I absolutely ADORE velour inners so I love getting orders for minky outers!! I get to play with my velour (so doesn't work with anything cotton on the outer :()
The black tree is so striking on this bright aqua minky, I just had to use lush black velour to really set it off

There have been A LOT of new newseletter subscribers so while I have you all here I'll recap some info from the last newsletter...
My Stockings are a little different to other online stockings you may have been to. I am trying to do something new that will keep everyone happy (including me tee hee). The stocking is a pre-order stocking with a difference - I have named them create-a-nappy, as you can choose from what I have available to "create" your dream nappy in the right size and closure.
You will see product listings as previews with a photo of the nappy made up in the partciular fabric - don't stalk these products - you need to buy one of the pre-order slots - here are the links to the right products for you to buy
There are 20 slots available - I have tried to spread them out evenly between the different styles. When the pre-order slots become available, from the drop down menu choose which nappy you want (check for pictures in the preview products) then choose your size, closure, embroidery (for plain minky) and minky colour (for half cotton). The previews of the nappy designs will never ebcome available - they are just that - "previews"

Small Tillbrook Sprites in Lavender - always a fave of mine
A funky green tree on lush pale green minky. This design was discovered by the customer before the stocking - she sent me a link and asked me to add it to the Photo Album - then she was able to use the design number in her order saving any confusion
Oooooh yummy Wildberry minky. I usually love this minky with the butterfly and cherry blossom but i think this scrolly hearts is extremetly effective too - delicious!!!
When is a plain minky nappy not plain???? When it's a funky print - just like this spacey print minky - perfect for boys - but then again - who says girls can't like astronauts and spaceships!!!
Evie is just over 12kg and she fits this Small Flatter Me side snap with a snap to go on either side.
I know I have promised pics of a 12kg bub in a small for a while so here they are :)

I know it's not a nappy yet but I'm doing that part today - I was so excited i just had to post a "half done" photo
I wasn't sure bout the choice of minky colour before I started - but really I should learn, the customer is always right LOL it looks great on that colour!!
I have 3 different light pink shades here and it never really matched any of those. I originally temed it with cherry - which looked stunning - but as the colours in this print are kind of muted I wanted something not as dark so the print would really work to it's potential
Soooooo was fabric browsing a while ago (as you do LOL) and came across this "coral" pink. It's not really a colour I would normally go for - but I thought I would give it a go. Of course I was a bit apprehensive at first because you know the colour on the screen isn't always the "real life" colour"
Well I needn't have worried - the match is absolutely perfectly spot on. Yaaaaaaaay - thanks Minky Delight - and thanks Maz for shipping it in with your minky order and saving me postage ;)
I absolutely adore dimple dot minky. I know it's not for everyone (you either love it or hate it and those that hate it REALLY hate it LOL) - I'm one of the ones that REALLY REALLY love it.
Evie has quite a few dimple dot minky nappies - and after the way she carried this one around the house ooohing and aaaaahhhing i'm guessing I need to make her a pink one with a brielle fairy on it ;)

The top 2 are just so utterly gorgeous and sooooo utterly BOY!!!! I have been wanting to make a blue camo nappy for a while but always get busy - I was actually excited when Erin asked for this one. Oh and denim - anyone who knows me knows I LOVE denim minky - it looks so lush IRL - and for some reason every embroidery looks cool on denim 8)
The bottom 2 have stories....
On the left - that ones a surprise design for a special tester nappy - trying something a little bit different ;) if it works I'll tell you what it was, if it doesn't..... geez it's a pretty nappy isn't it LOL (I posted this pic on facebook with a challenge for anyone to guess the kanji on the back...)
The one on the bottom right is called "Wise Old Owl" I saw this fabric in a photo early last year - As soon as I saw it I just HAD TO have it - of course trust me to fall in love with a fabric that is a limited print done by a designer especially for one US fabric store chain.... gah ... and of course by the time i saw it, it was about 2 years out of print :( sad Tracey :(
I kind of laid off the search after about 2 months but I have never forgotten it and EVERY single time I find a new fabric store I do a hunt for the fabric
In December last year I was looking at Etsy (of all places) for a different Owl fabric (yeah I know isn't that always the way) and OMG!!!! what did I find instead.....
It was just one cut of the fabric and of course the lady selling it put a massive markup on it knowing it's OOP HTF - and I had to pay flat rate international shipping for that one piece of fabric - but my gosh it was worth it!!!!
My Dh gets over the colour pink very fast so we compromised - pink snaps and embroidery thread, blue inner :D
Whenever I do a fabric co-op Evie loves to lay in the piles of velour - so of course I make her inners velour tee hee
