Time to dye....

Ok So my Overlocker is in the shop getting a service so I am unable to do much sewing, instead Im getting stuck into some dyeing :)
The only downside to the amazing vibrant dyes I'm using is that my camera just cant pick them up well enough! The photos are turning out a little dull for my liking. Maybe I might need to ask santa for a better camera ;)

I have been ordering more fabric from the US which has been great with this lovely exchange rate we have going on. I have some lovely ideas in the works right now, but sadly I lack the time to turn them out on the machines.

On the subject of time, my little baby is now 10 months old. He is starting to spend more time playing and less time sleeping in my arms, which is good as it means a bit more time for sewing, but also sad as it means less times for cuddles lol

I have been having some requests for customs lately which is great, I love to work with others ideas, and I find it often helps to create a product in fabric I might not have tried myself. its lovely to get others ideas for inspiration and work outside my own likes and comforts :)

Well that is all for me today, best go finish up the dyeing in my kitchen :)

Cute Cloth Cubes

Well this was my first baby item!
I will be listing these in lots of 3. You can choose pastel or bright and Boy or girl.
In the set of 3, one will tinkle with a bell, one will crinkle with some crinkle sheets inside and one will have some ribbon taggies. (Or you can choose your own combination.)

I have finished 2 articles and the about us page. I am starting to think late nights and lack of sleep might be a common occurrence in the next few months.

My awesome husband (who is developing the site) has set up our sites first email. enquiries@tassiemade4baby.com

So it's all taking shape, a bit like my cubes :)

Some Bits and Bobs

I have only just gotten back into the swing of things with sewing so had to start back at the beginning.I started with a raw edge belt, made from an old tinkerbell sheet of my daughters. (seen above)
Then I went onto a flange pillow made from the same sheet. (seen below)
This is the opening at the back:
I am already planning all the colors and designs I can make these in!

It is good to be getting in the swing of things :)

Day dot

Well today, after 2 straight days of sewing and website design, I finally got around to creating a facebook page and a Blog.

This blog will cover a few things. It will be a place to promote the website, keep people up to date with whats happening, show of some of our work and preview up and coming additions to the store.

Our website will have lots of information about baby and parenting topics and our shop will have all hand made items. Check out our facebook discussions to see some of our plans for the shop.

Our website will be up in a few months (we anticipate) Before this happens we hope to build our fan base and do a few give aways. We will also take note of any feed back and suggestions!

So welcome and hope you grow as excited as we are anticipating our big launch!
