Creating Newborn and Baby Everyday Essentials with Offset Warehousewith Charlie Bradley Ross
A side hustle or creative business usually comes from a place of experience; noticing that there is a gap in the market, or something you use doesn't quite function as well as it could, or there are more suitable material options available. For this reason we have brought you essential baby and maternity items you can make yourself. It may just be the inspiration required to take your idea to the next level.

The beauty of these items is that they can be made from leftovers, and yet also due to their simplicity can pave the way to exploring ethical and sustainable fabrics without much pattern cutting or sewing experience.
