A mama, a sewing machine, and an obsession with fabric

When we had our first child, a sweet baby girl, I wanted to deck her out in fun and fashionable headbands and bows. She had such a bright personality (which her wardrobe reflected) so I was always looking for accessories with bright and fun colors and prints. But being a SAHM in a single-income family, I was reluctant to spend the high prices that some shops and boutiques were asking. So I decided to try my hand at making my own, and found out I was not only pretty good at it, but I really enjoyed it. A few headbands here and there turned into a giant box filled with one-of-a-kind designs that I didn't have enough use for! I started giving them away to friends and family members but the bug had bit and I just kept on creating! Headbands and clips evolved into nursing covers, bibs, burp cloths, and even custom onesies and earrings.
When our second child, a mushy baby boy, was born I decided I wanted to try something new! After seeing a friend's baby wearing some adorable cotton crib shoes I knew what my next task would be. Some leftover flannel owl fabric and a few minutes behind the sewing machine and Mushies were born! I've said goodbye (mostly) to the headbands and bows now that Mushies have become our most popular item but I'm always trying out new things. Most recently our colorful and snuggly teething/tag lovies.

A passion for creating fun designs for little ones and mamas, at affordable prices, is what started and continues to fuel my humble shop. I am incredibly grateful for every ounce of support and love given by my wonderful shoppers and pray it will continue to inspire and encourage me while I watch my shop grow!

Welcome to theKeenBean, a humble little shop named after my eldest daughter who we lovingly called 'Bean' as a squishy newborn.

All of my pieces are inspired by the joy my own sweet littles bring me and by mamas who are looking to support small businesses while spending less!
Each item is handmade with love, by yours truly, in a smoke-free, laughter-filled home.

They make great gifts (Get lots of "oohs" and "awwws" at baby showers) and can be customized to match your style.
