New Product Alert: Burp Cloths

Here is my latest creation-baby burp cloths! These cloths measure approximately 8" x 18" when completed and feature a vibrant cotton print on one side with a Poverty Barn tag while the other side features a solid color terry cloth and an applique of some sorts. In this particular example, I used a zebra to coordinate with the zoo themed fabric. 

I am planning to sell these individually and in sets of 3. This set will use the same cotton fabric, but will feature a zebra, elephant, and giraffe applique on each towel. I can also embroider names next to the appliques. 

The Zebra Zoo Pals burp cloth! 

Check out the Poverty Barn tags that I made using this tutorial.

I am in love with this fabric.

Baby Fashion: Presenting the wipe Case

As promised, Roo's Remnants has been in the process of developing some new products. Now, the first one is ready to reveal! 

Presenting...The Fashionable Wipe Case is here! 

This particular case is boy themed as it is decked out in blues and browns. The above picture shows the top of the case which has alternating blue dot fabric and brown fabric with the word "baby" printed across the fabric. The top of the case is also trimmed with a brown ribbon, a blue fabric yo-yo, and a brown button. The Roo's Remnants logo is in the upper left corner. 

This picture shows more of the detail on the front of the wipe case. It also shows the sides of the case which are trimmed with a blue and brown ribbon. 

The back of this particular wipe case features an adorable puppies on scooters print. 

Each case is reusable and includes 16 Huggies wipes. They are the perfect size for throwing in your diaper bag when you and baby are on the go! 

Please go to Roo's Remnants' Etsy shop to see more details about the Wipe Case. Keep checking the Etsy shop for more patterns coming soon! Custom orders are also available! Check out the fabric swatches at and e-mail your custom order request to Jess

Also, keep checking back here for some more new products coming in the next week. Specifically, I am currently working on something that coordinates perfectly with this Wipe Case!

What's in the works...

Roo's Remnants has been super busy lately. While recently becoming a full-time nurse to my husband after his ACL surgery, I have also been researching craft shows, marketing, and other outlets for selling my products. Additionally, I have also been researching and experimenting with some new products. During this time, I have also been working with Studio Valerie to develop Poverty Barn! Make sure you head over to the Poverty Barn blog, Facebook, and Twitter pages-after you are done reading this post of course!

Several new products will be coming soon to the Roo's Remnants Etsy Shop and main webpage. You might be able to catch a few sneak peeks here in the coming days as well! Here's a tid bit of what you might just see within the next few weeks: purses, checkbook covers, lunch bags, jewelry, and diaper bags. Be excited!

Here's one product that I added to the Etsy shop today: Customized Initial and Polka Dot Wine Glasses. These glasses are available with any letter that you choose and any color combination of dots that you would like. They ship 4 days after order and are hand-wash only. E-mail me here to order yours today or head over to the Etsy shop.

Roo's Remnants has also been working with Studio Valerie to secure some retail space for our products. Products should be available soon in stores in Saint Charles and Cottleville. Hopefully, there will be some other locations added soon as well, but those are still in the works. The actual locations will be publicized soon here on the blog as well as the website and Facebook page when the details are finalized.

Be sure to come out this Saturday, July 16th to the Relay for Life Flea Market and Craft Show at the Wentzville VFW Hall. The show will run from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. and both Roo's Remnants and Studio Valerie will be in attendance.

FYI- If you need something before August 2nd, please order it now! Roo's Remnants will be on vacation from July 28th to August 1st. Orders placed through e-mail or Etsy during this time will be shipped the morning of August 2nd.
