The New Look Of Gently Made

Our new logo is finished! After our computer died, taking all of our files and pictures with it (I know, I know. We should have backed it up!) it was either try to recreate the old logo or give Gently Made a facelift. I voted facelift and started drawing. After many drafts, fights with Artrage, and lots of help from hubby… tada! The new look of Gently Made!


Nursing Shirts– Soon to Come!

I have been working on a new design for a cowl neck nursing shirt made from recycled T Shirts. As a new momma I HATED that I spent months in ugly maternity clothes only to have my little guy and spend more months in ugly nursing clothes!

So I ditched the nursing shirts and opted for my own comfy, cuter, pre pregnancy clothes and avoided nursing in public at all costs for fear of showing my belly. Ugh! There must be a better way!

After a very successful test run and a fruitful trip to the Salvation Army, I am all ready to begin constructing my nursing shirts, which will be hardly recognizable as such! I will post them as soon as I am finished so stay tuned.

About Gently Made

Gently Made specializes in recycled wool diaper covers and longies for babies and toddlers. All of our covers and longies are made from recycled wool, making them the environmentally friendly choice for your little one.

Though they were originally designed to fit over a pinned prefold or fitted diaper, our covers are also great over a disposable diaper for heavy nighttime wetters, and make cute “bloomers” under little dresses. The toddler size covers are perfect for a potty trainer. Just slip them on over big kid undies and they keep any accidents discreet.

Gently Made also offers a line of hand knit hats for babies and toddlers in a variety of sizes and colors. If you see a style you like but it is not the right size, let us know! Custom orders are welcome.

Contact us at to order.
