Deerfield, IL, November 15, 2005 --(PR.com
)-- Moms everywhere can now express their personal style in the midst of one of the dirtiest aspects of raising children – changing diapers.
In an era when style means everything and celebrity parenthood graces the covers of national magazines, women have realized that motherhood does not have to forsake fashion. In fact, thanks to one enterprising mom, even the messy chore of wiping a baby’s bottom can be downright chic.
Angie Beermann, a stay-at-home mom, designs stylish handmade baby wipe containers, which are available for sale on her website, www.madebyangie.com.
“I noticed there were lots of customized, handmade baby products out there from burp cloths to wastebaskets,” said Beermann. “I thought the baby wipe container in everyone’s diaper bag was in need of a major makeover.”
She began crafting containers with a variety of fabrics and launched her business in March 2005, when she began selling her wares to friends and through word-of-mouth, at local shows and eventually through her website.
Beermann recently expanded into the wholesale market, selling to online boutiques and to brick and mortar stores. She offers more than three dozen patterns to appeal to different style tastes, including Wild West, Flower Power, Baseball, Pink Toile and others. “I’m always on the lookout for fun, funky new fabrics, and I update my patterns frequently,” she said.
“Everyone loves shopping for babies,” she said. “These make a great gift and a necessary accessory for your own diaper bag.”
Beermann feels good about her product, not just as a business, but also for how it puts a bit of color in each mom’s life. “It's so important that moms retain their sense of style post-baby,” she said. “It's easy to get lost in all that baby stuff, and this is a simple way to express your style while using something that, unfortunately, you need many times daily.”
Angie Beermann is mom to toddler Max and has a second baby on the way. She thanks Sesame Street for keeping him busy while she makes the containers and her husband, Marc, for giving up the dining room table for her 'studio.'
