I have been sewing and creating for as long as I can remember. Moy Moy was created in 2005.
This all started when my daughters were young and birthday parties became a staple in our lives. When it was my turn to celebrate a birthday, I didn't want throwaway loot “gifts”. With my sewing and design background, I wanted to make something that was reusable, practical, fun and different. With much thought, I decided to make a monogrammed bag for each of the kids attending and filled it with bubble soap and sidewalk chalk. The kids and the parents loved it and were reusing it.
I decided to call my new business 'Moy Moy' because in Chinese it means’ little sister’ or ‘sister sister.’ I have two younger sisters and two daughters. I thought it was a cute name and it used my maiden name. Along the way I have found out that 'moy' in Dutch means 'beautiful' and in Suomi (Finnish) it means 'bye'.
As my kids grew older, I continued to create more items for birthday parties and/or gifts. Not everything I've designed and sewn has been a winner. All of the items currently on this website has brought a smile or two to the child or parent(s). That is when I know I have succeeded.
When you purchase an item from me, it is me who has cut it, sewn it, ironed it, packaged it etc...I want you to have a one of a kind gift.
