My philosophy behind MandiMoo Designs is to provide "fun, functional, fashionable, affordable" items to women like myself. As a mom on a budget, I know that fashion can't always win out if the price tag is high! With that said, I try to put myself in your shoes. I always ask myself...would I buy it for that price? How does it compare to other similar items? Can I make it myself? (I hope you aren't asking yourself that question, for my sake! haha)
With that said, I am listing a few of the MandiMoo items and what you can purchase them for.*
Victoria purse $40
Diaper bag, messenger style $75
Diaper bag, boxy style $100
Diaper clutch $15
Changing pad $7
COMBO Diaper bag (messenger style), diaper clutch and changing pad $90
COMBO Diaper bag (boxy style), clutch and changing pad $115
Laptop bags starting at $100
Crib sets starting at $100 plus price of materials (this can vary a lot depending on the items you want and the fabric that you purchase. $100 plus materials would include a bumper, crib skirt and basic window treatment...quilts, blackout curtains, rocking chair pillows, etc. would increase cost of both materials and labor)
Shipping is not included. I typically ship Priority Mail, $5-$10 depending on the item.
*Prices subject to change. MandiMoo will verify all prices with a buyer prior to making and shipping an item.
I will be adding more items soon, and will post prices as I do. Please let me know if you have questions!
I will post a picture of the new princess as soon as she arrives and as soon as I can get her dressed in her new gear!
So the purpose of this post is that I L-O-V-E a challenge. Whether it is designing a pattern for a pair of pink cowgirl boots that I will probably use only once (maybe twice...the girl will need some in 3-6 month size, too!) or finding the perfect fabric, or creating the diaper bag a new style of diaper bag (pictures to come soon!), I love new ideas! So if you have a unique project that you have been thinking about but not sure how to proceed, let me know! I love to try new projects, especially when they can be custom, one-of-a-kind treasures.
Disclaimer: Unique projects must be of an arts/crafts/sewing nature, and I make no guarantees that I will be able to make your specific project. I would like the opportunity to think about it, though, and will do my best to make it work. If I can't, I will let you know!

This custom laptop bag is made similarly to the messenger-style diaper bags, only with more structure and padding to accomodate a computer. There is also a hook and loop closure instead of a magnetic snap. Laptop bags are custom-made only to ensure a perfect fit for the size of your computer. There are plenty of pockets for all of your laptop peripherals, as well as keys, wallet, cell phone, etc. As always, your choice of fabric! Laptop bags starting at $100.

Thanks for helping MandiMoo by keeping plastic out of our landfills!
What is a moomy wrap?
A traditional baby wrap (six yards of fabric that you tie around you in different configurations to carry a baby) with the exclusive moomy wrap pocket, which you can see on the right. This exclusive pocket allows you to contain those six yards of fabric (the last thing you need while carrying baby, diaper bag, keys, and groceries is to trip on six yards of fabric!) when you aren't using the wrap.
And when you are using the wrap? Use it to carry your keys, phone, and wallet for a quick jaunt into the store or at the park.
Moomy wraps are made of cotton knit, usually in black or brown (though I can accomodate most other color requests). I also have available organic, cotton/bamboo blends, and recycled fabric. The pocket can be made in a variety of colors and styles--I have done contemporary, classic, even retro cowboy!
This blog is an opportunity to showcase the products that I design and make in my pet-free, smoke-free, usually toy-strewn, absolutely inspiring home studio.
I welcome your comments, and your orders! If you find a product that you like, please call or email me. firstname.lastname@example.org or 785-565-1392. If you like a product, but would like to tweak the fabric/colors, let me know. Most of my work is custom, and I like to make items that express the buyer/recipients personality.
For the time being, I only accept orders via phone or email. In the future I hope to have a website with a shopping cart, and potentially host some purse parties (Susan, you are first on my list!) Until then, look, shop, call/email, and enjoy!
Now for some pictures!
