Auriels are a side snap nappy and were originally designed to fit my chubby thighed, small waisted, tummy sleeping cherub. The boosting is adjustable to suit any bub and is particularly useful for those tummy/front wetting bubbas.
Auriels are available in All in One/Two and Pocket, in Fleece or Minky, Fitteds, Night Nappies and PUL outers. They are currently available in three sizes, 0, 1 & 2, with Size 3 coming soon.
What are Auriel's Made of?
Concealed soaker pad of 2 layers of BKT or bamboo/cotton and a snap in booster of 1 layer of microfleece, 1 layer of bamboo/cotton and an additional 2 layer bamboo/cotton fold over booster, and a short 2 layer bamboo/cotton booster, makes for 10 plus layers of absorbency, whilst allowing for faster drying time.
For natural inners, velour replaces the microfleece.
For Cotton outer AI2, an additional full shaped bamboo/cotton booster is added.
Please go from measurements before weight when purchasing Cherub's Kiss Auriels are made with an outer of super soft water repellent fleece outer from Malden Mills, PUL or Minkee and a plush inner of flannel, knit, sherpa or velour. The internal soaker is hemp terry, BKT or bamboo attached to a full layer of double napped flannel, and it comes with a snap in Booster in configurations dependant on absorbancy required. The Auriel closes with Snaps, including the CK branded snap, your guarantee of quality, and the Size Snap which indicates the size of the nappy.
Cherub's Kiss Loyalty Program
How does it work?
We (manually) keep track of your total orders, from July 1st, 2012, and when you have purchased $300 worth of our products (not counting postage) you get a 10% voucher for you to use. When you have purchased $600 you get another one, etc. You choose when you would like to use them.
How do I register?
Registration is not necessary. Everyone that buys from us from July 1st is enrolled in the program.
Can I earn a 2nd voucher if I haven't used the first?
Yes you can, though you can only use 1 voucher on any order.
Do orders through Gossamer Dreams, other online stores or real life markets count?
The short answer is, probably. Collaborations with other businesses won't count, but most other purchases should.
Can this be used in conjunction with other specials, say a Nappy Hunt discount?
Nice try, but no, this discount can not be used in conjunction with any other offer.
Customs and Semi Customs
Can I get a full Custom Order
We are currently closed to full custom orders.
How does a Semi-Custom Work
Semi-customs - are just that a custom to the degree that you can choose, the size, the type etc. But limited to fabrics that I have available in stock. I do not send out photos of all my fabrics as I have a remarkably large stashm, which changes constantly. I do not tend to buy large quantities of any print fabric. I like making limited run of nappies. Some fabrics have only been purchased in fat quarters.
We will always try to meet your needs, however we do reserve the right to refuse to do a semi-custom that we think are not in keeping with the Cherub's Kiss ideals.
You are more than welcome to provide your own fabric, but again we reserve the right not to use it, should when it arrive be unsuitable. If you provide your own fabric it must be prewashed and ready to use. Please note that no variation in price will occur should you provide your own fabric.
Semi-customs take alot longer to discuss and organise and therefore price maybe slightly above prices quoted for standard nappies.
You can peruse the following sites to look for fabrics to choose in your semi-custom.
Please send us a link to the fabric of choice rather than rely on our memory to know what you are referring to.
Please note some older fabrics are no longer available. To that end please make a couple of choices in your selection. Whilst we do try to make your dreams come true in a semi-custom slot, it's not always possible.
What fabrics do you use?
Here at Cherub's Kiss we only use top quality fabrics. All our fabrics are prewashed, with the exception of 100% synthetic materials. We are a smoke free home, however we do have kitties, please be aware of this when purchasing if you have cat allergies. Our fabrics are kept away from the kitties, but this is no guarantee of no kitty hair on your parcel
Our Bamboo fleece is beautiful. It consists of 70% bamboo/30% Organic Cotton. It is a natural unbleached colour and is professional laundered to prevent any shrinkage from occurring.
Malden Mills fleece - we use only Windpro and 300wt DWR - This is the best quality fleece around. Known for it's breathable yet water resistant properties, there are several types of windpro available, but all have the same qualities.
More information on Malden Mills fleece can be found here
Minky - We use quality minky from Shannons or Kaufmann branded minky.
PUL - We use fabrite 1ml PUL
Flannel for concealed layers - double napped and white.
Microfleece - a variety of brands maybe used including Malden Mills and Baum. But be assured all our microfleece is of consistent good quality and will look great wash after wash.
Cotton prints - generally all 100% cotton. They are cute, funky and adorable sometimes all at the same time.
Bamboo velour - beautifully soft and snuggly.
Cotton velours - again top quality poly/cotton mix for durability in a range of fabulous colours.
What types are available?

Do you Layby
We do lay-by under the following conditions. Please email to discuss your layby BEFORE purchasing.
We only work on one Layby at a time, so if someone else already has one, you cannot have one.
Layby is only available for orders over $300. A deposit of 20% is required at the time of purchase and weekly payments are required.
No full customs will be entertained for a layby, so it must be made with fabrics that I have on hand. Dyed nappies can be requested, but these will be from stock dyes, and not made to order.
You are required to please email through a transaction receipt each time a payment is made.
Layby term is 8 weeks and failure to comply with these layby terms may result in the loss of your deposit and the layby being cancelled.
Your order will not be started until your last payment has been received and your lay-by is paid in full.
