Thank you so much for stopping by! I’m so happy to share a little bit of my heart and home with you!
ABOUT em and ellie –
I started em and ellie, formerly mama & little e, in 2013 after two dear friends, from completely different circles, commissioned me to make baby gifts for them within days of each other. I was a full time teacher when I started mama & little e, so all of my sewing was done on the weekends and ridiculously late at night. 🙂 As much as I loved teaching, as of July 1, 2017, mama & little e is my full time job. It’s been so wonderful watching this “baby” of mine grow, and I can’t wait to share a little bit of my shop with you! Thanks for taking this giant (scary!!!) step with me!
In 2019, I gave our name and logo a little bit of a facelift. “mama & little e” never rolled off the tongue for me, but I hated to ditch a name that included my son. I saw it abbreviated several times as “m&le” and LOVED the way it sounded phonetically, so “em and ellie” it became. I swapped the florals in my previous logo for a small bee to represent my daughter, and now I have a name and logo that fit perfectly.
Shortly after the facelift, our family received orders to Okinawa, Japan. We have just finished unpacking! For right now, my business sewing will take a bit of a back seat, but I am so excited to continue sharing my makes AND our new adventures with you all!

Care instructions for almost all items is wash cold on gentle cycle; line dry.

Sizing is based on your specific measurements. The second best option is your sizes in a brand that fits you well, so I can pull measurements from their existing charts, but true measurements are the best way to ensure a great fit!
