Our doll clothes are fun, trendy, stylish, and reasonably priced.  Our wall of accessories is amazing, from eyeglasses to suede boots, to sequin sneakers.  You have to see the accessories to believe it.. :)

I also sell my quilts and doll clothes at Chesterton's European Market in Chesterton, Indiana. I strive to give all my customers quality items and put the utmost care in the making of them.

I put as much care and love in the products I make as if I was making them for my family. I'm excited about the styles, the colors, the fabrics. It is truly a joy for me to put a pattern, fabric and thread together and see the end product.

All items are made in a loving, non-smoking home, and in my sewing studio at the boutique.

I try to use only cotton fabrics in my quilts. The minky squares are not cotton, but they add softness and texture to the quilts, adding dimension for the babies to touch and cuddle.

I call my quilts sensory quilts because my quilts are made to please the baby's senses.
My patchwork quilts have different textured squares, cotton, minky, lace and flannel. My rag quilts have soft edges for the baby to touch and feel. My quilts are warm, cuddly, and perfect for tummy time. The babies love the softness and colors delight them.

All my quilts are made from 100% cotton fabric except for the minky squares. My rag quilts are made from 100% cotton flannel unless otherwise specified. The batting used for all quilts is 100% felted cotton
