My BlogShop - Chago Mago!

I finally got myself to sit down and do some basic this and that to set up a Blogsite for my "e-store". It's 4 am and I should really be going to bed.

But before I do, I just wanted to share this... Click on the Logo to be redirected :)

The Chago Mago Logo! Yup, that's a banana on his head...
It was actually a felt banana that I made for him before.

This is one of the diaper that's in Chago Mago's blogsite at the moment.

Now... Time for me to go to bed. That little Chago Mago will be up in 3 hours time...

Hasta Luego!

Monster Diapers and Diaper Gift Basket with Matching Booties

I have sewn a few diapers up to date and sold some but haven't really had the time to post them here. But here's a few that I have sewn for My little boy.

The Stripey one above was made using a hipster model but I didn't like the way it wrapped around Santiago. And it was Bulky too. 

Mr. Wasabi! I've got a lot of Thumbs up votes for this Green fella! Miguel's Favorite too. It's comfortable and it's funky! We Snap on inserts or just fold in prefolds when we're home. Either way, we can use it for a long time after many insert/prefold changes because it doesn't stink up like when using PUL. Oh, the Inner is made out of Fleece. 

Ain't he Adorable!

Always on the look-out!

The Elastics are adjustable around the thigh area therefore it fits no matter what :)

This was made for my sister's friend who's expecting a girl in August. Since they will be throwing her a baby shower this April, my sister gave me the honour of sewing her a diaper gift basket. I made 5 diapers, 3 with matching booties. These booties are snap on so you don't really need to crack your head on how to get those little feet in.

Also for My sister's friend with matching Booties 

Love this Japanese Cotton Fabric :)

An Apple a day keeps the doctor away :)

Miss Foxy! Gotta Love her :) Another one of my Monster Series which I will be posting the complete version soon.

Tada! The Gift Basket for the lovely mum-to-be :)

Now I've got to get back to sewing :)

Stamping Rompers

This was the first thing I did when I got My Pazzles Inspiration Electronic Cutter. It was love at first sight! Unfortunately I don't have much time for any crafting of this sort so I'm letting it go for RM500.00 less than what I originally got it for. You can view the post HERE if you're interested in getting it off my counter top.

I used Adobe Photoshop to create a black and white vector on Chago's face and use the image on my Pazzle Inspiration Software to make the cut on the machine. The blue material here is a 1mm foam sheet. I cut lizards, rocket ships etc and stamped up some plain cloth. Fun! Except I think if I ever want to do this again in the future, I'll get myself an Acrylic Block to make my stamping easier :)

New Sewing Machine, New Work Space, New Things to do

Since we got back, I have been tidying up my new work space while my boys play around the area. See how my little boy has grown! He's now attached to his smelly blanky which he refuses to part with while sleeping, Plays the piano with papa and walk all about the place.

I got myself a new sewing machine after the old one broke down... and got to sewing new cloth diapers for my boy. Converted some of my denim and shorts to a new diaper. I actually got a few people ordering a few from me from the US. So I sewed some and now working on some new stuff. Turning them into an adjustable diaper to fit all baby chunky thighs.

These however were the first few that I have actually sewn. Will be showing more of what i'm working on when I have them done. I have also sewn more felt food but i'll blog about them later.

Miguel's working on our son's play-fence. Now all I got to do is get more time on my hands to sew an apple tree and other stuff on it.

Dusting Up!

Whoa! Been such a long time since I last updated my blog!

We haven't done so because we headed back to Chile and then back to Malaysia and have been so terribly busy trying to settle down.

Anyways, I am now just trying to see if I can get anyone to buy my Pazzles Inspiration Cutter that I bought and received in March 2011. Reason why I am selling it is because I got so psyched about it and then when I got it, I realized that I didn't have the time for it at all with my now 8 month old son and my work at home income from other stuff I am sewing up.
