New Additions

new fabric - yesterday I bought my first overlocker (yah!) and picked up some lovely cotton fabrics that were on sale. i love the green aqua white grey stripe but think the palms will make a nice summery overall.

the blue fabrics to the right are some shirts i have picked up along the way. will convert these to overalls and am thinking of doing some boys two piece sets for summer. should everything remain reversible though . . . ?
Well I have finally FINALLY finished off two FULLY reversible overalls.

brown check / animal print - this incorporates my husbands old country road brown checked shirt. Lovely italian cotton. I have doubled it up with a fun animal print, with some coloured button detailing.

little boy blue - is 100% cotton and incorporates a recycled white & blue striped shirt and chambray blue poplin. It is fully reversible with large blue buttons and a front pocket.

feeling inspired

This morning I towed mum and Samuel along to the mathilda's market in Perth as one of my goal's is to have a stall at the next mathilda market in Perth. Check them out :


It was inspirational to see so many creative mother's out there who are giving it a shot. There was not alot of baby boys clothes as well, which is encouraging.

Am working on a woven label but after a rough night with Samuel, am needing sleep greatly.

teemoo designs

I created this blog to capture the creation of a new business and how it evolves, grows and flourishes!

teemoo designs hopes to create one-off pieces of clothing for funky little boys featuring recycled 100% cotton shirts. I can see this idea growing into little girls clothing but am feeling quite inspired by our little man Samuel who is nearly 10 months old now.

the first teemoo design are pure cotton reversible overalls in " recycled brown check / animal print". buttons are yet to be added

as you can see, i am currently in the "design and creation" phase of teemoo designs and hope to have more for you soon
