Ahhh.. the joys of toddlerhood. My baby is beautiful and smart, kind and compassionate, funny and intuitive. She is also fiercely independant, and even at two, thinks she knows it all. In the same breath I am frustrated by her and in awe of her. Since the beginning of this year, I have done all my photos with a black backdrop and a dressform. I feel they are sharp, colorful, and different from the masses. However, while designing my new bubble bloomers, I had an outside photo shoot in mind.

I wanted something cute and "foofie", something meant to be worn on it's own and also under dresses. The new "Bubblebum" line was created. Soon to be joined by "Rufflebums", baby bottoms will never be the same. It was only natural that my little one model these new bloomies.
They are currently available at in different prints and sizes. They are fun and functional, comfy yet funky! I am always happy to do custom orders, so if you have something in mind, please don't hesitate to ask. As a collector of fabrics , I have a special fabric for every Half-pint. Keep an eye out for "Rufflebums", coming soon!

Summer Celebration time!

Can you feel the warm summer sun on your face? Can you hear the cool waves splashing on the shore? Can you smell the freshly cut green grass? No matter where you are this summer, the new additions to my Half-Pint Creations Etsy Shop are meant to wrap your gorgeous little ones in summer whimsy. The fabrics are light and summery and will make folks smile at their down home, yet funky combinations.
This ruffled halter top is designed with summer past times in mind. The amazing fabric will bring back all of the wonderful memories that made summer so magical.

Beside the Seaside is a funky colorful combination of hot pink, lime polka dots, and an amazing Alexander Henry print. Full of dolphins, turtles, crabs, and lots more sea creatures, you'll be able to hear the seashore as your little one runs on by!

Super talented Jennifer Paganelli 's fabric is as bright as the summer sunshine. This print is very popular, not to mention vibrant! It just begged to be turned into a ruffled halter for a sweet lil' Half-Pint.

Lastly, I found this amazing fabric at an Amish quilting shop here in PA. I put it back several times before I decided that I liked it. The print is very retro New york. Scenes from 1940 New York make this a dress/top like no other for celebrating the 4th of July holiday.

There are many new hand sculpted buttons as well as new "Mama made It" Kits in the shop. So grab a cup of coffee (or herbal tea if that is your thing) and stop in for a browse:)
Have a blessed weekend and enjoy your little ones this summer and always.
