I love this pattern, it produced a great bib that wasn't too small and had good coverage.

Hand quilted kitchen hot pads inspired by modern quilting and made from quilt binding scraps in my stash. Lesson: Never throw scraps away!
Many of these quilts are in my shop and the others are brand new! They're coming with me to the Handmade Chic Holiday Market in Sheboygan on Monday November 16!

Simple. Warm. Cozy.

My name is Kim. I want you to feel like this today: warm, messy, hopeful and funny.

Thoughtful design inspires each one of my products. As my story evolves, so do my designs. I make accessories that align with my lifestyle, reflect positivity and hopefully help you feel good.

My line of bandana baby bibs began in my railroad apartment in Brooklyn while on maternity leave. I added handmade quilts upon moving from New York City to small-town Wisconsin late last year. All year long I have my knitting needles close so I can make new woolly hats when I feel inspired.

I began my small business making handbags and crocheted neckwear for the urban explorer, which is exactly who I was in 2008. Prior to selling on Etsy, I made simple clothing for the carefree twenty-something who loves to jump around and embrace summer.

Take a look at my Tumblr to read about my #quiltAmonth project, a self-motivating challenge for 2015. http://simplewarmcozy.tumblr.com/

For nearly 5 years (February 2010 - October 2014) I worked for Etsy on the Member Operations team in Brooklyn, NY. My most favorite project was managing the Team Fellowship Program, a quarterly program developed to bring communities of Etsy sellers together to build strength. Overall, I'm proud of the work I did that was pulled from a place of empathy and shared acknowledgment of seller integrity, ambition and struggle. Helping sellers to recognize their individual fears and strengths gave me a personal sense of purpose.

In 2013, I became a mom to my little boy. He nearly arrived at the Etsy office in Brooklyn, but luckily held out until we were in a more appropriate setting.

In 2014, I left my job at Etsy and moved my family to a tiny town in eastern Wisconsin. I am thrilled to be a part of the Etsy community again as a maker, entrepreneur, and new stay at home mom.

Here's to a simple, warm and cozy life.

    Made the jump from living in Brooklyn, New York to a small town in Wisconsin with my husband and our little boy. Grass filled yards, bright stars, quiet nights, family, warm home, big sky.

Additional policies and FAQs
Looking to order a custom knit hat for you or a kid you know? Please follow this video on how to properly measure your head for a custom knit hat (this isn't me, I found it on Youtube)


Once I have all of the above information, I will set up a custom listing for you. When the transaction is complete, I will have the hat ready to ship in 1-2 weeks.

What happens if you get the hat and it doesn't fit? We have a couple options:

1. You can send the hat back to me and I will replace it with a different size. You will pay for shipping to me and I will pay for the new hat to ship back to you. This will take about 1-2 weeks and I only offer exchanges one time for each product.

2. You can ship the hat back to me and we can cancel the transaction and you will get a full refund.

Reach out with any questions via convo - I will return your inquiry with in a day.
