The Story of The Little Nest
Since being a little girl myself, I've always been obsessed with creating things with my hands, but the impulse became even more important when I was pregnant with our firstborn and nesting, eager to make some things for his corner of our shared bedroom. The business itself was birthed when I became a new mom, and longed to have something for ME again. It started as a few stitches as my baby napped, and eventually "a few" became too many for our home. I began making them for friends, and eventually selling. When I became pregnant with our second born, I taught myself to sew, mostly for selfish reasons as I wanted to make things for her, but again, little babies grow fast, and I wanted to expand my business.
Now, I continue to make physical products with my hands, but I also get so much joy from teaching others some of the skills I've learned as a stay at home mom, creative entrepreneur.
Through the pandemic we had our third child, and my business took a backseat while I navigated life with 2 kids at home with postpartum anxiety. It's so exciting to be creativing again, and I'm feeling so refreshed to get back to this inspiring work!
Thankyou for being here, and for allowing me to create from my authentic heart.
The “you are enough” embroidery kit was just what I needed to start my embroidery journey. The instructions were clear and easy to follow, the colours are stunning and the message is so needed in our day and age. I couldn’t be happier with my product!
I love my little project bag! It's the perfect size for one skein projects and it's cute as a button. Melissa also made it custom and super quickly and the quality is fabulous! Thanks Melissa for the beautiful piece!
I'm absolutely in love with the custom piece!! Melissa is so great to work with and it was done in a very reasonable amount of time. Can't wait for the next excuse to buy another!
Just beautiful! Melissa is such a fun person and her work is stunning! The quality is extraordinary.
We are over the moon excited to hang this beautiful piece of hand embroidered art in our daughters nursery. Wrapped with care and delivered in great time.
Wonderful to collaborate with, I gave her some of my story and how I envision it through an embroidery hoop. She created something better than what I even imagined. Definitely a lovely piece on my wall.
Absolutely love my necklace from this lovely shop.
Such impeccable handiwork! Such a beautiful heirloom for our nursery!
