To try and augment family finances right now, I am renting booths at craft fairs to sell the jewellery, clay figures and Christmas ornaments I am making, but to carry the income forward, I am also showcasing the custom special needs fabric goods I make. These are the things I am making right now, do you have any ideas of things that I could add?

Wheelchair blankets
Wheelchair foot muffs
Wheelchair capes and ponchos
Wheel "slippers" to cover the wheels when you are inside, so you don't track a mess around
Tubing wraps and covers
Custom incontinence pads
Weighted vests, blankets, wraps and toys
"Fidget" toys

Can you think of anything else I should add to the "pile"? I will have one sample of each of these customized to one of Bee's wheelchairs at each show, but will be taking orders.

Thanks in advance smile

specialist sleepsuit (to stop dc getting into nappy), currently avail online from a certain company at approx £35 plus postage. unsure how much would take to make however i feel it quite pricey for this sleepsuit, though necessary in my ds case smile

Along the same line as shazian - sleep suits and tops with sewn in mittens for children with eczema (to stop scratching). Material needs to be soft cotton and seams need to be on outside to stop them rubbing. Good luck with new venture.
How are things with the vision loss by the way -not sure if you've had any more news since saw doctor earlier in the week? hope things have improved.

Poloshirts for school with no popper fastening instead of buttons!

More trousers with no buttons and inside adjusters with no buttons!

Can you tell dd is button phobic?!

bibs scarf/bandana style so suitable for older children?

Fleece linings for coats in hoodie style for those that dont like the feel of a new coat but ok with usual fleece line in including hood but detachable for other coats.

Fleece liners for shoes for kids who hate the feel of new shoes and the shoe seems etc. Same fleece feeling may help. It did with ds and a pair of chunky socks smile

Good luck hope it all goes well you have a great list already!

Mr tumble's spotty bag! Not sure if it's relevant but they're live hen's teeth. I may have to make one!
