Where have I been...

Market season in Wellington has cranked into full speed in the last month, with back to back weekend fairs. Such fun, but I'm afraid it has been keeping me off line as I've been so busy sewing.

There are new hats, cranes hatching all over the show and the sweetest range of new girls dresses. I'm working on t-shirts with the help of my fabulously talented partner Rich, which I'll be showing off to the world really soon... watch this space.

A Trifle matter

If you haven't heard already there is a great new online source of fabulous goodies for little ones called Trifle Shoppe where Free Range Baby has its own little store. Here you can find a range of products, lots of them made locally in New Zealand and Australia. The site is the brain child of the fabulous Louise who also runs Skout trade fair that brings together designers and photographers across a range of areas.

Fun Browsing and Shopping!

Pippi, a free range baby

Wrapped up in Free Range Baby winter wears little Pippi and her gang of stuffed friends hit the parks and the beautiful coast line of Wellington yesterday. With 3 cameras on hand and a professional clown in tow we snapped for hours, with some super sweet results.

Thanks so much to Pippi, Justine, Daniel and Rich, you guys are awesome.

1000 pictures to sort and edit, but here is a preview.

A little note on the new arrival

The latest free range baby dress was inspired by the little peach number, modelled by none other than yours truly and created by my mum, circa 1985.

The new arrival

Due to demand, free range baby has just added a brand new style to the range.
The latest edition is a little dress, all puffed and pleated and utterly sweet.

Here is a sneak peak at the very first one
