Stunt Bums needed!

Ok I am after some stunt bums for Pull ups and Swimming Nappies. So if you are interested and your child is between 7.5 - 14.5kgs please email me.

I will be putting all the names in a hat and picking out 3 of each for the moment and if I need more or can make more in between orders I will take the next one in line.

I will post the order of picking on here for everyone to see.

My New Favourite, it is just so bright and has a gorgeous print.

Ok, this is my attempt at cloth pull ups. So I am after some honest feedback on what you think of them.
They are made the same way as my normal nappies with a outer layer of PUL, nappy flannel for a stabaliser and the microfleece inner. For this one I still did the 4 layers of bamboo as a sewn in soaker. The elastic is a 2.5inch heavy duty one and sewn in. My Daughter is about 11kgs and fits her 'just' but that is usually the starting weight range for toilet training anyhow.
I have put up a stunt bum request for these on my facebook group and want to trial the sewn in soaker and a snap in one (although I am not sure about this as it could come up and spill the contents while trying to get off - ewwww!)

These are my favourite Girlie nappies, I just love them and it will be sad to see them go.

After finding out from some mums that their little bubbas tummies are out growing my nappies but they fit really well everywhere else. I came up with these snap extenders.

Funnily enough they not only give more life to the nappies but actually improve bubs movement ability.

Excellent feedback so far

This is my first attempt with Minkyand even though it's a tricky fabric to work with and frays a bit, the finished nappy is just devine and sooooo soft.

Cute little nappies for the cutest little girl.

Thomas and Nemo are the most popular so
far but sadly this Nemo fabric is all gone and I can't find anymore.

My first project that wasn't a Nappy lol

The Ancor one I made for my mum.
The pink one is for my Daughter
The Dinosaur one is for my son and I tried a different pocket which is a little more tricky but looks good.


My sister just loves Mickey Mouse and I hunted high and low for some of this PUL and finally found some in NZ.

She nearly died when I gave it to her at her baby shower.

I am hoping to get a pic of little Myles in it soon.

Newborn nappies are so cute and so tiny.

I just love all of these materials but

think I really should take photos

during the day as they come out so

much better lol!

Another one of my favourites in the Malden Mills

Baby pink fleece and the Butterfly applique.

The pic doesn't bring out the soft pink of the fleece but it went so well with the bright purple inner of Microfleece that I couldn't resist.

Branching out and experimenting with these nappies was a bit daunting........

I hadn't touched a sewing machine in 15 years and all of a sudden ploughing head long into making nappies not only for my children but others as well was pretty scary.

I found these appliques in Spotlight and thought to give it ago. They turned out lovely and the stress of hoping I didn't stuff it was all worth it that they actually came out centred!!!!

In my search of finding a cloth nappy that I was happy with, I came across the most fantastic material of all time IMO lol. Malden Mills fleece is so soft and has gorgeous colours as well as it's fantastic absorbancy qualities.

I absolutely just love this nappy material and this would have to be one of the cutest nappies I have made.

It would have to also be the first nappy I was completely happy with and the realisation that my templates are finished and no more fiddling is necessary.
