Babymoon Boutique was inspired after my fifth baby was born when I decided I wanted to open my own business. Previously I had been working for a local boutique, truly testing the limits of my sewing skills, and I knew then I was ready to branch out on my own! Designs by Babymoon is the logical path that my sewing journey has lead me on, as I continue to harness emboidery machines and computer software to bring you beautiful and useful designs that bring you joy!
A babymoon is that sweet time when a mother, and family, welcomes the newest little addition to their home. It is a time of gentleness, reflection, love and peace, and it is these qualities I strive to incorporate in all of my products. The time with a newborn is so very precious and short, but so incredibly powerful in the life and growth of a new mother. Supporting new moms is one of my dear passions in real life, and the bonds I've made with dear friends through my former work with la leche leage will last forever.
As a business, I focus on making beautiful products that truly have a family vibe for all life stages. Many of my customers appreciate that like them, I am working at home, with a handful of children underfoot doing everything I can to support my family and set a good example. My job is to maintain personal integrity, excellence in my business services, and a fantastic product at all times.
While I am the owner, operator and artisan behind Designs by Babymoon, I am proud to say I'm fully supported by my husband and nine kids (who sometimes double as product testers!). My products are available online through Designsbybabymoon.com as as a select assortment of designs in my Etsy shop (designsbybabymoon.etsy.com).
I’ve been sewing as long as I can remember, and it is no stretch to say that sewing is in my bones. Literally. When I was a child, my mother and my grandmothers were excellent seamstresses and let me create with them my whole life growing up. At some point in my life, while under their guidance, I must have slipped away and stepped on a needle…because some twenty years later an X-ray revealed one embedded deep in my foot! This caused a minor panic in the ER, but it was painless, and had been present for years so I opted not to have surgery. That needle remains with me even now as a very special connection to my craft.
In 2020 I joined the Brand Ambassador team with Shannon Fabrics as a regional instructor and am trained in educating sewists of all skill levels to use the beautiful Cuddle® and Luxe Cuddle® minky fabrics in their home decor, garment sewing and quilting projects. If you are interested in receiving a high quality educational presentation for your Quilt Shop or sewing group, I am available for booking through Shannon Fabrics.

When I make something new, I really am thinking about where it will end up and who will be using it. I want my embroidery designs to bring happiness to the maker and the recipient of the made item, and when I make a custom item I feel a special connection to the customer and those who are touched by the finished product. I am so especially grateful for the trust they put in me to execute their idea. I want to thank you for taking the time to learn about Designs by Babymoon, and welcome any questions, concerns or compliments.
