thebluemagnolia's Shop Announcement

Hand Crafted items made with love............

I am the mother of four grown children, grandmother of 10, and great grandmother, selling the items I make with love allows me to spend my days with my grandchildren. My Daughter is helping me create new and fun items that are great for the entire family. As a team we have fun, laugh a lot and critique each other. We are always looking for a fun way to wear things.

I do custom orders, email me if you have special color schemes or ideas in mind

Welcome to The Blue Magnolia on Etsy!

I have been gifting my projects since my children were babies.
I make each item with someone special in mind, and I hope my items find your loved ones.

If you are new to Etsy you'll need to register to make purchases or to contact me here via "Conversations". Joining is free and easy - just click on the "register" link at the top this page.

My items are finished products and ready to ship. If you would like a custom order I will happily create a 'CUSTOM ORDER' listing to be prepaid. Unless it is stated otherwise in a listing, my current lead time is approximately 1 - 2 weeks on custom orders. Transit time is additional. If you need something sooner contact me prior to ordering and I will let you know if I can help - most often I can! If your order is for a special occasion please make a note of the date in the "message to seller" at checkout.


I offer "True to age sizing". This means that most children (Newborn - 8 years) will wear the size that corresponds to their actual age. Girl's sizes 10 - 14 yrs run similar to the higher quality clothing lines sold in stores. Once your child reaches half way to the next age I recommend ordering one size up (this especially applies to infant sizes 3 - 24m). If you'd like help with sizing, include your child's height, weight and age (in years and months) in the message to seller at checkout.

When designing clothing for children I always incorporate sizing flexibility features and factor in growing room. This makes getting the right size easier and also provides extended fit so that children can wear my clothing for a very long time!

For hard to fit children I also provide custom sizing. Contact me prior to ordering to discuss what measurements I will need you to supply.


All of my garments go right in the washer and dryer. To keep them looking new I recommend cool water wash and a med/low dryer setting. Hang dresses and skirts when dry or nearly dry. Iron on steam setting if desired. ( More often than not I even hand dry my clothing then press)

If the fabric has a special finish, such as a gold or pearlescent overlay (I will let you know in the listing) I recommend turning it inside out and washing on a gentle cycle.

My entire line is made of fine quality 100% cotton fabrics. Because cotton knit fabrics shrink substantially when first laundered I pre-wash all of my cotton knits. The high quality woven designer prints I use shrink only minimally, if at all. I add a little extra room when sizing my garments to allow for any residual shrinkage.
