Memorial Weekend sale! Heyreaders! I am going to do a memorial weekend sale. From 05.26.2016 till 05.30.2016, get 10% off all items with coupon code RUMPBOX1 at rumpbox.etsy.com Minimum purchase is $8 to use this coupon code.
I have drawn up a new pad shape and is trying this out so my pad swap partner. I am also making several of this for my friend’s moon box that I have been putting together. I like it, easier to sew and faster.
Now the breast pad is a different story… My sewing machine was giving me bad attitude when I was using the overlock stitch to fake serge the edge. I don’t know about giving this to my friend as a gift:/ not cool.
Due to the lack of babysitter today 2-14-2016, we are not doing anything special. The only thing I managed to do was to make a nice meal for lunch. Between my very demanding teething son and all the things we do on weekend, it is impossible to plan anything. At least I did make an effort to do so. Here I give you garlic Rosemary rack of lamb with garlic Rosemary roasted potatoes and roasted asparagus and mushroom in balsamic glaze.
Wonder what I have been up to? Well more sewing. More pad making cause I’m addicted and I mean making my own pattern testing it out or just for fun. And, buying more and more fabric! I need to stop!! I recently figured out the correct foot and the stitch in my sewing machine to do overlock stitch. I feel golden….there are some projects that you just need to have the Serged look, say cloth wipes or heart shape breast pad like bamboobies. So I made my own version of bamboobies, with flannel top for decoration and cotton velour for the soft touch to skin. Not that I need breast pad anymore since I dried up after being sick with a cold for a month. But maybe u can get better at this and list it on etsy 🙂
Here are pics of my adventurous pads and they are quite difficult to turn. My fingers cramped up and I did tear the fabric a little bit. Be my judge and tell me what you think??

Real quick, I got baby clippers and gave baby Ian a haircut. First haircut done by me with clipper…. And I think it looks pretty good. I call it the diychick hairdo.
So I have come up with a new name for all my pads…. It should all be labeled under the name Rumpbox – box full of reusable menstral pads. And I have created a new blog for this.
Check out the new blog! Give me some love there too and all new rump related projects will be posted there instead. You want to add that to your favorite too!
Thank you everyone for your support. New year, new name, frest start! 2016! Namaste
This mommy has been busy when baby is sleeping! These took me 3 days (about 1-2 hours per night) to make. I’m slow and I’m also using the same fabrics for something else so besides drawing a bib pattern on the fabric I’m also drawing another pattern at the same time. Anyhow, these are done. I may take couple well made ones to a baby shower this coming Saturday as a gift. The rest is for my baby. I should have made more to put on my etsy store but the sales of bib hasn’t been great. If anyone really want it, they can send in a custom request for now as fabric choices are listed on my Facebook page (TheDIYchick).
Can’t wait to get started already!
