Birthday Present for Grace

A dear friend of mines little Miss Grace had her 1st birthday on Friday and today we helped celebrate this little ladies birthday along with her Big Brother who turned 2 yesterday as well.  And I just had to have a go at making her a little outfit along with a matching felt doll that seems to be all the craze at the moment.

I also added a little bag as she loves walking around with one on her little shoulder just like her mummy.  The pinafore and nappy cover are both reversible and you can find the tutorials along with the patterns here, here and here (the nappy cover tutorial is not reversible I changed it so that it was).

The little bag is just something I whipped up and will do a tutorial for you very soon.  The crochet flower on the bag and hair clip was made by me as well.

Hope you are all having a lovely weekend.

I have been really slack on the blog with promoting the showcase I am taking part in to raise money for breast cancer.  I have donated 2 of my nappy wallets and have been SHOUTING all about it on Facebook but not here, silly me.

So I thought I would share a few pictures of the items that you can still pickup from the showcase:

New Design Modern Cloth Nappy Wallet

 

blue green white mcn wallet blog pic 1

So I have finally done it.  I have redesigned my modern cloth nappy wallet.  I have always wanted to make the wallets so that the wipes container was placed inside the bag but was not confident enough with myself that I could do it.  I have had quite a few custom orders for this style of nappy wallet so I thought it was about time that I changed it to the way I originally wanted it to look.

DSC09224

The wallet pictured contains 3 modern cloth nappies with their inserts.  One side of the bag has the opening for the wipes case, the other side has a small zipper pocket which I added after I finished this bag but with be sew into the side of the wallet next time. 

DSC09228

I have also changed the wrist strap too as per a recommend from one of my customers who purchased a clutch style nappy wallet and thought that it would be great to be able to attach the wallet to the stroller.  I have added to snaps to the strap for extra strength and I have also done this for the matching wetbag.

DSC09219

One more item that will come with the wallets is a matching hand sanitiser holder.  I have mine attached to the strap of my nappy bag so that I can find it easily.

DSC09227

So what do you think?  I am also changing the clutch style nappy wallet so stay turned for that one.

What I have been up too

Hello everyone, how have you all been.  So sorry for the absence on the blog, I’m still here and I have been very busy with a family life and a few custom orders.  The shops are starting to look a bit empty so I thought it was about time that I cut up some of the great fabric I have been collecting over the last couple of months.

think pink showcase

I am taking part in the Think Pink showcase over at Cuppycake Kids Boutique to help raise funds for breast cancer.  You will find 2 of my nappy wallets up for grabs which I am currently redesigning and you can have the first look at my modern cloth nappy wallet tomorrow.  There are some great items up for grabs and of course the them is PINK!!!

So what else have I been up too you ask? Well if you follow me on Facebook or on Instagram you would have seen a few of these custom orders in the works:

New Trolley Cover with bag

Yes that’s right I have redesigned my trolley covers and they now come with their very own bag that you can fold you cover down into for easy storage/carrying.

The bag is attached to the bag of the cover and acts as a pocket to keep all your goodies in why out and about in the shops.  But when it’s time to go home just simple roll the cover up and fold into the bag.

This is the first of many to come to both of my stores and will also be available for the twin trolley’s as well.

Returning to Bits & Bobs

I have been thinking about some old items I just have available in my store after redesigning my hand sanitiser holders for a custom order a few weeks ago.  So I have decided to return my trolley covers and trolley baby capsule liners.

(picture on the left is the old design)

The trolley covers will still be the same design but unfortunately due to materials increasing in price I have increased the price for my covers from $35 to $40 plus postage.  This one is the first to be available in the Etsy store.  Covers have elastic for easy placement on the trolley and still come with a coordinating toy ring.

I have tried a few different designs for the capsule liners, with the last one looking like this (the green one I used for Ethan).  But was still not happy with it.  So the other day while at the shops I took a pram liner with me to see how it would fit.

It was a bit to long and of course I don’t need all the anchor points, plus I wanted to add padding to make the liner as comfy as possible for little ones.  So here is what I have come up with.  What do you think?

This liner is available also in the Etsy store.  I will have more added next week as I am currently working on a few custom orders.

I will also be attending a market in August so stay tuned to find out where you will find me and come and say HI!!!

My weekly Made It picks

It’s been a while since I have had a little look at what my fellow Made It sellers have been up to so I thought it was about time I did and shared a few of my favourites again with you. 

I chose Pets this week as my theme as I have bought some fleece for my furry babies to make them a couple of coats for winter.  It’s very chilly here now, I think hubby even had frost on the front window this morning.

So here they are:

What’s New

Hello everyone, well it’s been a busy couple of weeks here at Bits & Bobs 4 Bubs.  I have had quite a few custom orders coming through for the clutch style nappy wallets.  And I have finally uploaded the new On The Go mobile phone wristlets in both stores.

I also have redesigned the hand sanitiser holders due to a customer request and I am really pleased with how it has turned out.  I made them back when Bits & Bobs 4 came to life.
