Welcome to Sassydoodle Baby.

I create, hand craft and sell baby toys and baby accessories and shabby cottage chic accessories for women and their homes.

I decided to make a simple baby toy about 6 months ago and started to sell them on Ebay at Christmas. I sold hundreds of them, and was amazed how well they did. Then I opened up my Etsy store, and have expended my line from baby toys to clothing and other accessories. I just can't find enough hours in the week to make everything I want to. I have an inspirational board above my desk where I pin ideas. Someday I will get to them all.

I get a total rush when someone buys from my shop. I use to question my self, is it good enough, will someone like it, etc. Now I just go with my gut. If I make it, they will come buy it!!…

Born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area of California, I grew up in a family of 4 girls in the 60's and 70's. Sewing was a must. If you must have a new out fit, you must be able to sew it. Patterns were .50 cents, fabric, .25 cents a yard sometimes. I had a closet full of clothes, because I made most of them. I have always been creative, with a love of home decorating, I once stenciled most of the walls in my house in 1 day, I went a little crazy. I've knitted, crocheted, made everything from baby quilts to bridal veils. I even made my own wedding gown. I've made jewely and learned to tole paint.
I have always sold most everything I have ever made.

I recently moved from California to Virginia and now to Las Vegas in July of 2014 due to my husbands government work transfer.

I hope you enjoy browsing through my shop. If you have a baby or need a baby toy or baby gift, be sure a pick up one of the crinkle toys I make, you won't be disappointed!!!
