Lily Pad is a pair of stay home moms that sew like mad women. They make beautiful baby bibs, smocks, blankets, slings, and so much more. I have a toddler and an infant and i have no idea how either of them have the time to make so much stuff. They are a little crazy with finding awesome fabrics so everything looks so unique. I went to their open house a couple weeks ago and I wish I had gone with more money. Often when I go to these things I tend to bring a $20 or something because I LOVE handmade items and if I bring $100 I will spend $100. I am sure if I brought $1000 I would find a way to use every last cent. There were so many beautiful items. They had a group of other friends who were selling their goods along with the two of them and I SO wanted another $40-$50 to spend. I of course ordered a couple bibs to go along with the one I bought for $12. My daughter is a very messy eater at 2 1/2 so I had to get one of their pocket bibs. I intend to buy all the new babies in my life gifts handmade by the artisans at Lily Pad, Corinna Silvestri and Jaimee Loewen.
If you want to have a look at their adorable items they have an etsy site:
I totally recommend skipping the gift registry at one of the department stores and buy something unique and help out your community by buying local.
