Featured Artist - Mama Monkey
My featured artist today is Mama Monkey on Etsy. Mama Monkey is the place to find the most sweet and sassy, fun and functional handcrafted original apparel and accessories for babies, children and moms. Here you will find everything from funny baby onesies and maternity shirts with a sense of humor to soft minky baby blankets with irresistible cuteness.
Mama Monkey is a SAHM to two sons, 7 and 1 1/2. She has a degree in apparel design and previously worked as a designer in children's clothes for a major department store. She says, "Shopping for baby gear made me really see the need for hip, up to date baby gear that is functional and fashionable, so I am trying to fill that void."
At left is an adorable onesie, a take-off on the iPod craze. She prints all shirts and onesies in her home studio, located in Kent, WA. Custom orders for words to be printed are welcome at no extra charge, and all designs are available in sizes newborn to 4T.
Check out her shop for more cute tees for all ages, blankets, children's dresses, maternity wear, bibs, quilts and more!
Below is one of her cuddly blankets - doesn't it make you long for a nap?
