New Linen Baby Bibs Available!!

I think I needed another type of item in my etsy shop, and I noticed how fun it would be to make bibs! These are some of the first ones I have ever made, and I am so happy with them! I used linen for the bodies, and then patched 3 cool squares of fabric on top of each one. I left the edges open like an applique. I am so happy with these too. I hope people enjoy them! I can make matching blocks with them too!!
See them now in my etsy shop.

Baby Blocks Wholesale Order!

These will be going to a boutique in France!! I am having so much fun with the new color combos I am using with these 20 Stuffed Organic Play Cubes.
See more on Etsy!

Spring Roll and Burrito

Aawwwww...Please visit this fun shop that I would love to collaborate with! What a fun item on this page too- Organic teething toys. Organic Terry Cloth thingies that are 2"x4", that you wet and freeze. They are better than crummy plastic things filled with water too! How fun.
See the shop here.
I created these fun boots a little over a month ago, and I love them!! Some of them are available at the Neighborhood Co-Op in Carbondale, IL. I had great luck with these at my last craft fair too! I would love to hear some feedback on these little guys! Packaging coming soon...I hope!

Pink and Mint FLoral Garden Baby Booties and Stuffed Organic Play Cube

These fabrics I found at an amazing Quilt Shop called Peace and Applique in Rochester, IL. I had not been in there for many years, and since then they expanded into the building behind the original store. They have tons of designer fabrics, which are quite hard to find in this area. The back room features Urban Chick Vintage Repro fabrics in many prints that remind me of BABY!!
The store is worth the drive! It is about 20 minutes from Springfield too, not bad!

Flannel Froggie Baby Booties and Block

The Flannel Frog Baby Booties and Organic Fluff Stuffed Block.
Matching Sets Soon available by listing on etsy, or always available by Custom Order!!

A New Way of Doing Things...

So I realize I am neglecting this blog to care for my Craft Fair Blog, so in order to keep all of you Happy Solez Organics followers in tune, I will keep everyone updated on my new progress of items. I have been having such an amazing response to my baby booties and my Organic Fluff Stuffed Blocks. I vended at a craft fair the first weekend of December and a lot of people recognized that I sell my baby booties at the Neighborhood Co-Op in Carbondale too!!

A Green way to Create and Sew

I found this photo here on
This amazing cork fabric is very cool. I saw that MiaJoie on etsy is now making Cork Baby Shoes, a wonderful way to be eco-friendly too. Now, this cork fabric is pretty thin compared to other cork available at the hardware store like this HERE. The stuff at Lowes is maybe 1/8" thick, and is about $10 per roll. It is a good sized roll too. But the designated Cork Fabric/ FabriCork is nearly $130 per linear yard!! Wow, that is quite an investment, but maybe worth it. I love how people are thinking Green these days! Especially crafters!

More Styles of Stuffed Organic Play Cubes!!

Please visit my shop to see these cute blocks and learn more about them! I have had lots of custom orders for these lately, and also did some fun Halloween ones too!
These blocks have fluffy, Organic Material inside which is Half Bamboo, and Half Organic Cotton. Making them Antimicrobial! Babies can safely put these in their mouths without any worries! And they would never be a choking hazard.
Thanks for checking out Happy Solez Organics!

Now Available! Quilted Purse Handles/Straps for Your Own Sewing Projects!

While sewing last night, I came up with this idea. I love adding very special details to purses, making them better than the next gal's. So, I propose that you let me do the tough detailing work that takes a lot of time, and use my wonderful purse straps.handles on your own bags. I can make them in just about ANY COLOR TOO!! See them HERE!!
I use high quality, designer quality fabrics on the outsides, and sandwich fleece inside them. Then I quilt the straps for extra durability and strength.
Thanks for looking at my shop!

Sweet Socks - NEW from Happy Solez!

See them HERE!!! As you can tell, I had lots of fun taking pictures of these cool new creations. I found a pair of booties on a shopping excursion one day, and used them to create my own pattern. This is such a fun way to update pre-existing items to suit your own needs too. I also used an upcycled shirt, that had an awesome pattern on it. And gave it a new use, and hopefully a new home! I am gearing up for Strange Folk Daily, here. So wish me LUCK!!!!!

Today's Adventure...

...The Marina!

Onesies now Available in the Shop!

I am now offering onesies! I embellish them with cute creatures and other pretty images. I cut out the images/shapes from the high-quality fabrics, then fuse them onto the items with webbing and my iron. Then, I go back and add decorative stitches to keep this image on the onesie much better! These are great, and they look so cute with my booties! See them here in the SHOP!! Thanks for stopping by.

Some Fun Organic, Stuffed Blocks Going into the Shop Tomorrow!!

Yay! I love making these blocks because I get to combine a lot of pretty prints together in one project. That fuzzy stuff you see sticking out of the sides is my Certified Organic Fluff Liner! It is half Bamboo/ Half Organic Cotton.
**Lucky for us, Bamboo is naturally Antimicrobial. Perfect if they wind up in the mouths of young ones!

See them in the shop tomorrow!
