Woo hoo for Pango pants!

Check out our new little bubble and tree 'Pango pants' for summer. 
Made in 100% cotton they come in a large range of colours and patterns for both boys and girls - your little one will surely look and stay cool this summer. 
Available in sizes 0-4, they have an elastic waist, and are finished with a workable drawstring to keep them snug around the hips. 
'Pango pants' can be worn full length or can be converted to a 3/4 pant just by rolling up the cuff to reveal a contrasting fabric matching the pocket. 
The design was inspired by my little boy continually growing out of his pants in length, but still fitting in the waist and legs. 
So with all this information the decision now is - just which colours to choose!

Best dressed camel.....

This camel was cleaner than me on this day - I wasn't even wearing makeup but his/hers eyes were made up beautifully!

Would this look out of place painted on my walls and exterior of my house??
Gorgeous old man with sword - they say this is to protect people if they need to, but they never need to use it! Pheeww!

I hope you don't mind that I show you more of my India photos!
It's nearly been a year since I returned, and I still haven't put them in an album, or even had them printed!  So this way at least I feel like I am being semi pro-active!

Colours of India

As I was flicking through the photos on my computer (while feeding at 4am!), I came across my photos from India.
Its hard to believe it was nearly a year ago, I set off  on a tour for 17 days, a girl on her own without husband and first child  - how time and a new baby flies!!
Anyway, here are just a few to show off the beautiful colours that I came across. 
This trip was a huge inspiration for little bubble and tree.
Here's just a few of my rolls and rolls of photos.

Mathilda's market....

Thanks to everyone who came and supported us on the weekend at the market.
I wasn't there, but my mum and sister said it was a traffic jam with prams and people getting in early for their Christmas shopping!
Along with the pants and tops, the biggest seller for the day was the necklaces and belts. 
They are great to dress up an outfit, or simply to hang on your wall. Boys seem to like to dress up too, so I have designed a range specifically aimed at their tastes and colours. 
Hats will be available soon too.

P.S. I just got my big delivery of Indian kaftan's in sizes of 0-4. So I will now be in a rush to get them photographed, and on the site in the next few weeks.

to market, to market....

I was hoping to get a few of these tops in to show you at Mathilda's market, but unfortunately they are only arriving this week! 
I know that is not much good seeing the market is today, but I will have them for sale on the website in the next few weeks - so for now you get the first sneak peak!! 

Cool lightweight cotton, great for protecting little arms from the sun.

A baby waits for no market....

Well, guess where I am? Yes of course the baby decided to come early! (I shouldn't have jinxed myself with the last post). We are happy to announce the safe (and quick) arrival of 'Lachlan Peter' into the world. He was a little early, but at 8lbs 7oz he was best to come out now before any more chocolate milkshakes fattened him up anymore.

Obviously now I will not be at the market, but the stand will go on.
Here is another sneak peak at the wares on offer at little bubble and tree.

Hot, hot, hot!!

Today I spent the day preparing for the market, and hoping I wouldn't go into labour in the process! 
I have my mum and sister as a backup so if you don't see a very pregnant lady there at the stand you know where I'll be!!
I received my images from Little bird photography today, so I am very excited to be able to add a few of them to the blog. Here is a few of my faves.

Pretty pinks all in a row!

Here are just a few pairs of pretty girls pants that belong to the Summer range.

Most of the pant designs can be worn by the little boys too, but these 3 might just appeal a teeny bit more to the little girls!!

Is it too early to decorate for Christmas?

On Saturday I thought I might take myself to the Red Hill market for a little shop. It was a good idea until I saw the crowds of cars and people everywhere. But I kept walking (waddling in fact), eating truffles for lunch, and then on my way to the car (nearly in labour), I came across a piñata stand! I had to fight my way in there though, they were selling like hotcakes!  
Of course I had to buy one too!! They are made so beautifully and with so much detail. 

They say in Mexico, smashing open a piñata is a Christmas tradition, but I think I am just going to just keep him as a decoration - he's too colourful to smash!

Bright enough to eat!

I have been sewing frantically to get these little bits and bobs ready for the website and the markets. 
But to keep them safe from sticky hands, I put them in a case to protect - now I don't want to take them out!
Mmmmm, on second thoughts, maybe I could just buy him a new little case to play with!

(by the way, these are the birds, fish and butterflies to add to the necklaces and belts).
