Simple Kids Wear

Seattle, Washington

Top shop for gifts.

Buyers bought gifts from this shop and gave them 5-star reviews!

Announcement    ***Opening Soon***

My love of the sewing arts began when my parents, two brothers and I moved across the country to a small town in Washington state. The house we bought was filled with antiques. One of these treasures was a 1920s Singer sewing machine. An idea formed in my head, and with the help of a neighbor, who was a skilled seamstress, I learned to make my own clothes.

Years later when I began my own family, I expanded my sewing skills to making kids clothing. I learned a lot in the passing years raising 11 children. I noticed that they gravitated to three things when choosing what to wear. Comfort, roominess, and easy to put on and take off. This experience has made the model I use today. Simple kids clothes from soft, natural, and organic fabric that kids love.

Now that my children are grown, I want to use what I've learned to pass these types of clothes on to you and your children.

Creating Little Laughing Ducks

It’s no secret that not all handmade is quality. Being the mother of 11 kids, I know firsthand how important it is to have clothes that won’t fall apart after three washings. After much trial and error, I was able to perfect the sewing skills I started developing when I was growing up and sew clothes that were not only durable but cute and fun to wear.

Of course, my kids grew up and didn’t need me to sew for them anymore, but I kept sewing and creating for the sheer joy of it. For me, sewing is a must. It gives me an outlet for my creative energy and helps me relax. Eventually, some of my kids suggested I sell what I make. One of my sons referred me to Etsy, so I opened a shop under the name My Cotton Candy Designs in 2010.

I took a break from my shop in 2011 due to circumstances but reopened in 2013 with my daughter Bronte joining me as a second seamstress and business manager. Last year we began making a lot of changes to our shop and just recently changed our name to Little Laughing Ducks. The inspiration for the name comes from our two ducks that seem to be the happiest creatures on earth no matter what is going on. And they make laughing sounds (really, they do!) that remind me of my own kids when they were growing up.

Our goal is to provide parents with baby clothes up to 24 months that are not only durable and professional but cute and trendy. We offer both organic and conventional wear but are working to add more organic selections for conscientious parents. Please take a look around our shop and keep up with us on social media. We appreciate your visit and are so glad you took the time to get to know us a little. Feel free to contact us with any questions!

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

All our items are made with organic fibers. This means they must be properly taken care of to last. Birch recommends washing on delicate or handwash cycle in cold water. Dry on LOW heat or air dry. This is very important because organic fabrics are not infused with chemical dyes, which lets you have softer, eco-friendly, non-toxic fabric for baby's skin. If you do not follow these recommended washing instructions we cannot accept any returns on your item.

Custom and personalized orders

If you see something you like but would prefer a different size or fabric, please contact us and we'll be happy to work with you.

Wholesale availability

Currently we do not offer wholesale. We are a small business and simply are not equipped to provide the amount necessary for wholesale needs. If you would like multiple items that are made to order we will gladly work with you.

International Shipping

We are willing to ship internationally, however you will need to contact us FIRST before purchase to ask for a specific price. Price will vary depending on your location. If you are willing to pay the extra shipping then we will adjust the listing and reserve it for you.
