Bringing Home Baby: Elephant Boppy Cover

Elephant Boppy Cover
When I found out that little baby Rasmussen was a boy, I started searching high and low for cute bedding, blankets, and boppy covers fit for a little guy. I found it so much easier to find cute pink and purple everything but it seemed like there were less options for boys that I liked, especially in the big stores like Target and Babies R Us. When I came across this adorable grey elephant Boppy Cover made by Rose of Fashioned By Rose, I knew I had to have it. My heart does a little happy dance for all things grey and white and those elephants are just too cute for words. 
I absolutely love supporting small businesses whenever I can, and after getting to know Rose a little bit, I am so excited to feature her shop on my blog. She is the sweetest, most geninune person who touched my heart when she messaged me to let me know she prays over each item she sews, praying for the person who she's making it for. When she told me she had been praying for me and our little baby boy, I felt tears well up in my eyes because that was the time we were going through extra tests and MRI's to take a closer look at a measurement that was off on baby R. 
Rose's story of how she started her business is really inspiring.  She has been sewing since she was eight after learning from her Grandma. When she was going through a divorce, she had a need to supplement her income so she started altering clothing after work. When one of her daughters wanted to enter a beauty pageant at school, she couldn't afford to buy or rent her dress so she hand made one.A few years later one of her a friends daughter-in-law asked her to make a boppy pillow cover and diaper bag for her baby shower and when she did, everyone fell in love with them and encouraged her to put them on Etsy. She did, and quickly made enough to pay her car insurance that month. 

Rose has always felt the call to be a missionary and lamented the fact that her life was not allowing her to be where she thought the Lord wanted her to be. He showed her  that she could be a missionary right from her own home. She prays as she is making each item for the spiritual, physical and mental well-being of the person who will receive it. Rose also belongs to a quilt guild where they make charity quilts and do other service projects that involve sewing/quilting.
