Parties & Moby Wraps

I'm back in my home state of Michigan for a visit and decided to have a PARTY! I talked my sister into hosting and it turned out great! A ton of my friends and family came - it was SO great to see everyone! And fun to show them what I've been up to! It started off looking like this:
Yummy food!
And ended up like this! I sold all but a few bibs, and a bunch of clothes too. So much fun!
Back home in Denver I'm now offering appliqued Moby Wraps through The Giggling Green Bean - they are an awesome cloth diaper and natural parenting store on Tennyson St. if you're in the area! They sell Moby Wraps or bring your own! It's just $12.50 for the first applique, $6.50 per additional. Here are a couple of them I have done so far - they have been turning out so cute!
If you're not in the Denver area but would like more info on how to get your Moby "jesified" contact me and I'm happy to work out the details!

The weather has been pretty nice in Colorado this spring - before I left for Michigan I took my girls to the local park with a stack of sewing that needed to get done. I love this view! This is my youngest daughter hanging out while I hide threads and sew on eyes.
Have a great day!

New items at Hip Violet!

A few new things I've been working on!

First, my birthday sets seem to be a huge hit! They sure don't stay in stock very long on my Etsy site, that's for sure! I also do customs, or in this case, a "Super Custom"! I don't usually keep zebra print in stock but a good friend was having a zebra & hot pink themed birthday for her little lady so I found this fabric and made this set for her.
Earlier this week I finally had a chance to make some bibs for my store. I posted them on my Etsy site and on my Facebook fan page, and all but ONE of the new bibs sold within hours! That was pretty exciting! Here is the pile of items ready to be packaged up.
And my packages ready for the post office. I am also now offering a new applique service - appliqued Moby wraps! These are AMAZING baby wraps - in case you're not familiar, they keep your baby close to you (which makes THEM happy) while letting your hands be free (which makes MOMS happy!). This one was a total lifesaver to me when my daughter Willa was born. This is my friend Jessica with her adorable daughter Ella showing it off. This service is offered exclusively at The Giggling Green Bean in Denver, or contact me for details! I also went FABRIC SHOPPING! Ah, my favorite thing. I am always in need of cute boy fabrics so I found these:

And I've had my eye on this one for ages for girls. I am a sucker for any bright color + black. I can't wait to try out some bibs in everything!
