Tracey is a huge Tea fan and had been given a gorgeous Teapot for christmas, so of course she needed a tea pot cozie. I looked and looked for patterns, but I just couldn't find anything at short notice that was both modern and funky and practical, so instead I modified my Teacup Carrier pattern to create this.
Back to pattern writing now.... Oh and there is sneak peak pictures from the pattern cover shoot for my next 2 patterns over on my facebook page, just click on the facebook link on the right sidebar.

Therefore Paula Storm Designs was born:
I have started with 2 of my absolute favourite projects! First up I would like to introduce you to my Sit me up Donut with detatchable Patchwork rattles and Squeeky Toys. My baby girl, loves to sit up, she really doesn't like laying down, so I needed to come up with a way for her to sit up on her own. This donut is high enough so that she can fall backwards or forwards or sideways and she can still get back to a sitting position on her own. It is also heavy enough that it doesn't slide around on her. It makes for a very happy munchkin and therefore a happy mummy :)
She can also grab her rattles and squeeky toys and because they are on an elastic cord, they don't fall down or get lost and she can always grab hold of at least one of her toys. They are also detatchable, so you can put one on babys wrist and they can take them where ever they go.
Next up is my cute little seahorse. Sammy is about 40cm tall and just looooves cuddles! She is a great mummy and loves to share her babys with other babys who love to have a chomp. A boy version is also included with different shaped eyes.
Baby sammy is perfect for little ones as her face and tail is just the right size for bubs to grab hold of, and the tags make for fun chewing.
My patterns are now ready to go and if you are interested in ordering Wholesale, please just leave a message here or send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send through the details.
If you would like to order the patterns retail, head over to my Etsy Site and you can buy them there.
Or as a celebration of my first ever paper pattern release, I'd like to give away a few of my patterns, so leave me a message if you would like to win one and let me know which pattern you'd prefer! I'll be drawing a winner on Monday the 7th of Feb at 9am. Aust Time.
A few quick thanks, Thanks to my mum for her invaluable and unwavering support! To my Nephew for taking some amazing pictures on a very hot day, and especially to my husband and family, for putting up with me over the last few months :)
