So I revised my plan and my intention has been to finish up at the end of this month. Again however, as April has progressed, my pain increased and while I'm doing my very best to stock up as much as possible for the time I'm taking off sewing, I've had to take a few breaks in between.
I have been diagnosed with SPD, which limits the amount of time I can stand/walk/sit...well, function really! So I've been taking it as easy as I can, and doing small bits of work in between. It's been difficult with a 2.5 and 4 year old running around my feet, but I'll get there.
I still hope to have as much completed as possible so you won't notice that I'm taking a sewing break. As far as you'll be aware, parcels/orders will still be going out, but I won't be taking any customs until August.
The plan is to make one last batch of night nappies, and add to the Minky Days stock that I have already. Fingers crossed I can get there before the end of the month, or before my body gives in entirely!
Really, something new when I'm taking time off sewing? Absolutely!!!
1. Side snapping Minky Days in AI2 and Velour Pockets are almost ready to be released. I hope to have them started this month and you may see them officially released towards the end of May.
2. 'Classic' OFSM no nonsense PUL nappies will be added to the range. These have touch tape fasteners so perfect for day care, dad's or other carers. They are different from many other touch tape nappies because there are NO scratchy bits to rub against bubs hips. Personally, I never came across a touch tape/velcro nappy that didn't scratch against either of my son's hips, and it didn't matter if they were 3 months old or 3 years old. It's taken 2 years for me to finally get to this stage as I wanted to make sure I found the right materials.
3. Fireflies...there seems to be quite a buzz around about fireflies. I wonder what it can be? Keep updated with the blog and Facebook. All will be revealed in due course.

Next on the agenda is the website. Its very very close! We're looking at 2 weeks until its launching. Perhaps we'll make it Valentine's Day! I'm going to spend most of the month making stock for the Nappy Hunt, so there won't be too much on offer other than what's already left from this stocking.
Coming soon are gorgeous nappy and leather soft soled baby shoe sets. The shoes are 0-6 months although in my experience they tend to last longer than that. These will be a limited offer and once they are sold out, that'll be it in the short term :).
So, back to doing some customs from the stocking. As always, feel free to email me if you have any questions. I will always get back to you so if you don't hear from me, please give the mobile a go - details on the website. I have been having significant technology issues!

So, in keeping with the versatility that Fluffy Bubs is known for, I came up with the dress/top. Sized to fit from 6 months to around 2 years, it is shirred and ties at the back. I was going to make them into straps and have them snap at different intervals for the sizes, but really, how uncomfortable would it have been for our little ones to have the snaps against your back.
Then came the nappy. I loved trolling through the embroidery sites looking for something to match. Loads of fun!
Last came the bib. They were an after thought actually. I'd been wanting to make function bibs for ages but never got around to it. These are microchamois backed. I hate when the moisture goes through all the layers of the bib and end up wetting the clothing anyway. The absorbency of the bibs of course are limited to the matching fabric, but I intend on making some super cute yet very functional bibs very soon.
Anyway, enough of my ramblings, here are some pics...
There is one more set to add named the 'Gracie' set. White with cherries, this was named after the daughter of one of my good friends. My lovely friend adores cherries!
Now, if I had more time, I'd be uploading more pics of the boys PJ sets. Perhaps the weekend for those.
