Meet the Maker.

Hi Friend! I’m Kathleen, the seamstress, designer… basically everything behind Meadowcress Boutique.

I hope when you visit me here you find something beautiful to add to your life.

Now a little bit about me :)

I live in Cincinnati with my husband and two babes. We are want to be homesteaders, but apartment living’s got us down. For now we satisfy that craving with sourdough bread, the farmers market and kombucha.

I’m Catholic and a desire to bring that into my work with Meadowcress lead me to start a line of saint-inspired bonnets in addition to my regular selection. Reading through saints stories for inspiration and learning about new saints from you all has been such an amazing faith building experience for me. And I hope that these bonnets and accessories give you the opportunity to share about your faith with others as well.

I truly love getting to share this small piece of myself with you and I hope that the things I make and share are hopeful, helpful and inspiring for you!

What I Do Here.

Here at Meadowcress Boutique I make baby goods from organic linen, organic cotton and upcycled fabric! I started my shop because I turned up empty handed after trying to find affordable, ethically, and sustainably made items for my daughter and my home. After a short stint of thinking that I could just make all of our clothes (and then quickly realizing that I couldn't) I decided that the next best thing would be to make some things, buy other things second hand, and buy new when I had to. I started my shop because I love to sew, and I love a good deal. What I hope you find here are ethical and sustainable items that make even your wallet smile. :)

Why Organic Cotton?

All of the items in my shop are made from GOTS certified organic cotton (If they aren’t made from preloved fabric that is!)

GOTS is the stamp of approval given to textiles that have not been treated with harmful chemicals and that have been made in a safe environment by workers who have been fairly compensated for their work.

This is of the utmost importance to me, as I strive in my own life to do what I can to shop this way myself!
