Gettin' busy with Singapre Part 1

A few weeks ago I was contacted by a woman in Singapore that told me she absolutely loved my line of baby/mommy gear, TheEmmaline. She asked if I would consider working with her on a wholesale basis to help stock up a new online boutique that she was helping to start up. Aparently in Singapore, awesome baby and mommy gear is a little hard to come by. Originally she only wanted a few burp cloths, drool bibs, changing pads and reversable nursing covers. Well, it mushroomed from there.

She increased her order a few times and finally we ended up at a grand total of 250 items! That's 50 nursing covers, 50 changing pads, 70 double-sided burp cloths and 80 drool bibs!!! Holy cow...I got a lot of work to do!

So, after I received the payment, I purchased all of the fabric and started cutting. After two rotary cutter blade changes, this is what 250 fabulous baby/mommy items looks like...

So, yes...it's all cut. Now comes the fun part...pinning. I don't think I have enough pins!
Stay tuned to see my progress! Oh yea, one more thing...I have to have this out to her US shipping facility by April 12th!!! I better get crackin!

Introducing the Diva Sleeve

Oh. My. Gosh. I am SOOOOO excited about my newest product! It's not even available in my shop yet but I made one at the request of a client and think it's so amazing that I have to sell them!

Carol, my client, is going to celebrate her birthday this weekend in New Orleans with some friends. First of all...how awesome is that?!?! She wanted to take her phone, a little cash, her ID and the one other absolute girly girl essential...LIPGLOSS!!!!!

The Diva Sleeve, which by the way was named by Carol (thanks Carol!!!), is just like my deluxe Palm Pre sleeve. It keeps your Pre nice and protected with cushy minky in the inside of a hot cotton print and it also has a pocket on the front to hold cash and an ID/debit card. It also has the velcro-closure top flap to keep your Pre safely inside.

The first new addition to an already awesome sleeve is the the extra width to hold a lipgloss neatly inside! The next thing I've done is move the top closure flap off to one side so that you can slide the lipgloss in and out without having to open the flap.

The final awesome addition...it's hands-free!!! I've attached a wide and reinforced belt loop (more of a tunnel, really) to the back so you can slide it on to your fave belt and go out to rock the floor without worrying about carrying a bag! I promise...they only thing you'll have to hold is your drink!

To get the hottest new item for spring, check out my shop , pick a fabric and convo me and I'll whip it up for you!
