The seamstress behind the seams. Err, scenes.
Pink Pigeon Creations is the result of years of crafting from a computer nerd. By profession I'm just another IT worker in the Boston area, but I spend my days now with my two young children, and by night I let my creativity run free sewing and tinkering with graphic design.
After years of sewing and designing for family and friends, I decided it was time to branch out and share my ideas with you. When I was expecting my son, most of my other hobbies (snow skiing, volleyball, horseback riding, wine tasting, among others) were off limits! Sewing was perfect, though, and since I had lots of expecting friends and family at the time, I started designing things for little ones and their parents and caregivers. I've branched out with a few more "grown up" items lately, but I still have a focus on eco-friendly, stylish handmade things that make venturing out into the real world with baby in tow easier and more organized.
All of my items are 100% machine washable. I use and abuse pieces made from the same materials and methods as what's for sale here, and they're still going strong. True story - when I went into labor two weeks early, I had yet to make a diaper bag for myself! So, I swiped a black and white one from my collection of items for sale, and I've used it every single day since.
It's been stuffed in cars, strollers, airplane overheads, and inside other suitcases. It's traveled at least 9,000 miles by plane, train, car, bus, boat, stroller, on foot, and no telling what else. It's been through the washing machine and dryer several times, and it's still just as cute as the day I yanked it off the shelf with no signs of wear and tear.
Have a look around at what's for sale today, check out our fabric collections, and contact me if you have any questions or would like something custom - I'm happy to oblige.
If you're in New England, check out our events calendar- I'll be updating it with the artisan markets I'll be attending this season. Come and check us out!
Stay in touch! Like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter, or join our mailing list. I promise - no ridiculous spam, and I don't send out emails too often (where would I find the time, between sewing and keeping the little one away from the sewing machine?!). I do send out occasional coupons or specials, information about new products or gorgeous new fabrics, and if I can get it together, some holiday items - for Mother's Day and Father's Day, of course!
Thanks for stopping by!
