A Lovely Trade!

I think I have mentioned before, I love to do trades with other mamas. I had the privilege to work with a wonderful knitting mama over the past couple months as we both completed some wonderful items. I absolutely can not wait to get my hands on the adorable knit woolies she has created for me. Here are the items I made for her.

Here is a large wetbag with a snapping handle and a matching small wetbag. These are done in Michael Miller's "Rustic Guitars" print. I love this adorable print!
This is the very last of my Butterfly Frenzy print made into a medium wetbag. It comes complete with a pocket full of soft bamboo wipe-ups!
Two of my round two Quick Dry fitteds in a very cute multicolored owls print. These diapers have a cotton outer, squishy soft bamboo velour inner, a hidden layers of bamboo fleece and bamboo fleece soakers topped with velour. These two feature snaps with engraved owls.
And last but not least, my "surprise soaker". I so hope you like it, Mama! This medium soaker is made with the softest cashmere wool I have ever felt. The embellishments on the back hold a very special meaning for me. The mama's embracing arms are full of openness and love as the tiny baby grows in her heart.

Teeny Tiny PREEMIE Diapers!

When my daughter was born, we were expecting a very tiny peanut, so I whipped up some very tiny diapers - in a hurry! Well, she shocked us all and entered this world a whopping 6 pounds - about 2 pounds bigger then we expected! She did fit her little diapers for a few weeks, but never on the smallest settings.

Well last week I was overjoyed to find out that her tiny stash would be put to use. A very sweet mama brought her tiny preemie baby boy home at about 4 pounds and really needed some diapers to fit his teeny bottom. And she was kind enough to share some pictures of her tiny little boy!

So without further ado...

...4 and 1/2 pounds of teeny tiny love!
To give you an idea of how tiny these diapers really are...
This picture is the fitted stash I had created. Notice the Iced Tea can in the center!
Here are some of the pockets pictured with my hand. The one he is wearing in the picture is the top left. I added a couple extra snaps and a crossover snap before sending it off to her. Glad I did!
