A special custom

In the midst of all the "Nappy a day" excitement for the nappy hunt - I have been finishing off customs that are long long overdue. This one is for a great customer of mine - with a special fabric that she hunted down - a very special nappy indeed!!

The placement of the print was "difficult" to say the least - no matter where I put the nappy pattern I couldn't get a part of the print on the front that I really liked - In the end I worked it so I could get this little RIP scene on the front - and the spooky haunted house on the back....

Not sure if you can see it on the screen - but there is fine silver glitter all over the fabric - oooohhhh aaaaahhhhh - pretties.....

Sorry about the wait M - we hope you love it :D

Sugar and Spice....

This pretty nappy is perfect for your new little princess - sized small it has an additional embroidery (mini size) design on the front - because small babys spend so much time laying down it makes sense to put something pretty on the front

Stocking Info - copy and pasted from the newsletter

Flattery Nappy News

It's been a while between Newsletters so I thought I would do a little catch up


Just a reminder that Flattery is now stocking at at 8.30pm (QLD time) on the First and Third Sunday of each month. The Firefly Collective store is a congo of a few Creative Mummas who share a vision and a friendship :) We are inspired each month by something new and I always have fun coming up with something a little bit special.

September has been fun with the first stocking being centred around products for your gorgeous boys - the second September stocking on the 19th is for your darling daughters. I'm having fun with my little stash of fairy floss minky, delicious.

October is shaping up to be a HUGE month for the Fireflies - keep your eyes peeled - Facebook is a great place to keep watch: Firefly Facebook. The first October Stocking is on the 3rd of the month - so keep an eye out especially on the first of October - there will be 2 big announcements made ;)



The September 2010 Nappy hunt is WELL under way - my icon has been hiding somewhere in my store since the 1st September and has been clicked on 727 times - it can't be that hard to find LOL

If you're not sure what the cloth nappy hunt is check out this site: Diaper Decisions make sure you check out the amazing prizes to be won.



If you've been to the website lately you'll notice that there are quite a few nappies listed as previewing - these are in-stock nappies that are going live each day (1 nappy per day) for the whole month of September in celebration of the Nappy Hunt.

These are not limited to people who are registered for the hunt - anyone is able to buy these nappies if you are fast enough ;)

To nab a nappy you can either stalk the Current Products page, or watch the Flattery Facebook page. Each day I log in to Facebook to announce what nappy will be going live that day, I will also announce the time though you will be able to get this info from checking out the count down on the previewing product on the website too.

I have been listing random giveaways (you don't even have to pay post!!) on Facebook throughout the month, to make it fair to non-FBers I will also be listing some on the website. Current products is the best place to check ;)




On Thursday 30th of September there will be 20 Pre-order custom slots going up throughout the day - some will have previewing times and some will be totally random - some will be early in the morning and some will be late in the evening - I'm hoping that doing it this way will enable some people to get nappies that they have been eyeing off but missed out on - or you can order the nappy you love in the size you need.

The custom slots will be for UP TO 2 nappies each - you do not have to buy 2 nappies, you are more than welcome to buy just 1, but no more than 2 nappies can be ordered by each person. Also to make this fair only 1 spot (max 2 nappies) per person please. I have had many people email me about nappies they have spotted in the random stockings and missed out on - so hopefully this custom stocking will put a few smiles on a few faces.

Your custom nappy can be made from any of the fabrics listed in the "Past Products" category and embroidery/applique is chosen from the Flattery embroidery library. These are the only fabrics/designs available.

Cotton prints can be full panel or half panel and must go with a matching applique design - not embroidery. I will allow minky prints to be teamed with plain minky and embroidery, plain minky prints are also available. 1 embroidery design per nappy please.

Digitised designs are not included, neither are embroidery designs that aren't listed in my embroidery album. You may notice some of the colours/prints you have seen previously are missing from the past products, I have sold out of some fabrics so I am unable to offer them at this stocking, sorry :( Let me know if there is something you really really wanted I will see if I can get it in for a future stocking.

As so many nappies will be listed and I will also have a lot to get ready for the October Firefly Collective stockings there will be quite a wait on your customs ordered. If you cannot wait up to 6-8 weeks for your nappies, please don't order. Of course some will be earlier than that - but I can't guarantee your nappy will be one of the first ones done. (Please don't ask for special treatment to get your order pushed to the front of the list)



I have been so busy sewing up stock for the Nappy hunt and the Firefly Collective I haven't used the Order tracking page for a while. After the September 30th Stocking the Order Tracking page will be used again

The order tracking page means that now you are able to see where I am up to with orders and where you are in the list. I update the order tracking page daily.

Orders that are not paid for immediately will be moved to the end of the list - once payment is received they will not jump back to their original position in the list but will start moving up the list from that time on - I have implemented this to avoid custom order delayed payments - and to keep it fair - you pay on time you get your nappy quicker.

Ok I think that covers everything - let me know if you have any questions

take Care

Wise old owl

I absolutely ADORE this nappy - it's my favourite ever owl fabric - that I hunted for a whole year to find - and nabbed on etsy when someone had an excess fabric stash sell out. The story behind the fabric is that it's a once off print done especially for a particular fabric store in the US - only 1 small run was done :(

I spotted it on a blog some time in early 2009 (or was it late 2009) and was looking for it ever since - I nearly fainted when I found it LOL - it cost me a small fortune but i got 3 yards of it yay

I tried a new owl applique this time too - which I'm absolutely in love with - I'll be doing this applique on all my owl prints from now on - he looks so cute :D and a little bit cheeky

I prefer cheeky owls to sleepy ones ;)

Oh and by the way it's going live at 7pm tonight QLD time -

Today's nappy is....... Huckleberry yummm

Hi all :)

Today i'm getting online early to announce today's nappy - an early stocking at 10.30am ;)

This one is a medium AI2 with velour inner - yummmmm. Huckleberry minky is out of print so not as easy to find as some other minkys - such a shame cause it was one of my favourite colours :(
