After years of being a Behavior Specialist and Special Education Teacher, I sew for sanity. My two babies (ages 3 and 2) make everything in the past seem so ordinary and what lies in front of us as amazing. And chaotic.

At Nico Designs we create each item with design, style and functionality in mind. We strive to create products that are eco friendly by utilizing a combination of new, repurposed, recycled or upcycled materials. As we strive to understand our role as stewards of our planet we will adapt our manufacturing to be as lean as possible. This means we use our scraps/remnants in other projects or donate them to keep them from a landfill.
She also donates a portion of her sales to help fund childhood cancer research. Proceeds from the sale of select items will go to the Ronald McDonald House in Temple. And 10% of sales from the other items will go to MD Anderson Cancer Hospital in Houston.
So cute, who doesn’t need a valentines day surprise!
I like this tote! It would make a good knitting tote.
