Twilli Pie shifts focus

January 14th, 2010 by reneeholiday

We hope you are having a wonderful new year. We know we are! This past year was full of change. And this year is STILL full of transitions. But we are settling into a groove that seems to be more balanced.

Part of the craziness in 2009 involved some business logistics. We have been reevaluating the viability of doing business in the complicated realm of baby products. There are many obstacles on that path, so we have been exploring alternatives.

One idea that we are developing is to continue with the signature Twilli Pie style, and tradition of upcycling, but instead of creating baby carriers, doing messenger bags. We know that many of our friends, clients, and future friends are upward mobile and work as such. So keep your eyes peeled for what we are loving referring to as, “Twilli Pie MOBILE”. πŸ˜‰

We will keep you posted.

Introducing the TWILLI PIE WRAP Podegi

August 18th, 2009 by reneeholiday

TP Wrap Pod - detail

We have been working on the ultimate in babywearing yumminess… a TP pod wrap conversion! We start with a beautiful woven wrap. Then we design a one-of-a-kind signature Twilli Pie podegi blanket/body. Then we blend the two!

So you get all of the comfort, support, and weight distribution of a wrap, but without the steep learning curve! (Let’s admit, there are plenty of us whose kiddos will NOT cooperate long enough for us to learn to wrap properly! :blush:)

Pod-wrapping a tired toddler

We know there are so many babywearing families who are CRAZY about wrap conversions. So we wanted to offer something special to you! We don’t know of anyone else who is combining a pieced fabric body with wrap straps. (Most wrap pods we’ve seen are made SOLELY from the wrap material.)

We are taking a limited number of custom orders for TP WPs now, at a special introductory price. Please contact us directly to reserve your wrap conversion slot.

TP Wrap pod is Twilli-approved

We haven’t fallen off the Earth…

June 17th, 2009 by reneeholiday

However, we have been going through some “life retooling” which required a prolonged pause in Twilli Pie operations. But it’s all good. πŸ™‚ We were so eager to get off to a great start, that we ended up glazing over some foundation steps. Therefore, it’s time to go back and fill in the gaps the RIGHT way.

iphone-backcarry0209We have also switched up our e-communication methods to more mobile means, namely iPhone. ;-P

The relocation from Florida to Tennessee has taken some unexpected, yet pleasant turns. We have been diversifying our business efforts and become very involved in a local non-profit group for entrepreneurs, telecommuters and self-employed people.

We have also been working on development of the TWILLI PIE WRAP POD. We are almost ready to start production of these. We are updating our Etsy store as well.

Thank you for your patience!

Stay tuned to us on Twitter (@TwilliPie).

TWILLI PIE hits the stores!

February 13th, 2009 by reneeholiday
we are proud to sell TWILLI PIE PODEGI baby carriers at NKM!

we are proud to sell TWILLI PIE PODEGI baby carriers at NKM!

TWILLI PIE PODEGI baby carriers make their debut at a wonderful local store, NATURE KIDS MERCANTILE. (NKM is also our gracious host for our new KNOXVILLE BABYWEARING meeting!)

When I launched Twilli Pie Design, I never really gave much thought to having a presence in stores. I figured the internet is ubiquitous enough, and worldwide. But I have to say, it sure feels good to have our PODEGI BABY CARRIERS in the store, where people can pick them up, touch the fabric, and get a FEEL for them.

When we approached Nature Kids Mercantile about hosting our new Knoxville Babywearing meetings, we fell in love with the store. There are so many beautiful, handmade items there. We knew Twilli Pie would be right at home.

If you are in the greater Knoxville, TN area, check out the store and LEAVE A COMMENT. πŸ™‚ Oh, and tell them TWILLI PIE SENT YOU!

We are so excited!

Sale is concluded

January 19th, 2009 by reneeholiday

Yup. We have sold out of all in-stock pods! Thanks to all of the lovely mamas who are now enjoying their new Twilli Pie podegis! πŸ™‚

The timing is nice because it also marks the end of an 8 year political era that officially comes to a close today. We are also experiencing our first snow, since we left the land of sunshine. (It’s Twilli’s 1st SNOW EVER!) We are meeting other cool local babywearers! We are excited about the new things on the horizon.

Did you miss out? Fear not. We are working on more pods and will be stocking 2-3 by end of the week.

We have been planning the new Twilli Pie designs. Stay tuned for more information on the new pods we will be stocking in the next couple of weeks.

LAST CHANCE to order before Christmas!

December 19th, 2008 by reneeholiday

OK. Moving day is breathing down my neck. Tomorrow we pack the UHaul trailer (MUCH CHEAPER than renting a truck btw…). Sunday morning we drive away from this warm, lovely, maddening place we’ve called “home” for 7 years.

:deep breath:

So if you want to get a fabulous pod for an even more fabulous price, TODAY IS THE DAY! (After that they will be buried in the trailer and possibly given away as gifts to some lovely mamas.)

Please email me at to get a great deal on your podegi today!

About Twilli Pie Design

TWILLI PIE DESIGN prides itself in creating what we refer to as "wearable art" in each of the OOAK (one of a kind) podegi baby carriers.

We use mostly vintage/reclaimed fabrics in the blanket (body) of the pods. The straps are made of all new materials, and always made of sturdy, bottom-weight fabrics.

Our line of narrow blanket PODEAGI baby carriers features a flared blanket, to accommodate your child's growing legs and your comfort. The straps are double padded where it counts, single padded another couple of feet, and unpadded where the tying happens. (This makes for easier trying/untying as well as a more secure knot.)

We welcome any questions and are also willing to work with you for a semi-custom design. So if you have an old piece of clothing that you haven't been able to part with, but are no longer wearing, touch base. We can probably breathe new life into it! :-)
