About

I’m Aimee, owner and creator at Angel Bean and coming soon Sweet Sofia Designs in Greece. I was a middle school teacher from New York, but moved to the island of Crete after meeting my husband here. We now have 3 wonderful children and I am a stay at home mom.

The inspiration for my shop came from my two boys, Angelo and Dino (but we call him Bean). They are the reason I dusted off my sewing machine in an attempt to make some cloth diapers. My middle son has really sensitive skin and disposable diapers are really irritating for him, so I took the plunge into cloth and never looked back. After having my last baby, I just knew I would use cloth with him and wanted to try to make them myself. I received so many compliments from friends and family and they encouraged me to start a business sewing diapers. And of course it helps that my husband is really supportive of using cloth…

The inspiration for my shop came from my two boys, Angelo and Dino (but we call him Bean). They are the reason I dusted off my sewing machine in an attempt to make some cloth diapers. My middle son has really sensitive skin and disposable diapers are really irritating for him, so I took the plunge into cloth and never looked back.

I received so many compliments from friends and family and they encouraged me to start a business sewing diapers. And of course it helps that my husband is really supportive of using cloth with our boys (and he even changes diapers!). Now you are probably wondering why my other child is not included in that name, well Sofia is the heart in the middle. She is my oldest and my one and only girl and never stops making me laugh.

I know my kids won’t be wearing diapers forever, and not everyone has the same love for cloth as I do, so I am expanding my sewing skills a bit. I am opening a shop called Sweet Sofia Designs that will carry handmade toddler dresses designed and sewn by me. Sofia is especially happy about this since she gets to wear all the practice dresses and dance around like a princess.

I hope in the future to be able to add more handmade things to my shop, so keep checking back.
