Yea!! My new machine is due here via UPS on 12/3/08. This means that I should have atleast several pairs of g-tube pads ready to immediate shipment-just in time for Christmas! I'm working on them now and sometimes my sewing machine decides it will work so I can get 1 or 2 done before I need to fix it again. The stitches are fine but the machine decides to tie up the bobbin threads every so often so I can't finish until I take it apart and fix it. The new machine will be a blessing and maybe I'll get lucky & it will be here sooner than planned. (keeping fingers crossed and prayers going!)
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
I'm making a small turkey and most of the sides to pray I don't mess it up too-it's been a while since I cooked a turkey. If you've got any good turkey recipes let me know.

Sewing machine death!

Grrrrr....just when I get things ready to sew (and have orders waiting!) BOTH machines die. As irritating as that is I did buy a new one last night and it's on it's way so I should have it here by Tuesday. I'm just irritated that I can't get things done on the weekend for Cyber-Monday. I am planning to have a few larger sized items ready for the holidays (as long as no one disrupts the plans again). If anyone would like to see anything special in the shop let me know. My machine isn't here but I can get things cut out and ready (& the serger is here to do some of the seams on pants and such). Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Official KCKOne Larger Sizes License is HERE!!

It's official! I can sell the KCKOne Larger Sizes in my Etsy shop. While I continue to do the "happy dance" I'm prepping the pattern and getting ready to cut out a couple. I will be including 1 soaker with each pocket diaper and will also offer additional soakers in separate listings. The sizes for these are:
Large Child- 4-10 years
Tween- 6-14 years
Adult- 25-40" waist
Large Adult- 34-50" waist
I am currently using this diaper on Nikolas and it is my FAVORITE! The school can't mess these up so they got 2 thumbs up from all of us, even his teacher & aides liket them. I think one of my favorite things is that these will grow with him so I don't need to "make more" in 2 years. I'll just have to come up with another excuse to keep buying all the great fabrics for his diapers. :D
I am licensed for the larger sizes on my website, however not the infant/toddler size (I can sell those locally though). Currently they only allow 15 online sites for the smaller sizes and I got my license too late. No worries though-I'm really in this for those of us who have bigger kids and are tired of, don't want to use, or unable to use the disposables.
Personally I'm really getting into this whole going green thing. I mean it's really not nearly as hard or time consuming as I thought it would be and look at what wonderful things we are doing for our kids. Just my 2 cents. Have a great day!!

New listings-Diaper making kits

I have decided that in order to get more fabrics, for my kiddos new things and thin my ever-growing stash of fabric, I am going to offer "diaper cut kits". These will be large sized diaper cuts of PUL and an inner fabric. All you need is the type of fabric you prefer for the center soaking part, notions like thread & elastic, and a pattern. If you don't have a pattern I'll be more than happy to suggest a few I've tried and LOVE! I figure that this will allow my stash to thin and you to have tons of different prints and colors on your little one's bum. If you are sewing for a larger child, tween or adult-let me know. I can make a custom larger sized cut for you. I know those can be quite hard to find.I'm also going to offer cuts of soaker fabrics like hemp french terry and plush microfiber (way better than the auto towels we get at the discount stores!).

We're home-again

Boo ended up in the hospital again so all orders went on hold....again. Thankfully we're home reasonably healthy. I'm just about ready to say "only ready made" for awhile. Anyway I'm getting caught up and things are going out this weekend so I feel a bit better. If you're one of those who got stuck in this I am truly sorry and will get your items out ASAP!

On a much happier note I got to catch up on some blog reading and found the most wonderful post from Angie (Audrey Caroline's mommy). It's a 7x7 post. It's a list of 7 prayers we should pray over our children. They are 7 times each day and the challenge is to do it for 7 days (or more :D ). Please join me in prayer for our children. God has wonderful things in store for all of us and with prayer anything is possible. Also please thank God for the miracle he performed in baby Stellan who was born so very HEALTHLY!!!!! I'll get a link on mine later but there is a link on Angie's blog (I've already linked her on the sidebar). It's also a very touching story full of miracles. Have a wonderful weekend!
