Lady Bug Gift Sets...

A while back I made an Itty Bitty Pocket Diaper that was red with black snaps and my son named it "Lady Bug". I fell in love with that diaper and received many compliments about it. Several months later, I found this adorable red, white and black fabric that I knew needed to become friends with "Lady Bug"! (and the many offsping I have been creating all also named "Lady Bug"!) So I created a couple gift sets for friends that were expecting. The set below is "Lady Bug" with a pillow topped change pad and wetbag. "Lady Bug" also took along a wetbag and went to live with a very sweet mama and her Christmas Eve Blessing! My only regret, I didn't buy more of this fabric! I only have enough left for about two more sets.

Newborn Diapering...

First and foremost:

The past month or so has been busy with Christmas prep, family craziness, and trying to get some orders finished up as well. Now that my sweet hubby has revived our computer network and I can once again access my pictures and such, I will try to catch up on posts of all the new things I have been working on around here!

I finally completed an order for a wonderful (and patient) mama who is due with her 4th baby on the 8th of January. She has cloth diapered two of her children but this is the first baby she is planning to diaper right from newborn! Yay! She is keeping baby's gender a surprise, so we did up a dozen Newborn/Small pocket diapers. These diapers should fit approximately 6 - 15 lbs.

This set of one dozen pocket diapers is complete with a dozen zorb/bamboo inserts, 4 terry towel tri-folds that can be used as either insert doublers or large wipes, 4 two-layer microfiber doubler inserts, half a dozen fleece liners and one dozen bamboo velour/bamboo terry wipe-ups. (I forgot to take pictures of all the extras, oops!)
We also made a medium sized two-handle hanging diaper pail with matching change pad for her main floor bathroom.
And one more change pad. Both pads are constructed from an attractive cotton print outer, hidden waterproof PUL, hidden flannel for a little extra softness and absorbency, then topped with soft and cozy molten fleece.

Diapers! Bamboo Fitteds and some Itty Bitty's...

I have some requests for diapers and my own stash desperately needs a few new diapers as well. Some diapers flew out the door before I photographed them and some are all cut and still waiting to be sewn. But I do have a sampling of some of them here.

After getting a bit of feedback from my first round of tester fitteds that went out this summer, I have made a few modifications to the medium Quick Dry Fitted. I am working on another run of these squishy soft diapers. I have completed half a dozen, 3 for orders - 3 for my tiny princess! The elastics are a bit looser and softer than the first run, the soaker and doubler have been modified as well. The doubler is just up front, but it is a bit wider for more coverage. The soaker is now the same width at the front and back for better coverage as well.

Multi Owls and Pink/Lime Girly Ooga Booga Quick Dry Fitted Bamboo Diapers. I don't think you can see in this picture, but the brown snaps have adorable little owls engraved on them!

Now that I think I am ironing out my Medium Quick Dry Fitted pattern quite nicely, I decided to try out a couple Newborn fitted diapers! These two little diapers are not Quick Dry - they have a 3-4 layer hidden sewn-in soaker for quick and easy newborn changes. I did not make doublers for these as they have a total of 6-7 layers, which should be enough for the frequent changes a newborn baby requires. I did a front snapping closure with umbilical snap down and a side snapping closure diaper. The sizing on these should be about 6 - 16 pounds, but I still need to test them out a little to know for sure.

Here the two newborn diapers are pictured beside a medium Quick Dry Fitted.

And last but not least, some adorable side snapping Itty Bitty Pocket Diapers! These are just the smallest and most adorable little diapers. They fit from approximately 5 - 15 pounds. I had over a dozen of these, but sold all the girly ones and a few others, before I had time to photograph them. Oops! These diapers come with a new and improved, perfect fit, super thirsty insert.
Check for some of these to be listed soon on my instock page here or on my facebook page!

Fabulous Fleece...

I recently worked with a wonderful mama on a partial trade. Elaine from Tata Tushies, created some beautiful knit longie sets for me and in turn, I created some soft and cuddly fleece longies, a diaper and some beach pants for her. I love doing trades! They are such fun as you get to indulge a bit in some items you may not have searched out and purchased otherwise.

First are my oringinal Ooga Booga Beach Pants, featuring two snap positions to secure roll in place, leg and bum pockets, embellished knee, and an adorable little Ooga peeking out of the back pocket.A spin off of the Ooga's - I now have Iced Giraffes Beach Pants! These are adorable and the colors really show off the giraffes in the fabric.Next is a pair of Steel Blue longies embellished with a little train on the leg. These longies feature my Grow-With-Me cuff for longer wear.And last is a cute set including my improved medium bamboo quick dry fitted with lay in soaker and an adorable pair of small Ooga Girl longies.
