Magic Cordial and Magic Jelly

These are our favorite treats at the moment

Magic Cordial

1 cup of Castor Sugar
1 tsp Citric Acid

Mix together in an air tight container and shake really well. Then pop a tsp (or to taste) in a glass of water and stir until dissolved.
Instant lemon coridal without preservative or colours = a happy house - the kids think its fantastic - maybe I deprive them - LOL

Magic Jelly

1 cup of Castor Sugar
1 tsp of Citric Acid
1 cup of Warm water

mix together until dissolved, add 600ml of cold water

Dissolve 6-8 tsp of gelatine in 1 cup of boiling water, then add to the sugar/water/citric acid mix and pop in the fridge, we usually pop some colour in now though. The pink or yellow natural food colours are great, the blue and green are a little muddy :(

It takes about 6 hours to really set properly. This makes just over a litre of jelly but it never lasts long here - LOL

Hope you are having a great week

New website

Jill and I are working on a new website, so that will be coming soon :)

Thursday, June 11, 2009


So I think I won the award for the slackest blogger ever LOL.

So I thought I'd post a few picks of some of the secret stuff we have been working on for the last few months SHHHHHH don't tell Jill I told you LOL - ;)

So this fabric is on a boat next week and should be here in about a month - probably in time for me to make another blog post - ROFL

It will be available, in nappy cuts, per metre, and wholesale per m and per 10m.

Also due in early July is Bamboo Fleece, we decided on 70% Bamboo 30% Organic Cotton 430gsm fleece, we chose the 70/30 composition as in our experience the slightly higher cotton component makes for a stronger, longer lasting fabric, without significantly affecting the absorption. This will be available in 1/2m, and 10m quantities for retail and 1m and 10m rolls wholesale.

I need to take some photo's tomorrow to show you what we've been up to this last month, but things that come to mind are a new one sized nappy pattern, new FOE prints and plain, chalkboard cloth, silk noil, new microfleece.

Hmm whats on the way, more Poly PUL.

The Benartex minkee seconds are still available, if you;d like a sample let me know and I'll post it out to you.
