Help me name BR's future edition to the family!

Maybe you thought by the heading I was pregnant?!?

Well truth be known, I have been baking something - but the non screaming and burping type! >.<

Many of you know I have been working on my own pattern over the last 8 months, and to them who do not... Well, you know now!

It's been a slow going process between motherhood, and being in the studio, and the sheer fact it takes ages to draft your own pattern! Nonetheless I have made steady progress though these many months. Every few weeks I find myself opening a nice bottle of red, having a glass, and hitting the studio: drafting and cutting, wasting a little more minki, oops! And a little more! ( My pile of "duds" is getting quite impressive!)

This making a pattern business is tricky! I have mocked up, frocked up and sewn up half a dozen patterns - all not quite fitting... but... the last one I think I finally cracked it!

 And that was just the large ones! Oh dear! Now I need to start on the mediums, and then the smalls! I could fairly say it might take me a whole year to get a full range of sizes!


It's 1:00am and I cannot sleep - I am a late owl!
 My brain is busy as a little madhatter, bumble bee!
So I figure it's a good time to blog.

I am very close to finishing up on the custom orders for the year, and thinking about the holidays: what am I thinking about doing during my holidays? Spending a good chuck of time getting this pattern fit for 2012!

This is where I would love your input... come into the picture and help be apart of BR!

I need a name for my nappy pattern!

I figure I want to draw inspiration from the Thylacine tiger. This is what inspired the Bare Rumps logo: A stylised image design inspired by the real tiger's paw print.

Simply add your ideas to "name" my pattern.

To the exciting part!

I will draw on one name I like the most as the winner, and that name will become the name of my pattern, and as a token of my appreciation will be giving out the exclusive password to my website so that when I am activating items under lock and key before stocking time, you will have 20 odd minutes of leisurely time of carting 2 nappies from my first 2012 stocking!

I am back to work on the 2nd of Feb. in the studio, and working towards a good size stocking for March. 

So ladies... Fire away! Throw me with some ideas to name my pattern, inspired by the Tassie Tiger. 

I will announce a winner mid Feb 2012.

    How about instead drawing some inpiration for the other unique Tasmanian marsupial who (with a bit of luck) woun't become extinct - but it does seem to be heading that way. The Tassie Devil.

    So I'd go with:
    Little Devils

  7. Wild Heart

    Untamed nappies

    Secret Sighting

  8. Corrina (aborigional name for young tasmanian tiger) i love this one :)

  9. Thyla
