Safety News for New Parents

Most new parents are very concerned with the safety of their new baby especially while they are sleeping. Some of concerns are about the use of the standard crib bumpers. Many are no longer using bumpers in their baby’s crib because of the chance of suffocation and the lack of air-flow and it’s relation to increased risk of SIDS? Are you wondering what to do about the painful problem of little arms and legs getting stuck in in-between the slats? This looks like a possible solution: Check out the BreathableBaby Site and the Breathable bumper:

Big Business crushes the little guy!

I am usually a very cheerful person especially when I am creating. I am one woman who loves to create, sometimes it is painting, other times it is sewing soft baby items, sewing womens accessories, or making something for the home.

Today, I feel crushed, sooooo, I am going to let off a little steam.

If you are looking for my sweet little baby gifts sets and soft baby blankets for a new baby you won’t find them on my site any longer.
Etsy removed them from my shop after receiving a notice from the Taggies Corporation that my products were an infringement of their products patent.
This was a shock to me, who is this Taggies Corporation? I never heard of them….so I find the link to their patent an item called a Taggie Blanket.
My products looked nothing like the tiny little 12 inch square of fleece with 20 “tags” sticking out along the edges.
Mine were made of soft cotton and minky and had satin blanket binding with a few ribbons attached under the satin on top of the printed fabric. Granted, they had a few ribbons on them, but not 20 all around the edges. That alone is the only way they were remotely similar. Fabric, shape, size, construction…trim, everything was different.
I have been sewing forever, and making all sorts of baby products since I was first expecting my son, including blankets, clothing and soft toys. I recently decided to try Etsy to help with the ever increasing expenses. I didn’t expect to make a fortune, just help with the bills. All the baby items I made for my children or as gifts always included something soft for the baby to touch, usually ribbons or satin. After reading about the company, I was surprised to learn that they discovered that babies love ribbons and tags on items better then the items themselves. Hmmmm, is there anyone out there that didn’t / doesn’t know that? My great grandmother who made handmade quilts knew that, her quilts always included something soft to touch! She made these quilts for all the children and grandchildren in the family, almost till her death at 93. How can they make such claims? This is just plain ridiculous, but.....

Be forewarned you could be next! If you make anything for a baby…better not put a looped ribbon(/any ribbon???)on it!

Ok, that’s enough so, what’s next? I need time to reflect ….maybe I will start a painting. Then I will be back to creating the things I love to make for sweet little babies.

I'm not the first! Check out these links:

These bags are great I want to order one:

Want to go green need some cool new ways to do it? I found a great new site:

Organic Fabric Finds from Mindfulmomma

Organic Fabric Finds has great information on organic fabrics. What beautiful Fabrics!

My goal is to make a 100% certified organic baby blanket
This shouldn’t be too hard. I’ll just Google “organic fabric” Then check out all the sites goggles displays. I should have an abundant amount of choices.
Well, what a disappointment to see what the search turns up. Is it necessary for organic fabrics to only come in beige? The most promising fabrics I found were designed by designer Harmony Art.
I would like to see some more choices offered in suitable baby/children's prints. Mostly I want to see color! Is it impossible to have beautiful, fun, colorful fabric that is free from all the bad stuff, (fungicides, insecticides, toxic chemicals, etc)? Do I really just need to get over my love for color? I was spoiled; when I lived ignorance, those were the days when the available choices in color were endless. I need to continue to think eco/green/organic, but without color can I be a happy camper?
