Avery - OOAK HB Restyle with Wings. For Heartfelt in honour of Avery and Kristie.

This OOAK Half Buckle with Wing straps has been made in honour of Avery, and his beautiful mother Kristie. Kristie designed this colourway (made by Girasol), and Tinoki had them made. Brie from Tinoki donated the wrap, and I my time to create this special carrier. All proceeds are going to Heartfelt.

Kristie shares some words with us -

Avery Fox Charles Tatton was born July 14 2011, silently and still. In the immediate aftermath of his death, Heartfelt were called to take photos of the family so we would forever have memories of his brief time with us. These have proven to be the most special and treasured pieces in our family.

This photo is such a blessing to this mama's heart

The Avery Wrap by Girasol was designed in Avery's memory by me in the short time after his death. One of the things I longed so much to do was carry him close in a woven wrap and kiss the top of his head.

I hope you will love to carry your babe in this Avery thanks to Beetlebums and <<Tinoki>>. 
You will also find Averys story on my blog, <<Hesperas Garden>>.

The proceeds will help Heartfelt give more families memories to last a lifetime.


I feel so blessed to be able to give what I can, and I would love to take the time to thank my friend Brie from Tinoki for kindly donating this special wrap.  I am always in awe of the strength and resilience that Kristie has exhibited.  What an amazing woman, and what an inspiration.

Bidding will start on Avery on Sunday night, 5th Feb at 8.30pm.  It will end on the following Wednesday night.  Please if you would like to donate an amount, any at all, contact Heartfelt - they would love to hear from you.

Big love.

Safety First - ALWAYS

I would like to take a moment of your time and direct you to the Tinoki blog.  Brie has written a fantastic post about carrier safety and what you need to know to ensure the carrier/s that you use are safe.

She made an awesome point - 'Babywearing is safe however not all baby carriers are'.  How very apt that statement is.

So please, click here on Tinoki and absorb her wise words, your precious baby is worth the extra minute it takes to check over your baby carrier/s.

Also, if you haven't visited and joined Kanga Collective - what are you waiting for?  The mystery prize will be drawn in literally days, and there is lots of action and chatter.  It is Australia's new Baby Wearing Forum, along with a fantastic Wiki and blog.  Speaking of which, if you have a great article that you would like to submit to either the Wiki or the Blog then please join up and submit!

Big, safe love!
