My Nappies are ready!

Finally I have perfected my nappy pattern and have them for sale at www.madeit.com.au/alilliebug. I have had a suggestion to advertise in the hospital maternity wards!!! mmmm thinking how to go about it!
They are looking fantastic and working perfectly! Below is a littlt bit about them!

Fitted Bamboo Nappies – by a Lillie Bug

This is a waterproof, stylish fitted cloth nappy that comes complete with-


• 6 thirsty layers of bamboo fleece

• A stay dry suede cloth or microfleece layer

• Easy colour coded press snaps

• 2 separate but secured soaker pads
• 5 adjustable sizes per nappy
• An outer breathable waterproof layer


After 4 children and lots of nappies! As you can imagine! I have tried so many different styles and really do think this is it!!! The best yet!


Byron is a 18kg nearly 3 year old with very chubby thighs and he fits the 3rd setting on the XL size with heaps of room! (hopefully he will stop wetting the bed soon!) The absorbency of 6 layers is good for him at night.


Amelia is 8 months old and weighs 9 ½ kg and she is on the 1st setting in the MED size, so that leaves plenty of room! She has not leaked through this size nappy yet!!!! Fingers crossed she won’t!


DYLAN IS 17 AND TYSON IS 15 AND THANK HEAVENS THEY DON’T NEED NAPPIES ANYMORE!!!!! (I used the old terry towelling square nappies, pins and pilchers for them!)


The sizes are NB S MED LG & XL and the colours really depend on how my mood feels at the time! But you can request something you like and As always I will do my best to make it for you.

I have donated one of them in medium to the Shoalhaven Australian Breastfeeding Association (ABA) to use it in their raffle to raise funds for a much needed new breast pump.

Wet Bag Pattern for Diapers or the Beach

Wet Bag Pattern for Diapers or the Beach

I am so chuffed!!!

I today got the most appreciative email from a customer that baught this outfit!
This is what she wrote -
YAY!!!!!! It has arrived. My husband picked it up as he came home from work. It is just gorgeous!! Thank you so much for making it for us. It is so lovely to deal with someone who really cares about what they do. The results speak for themselves. It really makes a difference when clothes are handmade with care rather than looking like everyone else. I am definitely going to keep a look out in your store because I know how excellent your clothes are. I know that we will get lots of comments your beautiful creation.

Thank you again, I will leave some feedback on Made it no worries!!

Oh that just made my day!www.madeit.com.au/alilliebug

Link to a nappy site I like!

A Little request!

My sister in law who is one of the most beautiful people I know has asked if I could make her a pram liner to protect her expensive pram from spills and nappy leaks!
So today I searched the net and found a tutorial on a blog page! It was so easy and I think I might pop them in my store as I really do think all good prams/strollers deserve a good liner!!! hehehe Oh yeah!!!and its reversable! The side in this picture has butterflies and the other has flowers! So if it gets dirty I can flip it over til i get time to wash it!!!
I have tried to include the link for how to make them!! Hope that part works! If not try this http://floatingworld.typepad.com/floating_world_views/2008/08/stroller-liner-tutorial.html Oh and Byron really enjoyed helping to measure the pram!
