Purple Passion Wrap Auction!!


UPDATE: I have gotten so many comments about this wrap so I am excited to start the bidding! Auction opened today at 1pm!  Ends August 7 at 8:00 pm EST....check it out here!**

Alright, I tried again...and I really can't decide if I like this one or not!  Please let me know (honesty is OK).  I am debating offering it up on Sweet Retreat for a FFS (free for shipping) auction.  I'll keep you posted.  It's a good wrap still, totally functional, and the purples are beautiful, but they bled more than I had planned into the green, which was supposed to be lime, but is now kind of periwinkle...either way, let me know what ya think :)

**Edited 7/20/09: Thanks for the honesty, ladies!  I think I will list it as an auction on Sweet Retreat that will begin August 6, 2009 at 2:00 EST!  Check it out and bid!**  

This is before the rinsing and washing....why does it fade so much?  Any tips on how to keep the color bold!!?  I left it on for so long!??!

Tie-Dye Wrap Giveaway!!

I cannot contain my excitement!!  I have just tie-dyed my first wrap!  This is actually my first attempt at tie-dying in general and I am so happy.  I will practice more, tho, because it faded more than I thought it would, and I guess I'll just leave it in the dye longer next time...but hope these pics capture how beautiful I think it turned out.  I did it the 'spiral' way....

This wrap is going to be given away at my new friend's Kristen Self's Blog....go check it out and enter!  She has the 'rules' to enter on her site!!  Thanks for stopping by! :)

About Wombfruit Wraps...

All Wombfruit Wraps are made from 100% cotton gauze. This fabric is incredibly versatile: strong, lightweight, comfortable, soft, breathable and easy to wrap with. I purchase my fabric from various manufacturers and since not all gauze is created the same (some weaves are different than others), I make sure that each fabric I use is perfect for babywearing.

*In each of my wraps, I sew a ribbon into the hem as a center-marker for convenience in tying on your wrap. Pictured below is the Bubblegum Color with the sheer brown ribbon white polka dots!

Standard wrap length is 5 1/4 yards long. Petite wraps are 5 yards long, and Large wraps are between 5 1/2 - 6 yards long. Extra Large wraps are in the 7 yard range. If you need a Petite or Large wrap, please select the appropriate choice during check out so I will know to adjust the wrap length accordingly. If you need a custom wrap (shorter than petite or longer than large), please contact me in advance, before purchasing so I can accommodate your order with your fabric choice. I strive to make each Wombfruit Wrap the best fit for each mama!

Wombfruit Wraps are ~one size fits most~ at the standard length, which includes mamas up to 5'9" and/or size 14. The Petite length is best suited for petite-sized mamas smaller than 5' and/or size 2. The Large length is preferable for overly large-chested mamas, taller mamas over 5'10", if your general stature is just fluffier than the standard size (size 16+), if you plan on wearing more than one child in your wrap at the same time, or if you plan on sharing the wrap with another wearer who is quite larger/taller than you (like a daddy :)

Standard width is 24-27 inches wide (97% of all my wraps are between these widths). Width is measured from hemmed edge to hemmed edge, on flattened, non-'crinkly' fabric (washing and drying are what crinkles it up). Small width is 20-22 inches wide and will be noted beside each fabric choice.

Standard and Petite Wraps $32
Large Wraps $37
Extra Large Wraps $42

Custom and X-Large Wraps may be subject to additional costs.

Standard First Class Shipping to any US address is $5.
An additional $1.50 may be added to that during check out for Priority Shipping.

Feel free to contact me at fruit_ofyour_womb@yahoo.com if you have questions or need clarification :) Thanks!!

Nursing in the Wrap

Alright, for those of you who are wondering how to nurse in your wrap, or are struggling with it, here are some helpful videos I found that really show you step by step how to do it!  And just like the back wrapping videos, they are not of me or my little ones, but another mama who has a younger baby than I do, so watch and learn :)

In the first one, the mama is demonstrating how to nurse a newborn.  (I *really* like this one!)

In this one, the mama is nursing a 4 month old.

4th of July Farmer's Market

My good friend Heather came out to guest at my table this past weekend and we had an amazing time!  There was a comfortable breeze almost the whole time and we doubled in size of traffic and vendors.  It was so much fun!  Statesboro was in for a real treat with her wetbags and other products available for sale.  I use every one of her products (wetbags for cloth diapers, wetbags for kitchen towels/dishrags, and wetbags for mama cloth~if you don't know what this is and are interested me, send me an email or check out her site :)  If you missed the market, you can come out next weekend!  Heather won't be there but you can always visit her website: Loving Touch Wetbags!  There's also a link to her site in my LINKS section.  

I am really getting a good response out there, as more and more mamas see the importance of wearing their babies (and grandma's and friends, too...thanks for the support!)  I am still trying to organize a Babywearing Extravaganza come this fall, when it's cooler out.  Stay tuned and in touch!

(Heather's on the right, and I am in the wrap...)
