i’m going to take a little break from making carriers. i set them all as “out of stock” on the website, but may be open to custom orders on a limited basis in the next few months. do not hesitate to contact me via email, or to peruse the photos on the website to see what you might like to order in the future- they are not going away forever. i will very likely be restocking this section of the shop over the winter months, so fear not! these carriers have been wildly popular (hence, none in stock…) and i want to make sure i am continuing to put my best energy into making them, and this little rest will ensure that.
look for more activity here in the coming months as well… fall and winter are sewing seasons for me, and i always like to share what i’m working on. right now i am gearing up for some fitted diaper and wool longie work, and will be participating in a giveaway for wool week (end of october) on that mama gretchen‘s blog. be sure to get in on the giveaway!]]>
wool longies are amazing alternative diaper covers. they are my hands down favorite, and yes, they even score highest in terms of leak proof-ness! one of a kind items, so for online purposes these are exclusively listing on etsy, (while we’re on the heart theme, heart my shop there and you will get notified when i list more!) with some available at the farmer’s market. while you’re visiting me at the market, feel free to drop off any of your old wool sweaters that are destined for an upcycled life!
(can’t have this pair, i sold them last week! )]]>
i’ve recently added this feature: a strip of organic cotton ribbon for easy hanging to dry in between uses, because it’s true, you really will use it every day.;)
tomorrow (saturday april 23) we will be celebrating “a billion acts of green” at the oregon coast aquarium’s earth day festivities, where a mini farmer’s market is being held all day, hoping to raise awareness about sustainability and buying local. click the link above for info on hours and directions, and to find out who else will be there. we are excited to be kicking off our farmer’s market season in this way, and we hope to see you there!]]>
here are some of the bags at their current stage of finishedness, which leads me to think i’ll actually be able to pull this off! some are already finished with handles and everything.
some turned out too cool for me to give away and have been added to my own bag collection (you can’t have too many! or at least i’m nowhere near that imaginary threshold.) like this awesomely loud one, out of an old polyester skirt i no longer dare to wear for reasons more to do with length than the synthetic fiber factor (not that i’ve worn a skirt at all in 5 years…)
and one of the so-called horrid prints actually turned out quite endearing as a horrid seashell print bag, and both quinn and i decided not to part with it. it’s a smaller one, i’ve found those are nice to have around for things like errands to the post office (need a pen, tape, scissors… not much but enough that a bag is helpful).
but you can have the horrid kitty print and the daisy bed sheet number, just come buy something from me on may 7th! opening farmer’s market day should be awesome, it sounds like the newport high band is going to play, and there is going to be an awesome raffle-drawing type thing with prizes contributed by the vendors. and of course, the fresh produce we are absolutely dying for!!! oh yeah and earth huggy, with free bags and lots of organic cotton for your baby.]]>
available in small, medium, large…
and one love…]]>
i am now going to break my own rule. there shall be newborn size earth huggy diapers, even though i have not had the opportunity to use them on my own child. (my rule has been that i only sell things i have used!) however, i am planning on using these on a few newborn friends i’m expecting in the next few months.
also, i decided to stop depriving myself the cuteness- these are just about as cute as can be, and really, really fun to sew, and arrange in the leaves to photograph, and touch, and balance in the palm of my hand… can you believe an actual human being is small enough to fit inside this diaper?!
there are now newborn sized fitteds available in the shop in many different prints and solid colors. let me know if you’re looking for newborn all-in-ones: depending on interest, they can be arranged!]]>
