    Now Mrs Hinch is stepping away from ‘The Pink Stuff’ and fuelling a whole new trend. To be more exact Baby Hinch, who was born earlier this month, is sparking the new trend – sewing baby toys.

    Hello Hinchers… Mr Hinch here. Yesterday, the 20th June 2019, at 4.11am, I watched my wife, the love of my life, bring our beautiful son, Ronnie James George Hinchliffe into the world, weighing in at 6lbs 1 oz. I didn’t think I could love Soph any more than I already do, but I was so very wrong. For once, I am completely lost for words. All I can say is thank you for your unbelievable kindness, loyalty and the most pure and genuine love we both feel from you all. I know you’ll understand that we’ll be quiet for a while whilst we take these precious moments in and enjoy our baby bubble. I will be spending today and the rest of my life caring for, looking after and protecting my beautiful wife and son. Ronnie, our darling boy, we love you more than we ever knew possible 💙 Henry, time to be the best big brother ever my boy 💙 Soph… your three handsomes love you and I am so so proud of you ♥️

    In preparation for her little one, Mrs Hinch posted shots of her making a tiny blue bear on Instagram. The cleaning guru documented her first attempted at making something from scratch with a mini sewing machine.

    She commented on a photo of the finished baby toy: ‘I know it’s so bad. But it’s my first ever time on a sewing machine and the first thing I’ve ever made from scratch! I will always keep this… you have to start somewhere.’

    We’ve already seen the incredible impact of the Mrs Hinch effect on cleaning supplies, but now it has branched into the crafting world. At leading craft retailer, Hobbycraft, there has been a boom in searches for sewing baby toy projects.

    Sales of sewing machines have increased with over 500 being purchased in the last month. Sales of toy filling have also soared since the end of May with over 8,000 bags being sold.
