modern things for baby + adoption

Well, where should I begin?

I guess it all started when my mother-in-law gifted me with her sewing machine a few years ago.

I didn't even know what a bobbin was, but I was excited to learn! I sewed curtains, pillow covers, and whatever else struck my fancy. Pretty soon my friends started having babies, babies, & more babies, and the shower invites began pouring in. I wasn't crazy about all the pastels and ducks showcased at most baby stores (friends shouldn't let friends buy ugly baby gear), so I started sewing unique handmade gifts for these friends and their little ones. It was a hit!

When my husband Tim and I began the domestic infant adoption process in December of 2011, I combined my love for adoption with my love for sewing, and hope: handmade was born in late May of 2012. During that time, 100% of the proceeds from this shop went straight to our adoption fund.

In September of 2012 little Norah joined our family and flipped our world upside down in the most amazing way! She is simply the coolest baby ever. We made the (potentially crazy) decision for me to quit my day job to stay home with our little booger head. I couldn't wait to bring that sewing machine back out and get creative again.

Today, hope: handmade is a lovely little creative outlet that allows me to help support our family and still be there to change poopy diapers, snuggle our little girl whenever I want to, and of course wear yoga pants the entire time.

I cannot thank you enough for your support of this little shop. I am honored to be able to create something fun and unique for you and your little one!

    Hi! I'm Norah. I'm sort of a big deal around here. My job is to distract my mom while she's trying to sew, but most importantly I test run all the cool stuff you see here. I like my play gym, bath time, and spitting up.
