LOVE THESE! They fit perfect on my baby and are super cute! Also, the lady that made them got them out really fast for being made to order and hand made. Thank you so much!

Absolutely brilliant! I bought these as a gift, and the recipient was so happy! She said: "They're so soft!" Definitely buying when I have my own ;D

My daughter received the slippers 3days ago They came very quickly but my daughter quarantined them for 3 days. The shoes fit well and the larger pair had little grippies on the bottom. My granddaughter did not want to take them off and never likes shoes There usually off within a couple of minutes. The design is beautiful my oldest granddaughter really likes the Marian design. The quality is great I just wish they came in larger sizes.
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!
