     WAHM Bam thank you… Work at Home Moms!! It’s the Work At Home Mom Spotlight! Otherwise known as WAHMs, this series highlights amazing Mom run shops that I can’t wait to share! Why are WAHMs so awesome? Unlike a big company with a sales person, an internet person, a public relations/social media person, shipping, a sewing shop etc. and customer service…a WAHM does all of these things by herself. In addition to running every aspect of a company, these ladies (and gents, I’m sure there are a few gents) create and run their own businesses from start to finish.
     This feature is on  Sherry’s Creative Stitches. An embroiderer by trade, Sherry’s Creative Stitches can take any ordinary item and transform it. Her creations are amazing. The “Surrender Ye Boobies” design seen here can be created on a diaper, shirt, bib or just about anything you can imagine. While she’s currently in the process of testing and designing her own diaper pattern, you can do a send your own diaper (SYOD) to have a diaper from your favorite brand customized. As you’ll see below (on these diaper testers) her work is fantastic and I’m proud to place these on my little fluff bums! Check out her shop profile:

     To give you an idea of the size of this design, I’ve placed this test-diaper with two commercial brands. The green is a Bum Genuis 4.0, the plaid is a Rumparooz and right in the middle is Sherry’s work. As you can see, the embroidery is a perfect size, it’s centered and impeccble. 

     How does she do it? As you can see below, the embroidery has a lot of inside-diaper work. I turned the black diaper inside out so you can see. The embroidery is sandwiched between two layers of PUL (same fabric waterproof diaper cover is made from) to both protect it from diaper contents and to prevent the diaper from leaking. The opening of the diaper itself allows access for this work to be done, but can easily be completed on covers as well.       
     Other products she embellishes include hats, bags, shirts, backpacks, tea towels and even custom baseballs. The list is pretty endless. Designs are first created on a computer and brought to life by Sherry and her sewing equipment. If there’s a design you really want, like a licensed character etc., she can get the pattern through purchase if available. Everything from birth statistic designs, names, birthdays, Holidays…really, check out her Facebook Page to see more photos of some of her work!

      As the proud Mama to 3 babies of her own, Sherry operates out of beautiful St. Augustine Florida. Sherry grew up watching her Mom sew for all 8 of her brothers and sisters! She fell in love with Embroidery in highschool, but went years without a machine. It wasn’t until her husband surprised her with one for Mother’s Day that she began creating. Her business started when she embroidered a personalized Dinosaur diaper for a friend. From that point her business has continued to grow and blossom. Currently licensed and developing her own line of diapers, she continues her work on pre-made items like SYOD (send your own diaper) but is currently developing testers for her own brand (I hope to be on that short list!)
     Make sure to visit Sherry’s Creative Stitches on Facebook and if you don’t see something you like (which I find pretty impossible), make sure to message her. Chances are she’s up late working on designs after her babies go to bed. Here are some of her previous works below.

   As always thanks for stopping by! I appreciate a follow on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram (when being chosen for reviews many companies care about numbers) and love to network on Google and LinkedIn.Want to work together? Contact MamaBananasAdventures@gmail.com.
