The Hedgehog Romper (that stole my heart)

I just love instagram. Without it, I may never have stumbled upon so many darling small shops like the one I’m sharing with you today. Southern Fabrics Boutique is a new Etsy Shop out of Evans, Georgia owned by Debbie Bailey, the creative behind the beautiful baby clothes they offer. She tells her story like this:

“I have had a love of sewing since I was a little girl. I remember a few of my first sewing projects were dresses for Christmas and Easter. I had to be around 8 or 9 years old! Since then, a lot has changed! But my love for all things related to sewing has not! I am happily married and my husband and I have 4 children. Our newest and greatest surprise arrived in February 2016! Since his arrival I have been extremely busy but I am slowly adding items to my shop. If you have any questions or need a custom order please don’t hesitate to ask! I look forward to sewing for you soon!”

The moment I saw this beautiful hedgehog romper, I fell in love with it. It’s so unique and the hedgehogs remind me of my cousin, Debbie, who I don’t get to see nearly often enough but I will always remember for her servant’s heart and the way she selflessly helped take care of my family when my grandparents were nearing the end of their lives (and she still continues to love on everyone around her in such a special way).

You don’t see pieces like this one too often in the world of little girls clothing. So many things are just cookie cutter items, but this one is just the opposite. You can tell in every stitch that it’s made with such love and care and has this wonderful handmade charm about it. The dainty lace detail at the top is so lovely and adds an extra feminine touch and I can’t wait for warm summer days when Harper can wear it as just a little sunsuit. For now, it would be adorable paired with with tights and a sweater, too.

Debbie also surprised me with some cute “bummie shorts,” which I’m so excited for Harper to have. She didn’t have anything like these and they’ll be perfect for play dates at the park! There is a variety of fun patterns to choose from, but I have the “Tacos” and “Foraged Peony” and I love them! Pair them with a simple tee shirt, a complimenting onesie, or a little cardigan!

Thanks so much to Debbie from Southern Fabrics Boutique for providing the items featured in this post. As always, all opinions are my own.
