Me please!

updated measurements and details added :-) measurements were taken today so feel free to add a little for growth if appropriate!

I'm on my phone so apologies for rubbish formatting. I won't be able to do measurements until next week as I'm on holiday ATM - sorry.

Who the gift is to be for (child's name,age, build) - Isabel, age 6m at reveal, average/chunky build.
Type of gift preferred (nappy/wool/fleece/WAHM clothing)- any of the above except fleece.
Nappy/clothing size - medium nappy / 9-12m clothing.
If nappy type of nappy and fastening (pocket/AIO/fitted/side snap/front snap/velcro) fitted nappy please (day or night), we don't really do pockets, not fussy on fastening.
If nappy preferred outer fabric/ones to avoid (BV/ minkee/fleece etc) - BV or knit/print please
If nappy preferred inner fabric/ones to avoid (BV/minkee/fleece etc) - BV preferred, fleece / minkee fine though.
Measurements for bottoms (wool/fleece/clothing - waist/hips/rise/inseam/length of skirt if applicable) - rise 16 for day, maybe a little more for night; hips 21; inseam 7-8; skirt length 7ish? Probably standardish medium with small/medium legs?
Measurements for tops/dresses (chest, length of top/dress, sleeve length) - standard 6-12 or 9-12 size chest 17; sleeve (underarm) 6"; length (top) 10"; length (dress) 15"
Favourite colours/ones to avoid - I like orange, pink, brown, turquoise, teal etc. Not so keen on greens. No black.
Favourite themes/things to avoid - we like animals (particularly bunnies but not GHMILY) / insects / flowers all good. No skulls. Nothing Xmas / too seasonal, though penguins or polar bears or snowflakes would probably be worn all year! No princesses or fairies.
Embroidery yes/no/(examples if possible, personalisation ok?) embroidery fine - no personalisation.
Favourite fabric prints/designers - don't know really. Not keen on ooga, like owl prints, like florals though prefer these as eg sleeves on clothes rather than all over.
Anything else your fairy might need to know? we use mostly fitteds with PUL wraps during the day and wool at night. I would love more interlock. Isabel is a moderate wetter. I like woolies to be quite plain in style - no frilly cuffs, bloomers etc. Clotheswise, she wears mostly dresses/tunics with leggings, or rompers. I love fishsticks rompers :-)

Who the gift is to be for (child's name,age, build) bump - due March/April 2012
Type of gift preferred (nappy/wool/fleece/WAHM clothing) nappy/wool/WAHM clothing
Nappy/clothing size small/ 0-3 months
If nappy type of nappy and fastening (pocket/AIO/fitted/side snap/front snap/velcro) pocket or fitted, side snap please, no velcro
If nappy preferred outer fabric/ones to avoid (BV/ minkee/fleece etc) pockets minkee outer, fitteds woven, knit or BV outer
If nappy preferred inner fabric/ones to avoid (BV/minkee/fleece etc) fleece or BV inner, no minkee/cuddlesoft
Measurements for bottoms (wool/fleece/clothing - waist/hips/rise/inseam/length of skirt if applicable) don't know - but I would think err on the side of longer rather than shorter - we are all tall in our family!
Measurements for tops/dresses (chest, length of top/dress, sleeve length) as before, I don't know, standard 0-3 month size probably best
Favourite colours/ones to avoid *eta* bump is blue, so I'd prefer blue, red, green as the main colour. Probably best to as avoid rainbow colours now we know it's a boy. No pink/purple please
Favourite themes/things to avoid love cartoon style animals (giraffes, elephants etc), stripes, cars, robots, planes, rockets, trains. No skulls, slogans, gothic stuff etc
Embroidery yes/no/(examples if possible, personalisation ok?) yes please, love embroidery, no personalisation
Favourite fabric prints/designers Hard to say as it's for bump, but we like cartoon style stuff and bright colours *eta love Landing Zone and fabrics with white background and coloured patterns. Also Michael Miller.
Anything else your fairy might need to know? we will be using fitteds mainly, so soakers/shorties would be ideal, although we'd love a show-off pocket and matching t-shirt set. Also love the Jamie Jumpers by ABK. Absolutely definitely no tie-dye please and nothing hippyish (no bamboo velour etc) just stick to plain bright colours or white with embroidery etc. *eta now we know bump is blue then wool needs to be plain or not overbright. Interlock or pul wraps would be ok too.

Me me me!

Who the gift is to be for (child's name,age, build): Jake, will be 9 months at reveal, quite a chunky boy (is currently about 18lb, chunky thighs and belly etc, lol). Wears 9-12m clothing now at 7m.

Type of gift preferred (nappy/wool/fleece/WAHM clothing): We have enough fleece so no fleece thank you. Always in need of more nappies/wool soakers/WAHM clothing so any of that would be great :)

Nappy/clothing size: Depending on brand, he is in medium or M/L (for example, he in in medium Weenotions, M/L Holdens Landing, M/L OWW, medium LLS, etc.. (if unsure just ask)

If nappy type of nappy and fastening (pocket/AIO/fitted/side snap/front snap/velcro): Our stash is mainly fitteds - the only exceptions being Weenotions pockets. (well, and Ittis and Easyfits but we dont need any more of those :giggle: ). No aplix please. We mainly prefer side snaps but then we do have front snapping ones such as OWWs so I'm not completely against front snap ones.

If nappy preferred outer fabric/ones to avoid (BV/ minkee/fleece etc): For outers I love minkee or dyed OBV. Also knit/woven prints. No fleece outers please.

If nappy preferred inner fabric/ones to avoid (BV/minkee/fleece etc): I dont mind BV, minkee or fleece for inners.
Measurements for bottoms (wool/fleece/clothing - waist/hips/rise/inseam/length of skirt if applicable): All in inches - Waist 18.5, Hip 19.5, thigh 10, inseam 8.5, rise 20 (yes he's a chunky boy)

Measurements for tops/dresses (chest, length of top/dress, sleeve length): Sleeve length (I've just measured from shoulder to wrist I hope that's right) 8.5

Favourite colours/ones to avoid: No pink :) love brights and pastels, also rainbow. If it's something dyed (like OBV etc) then I'm not keen on too much brown but dont mind it on prints/nappies etc. I love blues/turquoises, red also suits him and I don't mind purple on a boy either.

Favourite themes/things to avoid: We like animals (especially dogs, monkeys, farm animals etc), stars, owls, dinos, cars, planes, anything nautical like boats/stripes etc etc. Not that fussy really but if it's a print then I prefer things with actual pictures on rather than an abstract print/pattern.

Embroidery: Yes embroidery is fine. Anything goes really, as per the above themes. I don't mind something personalised for him.

Favourite fabric prints/designers: Some Michael Miller, Robert Kaufman (particularly the owl ones), polka dogs, landing zone, mint zoo, giraffes, Dino Dudes, Ooga, Elmo/Cookie Monster, we LOVE the Alexander Henry blue 2D Zoo print and I am obsessed with anything Cat in the Hat (Dr Seuss).

Anything else your fairy might need to know? I am not really that fussy, I have included anything I REALLY don't like above so don't worry too much :) If it's WAHM clothing then I love the Jamie Jumper rompers (from ABK, T&T etc) and tops and trousers are also good, if it's a nappy then a night one would be good. Would like it to be something that fits right away rather than something to grow into.

Louise, I'll PM you my address now. I may be back to sign up again for Lilly once I've checked funds :)
