Mama Bear Sew Shop feature + giveaway

If you know us in real life, you know that Eloise and I are obsessed with owls.  "Owl" was one of Eloise's first words, and the first animal sound she could make. :) When I found mama bear sew shop, I fell in love. Amanda, owner and creative maker of mama bear sew shop, makes the most beautiful soft animals and dolls, and we are in love with the Mrs. Owl she made for us.  Her love and dedication to her Etsy shop is so obvious, down to the smallest detail. Our Mrs. Owl is made out of linen and her face is made out of lace... also who else is crazy about linen?!  She has the sweetest, softest wings and her outfit just pulls her whole vintage look together. Amanda is so creative, so if you have a special request she will exceed your expectations. 

I have been connecting with Amanda for a few weeks and absolutely love her heart and have loved getting to know her. I asked her a few questions about her process (below) and I also am hosting a giveaway with her on Instagram! So go enter for a chance to win $30 to her shop :)

Q: Have you always imagined you would be a creative maker?
A: Yes! I've always been artsy and make most of my gifts for friends and family. I always thought I'd eventually open an Etsy shop, but thought it would be crochet/knit items, perhaps for babies. I never imagined it would be a doll shop.
Q: What is your favorite thing about being a small shop owner?
A: I absolutely love connecting with my customers! I love the reactions and feedback on Instagram and I love seeing photos of my creations with the little ones. It is SO heartwarming after spending hours creating and sewing, knowing that it's being loved on. 
Q: Where do you get inspiration?
A: Oohhhh lots of places! Mostly through Instagram. This community is filled with so much talent. It is very inspiring seeing other creatives and shops. I love looking at baby/kids photography and imagining what my creation would look like in that setting and I imagine all the details like colors, patterns, fabric choices.
