A Lil’ Etsy Love!


Have you shopped at Etsy yet?  Do you have an Etsy shop of your own?  Are you an Etsy Addict? Can I say yes to all of the above?  I've only shopped a few times on Etsy but I do a LOT of window shopping.  My daughter turned 2 in January and I didn't want to go to the store to buy her cheap plastic crap that may or may not be filled with toxins.  Instead I went to Etsy and made my first purchase (actually I made 2 purchases). A few weeks later I was approached by a sweet momma who wanted to send me one of her adorable products to be featured here.

The Eco Chic has an Etsy Shop!


I'm a little excited - last night I finally did it - I opened my very own Etsy shop!  Right now there is one lonely little dress waiting for the perfect home - but more items will be added soon.  I have 6 more dresses on the sewing machine right now waiting for me to get sewing! You may have seen the dress before - my little one has been spotted in this open backed, reversable, a-line dress before on here.  The peak-a-boo back is perfect for showing off that cute cloth diaper!  The patterns vary and I try to coordinate the colors to match the popular cloth diaper colors. Here are pictures of my first listing on Etsy - available in newborn (0-3 month) size.  I know you may not all have newborns so don't worry - more sizes are coming soon!  AND - I take custom orders too!  Just send me a conversation on Etsy and we'll find the perfect pattern and size for your little darling.  This dress is available from newborn all the way to 24 months - and I'm working on a larger pattern too! ...
