Nappy and Dress Sets

They're coming! I have a few pics and will upload more to the website in the coming days. I have thoroughly enjoyed naking these sets. I ordered these Robert Kaufman quilters cotton prints a few months ago and had no idea what I was going to do with them. I could have made panel nappies, but I wanted to go in a different direction.

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...

The 'Sunshine' set - this reminds me of tropical punch. Very summer!

'Tahitian Princess' - I think this is my favourite! The hibiscus reminded me of my trip to Tahiti when I was onboard the P&O cruise ship 'Tahitian Princess'.

Perhaps my next favourite, the 'Emily' set. Why Emily? My favourite colour combinations are Pink and Purple, and my favourite girls name growing up was Emily. Simple :).

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.
