Last Market of 2010

Tomorrow I will be heading into Morabbin to the Monkey Markets. This will be my last market for 2010, and there will be some absolutely gorgeous stall holders, including myself, there is about 79 stalls!! Definitely something for your last minute Christmas gifts.

One of these things would be my gorgeous blanket and nappy sets... great gift for a new bubba...

or one of these luscious red minky nappies would be fantastic for a gorgeous Christmas bottom!! 

or you could simply indulge in some gorgeous fluffy goodness for your bub!!

Some of the other stall holders are zee and me, Fuzzy Creations, Narelle, Mulberry Tree Organic, and many others!! So head out to the market and grab some gorgeous, handmade goodies for Christmas presents, or just for you!!

Groovy 80's (apparently I'm a youngen)

I was just reading Cam's blog, loving the old black and white photos from her childhood, I decided to share my own. (Although I don't think I have any black and white ones...)

as you can see, I was a cloth bub too :)  I swear my mother had those cushions until I moved out when I was 18 too.

I'm on the right here, doing some serious important reading.

And I was super glamorous!

and I only ever dined on the best cuisine.

I love the dress here (I'm on the left) I think that we were probably just sprung doing something naughty.

Glamorous me here, can't be seen in the bathtub without a hat!

Head over to Cam's to join in :)

Off they go...

Off to Fluffy Buns they go... 

Ive been working hard this week to make sure Misty's order is on time! I really love creating when the fabrics I use are just so beautiful :) I definitely wont tire of making nappies any time soon :)

Make sure you head over to the fluffy buns store and check out the beautiful stock :)

The Shop is also now in sale mode ahead of Christmas shutdown this weekend. So if you want your nappies before Christmas make sure you head on over and get some now! I will express them to you to make sure you get them on time!! You'll get a nice little discount too :)

The Dress

Today I finished off Ruth's Christmas dress that she asked me to make her to wear for Christmas. I think it turned out pretty well and she looked super cute at her school christmas carols tonight. 

Excuse the flash photography, there wasnt much light about!

The front... 

I used the corset style back for something different. I originally was going to use a zipper up the back, but despite my measurements I stuffed up the bodice size, but I think it was an alright save.

So now that is over, my little miss only has 2 days left of prep! **tear**

So today is Tuesday... or if you ask the wiggles, it is Taco Day (yes, I watch far too much wiggles with my son). I have been working on orders and also getting ready for the market all whilst looking after my beautiful kids who seem to know when I get up super early to be without them and sew in peace and get up at the same time to bug me!!

I've been playing with some of this beautiful red minky, it is so so soft and delicious!! I want to play with it all the time!!

On the weekend, I also took the kids in to the shops to visit the man himself... SANTA!!

At this point, he was receiving strict instructions to bring trucks and a DS for Christmas. Very important stuff here. 

And then after the formalities were over, the kids both gave him a cuddle. This is the first time Oliver has actually met Santa without screaming his head off so I was pretty proud. He might actually enjoy all those presents this year, although wrapping paper is such a fantastic toy!!

I have almost finished Ruthie's Christmas dress too! very excited about this as it is just gorgeous, I will hopefully finish it off tomorrow as we have school christmas carols tomorrow night!! So I will post pics then!

Until next time...

Market Prep Day...

Today is my final day of prep for the Fairy Floss Market in Doncaster tomorrow, so I am madly racing around between the many jobs I need to finish. 

I have sewn together a bunch of AI2 shells and am currently overlocking the soaker pads. I am amazed at how much quicker it is to make an AI2 nappy, I definitely would be packing it if I had all AIO's to make before tomorrow!!

I am also racing back and forth from the fabric shelf... surely I can throw together one more designer combination before tomorrow right?? right???

We will see, I want to do some more unisex nappies as I feel like everything is pretty much girl or boy orientated.

Anyway, must get back to work, lots to do! lots to do! Make sure you head into the market tomorrow and have a look around, there are just the most beautiful products at this market, if anything, I just love going there to drool!!

Tuesday's Hidden Treasures

I am very excited to have been featured on the Fairy Floss Markets Blog as one of Tuesday's Hidden Treasures.

I will be at the fairy floss markets this Saturday in Doncaster as well details below.

Fairy Floss Markets
Manningham Function Center
Doncaster Rd, Doncaster
9am - 2pm

Make sure you get along and check out the gorgeous new nappies, blankets, bibs and wipes I have been working on. I now even stock All In Two Nappies!!

Its been too long...

**blush** it has been almost 6 weeks since I posted. I have been so incredibly busy that I have hardly had time to come up for air.

I've recently started selling my nappies to a store called Fluffy Buns. The lovely misty is now stocking my products in her new online store. Head over and check her out!

I have also been doing a lot of markets and making custom nappies, which is taking up alot of my time. The boy has been very unsettled of late, he seems to have allergies which we are unsure of what they are, lactose it seems which for my cheese eating, yoghurt loving little man is a tough habit to break!

Anyway, I hope to be in more often from now on... I am slowly getting a hold on my time, mainly by getting up at 5am to sew, it is actually very nice at that time of the morning with no kids around to bug you and it is just you and the machine humming away.

Ive also been buying LOTS of new fabric lately, which is lots of fun for the production of bibs etc. I also acquired some Alexander Henry fabric recently at my local sewing shop for a highway robbery price of $3 per meter. I still have no idea what I will do with it, but I couldn't let designer fabric sit in a shop at that price and not buy it! I will post about that another day, because I actually got a few gorgeous things that day all from the bargain bin!

Until next time :)
