About

Where the cuteness follows the girls and playtime grabs the boys

My fingers first hit the sewing machine during the Madonna era of the 80's. I took the Material Girl title literally. With Madonna’s fashion forward clothing, I couldn’t help wanting to create similar designs for myself. So, I bought some fabric and my love for sewing was born.

Time went on and as Madonna’s style changed, so did my life. Several years later, my daughter was born. As it typically is with girls, I wanted to dress her in every single cute thing I saw. It really got me thinking, “I can make this.” Back to the fabric store I went. When I sat down at the sewing machine, I felt that passion from years ago get fired back up. I began creating fun boutique clothes for little girls.

As word spread among my daughter’s friends and their moms, my cute little shirts quickly became popular. That is when April Michelle Designs was born. Since my opening in 2014, I have expanded my designs to include shirts for boys, moms, and dads. I have also added hooded towels, reading pillows, personalized stuffies, and a few more items to make your special little one feel extra special.

April Michelle Designs is a small boutique specializing in embroidery and applique. I have been sewing for over 20 years. I primarily offer handmade baby and children items, but I like to include things for Mom and Dad as well. I really enjoy creating new things, so I love custom order requests.

Quality is important to me. All of our shirts are 100% ring-spun combed cotton which makes them super soft and of superior quality. All of my items are handmade by me in my home office, so you can be assured they are free of exposure to pets and smoke. Your absolute satisfaction is of great importance to me.

Thank you so much for visiting my shop!

Additional policies and FAQs
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS: updated 1/1/2018

Items are CUSTOM and hand-made by me in my sewing studio. We are a pet-free, smoke-free family. The samples shown in pictures are just that, a sample. Fabric placement and border stitching may differ slightly, as I can't make any two items exactly the same. I provide detailed pictures and product descriptions so you are confident before purchasing. While care is taken to represent colors accurately, every monitor is different and I cannot guarantee the colors you see match the colors of actual fabric.

1. HOW DO YOUR SIZES RUN? CHILD OR YOUTH: Past customers have let us know that our shirts run true to size. These are thicker, boutique quality shirts - not your average store bought shirt. If you're not sure about sizing - please review the size chart and compare the measurement to a shirt that currently fits you or your child.
ADULT: We use Gildan Thick Unisex or Comfort Colors Unisex shirts. These are standard adult Small, Medium, Large, XLarge, etc...
