Testers needed for Thyla Pouch pattern for 3yrs to 6 yrs. Day testers needed.

Super excited!

I have designed an XL Thyla Pouch pattern cloth nappy.

The nappy fits my daughter like a glove so far (Paige was the TP Large model inspiration, fit wize) and this drafting for the XL is coming at a great time for us as Paige is on the second last snaps on TP, and I need to sort her night cloth'n....
 What do I do? 
Start designing a bomb-proof night nappy of course!!!

 About the XL Thyla Pouch:

My idea is to have on the market an XL for day use for very large children, children with special needs, and late TT (Toilet training). This TP nappy also is a night nappy for the same age bracket, with the right boosters that are sold separately.

The night boosters with the nappy will be local testers, with one interstate, local is good for me, I get a hands on idea of the fit of the nappy, and cuppa and chat with the mum face to face. The nappy will need tweaking naturally.

What help I do need now and through this blog: I am hoping to find a child 3 and over (pref around 5) that has special needs and is in nappies full time, so I can test both days and nights in one tester. I will be requiring a dedicated phone conversation for feed back, and also the cover of material costs + post (minus my time it takes to create the nappy). If you think you can help me out, please comment on this blog, with:

Your name-
Child's Age-
Child's Weight-
And a short description of how many you use per day and if you use cloth or disposables.
I will check out the comments and kindly ask one that suits my requirements to contact me via email. 

The plan is to open slots to cart, next yr listing work horse sets of six in the XL 3yr old to 6ys old, even though work horses are not my "specialty" I am really keen to offer then for the Mums that have a child in nappies 24/7. I can not imagine the size of the bills for disposables and am really keen to help out by providing a really well-tested XL Thyla Pouch minki nappies that do not require a cover, and that will not break the bank but most importantly, work.

The XL will also be avaliable for poppin designer nappies with extra option to buy the night boosters, as well as a few work horses listed around the parts.
So far I am testing 14 layers of absorbency with room to move up a few more pending testing.

Exciting stuff right!

Here is my XL Thyla Pouch in action with the night booster this arvo on my daughter Paige (she just turned 3 yr old).
She is very tall light 15kg child, she wears it on the tightest snaps, it has 6 snaps and very long wings, with tummy elastic.

                                                               (I like big butts!)

I am determined to make a good night nappy for toddlers!!
 As soon as I feel like I have cracked the nut, they will be available on the market :) Rubs hands together.......

The Medium Thyla pouch is nearly finished testing from out side sources! Wicked!

I have also decided to can the small's in a Thyla pouch, and newborns at this stage, my speciality is designer cloth, and I feel I just cannot work with that size for a good landscape creation, plus babies grow out of them to fast!

Having Paige bed share for two and half yr's full time, and with me now half the time really has made me want good boosters, EKK my bed!!!

 My philosophy on cloth is "Thirsty boosters make the nappies!" "Who needs a umbrella grab a BR booster!" "boosters packed with punch POW POW!".

 I just may be able to have faith in my heavy wetter child to create a good XL 3 to 6 yr old night nappy with your help!  (I will do a shout out for local testers for the nights once I make a few up).

Having a week of was fantastic, I feel great.
The new machine "PFAFF Creative sensation" dubbed "The Baron" is helping.
Wednesdays are my one day a week dedicated to loading images/ sending receiving email/ being on line so you can always catch up on a Wed.

Look forward to seeing if I can get some help to give some help with some children with special day cloth'n requirements.

Thank you! To all the peeps that carted extreme customs today!

Wow what an action packed day/night on my website inbox, just as I am getting to zero order status, I am full again! 

Well.. not so full as the last few months!

I am super excited about this listing while I take a cog back because it means I now own a PFAFF sensation! Apologies to all that experienced " Paypal is not available at this time" or "my cart contains invalid items". My webby was really playing silly buggers with me today/ tonight.

 This dream machine is my ultimate desire, so much more than a dream date with Edward out of the "Twilight" saga. Can you believe it!.... BUT... I have decided that I am worthy of working on only the best machine available on the market, the stitch choices are seriously out of this world along with "raised 3D" effect on embroidering!! So please know to all, IF YOU have carted today/tonight, your money is not only going to the machine that is going to make BR bigger and better, but your customs are going to seriously POP!!

 Geee! Tempting to go for a body make over instead of the PFAFF,  hey cut me some slack here, I have given birth! These puppies are not what they use to be (I hope to rustle up a few mumma laughs here) and while yes... it is tempting, not even that would de-tour me from my hunk of metal that is the "Sensation". Droooolllll....

  Na jokes aside..... I am seriously over the moon to pick up my dream machine, it will make my heart beat faster (if that's possible) and fonder... Gives me space to really enjoy my break and my creative outlet that will be poured into your "Dream Extreme" customs over the next 3 months.

I have an estimate of making two a week, which leaves me freedom to really get stuck into them design wise and enjoy them, wholehearted!! Weeee bonus for both of us these customs are going to be gorg!!

They will be all posted off as a group, sending on the 22nd of Nov. Keep your eye on the BR facebook page around the 20th for all the uploading action!

I will contact each custom holder as I am ready to do them, and either hold a consultation via email, or better  via phone, so in the meantime, get cracking on ideas to throw at me wholehearted when my email hits your inbox!

Here is an adoring snap of my new machine, gah! Is she not a babe? How a grown woman can crumple at the sight of metal beats me!

Till then I am only on email once a week to sort designs/ emails/ phone calls for these custom ideas, and answer any emails if they present them selves via inquiry, so if I am not on line like lightning speed know that I am enjoying my next three months chilled style pottering away with designs in the studio, and having a break from the hustle and bustle of the beautiful world that is WWW (world of web).

Till later in the yr, a truck load of farting unicorn rainbow loveliness to you all....

Last custom slots are coming up in ten min- here scroll down down down! Until you see the listings!!!
