April 22nd is Earth Day

Here at TotRags, it is my focus to not only create superbly functional and adorable items, but to also make them eco-eco friendly. What is Eco-Eco? My def: Little to no Ecological impact that stems from being Economically smart. Basically, much of the money we all spend and the types of products we purchase negatively impacts the environment due to the amount of waste we create, carbon emissions, wasted resources...the list is long. And the more NEW stuff you buy, the more you add to those problems. (If you've seen the movie Wall-E, you kinda get the gist.)

In an effort to be more Eco-Eco friendly, most of the items in my shop are made from 95% recycled, thrifted, salvaged, or re-purposed materials. I am very proud and happy to use my design and sewing skills in a way that hopefully supports the Eco-Eco cause.

Earth day is April 22nd. What will you commit to this year to better this wonderful place we all call home? I'd love to hear it so - leave your committment(s) in the comments section! If I get 20 comments or more, I'll do an extra give-away drawing for those people who commented - for a pair of Full Coverage Toddler Bibs!

If you need a little help figuring out what you CAN do, check out this post at No Impact Man.

Can we build it?

Yes we can!

What boy doesn't dream of becoming a builder some day? I have to admit, Bob is one of my favorite cartoon characters because of his positivity and helpful crew. These new Full Coverage Toddler bibs are perfect for the aspiring contractor!

They're in the shop!

Cute new striped DipeWipe Clutch in the shop!

Vintage Lime

I found this very well preserved thrifted vintage towell and just couldn't leave it in the store. Not only is the lime green color so unusual and soothing, but it has that wonderful "like it's carved into the material" flower desgin that is such an unmistakeable "time-stamp". I knew it would make wonderful vintage bibs!

4 available - and in the shop!

New Full Coverage Bib Design

As promised, I have finished revising the design of the Full Coverage Bib. Thank you all for your suggestions! I took them all into consideration - and this is the fantastically improved result. Same great design, but with a slightly larger neckline and a snap closure. A "Thank you! goes out to this adorable little guy who held still long enough to model the first one!

It's in the shop!

A disturbing image & a Poll

OK - I'm sorry...but I just had to post this. Am I the only one that finds this image disturbing? And also funny?

I have been thinking of making a similar drool bib - in TotRag fashion of course. I can't however, help but remember that the projection of my baby's drool always seemed to fall directly downward into their lap - totally missing their bibs...except for the constant trail that trickled down the chin and ended up soiling their shirt no matter what bib they had on, or how snugly it fit around their sweet little kissable necks. So i can't help but think that if this bib was to really catch drool it would have to be more like a "no scratch" animal collar. You know, those white plastic funny looking things? And I'm sensing that the general public would deem a "no scratch" collar on a baby to be a bit escessive. I mean, they do make little hand covers for those sharp fingernails.

I'm just not sure yet - so what are your thoughts? Can you see a TotRag drool bib or is it an idea to bury? Thank you in advance for your participation in not only my dry humor - but a first TotRags poll!