Consistent non payers will have their orders automatically cancelled, therefore please make sure you pay as per our terms and conditions.
How much is postage?
Postage will vary depending on the number of nappies you purchase. Up to 2 nappies for $7.50. 3 or more nappies are $11.55 (except in Queensland where it will be cheaper). We will always try to post in the most economical fashion, though all parcels are sent trackable with insurance.
We charge actual weight/cost plus a .30 package and handling fee which covers the cost of the bags, etc.
Postage is free for all orders over $200. This does not apply to combined purchases bought over several days.
Can I pick up my order?
No, I'm sorry pick up is no longer available. Our insurers no longer allow pickup.
What days do you post?
We post parcels Monday to Friday. If your payment comes through over the weekend, your order will be posted Monday.
How do I know if my order has been posted?
We update the account details as orders are paid and sent, so please log into account services to check.
You should also receive an email from us saying your nappy has been posted, however in times of high traffic, this may not always happen.
If you would like to combine purchases please email Angel immediately on purchase. Combined invoices will only be sent if requested. Should you not wait for the amended invoice before making payment no combined postage amounts will apply.
What size do I need?
Sizing depends entirely on your bub's shape, measurements are generally a much more accurate way of determining size than weight. And we recommend going with measurements before weight when choosing your size.
If you have queries about what size to choose, please don't hesitate to contact us, so we can recommend the appropriate size.
Please note all measurements are taken UNSTRETCHED
Size 0 - to fit 3.5 - 9 kg, Rise 37 cm, Thigh 19 - 27 cm, Waist 34 - 48 cm
Size 1 - to fit - 4.5 - 10.5kg - Rise42cm, Thigh 22 - 28cm, Waist 38cm - 49cm
Size 2 to fit 8.5 - 16.5 kg, rise 47 cm, Thigh 28 - 39 cm, Waist 44 - 57 cm
Size 3 to fit from 11kg, rise 51cm, Thigh 29 - 37 cm, Waist 44 - 58 cm
Again please go with measurements before weight. HoneyBoy! Nappies are very generous in their sizing. Most people will never need a large. Generally either a medium or medium/long will see your bub through to Toilet Training.
Newborn to fit - 2.7 - 5.5kg, Rise 33cm, Waist 27 - 35cm Small to fit - 3.6 - 7.2kg - Rise 37cm, Waist 30 - 38cm Medium to fit 6 - 11.5kg, Rise 46cm, Waist 41 - 53 cm Medium Long to fit 8 - 14kg - Rise 51cm, Waist 41 - 53cm Large to fit - 9 - 16kg, Rise 51cm, Waist 48 - 63cm X-Large to fit - 13.5kg plus, Rise 53cm - Waist 53-68cm
These are only sold in Newborn Size in a pack of 3. They are designed to fit 2.75 to 5.5kg but are mostly hand dyed velour so may stretch to fit your bub for longer.
Are your snaps hidden?
Snaps are now hidden on the majority of our nappies, with the exception of the Malden Mills Fleece Outer nappies. Please note our size snap is the last snap on the wing, and this one is not hidden.
Fleece nappies require a wider top-stitch to look aethesically pleasing and this is unable to be done on hidden snap nappies.
However you will find that the shape of the shaped booster, helps prevent marks on bubs skin.
If you specifically require hidden snaps, please let us know, so we can let you know if the style you require has hidden snaps.
When do you stock?
Stockings can happen in various ways.
Randomly - no prior advertisements of stockings. Random is just that.
Set - Set stockings - a time is advertised either via my newsletter or blog.
How does a stocking work?
Make sure you are logged into Congo Cart. If you have purchased from ANY Congo Cart your log in is exactly the same. Have the item you are wishing to purchase on your screen and refresh as required, until the item says Buy Now.
Please note our cart is set to first to check out. This means that the nappy is not yours until you have paid for it and someone else can buy it even though you have it in you cart.
Should Congo Cart oversell, the item for sale, will go to the first order registered through the shopping cart. I am not always able to remake an item. I can if I choose offer to make another item similar to that listed, but this is not guaranteed.
For facebook sales, they go to the first person that I can see that has commented.

What we Make
All cloth nappies are hand made on site.
All items are hand cut, hand snapped and made with love, individually just for you.
All appliques are hand drawn, often to match a specific fabric or request. These appliques are hand steered by machine for a sturdy attachment.
All embroidery is done by hand by Lesley (the exception to this is our Heaven Sent nappies, which are machine embroidered to our specifications by the lovely Chris from Baby Bullfrogs)
On occasion other machine embroideries may appear, but these will be clearly noted. Please note we do not have an embroidery machine.
Dyeing is generally done in house as well, again it will be noted in the listing if it's been dyed by another WAHM. Please note that whilst we will try very hard to meet your requests when dyeing it is not an exact art, and variations may occur.
All work is done by either Shane or myself, with help in busy times from family and friends.
Our clothing is also made in house. We make a variety of items, please email should you require something special.
We make a large range of clothing, including embroidered singlets, shorts, pants, tees, dresses and smocked garments.
You can expect the same attention of detail from our clothing as you've come to expect from our Cloth Nappies. Lesley has been producing garments for sale mostly in the smocked/heirloom category for the past 18 years.
Should you require a special garment, please email us for more details. Please note smocked garments generally require at least a 6 week lead time.
Items that are brought in from another WAHM will, as always, be noted on the listing.
