Messy Kids Designs brings custom clothing, nursery and children's decor, quilts and more to your home!

Our shop came to life after I was lucky enough to be a stay at home mom for 3 and a half years to my sweet and very busy twins. As a former special eduation teacher, I knew I wanted to work with kids, but still wanted the flexibilty to be a stay at home mom too. After woking on many projects for my kids and then having requests to make the same for friends, both with the shirts I design and the quilts my mom and creative partner created, Messy Kids Designs came to life.

Maria(aka, Mom or Nana) is a retired inner city school teacher who has worked in a range of special education, gifted, second to fourth grade, and technology, has found her love in quilting after retiring from the Chicago public Schools.

Together we hope to bring fun and creative designs to our customers that are durable enough to stand up to busy kids. We love a good design challenge and welcome custom orders, you convo us your idea and we will make it come to life!

Our name? Messy Kids Designs, because life with kids is messy and we wouldn't have it any other way!
