announcing: our new Kansas City tote bags!!! 08.18.2014

We have been DYING to share this fun little addition to our etsy shop…and finally the day is HERE!!!

There’s no doubt that we LOVE the city where we were both born, raised and have chosen as our home to raise our own families. What better way to show our Kansas City pride than to create our very own product to showcase the love? We’ve been wanting to do these for so long; it’s really exciting that we are getting to launch them today!!

They are perfect for just about anything — whether you’re headed to the farmer’s market, the gym, the pool, or simply to use as your everyday bag! These limited edition Kansas City totes come in two styles and there are only 50 of each!

“The Plaza” Kansas City tote is a black canvas bag with metallic gold hot foil  “Kansas City” lettering!

“The Crossroads” Kansas City tote is a natural canvas bag featuring stripes hand-painted by us with screen printed “Kansas City” lettering in black ink. Each bag comes with its very own tassel & pom charm that we’ve handmade including two tassels, beads and yarn poms in various colors. Each charm is a unique color combination — no two bags are alike!!

Get ’em before they’re gone!

Handmade and screen printed in Kansas City! #shopampersand #madeinkc #kansascity

Babikins Magazine feature 01.21.2014

Have you guys seen Babiekins Magazine yet?  We’re pretty much in love. It’s the perfect magazine for a modern mom!!!! The photography is so refreshingly current, the editorial is always worth the read and us adults could learn a few tips from the kid fashion features!  We got a hold of a couple of images from the current issue….it only makes us want to see MORE! are we right?
So needless to say, we were pretty stoked to spy our neon yellow ampersand print in a nursery feature in print issue #3! First of all, incredible job at framing the ampersand print and secondly, we are just flattered to have a print amongst all this cool styling! We sort of want this nursery to be our own room! PS- it’s the nursery of Danni Remender, who happens to be the creative director at Fawn Shoppe, so there’s not surprise that it’s perfection! We’ll be heading out to pick up a physical copy tomorrow to see the rest of this perfect little room! Thanks for the feature, Babiekins!
If you want to pick one up for yourself, the major stores are Target, Barnes and Noble, Books A Million,, the largest bookstore Canada- Chapters and of course Babiekins website! If you find something else you love in there, share it with us and @babiekinsmag with #Babiekinsmagprint3!
