As of Late

Custom orders seems to be where it’s at these days for me and my little Etsy Shop, here are some pieces I’ve done recently…

This fabric combo has been popular. Mix of soft vintage & organic flannels, backed with organic fleece by Michael Miller Fabrics. The softest I've ever touched!

So I’m a quirky; trend-following, cloth diapering, hip-hippy, yuppy. Alright then. It’s a trend I’m proud to be a part of. What I don’t jive with, however, is the passive aggressive frost. It’s no breaking news bulletin that although women should stand united to support each-other in all of our vast/different ways of life, a majority of us, we don’t. We judge, we get our meow on. Even if we don’t say it, we think it. We label. Over GOOD things. Why? Hmph. Well, that’s a whole other post. Something to do with raging ego’s and a lot of other complicated things. I never thought that when I made the decision to cloth diaper that I would be ostracized for doing so and labeled all sorts of tom foolery. I read about it, I experience it in groups with other mommies…it’s everywhere!

On My Way To Etsy!

It’s ever slow, this brand building/blogging/mompreneur thing, when one has a wee one. Which is quite alright, because there’s nothing better than playing with and caring for my little guy. And the big one. There are some crafty goods I’d like to share though, next week there will be more as I have a couple dreamcatcher baby mobile orders! Wheee!

I think how I am going to work it is to blog about what I make, then add them to my Etsy…and when I have a bunch of varied product I’ll set up the le petit rêve boutique all official. I’m working on some dandy tweaks and animation idears for an ooooo and ahhhh factor in the boutique; which will require the aid of BSM to code and make happen, so it shall be last. Just thinking aloud there.

Without further delay, here are some precious butterfly pillows/toys I made for one of my besties baby shower a while back. As I use mostly recycled sweaters (only 100% merino wool and/or 100% cotton, organic when I find it); to make toys and pillows, no one requested order will be exactly like the last. One could either choose what’s already in the boutique/etsy, or custom order with their choice of colours/motif. Pretty much any sort of animal/object/fruit/you-name-it can be made.



These beauties look great on bed, in crib or in mouth, (the babes, not yours). Since they are made with all natural materials…no worries! Hooties (owls), Feathers, Chickadees, Lambs, Hedgehogs, Veggies & Fruits to come!




Blankies
3 extra large. Ultra lightweight for summer.
1 organic cotton stretchy swaddle with ruffle stitch, 1 organic fleece, 1 reversible bamboo. 3 ft x 2ft.
Available in heavier weights, smaller/whatever size one could wish for.
Cheeky bum salve bonus gift.
Any colour one could wish for with or without contrasting stitch.
As in, the non-contrasting stitch would be the same colour as the material.
Just in case you couldn’t figure that one out.
