Hi! My name is Kelley and I started my small business in 2015 when our family was living in London. My daughter, Madeline, started nursery and having a few extra hours in my day, I wanted to learn something new and I knew it would involve making things for her.
I fell in love with the beautiful Liberty of London fabrics and this set things in motion. I bought a sewing machine and taught myself to sew. I opened my Etsy shop and stocked it with hand-tied bows. When my little guy, Logan, came along in 2017, I began making bow ties too.
We moved back to the states in July 2019 and the Andersonville neighborhood of Chicago became home. Sewing is my creative outlet and has provided me with much needed stress relief, especially during the pandemic. I love finding beautiful fabrics to make accessories and source them from small businesses and from abroad.
The latest addition to my brand came about during the pandemic when I was looking for a headband for myself but couldn’t find one in a fabric I liked or one that was comfortable to wear all day. The headbands are one size suitable for for both girls (ages 4+) and women as they are lightweight and gently stretchable.
In the shop you’ll also find a range of bows and headbands for newborns, babies and girls. Opt. for reversible alligator clips or nylon one size-fits-most headbands that are soft and grow with your baby. Each gorgeous bow is cut, sewn, pressed, hand-tied and secured with care. I sew through each hand-tied bow so that it doesn't come undone. Boys are not forgotten - there are sweet bow ties for babies, boys and older guys, which add the perfect touch to a special outfit!
