Million Baby Chicks Hoodie…with A POCKET!

It’s Fall….and where I live in Wisconsin, you know what that means: HOODIE WEATHER!

I love every season….and here in Wisconsin, sometimes we get to experience all 4 in one day! Aren’t we lucky!?!?!

After a beautiful summer, though, I love the transition to cozy, comfy long sleeve clothes….and now, by far, my most popular make for women is: THE MILLION BABY CHICKS Hoodie! You can read more about it’s origins here….

I get bored easily, so my favorite thing about this design is being to mix & match fabrics to make One of a Kind creations.

This week, I’m auctioning off a new batch at Red Rose Auction House. Today is the last day to get in on these deals, because once the auction is over, I will be listing them at retail price in my Etsy Shop.

NEW with this batch, on the suggestion of one of my dearest friends: POCKETS! Not just little pockets, though: ONE large Pocket with a singular opening!

Here’s what’s HOT of the MACHINE:

THIS OOAK MEDIUM:

and it’s MEDIUM Hoodie from anutha Motha! (same two main fabrics….just different placement!

This LARGE BEAUTY that gives me all the Fall Feels:

This X-LARGE seems to be pretty popular….Get it while you can!

and this WILD 2XL

HAPPY BIDDING!!!!

Million Baby Chicks Hoodie

Have you heard me reference the “Million Baby Chicks” Hoodie before?

It’s a design that has evolved into one of my most requested custom orders…but that’s not why I love it so much….

I love it so much because it allows me to mix and match different fabrics and make something completely unique.

I love it SO much because it is a product of multiple different patterns that I have mashed together.

I LOVE IT SO MUCH because it was born out of a custom request from a friend…and now NAMED by another one of my friends!

How fun, right?

It all started by a friend asking if I could make her a hoodie like a certain one she saw online.  I don’t even remember if it was from Pinterest or Facebook.  Either way, I was able to create one fairly similar.

Soon after that, I began getting more and more requests.

The “Million Baby Chicks” name came after I began using Double Brushed Poly for my main fabric choice…. well, I’ll just let my friend’s words speak for themselves:

“Yup! I’m never taking it off!  It feels like I’m wrapped in 1 million baby chicks.  SO SOFT!  If LadyBeez Designs hasn’t brought your dream into a reality, what are you waiting for?  Love it!!! Creative Genius!”

There are just so many options and combos with this hoodie.

I don’t know what I love more:  Designing them out of the scraps I have on hand, mixing and matching from a limited selection  OR  Designing them right along side my customers–letting them choose between different combos I put together virtually for them to see what’s possible.

At any rate, they sure are fun to create!  I will be posting a few Ready to Ship MBC Hoodie’s I made yesterday in my VIP group later this morning.  But, as always, I am open to custom orders!  Let me know if You would like me to design one for you!

St Patrick’s Day in the Shop

Happy SPRING Forward Day! 
I hope you are all surviving on one less hour of sleep!  Not going to apologize for it, though, because I got to shave off ONE HOUR of work…so just remember, it’s allll about perspective 😉

Anywhoodle, it’s Sunday in the Shop here, and that means, I’m taking the time to highlight some of the items I have up for sale.  St. Patrick’s Day is the Holiday ‘O the Month of March….and here is what I have in stock yet:

 

Set of 3 Reusable Snack Bags in St. Patty’s Day prints! 

They are fully lined with PUL fabric (which is what you would find lining washable/reusable cloth diapers).  The closure is Velcro, and to clean, I recommend either hand wash and dry OR flip them inside out and throw them in the wash machine!  

Next up, I have this adorable Size 2T, Upcycled Tshirt Dress

Who can resist that Rainbow and CandyLand Fabric!?!?!

The ever SO popular TRIPLE RUFFLE SKIRT

I have this one ready to ship in a Size 4T, but when I say 4T, it will really fit much longer, since this pattern runs large.  Think size 4-6 girls 🙂

Which little girl is going to get to wearthis Size 4/5 Upcycled Tshirt Dressthis St. Patty’s Day? ……Uuuuummmmm, THE LUCKIEST GIRL IN THE WORLD!

And, who’s got a Little Irish Sweetie that wears a Size 7/8?  Because I’m pretty sure she NEEDS this Upcycled Knit dress!

Last, but most certainly NOT least, I have one moreSt. Patrick’s Day Mixed Fiber Dress in a Size 10/12.  All ready to ship!

 

That’s all I have left for ye Irish folk!  But there are LOTS more listings available if you want to browse the shop at any time!  Scroll UP….click that SHOP button in the menu and have at ‘er!  (I already have a few Easter Goodies listed…)

Next up I’ll be getting New Inventory ready for Easter….Baseball Season….and Spring in general!
