Fleece pockets....any interest??

I am thinking about opening back up. I had a WAHM thread back in 2008-2009 where I sold my fleece pockets (for nighttime and heavy wetters) and Longies/Shorties and I am in a position now to open back up.
Just not sure if there is still an interest in them

Here is some of the work I did then, (Please note these items are not available they are just examples of what I did back in 08-09 on DS) what do you think, any interest out there???















Thank you for any imput and advice

Re: Fleece pockets....any interest??

We loved fleece pockets when DD was a nb; now we have more pockets than we need & I'd have a hard time selling them to DCP (she's only in pockets at DC)...we are just starting to do fleece covers a little, though.

I think decent marketing & some well-placed reviews could do a lot of the work for you, though...I see drybees & other fleece pockets come up as suggestions in the Q&A section for night diapering & summer diapering occasionally...taking advantage of that might help you.

I didn't see that in Q&A so that is good to know
I do have reviews under the feedback section so if I do decide to open back up I can copy the links over (I think)
I did very well back in 08-09 but it was long enough ago that I don't know what's hot and what's not or if DS mamas will remember buying from me previously to offer reviews/feedback

I have a snap-eez fleece pocket that a mama gifted to me and its my fav. pocket. I don't know where else to get one and would love to test for you...My only suggestion, and it may be different than others needs, but I would love to find one that has fewer inches in between the legs...I don't know how to say it, but more of a realistic, underwear-ish cut...

Very cool! I did them custom where customers could pick inners/outers from the fabrics I had available and I think having a choice between regular or undie-cut would be a great idea. Thank you

I would definitely be interested. I've never tried fleece but love the feel of it and think my LO would too.

Your work looks great! They look a little trimmer than other fleece dipes I've seen. I tried a few a while back and didn't love it because they were so bulky, but if you could make ones that are trimmer fitting I would totally try fleece again.

I had a small fleece pocket with snaps and DH and I both it! It kinda reminded us of a TMNT cause it was the same green with a yellow fleece inner. I wish I hadnt sold it, now that we are expecting #3 !

Your stuff is cute, Id prolly be tempted enough to get a couple if they had snaps...
