Nursing Covers – New and Improved

Nursing Covers – New and Improved

I have been super busy improving our nursing covers.  We have made changes based on your feedback.  We added a little pocket to store your breast pads or wipe your babies cute little face. Made from super soft terry cloth.

We have also decided to only use organic cotton for this round of patterns and first up is these beautiful sweet cloud pattern.  We doubled up this particular pattern because it was slightly too sheer but still very lightweight. We also added about made our covers longer by about 3 inches and wider by a couple of inches. More coverage and privacy for your baby.

I’ll keep you posted when it’s up in our Etsy shop and when it comes available on Amazon.

So excited.

Feels like spring over here

Feels like spring over here

I know it’s a perma frost over in the East but here in the Pacific Northwest, it feels like spring is about to pop up. I’m sure it will all grey over in the next few days but I’m going to take advantage.

We have been busy sewing over the winter with a toddler and a preschooler around our feet. We are almost ready to show you lovely wool felt luggage tags and we have a little sneak peak for you.  Really happy with the results and the re-design.

We hope to really push forward this year, making adjustment and changes to help bring Lil’Soak Designs into the spotlight and continue with this social business.  We have appreciated all the feedback and support we have gotten in order to really find our signature voice and to keep our goodies ethical and eco-friendly.  We want you to love our stuff and be sure it’s a “happy” product made fairly and ethically.

I’m actually excited about making handmade things again.  It’s getting the creative juices flowing. The parental thing is so thankless sometimes that it’s theraputic to make something from start to finish, hold it in your hands and go “Wow, I made this!”  It helps me wind down after all the day time busyness.

Speaking of — I have to get back to the sewing machine to finish up the oh so sweet tags.

Summer’s here and it’s been hard to keep my regular work schedule now that school’s out. The 4 hours that Pax is in preschool really helped me get a lot of my blogging but you’ll see that in the summer, I’ll be posting at odd times of the day but I will keep you up to date on all things green and fair trade here at Lil’Soak.  I managed to post up a couple of new products  The small tote is perfect for an outing.  I use it all the time to bring an extra change of clothes for the kids, diapers, snacks etc.  Or else I bring it with me when we hit the library or a quick errand to the grocery store.  It’s handy to have and very sturdy. Made from organic cotton, GOTS certified in India.

This large messenger bag carries a lot of stuff.  There is a zipper pocket in the back and inside there is a small zipper pocket. It’s a great catch all carrying bag.  You can tuck your tablets/ipad into the back zippered pocket no problem. Sizing and dimensions are all available on the products link.  They are available now for sale through on ebay and soon we will send it off to amazon as well. We’ll keep you posted.

Right now I’m trying to pack and ship some cute soft dolls for both girls and boys for Amazon as well.  Pax likes to call them Mama and Papa because they kinda do look like us oddly enough but they are really lovely handmade dolls that were made by deaf/near deaf women in China.  Social benefits are not abundant in China so people with disabilities have a hard time finding solid work and this organization is doing a wonderful job of empowering these women.

I have a feeling it’s going to be a busy busy summer.  Time for my coffee break and a slice of the banana bread my kiddo helped me make. By helped I mean mash the bananas to smithereens.
