Pellerina Design is now closed.

I closed Pellerina Design over on Etsy.
Or put it on vacation mode. Hiatus. Whatever.

I won't be taking custom orders since we are heading out of town for a couple weeks,
but check out my Spoonflower designs whenever!!

My Spoonflower store... make sure to try the "new" view on top, or view "collections", on the left side bar!

Last week was fun times - I've been working together with Marita from
on a design for Spoonflower's "Wellies & galoshes" contest!
Marita drew some wonderful kids from a bird's eye view - how original!!
She used some patterns from my "Moroccan" collection for the boots, umbrellas etc.

This is our design:

I have admired Marita's drawings for some time now - they are so adorable!
Please view her blog & click on the heart below each image to see it available for sale on
products through zazzle!

To view and vote in the "wellies" contest - voting open through midnight on Wednesday! -

Pellerina on Etsy -- CLOSING SOON!

Pellerina Design on Etsy will be closing after this month.
I have made a decision to move in a new direction -- I want to spend more time designing
rather than worrying about getting orders sent and fabric shipped in time.

Yesterday I bougth a new laptop through Woot -- 
it felt like a big brave move, but also a very exciting one!
With our family expanding, my sewing room needed to become another bedroom.
Sewing hasn't been as fun lately, with me being more stressed about deadlines and people
waiting for their purchases.

I will continue making new designs for Spoonflower, and hopefully other stores too!
When getting accepted at KESS, I felt like I got a big boost to keep designing.
I have applied at some other online stores too - I'll keep y'all updated!

So for now -- get your adorable swaddle blankets while you can!
At the beginning of April, Pellerina Design will close doors for a while.

We will take off with the family on a much needed vacation, and after that I will 
be busy preparing for our new baby! 

If you have custom orders -- get them in now before I'm gone!! 

And look out on PS I Adore You this week for an upcoming swaddle blanket deal!

onesie welcome home baby outfits

One of my best selling items has been the one-piece baby outfits.
They are time consuming to make, but the absolutely best result to see.
I felt like I was a bit overwhelmed last fall before I put the store on vacation for a while, so I had
to weigh the pros and cons of my Etsy hobby, and decide where to cut the stress.

First, I decided I really didn't enjoy making crib sheets at all.
They are terribly simple to make, and I'm sure they brighten up many nurseries, but there
are plenty of crib bedding stores on Etsy.
So out they went!
Second, I knew I dreaded getting orders for the one pieces.
I love onesie/one-piece outfits for my babies myself, and they are SO fun to design,
but not to mass produce!

So I am not stocking them in the store, but rather adding them on a ready-to-ship basis
as I feel like making them.

Well, I have to admit I accept them as custom orders --- ssshh!!

The fox one at the top was only listed a couple days before someone snabbed it.
Right now, this pink chevron outfit with the elf hat is for sale & ready to ship!

I love the extra long cuffs on this one. This piece will grow with your baby a bit longer than
the standard newborn sizes.
I enjoy making every one a little different with extra details here and there.

And when I have scraps left of fabric that's a bit too nice to get rid of, I have to make a piece
that will work!

So the pattern on the yoke is cut a big higher...

and the front pattern a bit longer. 

And then I added the softest stretch knit you ever did see!
I love the gray striped fabric.
The fabric with the houses is something I designed long time ago and for

Keep watching for new items! I'm on a roll!
