my sewing studio in Milton Keynes, UK apart from the stickers and greetings cards which will be printed by my chosen print shop.
Custom Shaped Stickers
The stickers will have a maximum width of 10cm. Instead of the traditional round, square or rectangular stickers, I have opted for custom shaped ones. Who do you know that needs a llama sticker in their life?
The greetings cards will be A6 sized, blank inside and each card will come with a brown ribbed envelope.
Nursing or Comfort Bra
Hiccups&Juice Bras are made from two layers of cotton lycra with a hidden elastic band. The crossfront can be pulled down for easy feeding access. Choose from straight straps or crossed straps. They're my most popular product and I've made over 800 of them!
Llama Undies or £50 spend on the website
Go for a matching set, the tricky thing will be deciding which fabric do you go for. Are you team Llama Trek or Team Teal Forest?
This is also the reward to go for if you'd like an item that's not one of the other rewards, i.e. a t shirt or Radiant Raglan in either of the two fabrics.
If you choose this reward I will set you up with an exclusive code valid for £50 to be spent at Hiccups&Juice on any item(s) with the Llama Trek or Teal Forest fabric.
Harem Rompers are available from 0-3m up to Age 3-4. With a dropped crotch and shoulder snaps they will not only last you longer as your child grows but they're great for cloth nappies too.
This is a mock up of the fabric design on a harem romper, exact pattern size may vary from this photo.
Hiccups Skater Dress
I launched the Hiccups Skater Dress back in April 2018 and since then it has become my most popular dress. The photo below is a mock up of the fabric design on a dress. The Hiccups Skater Dress (in the rewards) is a slightly different style and is knee length; you can choose from:
- capped or short sleeves
- boatneck, scoop or v neck
- lift up nursing access or not
- skater, A line or pencil skirt
You can view all the dress styles available Hiccups&Juice here.

I have sent the fabric designs off for a test print - this means I will be getting 1 metre of each design printed to check the scale of the print and it gives me a chance to sew up some samples to share with you, these are due at the end of March 2019.
Then once the kickstarter has finished, I will order the fabric and it will arrive in 6-8 weeks from ordering and then I'll get busy sewing up all the rewards.
If I reach my funding goal, I am planning on getting 10 metres of each design printed but the more you pledge, the more fabric I can get printed.
I'll also be able to get the stickers and greetings cards printed.
I'll be using a fellow small business owner for the fabric printing.
However much you decide to pledge, your money won't leave your hands until the project ends. Pledge now - Pay later!
Whether you are able to pledge or not, please consider sharing my kickstarter so that more people can find out about it. Thank you.
Risks and challenges
I am using a fabric printer I have used before so I don't expect any delays with the fabric but this is out of my control. It is usually 6-8 weeks for the fabric to be printed and then it is just me sewing all the items once it arrives. I have chosen realistic deadlines for each of the rewards depending on whether they are a handmade item or printed products.
The printed products (stickers, greetings cards, etc.) will be printed with a company I have also used before and they have fast and consistent shipping times so I don't expect any delays there.
I have printed a sample of the two fabric designs so as soon as it arrives (due end of March 2019) I will sew up some samples so you can see more clearly how the fabric drapes and the scale in the different items.
I want you to get your rewards as fast as possible - so I will do my absolute best to make sure you aren't kept hanging around and waiting.
Thank you so much for your support and your pledge - we can't wait to send you your Llama Trek items.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
