Something for the nappy lovers!

For the past few months I have been nagging Kobie to design a shirt for cloth nappies.  After a very long process sending designs back and forth and changing our minds, 4 weeks ago the designs were finally sent off to be printed, and today I can at last reveal them.

   They have come up fabulous, and I am extremely pleased with them.   The first stock will be available for sale at Ollie Rose soon, however the numbers are extremely limited.  But don’t worry, we will receive the remaining stocks which will be up and ready in time for the Great Cloth Nappy Hunt in March.


Normally I would say these shirts are made ethically and not in a sweatshop, but phew, making large batches of shirts with a hot heat press in my lounge room creates a sweatshop environment for me and there is nothing ethical about putting me to work like that 🙂

If you would like to nab one of the first few, send us an email at and let us know.  They will retail for $24.95 and available in blue sizes 6-12 mths, 12-18mths & 2, and pink 6-12mths & 2 (size 12-18mths is out of stock and will be available hopefully in about 4 weeks time.)

What else to do with a Ribbon Blankie….handy use #95

Besides playing with the tags and stroking the lovely soft minky, using as a bedtime comfort or security blanket, taking when out and about as small portable toy that easily folds into your handbag, looping to a stroller……………use #95 is playing peek-a-boo!



Ari’s favourtie game!

Spotlight on the birds

What: the sweetest little handcrafted bird toy around!


Why: he dangles and dingles, crinkles and rattles, you can pull him and taste him, shake and dance him.Hang him with a link from the car, pram or toy frame. Just cuddle and squeeze him….toy-bird

Who: babies who love handmade toys that are  unique and made with a variety of quality gorgeous fabrics will love him.


Where: find them here

When: right now or until sold out!

He was one of the first toys I made. Excuse the poor picture, it was all I could find, but here is the first one I ever made a few years ago. He was purchased by the lovely lady in the Denham Gift Shop who purchased some of my baby vests wholesale but couldnt resist keeping him for her grandchild. He has changed a little bit since then but the general idea is the same.

Staying Cool on Summer Days

Well I don’t know about where you live but it sure is warming up here in the middle of WA. I love summer and the things that it brings, fresh summer fruit, swimming,  an afternoon breeze…..but I know when you have a baby you want them to stay as cool and comfortable as they can. These little Play Suits make the perfect outfit for those long hot days. The soft ribbed baby vests have funky patches of matching fabric to the lovely cotton nappy covers which were kindly made by another WAHM for us.



There are some goreous fabrics to choose from, bright red hippos, cool cowboys, pretty retro bicyles……..


As well as the basic Summer Play Sets we have one more deluxe version for little girls left..see below. They have sweet little bows on the bloomer and is paired with a fantastic quality tank top with reinforced stitching on the hem and arms and are sweatshop free. Finished with pretty Ollie Rose shoulder detailing and a great flower applique it is a stylish little outfit for baby girls.
