Sales on Etsy

I was able to post items on etsy this evening! The first one was a leopard print toddler bib and it sold for $4.00 within 5 minutes of listing! I now have three listed: Strawberry Shortcake, Pink and Brown Checkered print, and another leopard print (all toddler bibs)! I will be shipping my first order tomorrow morning! Check them out!


I ran out of time today to post my first set of bibs on ebay and etsy, as I got busy with the family and miscellaneous things! Tomorrow afternoon will be my official "Grand Opening"! I will have photos up on my photobucket site, and both my ebay and etsy stores up and running! As of right now I have 22 toddler bibs for my start up listings! I can't wait to see what happens! I'm on Twitter as well (HeartNSewDesign) so you can follow my posting there, too! I can't believe that after all the ideas, researching, planning, preparing (and not to mention, sewing!) that tomorrow is the big day! No turning back now! Everyone starts somewhere and I just can't wait to see where this takes me! I look forward to a huge response from the public!

I will post back when I am officially been "open for business"!

About Me...

My name is Nichole and I am a stay at home mother of three. My husband John and I have been married for over three years now. We have two sons, Dominic 7 years old, Drake 2.5 years old, and one daughter, Zoey 10 months old!

Although my business is just getting started, I have been sewing off and on for years. As for now, my focus is on toddler/baby bibs and special needs/adult bibs! They are all handmade by me, using my own pattern. They are made with cotton flannel backing, and two sets of snap closures for adjustable sizing! I accept custom order requests for patterns/prints, quantities and even special sizing needs! This site will be kept up to date with links to where my items are posted for sale! You can find them on and ebay! Feel free to email me with any questions, concerns or requests!

Fun fact:
My business name, Heart N Sew Designs, is derived from my signature (the heart symbol signed at the end of my name). The symbol was designed by me in 1998, in remembrance of my grandfather, who told me: "Whatever you do, do it with your heart and soul." In 2006, I tattooed that symbol on the inside of my left leg along as part of an intricate tattoo design I had drawn on myself! When I got married, I made that part of my 'official/legal' signature!
