This month we are excited to introduce you to Robin Colion from Robin's Lullaby Boutique out of Houston, Texas! Robin makes handcrafted custom baby essentials. As you may know, summers in Texas are HOT, and on those days Robin would spend time in her grandmothers craft room. She remembers sitting next to her grandmother at the sewing machine and learning a ton! Robin recalls the first thing she ever sewed was a quilt for one of her baby dolls (we'd love to see a photo of that)!
After her grandmother passed away Robin and her sister were sorting through her belongings and she came across that same sewing machine, which she took home with her. The rediscovery of the sewing machine came at the perfect time in life, and Robin began sewing burp cloths, bibs, and baby bodysuits and opened her Etsy shop. "I love sewing and I love babies
so this is the perfect combination for me," she says. The name of her shop, Robin's Lullaby Boutique, came from the songs Robin would sing to her girls as babies while she rocked them to sleep.
Robin's favorite part of her handmade biz is working closely with her customers to create one of a kind and meaningful pieces, "I love hearing from people about how their order is for their dear family member or friend who is having a baby. It makes me proud to know something I physically made with my own two hands is going to be cherished by a mother for the rest of her life." Robin's beautiful pieces have been a wonderful addition to our shop, and she's even made us some Michigan themed bodysuits for your little ones as well.
