Hi Natalie
I have an idea for a new S4S product. A cosy toes/foot muff (in your S4S fabrics) for use on any pushchair or car seat (therefore must have leg shapes in it, if that makes sense). This would be one for use all year round as the inner (fluffy or fleecy) part would be detatchable meaning it was warm and cosy in the winter but acts as a light blanket/sun cover in the spring/summer. Could even have a detacthable hood for the winter. Would def buy something like this for my new baby especially when you consider that most cosy toes/footmuffs cost at least £50. Thanks! Keira x

Monica 23 November 2009 at 02:10  

Hi Natalie!

I would love to win a Sophie4Sophie Dress!

I think you should make a cool boys top or a different dress, maybe a more wintery dress?

Entering in all ways possible!!!!

Hello Natalie,

What an amazingly generous prize.

So I'll just say me me me me please to everything and follow all your instructions.

Already tweeting with you as surprised zoe!

Karin @ Cafe Bebe 23 November 2009 at 03:18  

Hi Natalie!
Little Miss and I agree with Keira's idea about the cosy toes/footmuff (I think I mentioned that to you AGES ago!) but also would LOVE to see a tabbard/apron or a long-sleeved bib. I still think you need to work with Stokke for Xplory products! They need you to funk up the Xplory. :) I'm a follower of your blog, I follow you on Twitter and have commented here as well as emailed you. Good luck with the comp...and good luck with your hands! ;)

Hi hun, I follow you here and on twitter and have already retweeted I will get a post up next week about this comp.

I do love keira's idead as well.

You could also make matching hats & mittens for the winter possbily with a minky lining or even scarfs that would look so cool.

Or even an adult range! x

New Mummy 23 November 2009 at 04:33  

My comment dispeared!

I follow you on here and twitter. I have retweeted and I will do a post next week.

I think you should make scarfs, mittens and hats with the minky lining they would look so cool!


Keira 23 November 2009 at 06:19  

I have another idea, a range of S4S baby and toddlers hats. Sun hats in S4S fabrics for the summer with either elastic or a velcro'd tab to go under the chin so they can't be pulled off and deer stalkers for winter, furry lined and of course in S4S fabrics. How cool would that be?! Can you tell I want to win?Keira x

zooarchaeologist 23 November 2009 at 10:09  

Hi Natalie
I'm after a funky little ra- ra skirt for Fifi and some supercool polo style t-shirts for toddler boy. If you can work miracles, a rucksac in the shape of a robot/ robot fabric would be great and some pj's which don't have horrble tight elastic waistbands would also be miraculous!
I follow your blog and I tweet with ya... x

Amy 23 November 2009 at 11:19  

hi i'd love to enter please, i follow your blog and on twitter xxx

Juicytots 23 November 2009 at 12:43  

what about some funky blankets? on no wait, we already did that!! I love the newer style puff sleeved dress like the one you made Lily. What about a summer dress with ribbon ties at the shoulders? that would be simple to make and could go from a dress up to a top and be worn with a T-shirt underneath.

Laura C 23 November 2009 at 13:50  

Hi I'd love to enter! I am a new follower and follow on twitter too I'm LauraCYMFT on twitter. I think all the good ideas are already taken! I do like the cosy toes idea but also liked the hats and mittens idea.

Anonymous,  24 November 2009 at 23:09  

Im thinking you could make another reversible dress, in the style of the tatoo dress you made us. It could hvae a ribbon style belt eachside a different fabric.

I aslo love Kieras idea. Also you could make limited edition adult tunic tops.

Or a funky new take on the 80's snood..... :)

Bec 25 November 2009 at 06:18  

Hey lady, so already follow blog twitter and bookface fan, will do blogpost with link...but here are my ideas!!!
Flat caps for boys,
Tail coat for boys for super stylish occassions- I hate having to buy Mo's occassion wear in NEXT!!!
Slim 'jean' type trousers,
Ugly doll type cuddly toys, an alternative to pretty teddies!
A soother saver, like the mam ones that attach soother to clothing?
Cusions for nursery,
skinny 'im in a band' style scarves
small comfort blankets
dribble bibs i.e towelling backed- MO was a terrible dribbler and i hated covering his super cool outfits with crappy bibs!
quirky victorianna inspired girl dresses
funky trackpants, uber cool jersey patterns a bit like the pants you do but maybe a slightly wider leg? would be great for potty training(easy up easy down)
car seat covers
custom stokke/bugaboo hoods/covers
Change bags a bit like a shopper but wide enough handles to go around buggy handles
a range of moses basket bedding
dunagrees? with the s4s stamp ie uber cool
rompers suits
something that hangs over buggy handles with room for mobile/keys /wallet and a cuppa coffee!!!so would need flat base....
j'adore Sophie4Sophie tshirts!!!!!!

oh my gosh i can't stop so many ideas!!!!

mopppy 26 November 2009 at 13:03  

Following on both now and would love to win a s4s dress for the sprog. Will share the link on my fb page and tweet too in a mo.
Im going to give a 50's style pettiskirt a go, I think they look super cute on little ones. How about a new range of reversible somethings with a kimono style front

SprMama 26 November 2009 at 13:24  

Hi, Nat! I already follow you on Twitter and FB. I also read your blog. I am your officially your FIRST (and definitely not the last) US customer. We're huge fans. I can't stop raving about your reversible dress!

Great idea for a competition. Here's an about a Victorian-inspired dress or a reversible breast-feeding cover or a wintry dress?

Kelly 28 November 2009 at 11:40  

I am a follower of the blog and twitter!

More things for boys would be great. Reversible tops? Hoodies? I am not very good at ideas.....need to get more sleep for that!

Would love to see a new baby gift set comprising of funky pointy pixie hats and pixie slippers.

Also a super funky soft rattle or chime ball but in really edgy fabrics.

Am desperate for little boys bow ties or smart occasion type ties with velcro/elastic.

Also think some really funky yet water repellent rain trousers or rain repellent footmuff is in order given the weather recently. Beautiful Boy refuses to have a raincover on the a solution to this would be great...maybe something in oilcloth!!

Hope you all have a merry crimbo.

me. me . me...
I am a follower, tweeter and best buddie (does that get me an extra go??)
I think that what you are making is totally ace.
Your clothes are perfectly made and sized to a tee.
You have amazing children who reflect all of the qualities that you think you are lacking as a mum (you are not).
You are an inspiration to me - and to my kids. They love you as much as I do.
My life is a happier, richer one with you in it (even if you are totally flaky and a bit of a freak....)

Geriatric Mummy 4 December 2009 at 13:50  

I think bec has covered just about every option but for what it's worth I would like more boy stuff, particularly warm tops, very smart outfits ie for weddings, parties etc, and some really nice, comfy, snuggly PJs.

I'm now with you...follower, fan, tweet...

mopppy 7 December 2009 at 03:08  

Just noticed my comment had disappeared too :o(
Im a follower, fan and tweet too. I thought that a reversible kimono style top would look cool, loving the lady above's ideas about funky pixie gear and agree there should be more for boys

Soph4Soph 7 December 2009 at 09:03  

Sorry for all the missing Comments, there is a problem with Blogger, I still have all original emails from when comments where posted, so fear not!!
