A Beige New World

CPSIA, has a proposed amendment to allow natural cotton/wool etc as long as it's undyed and unbleached in Childrens items.
Oh yay! all the color is gone from Childhood...

The photo above shows my latest experiment in organic cotton, undyed, unbleached and stuffed with undyed, unbleached wool. Oh YAY!
(I think he's kinda scary so I named him "Yokai")

Thanks to CPSIA, Beige is the New Black.

Find out more about this law, and then write your Representatives, Mr.Waxman & Ms. Nord of the CPSC.

If you make, donate, sell or BUY any product for children under 12
or anything that would appeal to a child under 12 this new law
will hurt you.

As it is, It's sorta knocked the creativity out of me.
I don't think I've made more than one plushie SINCE Christmas.

We managed to hit 6th place on to fight this CPSIA,
(even though 90% of my end users are adults and teens, I can't see
my plushies not having to comply for the under 12 market.)
but we have to keep fighting.

Write, and call your Congress Persons....
and, vote this item UP on

it will take 1000 people to get this caught up to the currently Popular issues there. So vote and pass the link along.
