Jamie taught herself to sew 7 years ago when her husband gifted her a sewing machine for Christmas. She stays at home with her "easy" children and she needed something to fill her time while adjusting to not working full-time outside of the home. Jamie started making gifts for friends, and after receiving complements like "you should be selling these" or "I know so many people that would want that" she decided to look for an online venue. In came Etsy, which became the venue for her boutique, Boody Babies.
Says Jamie, "My creations are inspired by my everyday life and sometimes a desire to escape a little. Like my aprons...I haven't made one for myself, but I love the romance of bringing back something that was a staple in every kitchen way back when. My children are the main "everyday life" inspiration. All the dresses that I have listed or sold were made after first creating one for my daughter."
Jamie very generously sent me a custom-made mini diaper tote for review. She first asked what type of fabrics I liked, and I told her that I like black and white and I'm drawn to elegant and classic fabrics, like damasks. What arrived at my door exceeded my expectations. I love this tote. Made from very sturdy canvas material and fully-lined, it features a small inside pocket, key hook and magnetic snap closure. It is part polka-dot, part damask and all style. I work part-time, and I'll be using this tote on work days to cart around the work I bring home.
I have to show you some of the inside features of this tote--I love the key hook! Are you a new fan of Boody Babies, like me?
