Check out her design gallery, she does some rockin designs I haven't seen anywhere else, like jolly roger pirate longies and shorts, jerry bear and steal your face longies and shorts, and monkey butt pants and shorts. I am on Amy's mailing list and she is getting ready to have matching t's! Like a banana T to go with the monkey shorts and an Arrrgh! shirt for the pirate pants! Too cute!!!!

Cute I really like her website.
But... Crankypants sounds a bit too much like Fussybutt to me. You know? Which is not cool if that's where she got her name idea from. Probably just a co-winky-dink.

That's what I thought too! They are cute designs though.

I don't see the crankypants-fussybutt connection . Even if she was "inspired" by fussybutt...who cares? Its not like somebody is going to confuse a FB fitted with wool longies...right? My girls' nicknames are cranky-pants and stinky-pants.

BUT ANYWAY...I love those designs! The flames are awesome and the skull/stripey pants are too cool

Oh my, can you imagine the mud flap girlie and the word "Badass" on a pair of longies. : It seems like great stuff at good prices. For her sake, though, I hope none of those logos are trademarked...

ETA: I'm talking about the logos on the longies and shorts, *not* the name of the site.

Come on folks, just how many diaper name possibilities are there!?!? I mean, come on, everyone come up with a diaper/soaker/etc name... This is the formula:
Take one word that means Arse
Take one word that describes said Arse.
Mix them together in whichever order you see fit
AND you get...

Fussybutt
Holden's Landing
BumHuggers
LoveyBums
PeenutPants
Tiskens Trousers
Bum Ware
Little Caboose
Baby Bloomrs
Happy Heiny
Sunflower Derrieres
Rump Knits

ETC ETC ETC

I don't think anyone stole the idea to take one part bottom and one part descriptive. I just think after a while there's not much else to do!

CUTE site! I love her designs! I've used her yarn before (If I recall the clips of the colors correctly) and it didn't hold up to my heavy wetter. BUT, her designs are so great. If I did a slot with her, I think I'd ask if I could send my own yarn. They are so creative and FUN!!! Two thumbs up!

Spark and her four firecrackers.

I dont see the name connection either - basically we are talking stuff that goes on a tush, only so many names out there :LOL

And Spark - I think Arse is a great name for your next company - something like "Put it on Your Arse"

And I don't want to pick a fight so, I'll shutup now :ignore

The flames, the skull, and the monkey are VERY similar to projects in the Stitch N Bitch books.

Some really cute stuff though! Do we know who this mama is? We are so MDC-centric it seems like anybody knitting soaker pants and shorts MUST be an MDC mama! :LOL
