Custom footed longies and embroidered soaker

Here’s two out of the five items I’m working on for a gal. One pair of footed recycled wool longies with a needle felted applique on each toe. Then an embroidered recycled wool soaker. These are both a great weight and will be superb for night time cloth diapering! Oh and NO the longies aren’t crooked, I was trying to take pictures with a 1 yo little girl on my hip so I didn’t arrange them as neatly as I could have or should have!

About half way done with a dragon applique!

Needle felted of course! I still need to add his tummy and the detail felting using wool yarn to match —- then of course there’s his flames, cannot forget the flames!!  Here’s a pic of him half way done and what he’ll resemble when he is done!  These are on a wonderfully soft recycled wool longies for a sweet little guy of a gal on one of my sewing boards.

How about some fall themed longies and an adorable fitted diaper??

Then you need to check out this collaboration at Bella Tesori between myself (Fuzzy Britches) and Sam of Tweedlebee and Tweedlebum! I created a pair of recycled wool longies with a fall foliage tree needle felted onto the longies – these longies have a great weight to them and would be fantastic for night time diapering! Sam created an adorable fall squirrel flannel Fattycake fitted with a full hidden layer of bamboo fleece and three layer soaker of cotton fleece, and the inner touching babies tender skin is oh so comfy bamboo velour. If you know anything about Fattycake diapers, you know they are an incredibly well fitting diaper! Between these two items, you’ll have a beautiful set to show off your little one!!

Anyone for another needle felted wool soaker??

Just got these done about 20 minutes ago and I LOVE THEM! Ok, so that’s probably a little more self-appreciative than I need to be, but I really wish Eden could wear these. They are very soft and so stretchy! Plus I love the butterfly on the bum! what was supposed to be a flower turned into a really cute butterfly!

Just zinging along!

I’m just zinging along lately! I got the last soaker done for my trade, and cut out and sewed up three longies….wait, four longies, tonight. One is a custom, the other’s I am hoping to get stocked at Buddha Bellies this Thursday at 6pm.  Anyway, this is Brother Bear for the LO that will be wearing them. Mama seems to be happy, I just hope he enjoys them too!  Needle felted applique on recycled wool soaker.

Needle felting is fun!

as always i have to put in a disclaimer–bak = baby at keyboard–so that means typing 1 handed, lower case letters and typos!!

i’ve recently gotten into needle felting more than just playing around with it.  needle felting gives me a lot more flexibility because i don’t have to be parked in front of a sewing machine.  my machine time is very limited with Eden wanting her mama to hold her alot.  you’d think that with her crawling and furniture walking, she’d want to be on the move more, but nope she looooves her mama!  Anywho, as I was saying, needle felting gives me more freedom to create and I’ve really enjoyed it so far.  My son Asher has been helping me in tracing current appliques and then cutting them out for me, and creating new appliques for me as well.  I figured it might not be a bad idea to tap into his creativity and use it to my benefit, lol!  He enjoys knowing that I’m using his designs or something he helped with, as do the other children when they help.  Here’s a few needle felted woolies I’ve created recently.  My fav so far is the dino (Ash drew him)
