This was perfect!!! She sent it to me super fast as we needed a solution to our door closing and not letting heat out of our daughter's room. The quality is great and it is super cute! Thanks!!
We are....the Creator of the Door Muff!
Snuggling a precious newborn is priceless. And snuggling them in a custom, made just for them quilt makes the moment even more special! So that's when I started making custom rag quilts for my sisters and friends and their lil angels!
We opened our Etsy shop in March 2010 with 11 rag quilts....and they sold veeerrrrryyyy slowly. Actually my customers consisted of friends, my mom, and oh, my mom! :)
And then in December 2010, my sister asked me to make something to help her nursery door close quietly....and so the Door Muff was created!! My husband designed its function and work-ability and I took that and added cuteness! And they needed a name....so my hubby came up with "Door Muffler - Door Muff for short". The Door Muff was born! :)
We knew right away that it was an awesome product and there wasn't anything like it on the market. But they weren't selling...We knew they just needed the right exposure. I tried selling them at a local vintage/craft fair, retail at a local high-end baby store, at my sis-in-laws salon, and on Etsy. My customers were my friends & family (I love you!) and the occasional passerby, but we wanted to expand our customer base.
Months had gone by without a single sale so I put my Etsy store on a permanent "vacation" to give myself a break from the daily disappointment. AND THEN....the week before Thanksgiving (2011), I woke up to a TON of emails asking when I'd be back from vacation because they just had to have a Door Muff! And so it began... :)
It turns out that someone "pinned" our Door Muffs on to Pinterest and they got "re-pinned" hundreds and hundreds of times and brought THOUSANDS of views to my Etsy page!! Orders have been coming in non-stop and we've brought joy to soooooo many parents by helping allow their babies to sleep longer without waking to the sound of the door handle! :) We also have a few out there in offices too!
To that person who first pinned us on Pinterest....THANK YOU! If I knew who you were, I'd give you a big 'ol kiss! :)
So every day I am busy sewing Door Muffs and Burp Cloths! I love it! And I love all my customers!
It's a team effort here at "Sweet Dreams by Tami"! My hubby is Quality Control, I design and sew, and our son helps package up orders and hands them all to the person at the post office!
That's our humble story! Thank You for stopping by!

I am best known for our sweet lil Door Muffs! Created by my hubby and me in Dec. 2010, we began selling them wherever we could! In Nov 2011, our Door Muffs were pinned on Pinterest.com and the rest is history!
All the rag quilts, etc. that you find on my page are made in my pet free, smoke free home. These quilts are extremely well made and will last generations - unless, however, your precious child loves & snuggles it to death!
