Bongo Baby Blog

Last chance to get Shi Shi Nix and 20% discount storewide April 01 2014

Hey groovy mama!

I have a special announcement for you.  I've been making Bongo Baby EC gear for over 8 years and my energy is heading in new and exciting directions...which means this is the final sell-out of all the Shi Shi Nix!

These sweet little absorbent baby pants have become favourites for ECers around the globe, and are also great back-up for toilet training.  I've just made up a big batch, so take this chance to stock up on a few pairs while they're still available because once they're gone, they're gone!

As an extra bonus, get 20% discount at checkout by entering the code: yay20

This discount applies to everything storewide including sale items, and is only valid for a short time so get onto it now :-)  You can find the Shi Shi Nix under the 'EC gear' tab in the menu.


new stuff and sale December 14 2013

I've just uploaded all the remaining new creations, and discounted a heap of stuff I made a while grab a bargain while you can.  Plan ahead for next winter with some gorgeous winter woollens and bamboo fleece pants with lovely leaf applique, along with some other gorgeous things on the SALE page. 

I've been doing occasional online markets on facebook, and for the next little while I'll be adding new creations each week to this website instead.  I plan to do this each Wednesday so come and have a look what's new each week.

Thank you for supporting my handmade creations!

next online market July 10th 2013 on facebook July 03 2013

I've been busy in the sewing room making vests, vests and more vests!

I was never much into vests my whole life, then made myself one about a month ago. I LOVE it.  I can't believe i've lived more than 3 decades without a nice warm snuggly vest to keep my essential bits warm, while still having my arms free for some fresh air.  It is seriously the grooviest thing.

So, extending this excitement out into the world I am making vests in all different sizes from 000, babies, toddlers, children and i'll also make a few adult ones too. Here are some snippets of the upcoming collection....

The collection will be launched on my facebook page HERE on Wednesday 10th July at 8:30pm AEST....if you haven't done so already, 'like' my facebook page and be online next Wednesday night, you might see something (or 2) you love!

 I've been sewing up a storm in the sewing room with yummy fabrics like bamboo fleece and wool, making some super cute little pants, vests, jumpers and cardis ready for winter 2013.  If you haven't heard yet, the collection will be launched on facebook on Sunday 12th May at 8:30pm Sydney time.  'Like' the Bongo Baby page on facebook to see this sweet collection, then I will be putting things on this website after the facebook market later in May.

A Bliss Baby has joined the tribe! May 24 2012

Hey everyone!

We are ecstatic to announce the arrival of our little baby boy born under the full moon on Easter Sunday, 8th April 2012.  You can read our full birth story here:

It has been such a beautiful and amazing journey and I've been feeling really inspired and doing lots of sewing lately too!  ECing my 3rd baby, I have created these awesome little 'baby bum mats' which can be tucked up and worn as a nappy.  They are so cool and handy, making EC really easy.  I'm uploading them at the moment in the EC Nappy Free section of the store.

Here is a photo of our little guy, Zenon Darnesh the day he was born.
