My mind had quite a bit of time to wander today as I was dutifully knitting and a few funny thoughts occured to me.
For the sake of space, and to spare your time, I'll share just one:

If DamestarBaby was a soapbox derby, I would totally be the one at the top of the hill who just took the running start and pushed the brakeless car down the hill. And Amy would be the one in the car with a helmet on.

insect inspiration

Loma Jane: hunting for bugs in Santa Rosa, CA
No doubt Loma was inspired by the beautiful painting on her shirt, and here she is, hoping to find as pretty a beetle in real life. Keep trying, baby, they're there. Okay, maybe not quite as cool as ours, but the real ones tickle.

DamestarBaby Legs!!

It's a slippery slope, this children's clothing design thing. You start with printed shirts, then you start sewing shirts, and sewing more shirts, and pretty soon you start to feel bad for the other parts of the kid body. What about the legs and the heads? Don't they deserve DamestarBaby, too?
Yes, yes they do. And how.
Well, the sewing machines have been humming away, and we've finally come up with a garment worthy of our name.

Drum roll please....

We proudly introduce our Ticking Stripe Pants! (Thank you, Scarlett, you can sit down now.)

Like everything we make, they're built to last. And they coordinate with all of our shirts, as shown. Best of all, they're available now in our Etsy shop!

Stay tuned for the hats!!
