Just Doing What We Love

The shop stemmed from a need for making/creating homemade things, the desire to give my friends cute, unique and non-mass produced baby shower items, and loving that I found a fun hobby that my mom and I could collaborate on. The shop has been a slow work in progress for the past few years (as this is not our full-time jobs, but more of a hobby) and I am happy with the direction we are now taking and am inspired (almost) every day to create something new.

While my mom has been sewing for 40 years, her new love is embroidery, so I handle most of the sewing. My mother does all of the embroidery work for our shop (hooded towels, personalization, etc) and hand makes all of the lovely, fun and unique bias tape that trims our hooded towels. Just recently, she started to make boppy covers as well, which I think are a great addition to our store.

I sew baby bibs, toddler bibs, burp cloths, blankies, reversible aprons, and am responsible for finishing up the hooded towels and tooth fairy pillows that my Mom starts. It is really fun working together and sharing our ideas (which are sometimes strikingly different) with each other!

While a lot of baby products can only be used for a short period of time (bibs and burp cloths, for example) and mass-manufactured baby items are sometimes not made to stand repeated washings, we pride ourselves on providing durable high quality items that could potentially last through multiple children. Our hooded towels are probably our most functional item, because they are sized to last from infancy through early grade-school.

We are committed to helping local and national causes, and donate our items for fundraisers as often as we can.
