I've been hard at work....

...getting ready for my Hyena Cart stocking. I'm thinking about moving the date up to the 7th. Yep, I'm getting that close to being ready!

Here's a sneak peek at some of what will be available....

Thank you!

My sewing machine stopped sewing. Thankfully my mom knew a wonderful seamstress named Susan and she was able to fix it for me! Thank you so much Susan!

I will be sewing my little heart out today and hopefully get to take pics and previews up on hyena cart before Monday.

Thank you to all the tester moms from I truly appreciate your help and look forward to getting your surveys back in the mail.

Hyena Cart

I'm working on getting the store set up so don't be surprised if it looks different everytime you refresh the page. LOL I keep changing things around and still have to figure out how to put items into stock.

June 17th?

Does that sound good? I'm thinking my parents 30th Wedding Anniversary would be a perfect day to go live with my Hyena Cart.

I dyed up a bunch of prefolds last night and matched up what fabrics I want to go with them this morning. I will be pinning and sewing them up later tonight. My goal is to have a dozen to stock on the 17th and have enough left so I can offer up a custom slot or two.

If you have any suggestions or requests for fabrics please add it in the comments section of this post and I will certainly listen. :-)

Minor set back.

Green Mountain Diapers does not endorse the dying of their prefold diapers.

I emailed them to see if I could include a link to their site for sizing purposes and was asked not to because they do not endorse dying of prefolds.

I will be researching more the effects of dyed diapers but after my first stocking on Hyena Cart...all GMD prefolds will be sold undyed. I dyed quite a few last night so what I stock (most likely on June 17th) will be IT for dyed GMD's.

I am looking into other vendors to satisfy the dyed prefold niche as I love dyed prefolds and plan to continue offering them. I will continue to dye my boys diapers until I find evidence that shows me that it is in-fact harmful.

Prefolds are in!!

The Green Mountain Diapers prefolds have arrived!! They are prepping in the wash as I type. I hope to dye up a few of the reds, embellish them, and get them stocking on Etsy by Friday. Wish me luck!

Thank you to my loving hubby, parents, and sister for supporting me in this adventure. I couldn't do this without your support! XOXO

May 17th, 2008

Pics of what got accomplished this evening before my bobbin went haywire and I put everything away.

Seam 1/2 done. Just pressed and waiting to be sewn and then put on a preemie prefold for a custom order.

Bamboo velour liner that my sewing machine tried to eat tonight.
I saved it thankfully. *whew*

Preemie prefold embellished with skull batik.
Part of a custom order.

GMD brown edge embellished with the same skull batik seen above. I don't care for how the doubler came out so I am going to toss it in the FFS pile and re-do it again tomorrow.
