About ApplesauceAndKetchup

Sales 669
On Etsy since 2014

motherhood turned me into a creator & maker of all kind of things kids favorite

In search of simple, stylish & unique products for my 2 kids, I set about creating and making my own products for them.

I am originally from The Netherlands and moved to The USA when I was 35 weeks pregnant of my first child.
Both of my kids were born in the USA.
Sometimes I missed shopping at my favorite Dutch stores, using the products I grew up with and the Dutch culture. These are some of the reasons I started to make items myself.
From here, Applesauce & Ketchup was born. the name Applesauce & Ketchup because my oldest child (picky as he is) likes to eat whatever better with Applesauce or Ketchup. And probably a lot of kids do too.

At this moment I am a stay at home mom. Before I became a mom I was a Product Manager in the shoes business for an international retail organization. My educational background is fashion management and traditional shoemaking.
I am always creating things in my mind and have a big interest in all kinds of things that inspire me. Most of the inspiration for the things I make I get from my 2 kids who are young and have a big interest and great imaginations.
I love to create and make the special things or needs in their little lives.
Like decorations for a birthday party or bibs that look adorable and are functional, items to play with, dress up clothes, teepee tents for hide and seek, bedding for great dreams about rocket ships and race cars.
But also products that are well known in Europe and not so well known in the USA, like the diaper clutches that make moms lives so much easier!.
Everything is handmade by me, Bauke, alone and made by using durable materials. The simplistic designs ensure pieces will become much loved items that can be passed on from one child to the next.

WELCOME & THANK YOU for shopping at my Etsy store.

In my shop you will find creations I made inspired by my kids and motherhood.
I love to create things that kids love.
Products that will fill their hearts with joy, puts a smile on their face and gives the many hours to play.

From my home, in the city of Rotterdam, The Netherlands, I love to create unique items.
All the products are designed and created by me and carefully handmade.
The garments used in my products are chosen with the greatest love and care for beautiful and unique fabrics.
Everywhere I travel, I shop for fabrics. This is one of the reasons you will find unique pieces in my shop

TESTED

All the designs in my shop have been tested and made for my own family.
I have used the diaper clutch for 3 years, my son loves his pillow cases in favorite figures, no birthday party goes without handmade banners, our babydolls sleep as cosy as my kids do and so the story continues....
So, everything has been tested in home and still most of the items are in use in my own family, like the pillows, the crowns, banners and blouses..

Items that have passed our test and are great in use and quality will be listed in this store and it will be very possible you will find other color combinations or fabric combinations of that item.

CUSTOM MADE

Because of the reason I like to keep my items unique, I do not buy a bulk of the same fabrics to make exactly the same product over and over again in the same fabric and color combination. I love to variate and combine colors and prints.
I love to make CUSTOM REQUESTS
