Hey Claire I think I owe you $2 Of course I didn't even end up ordering for ...I ordered for a friend of mine so I won't even get to see or pet the dipey and now I went and sepnt all my diaper money until September @ PWP

I have to say Lisa is AWESOME to work with!!! I needed an embroidery design of a crab for this friend of mine and she went and found 6 different designs to add to her glaaery! She rocks!!!

Well, I did it I ordered probably more than I should have but fewer than I wanted to:

- 3 organic velour nighttime fitteds with hand-dyed outers and decorative topstitching
- 3 organic velour fitteds (TRIM fit) with hand-dyed outers and decorative topstitching

After I placed my order I started kicking myself about not ordering embroidery, so I e-mailed Lisa right away and asked if I can add it. I'm going to add frog pjs, penguin pjs, and duck pjs to the nighttime diapers and swirly bee, swirly dragonfly, and swirly ladybug to the trim cut fitteds.

You will have to let us know what you think of the OV nighttime dipes! I really really want to try those! Love your embroidery choices!

:LOL Hmmm, that's probably a pretty good assessment!!! And, I was forgetting about my newborn stash. That's a pretty wide overkill I have going there already.

Ooh, everyone that's ordering... YUM! They sound sooooooo cool! Wow! I love the PJ embroidery for night time dipes! GREAT idea! And, the custom found crab! How cool! I had crabs once but I just didnt like them all that well or at least not well enough to get diapers embroidered with their images. What's her fascination with crabs?

I should really edit this to make it clear that they were pet crabs and not... low lying crabs if you know what I mean... but uh, it's more fun leaving you all guessing!!! :LOL

It's not her fascination with crabs...we did an exchange that was themed "Where you live" so we had to find things that were special to your area to send...I live in MD and the Chesapeake Bay Blue Crab is about all we are known for so I got her an AI2 with that embroiderd on it

ETA - I'd love a pm wiht the Buggle in his trim dipes too if you don't mind

Doesn't it????!!!! I've tried different WAHM diapers on the buggle for two years and this is definatly tied for 1st place for dreamy-fit with my medium new-style OV front-snapping elbees. I'm so glad to have a stash made up of 50/50 Precious Coverings side snap fitteds and El bee front snap fitteds! A total dream!!! Now if she would start doing cool embroidered wool T&T covers in the same style.... I can't wait for that (coming soon, Lisa????)!!!!

Yes - that is exactly it, egging all the rest of us on

Thus far I have avoided visiting the site again, and am remaining strong and true to my word. I wonder if DH knows just how good a wifey I really am? The real question....how long can I hold out (or can i get myself to relist all my maternity stuff on the TP and make some paypal).

Man I would love to have that many PC diapers (heck I'd settle for 1 of my own right now) She is going to be first on my list for when I can get off the wagon again in September

And yeah if she made embroidered T&T covers like that I think I would sell my beloved FCB AIO stash to fund them!!! (But don't start pm'ing me yet people!!! This is hypothetical!!!)

Angelica,
Okay - that is impressive. Now I'm supposed to resist wanting to buy an AIO AND a fitted. How cruel are you?

Spark - no, we don't know what we're having yet. Having never custom ordered before, could I place my order and get it in teh queue - then choose fabrics/colours when I find out what I've got in here?

Okay,
I knew that I should never sat here and read the entire post because now I've gone and ordered a custom OV fitted hand-dyed with an embroidered flag ribbon.

BTW Angelica, could you PM the pics too? Thanks!

I don't see why you couldn't... but it seems like you'd better hurry up and do that before she closes up. Seriuosly... so many people seem like they've ordered. It's only a matter of time before she closes customs.

navygirl-- oooh! nice choices!!!


Kate -- YUM!!! Wonderful! I love that overlapping heart design!

She's closing for 2 weeks in September Claire. Hopefully though that will be enough to get her to stay open for a while longer

Yup ...just cus she has to close her store in two months (probably has a trip planned or some such thing where she won't be able to sew), doesn't mean she will be staying open for customs once she has more orders than she can fill during the remainder of the summer. :LOL That just wouldn't be good planning!

All thee on the fence, best get your orders in now!

Angelica, Thanks again for the pics! I'm so impressed! I never would have thought that a diaper could fit like that!

Thanks Claire! I can't wait to see it! I'm hoping that it's as great as I'm think it will be!

http://www.preciouscoverings.com/shop/ <---------check out the picture of the five fitteds on the storefront page--those are mine!

And, I hear she's getting her wool in SOON, and will be making embroidered side snapping T&T covers, too!!! Oh I'm so drooling at the thought of a bunch of PC OV fitted & wool cover sets with complimenting or matching embroideries.....

Me, too!!! I have 12 OV true AIOs from bottombumpers and VK and I must say I am so looking forward to adding some embroidered Precious Coverings ones to our little AIO stash for the in-laws/DH and outings. Plus, some of her larger embroideries are so lovely and ornate that they really belong on an AIO, not on a fitted.... I'm going with 20 dollar embroidery choices for AIOs and 5-13 dollar embroideries on fitteds for my order, as I prefer smaller little touches on the fronts of fitteds and big splashy stitch-heavy embroideries on the backs of AIOs.... ....

I was at PC checking out Angelica's diapers again. Now that I know whose they are I wanted to take a really close look and noticed that her turn around time is now 5-7 weeks for customs! I'm glad that I got my order in when I did, even though, I'm probably closer to the 5 week mark!
