Introducing "Bella Notte"--Beautiful Nights!

After much testing, tweaking and more testing, my new night time diapers are ready for release!

They are just a squishy cloud of softness. Made from all bamboo/organic cotton fleece, they are super absorbent. They are turned & top-stitched to avoid any chafing possibility from serged edges. And right now, for this stocking, they have vanilla snaps, but I might offer colored snap options in the future.

I used my Stages pattern, so you can get a good fit, for a longer time, but with not too much bulk. This has snap-down rise settings so the diaper can fit multiple sizes. Stage 1 fits size newborn and small, Stage 2 fits medium and large.

They also come with my Snap-In Snap-Together soaker system. Each diaper has a smaller soaker and a larger one. Either can snap into the diaper separately, or they can be snapped together, and then be snapped into the diaper. This gives you flexibility in customizing the absorbency for your baby, without having to fold the ends of the soakers so they can fit.

When the diaper is set to the smaller setting, you can snap in just the small soaker, and then fold the larger soaker and lay it under the small one for more absorbency right where you need it.

The diaper also comes with an extra long booster that is 2 layers of bamboo fleece. Fold it in half and place it under the snap in soaker for 4 mores layers, or fold it in thirds and place it directly in the wetzone (up front for boys, in the middle for girls) and get 6 extra layers.

With both soakers snapped in and the extra long booster folded in thirds, you will have 15 layers (!) of thirsty bamboo! And amazingly, it is in a rather trim package.

I am stocking the first of these tomorrow (Aug 26) on my Hyena Cart--Heartland Dreams.

Now for some pics!

This is a Stage 1. There are 2 rise adjustments for a wider range of fitting tiny babies.

And a Stage 2:

Stocking time!

Yep, yep, I'm not the world's greatest blogger. Time spent online is time spent away from the sewing machine. BUT, I'm stocking Heartland Dreams on April 30 at 2pm (est). (That's my birthday btw).

I've been slightly, er, obsessed with knitting lately. I learned last fall (amazing what you can learn from youtube), and after inundating my family with knit wear for Christmas, and knitting all winter, I'm venturing into the world of longies/shorties/skirties. I've got some of my first offerings listed this week.

I've also got a variety of diapers--all fitteds this go around. Look for some One Size All-in-Two's on Mainstreet on Monday, May 3.

I haven't been doing much sewing lately. My FIL passed away almost 2 weeks ago, so life has been busy.

But I had a few items that I had just completed prior to getting "the call", and was able to get them listed to stock on Main Street for April 3. They will stock at 12:30 eastern time.

I've got previews up, so you can head over and take a look. :)

Guesting on Wahm Nation

Hey all. Just thought I'd let you know why you aren't seeing anything new on my Hyena Cart.

I'm going to be guest stocking on a congo called WAHM Nation on March 20, at 8am (that's eastern time). WAHM Nation is a congo associated with the discussion board Cloth Diaper Nation. The board is a place where you can talk fluff, and lots of other stuff too.

The theme for the month is "Cabin Fever Cures", and you'll see all sorts of things to help you break out of the winter doldrums and look forward excitedly to Spring and Summer. I had fun sewing for this one.

Here's a sneak peak of what you'll see there:

I'll be stocking Stages again

I've got a few Stage 1 and Stage 2 diapers to stock. I'll be putting previews up this weekend, and they'll go live on Tuesday at 10am (eastern time).

Note this is different from my usual afternoon stocking time--just thought I'd shake things up a bit. :)

Some fun and funky prints on tap!

Blog review and giveaway!

Stocking on a new congo tomorrow.

Come to Cuties With Cloth Booties tomorrow at Noon (eastern time).

You can get my new One Size All-In-Two, or a snapping One Size fitted. Also, my daughter (age 12) has stocked quite a bit of crochet play food (many patterns of her own design).

Here's a sampling:

More new fabric

Got this in last week.

The prints are all cotton knits. The solid pink is Cuddle Dry Microfleece.

And these are all cotton/poly velour. Sooo tempting to just wrap myself up in these!

Can't wait to sew with them.

On the hunt for more cute boy fabrics now.

Stocking Friday Jan 29

Put previews up tonight for Friday's stocking on my Hyena Cart, Heartland Dreams. New items will 'go live' at 2pm (that's Eastern time). This will be the last stocking to get the new snappiable/pinnable one size fitteds at introductory pricing.

Just a little teaser:

New fabric!

Nothing like a little new fabric to rev up the motivation to sew.

Got these today.

The 2 giraffe prints on the left are poly pul, and will become pockets or ai2's. The other 4 prints are all cotton interlocks.

I've got a custom to finish up, and 2 more in process dipes to finish, and then I can cut into this yummy goodness. It's already washed up and ready to go. Need to wash up some more bamboo fleece tomorrow.

These won't be ready for this week's stocking most likely, but I should have some done for Main Street on the third of Feb.

I will be stocking again this week on Friday (the 29th) at 2pm (eastern time).

Well, it happened again.

Didn't take long did it? For me to forget to blog that is. But, new year, new start, right?

I took most of December off to enjoy the Christmas Season with my family, and we had a wonderful Christmas and New Year. I hope you did too.

I started the year with a bang by unveiling not one, but TWO new diaper designs!

The first--a one size snappiable/pinnable fitted. The fit is almost infinitely adjustable with the ability to fold over the rise as much or as little as needed, and to fasten with a pin or Snappi where ever the fit is best. Adding to the flexibility is the snap-in snap-together soaker system. Depending on which soaker(s) you use, and how you fold them, you can achieve up to 14 layers of absorbency in the wetzone! In addition to the snap-in soakers, each diaper comes with a separate lay in booster as well.

Oh, and did I mention that Introductory Pricing is in effect for these through the month of January? You can get them for $18 rather than the full price of $21 that will be in effect Feb 1. There are some available on my Hyena Cart, as well as on the congo, Sugar N Spice where I was a guest vendor this month.

The second new style is my Dream Fit Stages. Stages are a multi-sized diapering system. Stage 1 is sized nb/small, Stage 2 is med/large. This is an economical option for those who find traditional one sized diapers bulky on newborns, but don't want to invest in a diaper that only fits for a few weeks like most newborn sizes. Stage 1 fits babies approximately 7-19 pounds. Stage 2 fits babies approximately 17-35+ pounds. The size adjusts with a snap-down rise. The snap-in snap-together soaker system provides flexibility in absorbency to the needs of your baby.

There is still a Stage 2 available on my Hyena Cart.

And, I was still in a designing mood this weekend, so I cooked up a One Size All-In-Two, and tweaked the wings to be a bit longer on the snappiable/pinnable above so I could add snaps to it.

I'll be debuting those soon, so be on the lookout!
