Meet Maria from paisleybaby

One of the adorable gifts I received just after my son was born was this set of handmade washcloths on my "gift registry"  from paisleybaby:

Washcloth Set of Two in I Think I Can
Buy it here

These handmade cloths are TONS better than the dinky store bought kind. Besides, these are so much more fun! They wash really well and are just the right size. I picked this pattern before I knew our baby was a boy :)

Maria really has a great eye for fabric. 
Here are a few of my favorite's from her shop:

Baby Bib in Bright Blue Green Yellow Whales
Buy it here
Large Wet Bag in Sky Blue Owl Hoots
Buy it here

I really love it when a store has a good variety of items for both Moms and babies like paisleybaby does. I wish I had these cute capri's: 

Capri Lounge Pant S Small in Pink Green Church Flowers
Buy it here

Ask yourself this, can you really ever have too many zipper pouches. If it were possible, that would mean one was not creative enough to come up with other ways to use them!

I'm getting carried away, guess I'm having too much fun! Let's get to know the creator of these marvelous items: 

Q: How do you come up with new ideas? 
A: I am inspired by all the beautiful fabric there is out there.

Q: What is the best business decision you ever made? 

A: Opening an Etsy shop.

Q: Worst? 

A: Launching new products without really thinking them through.

Q: What advice do you have for new sellers on Etsy? 

A: Do not underestimate the amount of exposure you need to have a successful shop.

Q: Just for fun, what is your favorite shop on Etsy?
A:  I spend an awful lot of time browsing in this shop:
