Happy Birthday Babyville!

We can hardly believe that this year our Baby is Five Years Old! In a blink of an eye, we have gone from infancy to toddlerhood, and soon Babyville babies will be off to kindergarten! 

We launched our product line at a time when young families were returning to cloth diapers for a number of reasons: the health of their little ones, a staggering economy and for the good of the planet. We were dedicated to bringing the best designs and quality in cloth diaper making products to market. We were also committed to education and designed our website and Facebook to inspire, instruct and answer questions as new and returning sewists made their first diaper. Our instructional books and tutorials with step-by-step photography were developed to ensure success from the start.

Over the years, our Babyville Boutique line has expanded to include the necessary diaper making products for a complete shopping experience. Our Stay-Dri™ Wicking Fabric provides the perfect lining to wick away moisture from baby, and Babyville Boutique Snake Soakers and Rectangle Soakers absorb moisture to keep baby dry between changes. We’ve also included coordinated labels and appliqués as well as printed ribbons for creative embellishments. EZ Adjust™ Tabs and ruffled elastics are perfect for adding function and playful decorative finishes.

Our relationships with mommies and baby bloggers have helped to spread the word about cloth diapering. We were happy to participate in contests and giveaways to give more consumers the opportunity to try their hand at sewing their own cloth diapers.

In the months ahead, we look forward to introducing our newly revised Cloth Diapers Made Easy book. We’ve included new diaper sewing techniques and patterns, including an exclusive One-Size Diaper pattern from recognized diaper pattern expert, Krista Tracy. In addition, the book includes instructions for Fitted Diapers, “No-Leak” Contrast Wings, Detachable Ruffles and adding Appliqués. We are sure this updated edition will provide the best information and inspiring ideas for new and continuing cloth diaper sewists.

As we continue to celebrate our upcoming 5th Anniversary this year, watch for an ongoing series of articles and tutorials with our “Lists of 5’s!”  Whether it’s 5 Ways Cloth Diapering is Good for the Planet, 5 Reasons to DIY Diaper with Babyville, 5 Ways to Use Snaps or the many other helpful and fun ideas to expand your diaper making experience, we hope you will check in with us regularly. Perhaps we also have some other surprises in mind as well!

As always, thank you for your support throughout these past five years and we invite you to join us as Babyville looks forward to the next five years and beyond.

Baby Velcro Shoe Hack

I really wanted to use them because they are the cutest little high top baby shoes ( I mean, what baby shoes aren’t the cutest??).  If only I could pull them just a little tighter. Enter my Dritz snap tool and snaps...

Babyville Boutique - Adorable Woodland Diaper Covers!

A new item we got to try from Babyville Boutique, are the Boutique Snake Soakers and let me just say, WE LOVE THEM!!!!! Unlike most other types of cloth diaper soakers/inserts, they are topped with a plush microfleece which is not only safe against babies skin, it helps keep it dry!

Babyville Boutique Product Review and Giveaway! by Mommy on the Loose

What’s special about their products?  For starters, they offer PUL (polyurethane laminate) fabric which is waterproof—fantastic for baby stuff!  They also have this amazing Pull Over Elastic, which of course can be used to add stretch to an item, or it can just be used as a decorative finish (which provides a handy solution to all your edge-hiding woes!)  I think my favorite thing, though, is that they have ways to coordinate everything.  They have appliques, labels, and ribbons to match the different fabric patterns so you can add a special touch to any project....

Babyville Boutique’s Newest Line-Up- First Look!

When Babyville Boutique confided in me they are introducing a new line of fabrics, ribbons, fold over elastic, labels, and patches, as well as premade soakers (two to a pack, perfect for completing your DIY diapers and a lifesaver considering many fabric stores don’t carry the materials needed to make the most efficient and absorbent soakers) I was thrilled to dust off my sewing machine.
