How it all started…
Hello there! I am Louise Jones, the WAHM (work at home mom) behind the Boegoe Bugz range. We are a home-school family with four girls.
In 2011 I started “Die Hekel Hoekie”. I mostly made crochet bootees and hats. Later on I added customized handbags and scarves. As the years followed (and the children!) I also taught myself the skill of sewing.
In 2016 I was introduced to the world of cloth nappies. It was love at first sight! After purchasing a few nappies I just had to try my hand at making these. (And bought many more after that!!!)
Since I love crochet so much, I designed “The Boegoe Bugz crochet soaker pattern” made with 100% Merino wool. The pattern can be purchased at my online shop in pdf format.
My husband and I fell pregnant with our fourth in 2017. With my love for sewing and my new love for cloth nappies I just knew I wanted to bring these two together. I made our new bundle of joy a newborn stash. Bernina at that point also hosted a charity competition in which the contestants had to design and make adult diapers. I entered the contest and to my surprise, received 2nd place!
