things are busy over here! finishing up adding snaps to these fabulous new dipes and then they'll be up for sale in my shop tomorrow starting at 10am EST. i'll get some up for preview tonight if i can. :)
i'll be restocking the store on the 30th! :) between holiday baking and gift-wrapping and general prep i've been serging away! i have 16 totally adorable new prints and i'll also be restocking some of the prints that have sold out. make sure to stop by on the 30th!! everything will be available starting at 10am EST :)
i am a total twitter newbie but for you experts - come follow me on twitter! :D i would provide a link of some kind but i genuinely have no idea where to link you to. i'm @twinkietush :) does that help? :P
meanwhile - thank you so much for all of your support!! the store has gotten off to an amazing start! 38% of our inventory sold out on day one! looks like it's time to get cutting more fabric :) i'm so happy to finally have my diapers out there!!
well i officially have 30 diapers ready to roll out! today i'll be photographing them and listing them in my store! previews will be visible as they are listed this afternoon and evening. they will be available for purchase beginning tomorrow morning at 10am EST! :)
i just wanted to check in quickly and let you know how close i'm getting to having my store stocked! :D i'm a week or two out but i've got about 30 dipes on the way! here's a shot of most of them in their current state - missing elastic and snaps et al - so you can get an idea of some of the prints i'm working with!
and how cute are THESE going to be?? eek i am so excited about them - i'm hoping to have some extra time and fabric to make a couple for M&D. again - not finished, of course. i just wanted to give you a glimpse of the awesome holiday print :)
ok back to work! thanks for checking in!
i am so thrilled to say that so far the feedback from our tester families has been extremely positive!! here are snipets from a few of the tester mamas:
"Very nicely made – super soft"
"Amazing! These were so high in quality!"
"It was is uber heavy rotation around here.It seemed very well put together. A flawless fluffy IMO"
"AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING! and everything was SO SOFT. i think that is the thing that stands out to me the most."
"I would definitely define these as top tier fitteds"
at this point, since the consensus is incredibly positive and there isn't any consistent feedback about desired changes, i feel confident about the pattern i have in place! :) so i am starting to cut fabric again - it's time to stock my store and open the doors!! :D i will continue to update as things progress, but i hope to have some dipes ready to sell in the next few weeks!
i'm so looking forward to sending these out tomorrow, and to receiving feedback from my testers over the next couple weeks! things are officially going to start getting exciting in twinkie tush world! :)
twinkie tush testing is about to commence! i'm working on the 10 test diapers that i will send out to our testing families :) we've got a wide range of baby ages and weights signed up - from a 10 lb 6 week old cutie to an active and adorable 30 lb 2 and 1/2 year old! the test diapers will be used for a couple weeks before i ask for feedback, and then i will make changes as needed based on that feedback. after that process, twinkie tush OS fitteds will officially hit the market!
before i roll out our "public" testers, here's a last look at some of the testers M&D have been wearing here at home!
hi there :) my name is gretchen. i'm a work at home mama to 16 month old twins. we've been cloth diapering since the babies were just over 3 months old and i have found i have a true passion for cloth. i've recently developed my own pattern and my own line of one size bamboo fitted diapers: twinkie tush! :) we're in the testing stages now but should have the line ready to launch officially in the next month or two!
in the meanwhile i'll be building this blog, which i'm really excited about :) i want this blog to be a resource for all CDers. i will include information about twinkie tush specifically of course, but i will also include some general info and some tips, tricks, ideas, and feedback based on our own experiences.
along the lefthand side of this post you'll see pages listed. i plan to have several quick links there for specific FAQs about CDing and about twinkie tush.
thanks for stopping by and please follow us so you can see updates as things progress with the line and as i add more CD info here!
