IndigoElephant In Action!

Kim sent in this pic of her little boy in one of his many bibs, "We would be changing his tops 10 times a day without them!"

I've recently been sent some photos of kids wearing their IndigoElephant bibs, and it delights me to see them in action, doing what they've been designed to do!  It also got me thinking that I'd love to see more, not just the bibs, but dummy clips, hair accessories, softies, washers, blankets... everything!! So you can either email them through to theindigoelephant [at] gmail [dot] com or upload them direct to the Facebook page, they will be added to the Facebook album, aptly titled IndigoElephant In Action and each photo will gain you an entry to win a $15 credit to be used in store.  And to keep giving you chances to win, let's do it monthly till the end of December!  So for October the two current photos have a great chance of winning, if you'd like your name in the hat as well, just send through a pic!

Yes, here is another new realease for this Sunday's Hide & Seek Market... Lovely brooches for the more grown up girls! A little something for those who are always shopping for others but would like to treat themselves to something a bit pretty, and perfect for adding that finishing touch to an outfit! Or a gorgeous gift for your BFF (Christmas is coming)!! Come along to Hide & Seek this Sunday from 10am - 2pm at Wrights Rd Community Centre, Kellyville and see them all!  Just a reminder that IndigoElephant will not be in our old spot at the market, you can find us this month in Activity Room 2 (beside the main room). Come and say hi!!

I'm so happy about the range of Christmas Bibs being released this week in the Madeit shop!  There's a great selection to choose from, with lots of Dribble and Feeding Bibs designed to keep your bub stylishly festive as well as clean during the upcoming Christmas feasts,  {Did you know Christmas is just over two months away??} And as we are in the Southern Hemisphere, there is not a snowman or pair of mittens in sight!!

Above are the Reindeer and Christmas Trees by Robert Kaufman, I especially love the random red noses on the reindeer!! And, as always, there is something for the boys as well as the girls!  Below are the All Wrapped Up and Christmas Stockings, also available in both sizes...  These are available online and at Hide & Seek market if you're in or around Sydney -  next Sunday Oct 24th, find future dates on the website.

Drum Roll Please...

I'm so excited about sharing the newest addition to the IndigoElephant range!  It's something I've been thinking about doing for quite awhile but never seemed to get around to. But this week, the bullet was bit and here they are... 

Crayon Wallets for your little artiste on the go. They fold up nice and compact to fit in your bag (or theirs), and unfold to reveal 8 Crayola crayons, an A6 blank pad, and a pocket to hold previous masterpieces.

As always my boys have been product testing through the week and helping with refinements to the design. They love theirs, and I'm hoping they will prove popular!  With Christmas not far off these make a great present and are handy for keeping the kidlets entertained at cafes, restaurants, waiting rooms or even in the shopping trolley!!

They will be available at the Hills Zone Playgroup Fun Day this Sunday, at Castle Glen Community Centre, Ridgecrop Drive, Castle Hill from 10am till 2pm.  Tickets are $10 per child pre-purchased or $20.00 on the day.  Kids will need to have an armband to go on the rides, which are available from Kristie Ireland via hillsdistrictplaygroups@hotmail.com  (please include name, amount of armbands required and your phone number).  And there will be a range of stalls for some retail therapy for the parents! It would be great to see you there!!

The Crayon Wallets will be listed online sometime next week!

Hello Blog.

It feels like ages since I've posted here (and caught up on reading my favourite blogs too)... I've been suffering a bit of post market burn out after sewing like a mad woman for two markets in September.  Not that it has deterred me from booking two in October and December!

So for the last week, I've been enjoying some time with my boys, developing some new things, getting to know my new sewing machine better, and trying to get my head around the fact that Christmas is less than 3 months away.

I also received some fabric I'd ordered to make my boys some summer pyjamas, and it was great to say "Yes" when they asked if it was for them! I've managed to wash and iron them, and hope to get them made before summer weather kicks in... 

I'm not usually a fan of licensed character items but the Dr Seuss fabrics are lovely, and the boys love pointing out who they can find on there!  The other one is an organic cotton from Monaluna's Circa 50s range, the patterns are great for boys, so it was hard to limit myself to just the one. I might have to go back for more later!
