heimatgefΓΌhle: a german word that speaks volumes!

The gingham in this matilda sister set tucks at my ❀️ heart, transporting me back to childhood summers spent in bavaria.

The gorgeous floral print reminds me of meadows full of wild 🌼 flowers tucked between mountain tops β›° …

… and brings back the sound of cow bells πŸ„ that is a constant in the air!

I can’t wait for my girls to be twirling their way through germany this summer … πŸ›©


mommy and me …

Building confidence in little girls and empowering them is of such tremendous value! And that is why my favorite part about this dress was making a little girl’s vision come to life! πŸ’• She had something specific in mind. She was set on colors and fabric. She wasn’t swayed! 

She got exactly what she envisioned and now feels like nothing can stop her!

And THAT is why I do what I do…. 😍✌🏻️ 

PS: Mommies shouldn’t have to feel left out right? πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‚ I had a blast creating this “matching” Mama dress. πŸ’™πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘¦

family business!Β 

If you were ever curious, rest assured, Nina’s Flying Needle is truly a family business. 😍 

This past weekend, my sisters and my brother-in-law helped us move and clear out furniture. What would have been days worth of work for the hubby and I was done in a mere matter of hours thanks to their amazing help! πŸ™ŒπŸ» 

In the evenings, my little guy  assisted us in putting new shelving units together to create a whole new sewing space for me πŸ”¨πŸ”§πŸš§ 

My other little ones kept busy helping me by sorting and moving and organizing fabrics all weekend. ❀️  

The result?! 

A full weekend worth of manual labor and I *finally* have an organized studio.πŸ˜πŸ‘ŠπŸ»πŸ™πŸ»β€οΈ

are you ready for this?

Look at this adorable, matching big sister/new baby brother homecoming outfit that is heading to Hawaii today β€οΈπŸ’™.

Those raccoons had me at hello! 😍 

The Riley dress has a racer tank top and the bum on those maxaloones is just too much …

Now, if only I could photograph the softness of this amazing fabric! It’ll be absolutely perfect for those Hawaiian summers πŸŒΊβ˜€οΈ (or any summer really if you are looking for an excuse πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‰). 

Saturday morning …

A behind the scenes peak: I am doing my least favorite thing this morning – paperwork. If you’re still wondering what CPSC compliancy entails, this is sooo much of that. Researching what materials I can use and in some instances what certifications I may need (have the buttons I wanted to use on those dresses be tested for lead? What about those soft minky, flannel or terry fabrics that may be perfect for baby bibs? Did those fabric manufacturers test for flammability? What about the lead levels in those snaps?) It can be overwhelming, but I want to offer safe and reliable products to YOU!
