Testing Part 1 – Slots are full

August 5th, 2008 by reneeholiday

Thank you to everyone who has responded! We are excited to have filled the slots for the first round of testing. We are already getting some excellent feedback, and taking some suggestions into consideration for a second round of testing.

One of the main things that has come up so far is how narrow the body/blanket is. We have decided that in order to work for a wider size/age range of babies, we will widen the body significantly. Stay tuned for more info.

Stay tuned for some photos of some of the completed testers.

Sharing the Love…

July 28th, 2008 by reneeholiday

I realize that there are SOOOOO many wonderful carriers out there. I would be delusional if I thought Twilli Pie was IT!! lol So I’m giving you guys a chance to win a whole BABYWEARING STASH from Along For The Ride!

I love ALL of the carriers that are mentioned in this contest. And I’d love to be able to bring this stash to my local babywearing meetings to let other people try some of the “classics”. (Most of my stash is diy. And I have never owned a pouch.) I love my BabyHawk, which I loaned out to someone local and lost her number. πŸ™ D’oh! And also I met the creators of Zolowear and Gypsy Mama at the Babywearing Conference in Chicago. These ladies rock!!!

Just click the link below. You get only one entry. But you can get a second one if you post a link on your blog/website. :-) Good luck! (Of course, I’m crossing my fingers that *I* win! But you guys at least deserve a chance! hehehe)

Win the Essential Babywearing Stash from Along for the Ride (one Beco Butterfly, one Hotsling baby pouch, one BabyHawk Mei Tai, one Zolowear Ring Sling, and one Gypsy Mama Wrap)

Twilli Pie Testing is underway

July 24th, 2008 by reneeholiday

We have had a tremendous response of people wanting to be testers for the Twilli Pie podegi. I think people are really curious about Asian Baby Carriers, and podegis in particular. There aren’t a tremendous number of pods out there though. So I’m happy to be providing something “new” AND cool. πŸ˜‰

We just dropped off our 1st local tester podegi to a sweet mama from one our local parenting Meetup groups yesterday. Here are some photos of SUMMER SLUSHIE at its new home.

And I just finished NUTMEG this morning and I am about to finish TROPICAL DELIGHT. I will post photos of those soon.

Get ’em while they’re hot!

July 14th, 2008 by reneeholiday

Because the testers are already going fast! I have a total of 10 tester slots available. 2 have already been taken (TP 5 – aka “cinnamon” andΒ  TP3 – aka “water for chocolate”, for those keeping track), 3 more promised. So if my public school education serves me correctly, that leaves exactly 5 more left!

By the way, the standard pricing for the Twilli Pie Podegi will be $105. The price for tester podegis is deeply discounted. (It’s not enough for them to be beautiful, hip and comfy… I DO actually request some substantial feedback in return for the massive discount and bragging rights of having one of the THE FIRST Twilli Pies!) πŸ˜‰

Please contact me by leaving a comment to get more details and to make your reservation.

Twilli Pie PODEGI – Take a look at the 1st batch of designs

July 7th, 2008 by reneeholiday

We have created the first batch of Twilli Pie PODEGI baby carriers. The podegis were well received at the Babywearing Conference in Chicago, that we attended last week.

Everyone really seemed to like the fabrics and colors. Many people were also curious since they’d never tried a podegi before. A lot of people assumed it was a mei tai. I was explaining that I find a pod much easier to get into and out of. And back carries are much quicker to setup with a podegi as well. We hope to spread the podegi love!

Now I would like to introduce the podegis in the first “official” batch. (These will serve as testers to the public.)

TWILLI PIE PODEGI – 4 (note: this pod has short straps… best for quick ups/downs)

TWILLI PIE PODEGI – 5 “Cinnamon” — SOLD

TWILLI PIE PODEGI – 6 – “FRESCA” — SOLD

TWILLI PIE PODEGI – 7 – “SALSA VERDE” (Action shots to come)

Please LEAVE A COMMENT and let us know what you think so far! Also, if you are interested in being a tester, we still have a few slots available. Please contact us for more information.

Introducing the TWILLI PIE PODEGI

June 24th, 2008 by reneeholiday

We are pleased to announce the new line of modern podegi baby carriers, by TWILLI PIE DESIGN. We have been hard at work for the last several months designing and refining our unique style. We are committed to safety, comfort, wearability and style. We value the security, closeness, and convenience that babywearing provides and we hope to spread the babywearing love to other parents worldwide.

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! :-)
