Marianne's Profile

About

Hello, my name is Marianne, and I'm a work at home mom of two sweet twin girls that are the inspiration for my Etsy shop, The Naptime Project.

I originally started making bibs, onesies, and diaper clutches while my babies napped, which I shared in a Facebook album called "Nap Time Projects". After much encouragement from friends and family, I opened my Etsy shop in April of 2012.

I grew up watching my mother busy at the sewing table; I always wore handmade Halloween costumes and prom dresses, and I often heard "I could make that!" when I showed her dresses and skirts at the store. My grandma was known to have made choir robes for her church from the curtains they took down. It is safe to say that I really love to sew.

Hello, my name is Marianne, and I'm a work at home mom of two sweet twin girls that are the inspiration for my Etsy shop, The Naptime Project.

I originally started making bibs, onesies, and diaper clutches while my babies napped, which I shared in a Facebook album called "Nap Time Projects". After much encouragement from friends and family, I opened my Etsy shop in April of 2012.

I grew up watching my mother busy at the sewing table; I always wore handmade Halloween costumes and prom dresses, and I often heard "I could make that!" when I showed her dresses and skirts at the store. My grandma was known to have made choir robes for her church from the curtains they took down. It is safe to say that I really love to sew.

I truly enjoy the entire process. I can sometimes be found on the weekends (when my husband is home to play with the girls!) wandering through the fabric store, thinking about designs and patterns, and choosing "just the right" fabrics for a project. I love starting with a square of fabric and my scissors, and seeing my idea come to creation.

I also enjoy working with people, and am delighted when someone chooses my shop. I feel honored that people have chosen Naptime Projects for their littles to wear for birthdays, weddings, and special events. Sharing in the process with my customers and seeing their photos or hearing how the dress was received makes it all worth it for me!

I hope that my shop and designs represent childhood: lots of colors, playfulness, and whimsy. I make clothing that I love, and I hope you like it too. Thank you for visiting, and for supporting handmade.
