Designers of the Day

 We hope you are enjoying meeting our designers! Be sure to check out the BIG giveaway we are doing for our next launch in the post below!

 My name is Jeanne and I am a SAHM to 4 amazing kids. I first started sewing as a little girl when my mom would let me play with her sewing machine and make Barbie clothes out of fabric scraps, paper towels, Kleenex, and anything my imagination would allow. For many years I mainly made quilts and Halloween costumes. About 5 years ago I started sewing for my kids again and haven’t stopped since! For several years I have enjoyed being a pattern tester for some incredible designers like Carla Crim (The Scientific Seamstress) and Jennifer Paganelli of Sis Boom, Lisa Williams’ Funktional Threads, and recently Erin’s Designs. I love all things Disney and feel like I always need to be planning my next trip. I love being able to create fun clothes for kids and enjoy both machine applique and hand applique.


Hello, my name is Melissa and I am the owner/designer of MM Creations. Not a very creative name but it is my initials. I started selling under this name when I made jewelry back in Junior High, so I just stuck with it when I branched out to craft fairs.I was raised an Army Brat and moved every few years as a child. Minnesota has been my home for the last 14 years. I am the Mom to one 11 year old daughter. Who is admittedly spoiled. I have three sisters who have graced me with 9 nieces and nephews.

I always dabbled in sewing but did not really dive into it until I stumbled upon a thread on the disboards in 2009 that inspired me to design for my daughter. And next thing I know I am creating for others! It has become my true passion. I love creating and sewing it truly has brought me peace and joy.

                                             KK's Creations

Hi, my name is Kristen and I am the designer at Kk’s Creations. I have been monogramming and embroidering for about 6 years now, buying my first embroidery machine when my children were very little. This led me to learn how to sew. I would see all the beautiful boutique clothing and think I could just make that. I love the creative outlet it gives me, and being in my sewing room gives me peace and an escape from everything else. My site name is attributed to my niece, because she called me Kk when she was little. I joined the Disboutiquers when we were planning a trip to Disney and I knew I wanted to make custom outfits for my children. They were and are a wonderful group, and I am very proud to be a part of it.

Todays Featured Designers!

 Hi! My name is Jenny and I'm the designer behind Princess Pie Bowtique. I have a beautiful daughter, Myca Mouse, and she was born with this insane head of curly hair....fabulous! I began making her korkers and small bows and a few years ago, my family and friends gave me the support I needed to take my creativity to the next level.

Myca and I have an insane passion for all things Disney and that has been the inspiration for most of the designs I create. To me, there is nothing better than getting the chance to design a beautiful OTT piece to compliment a gorgeous Disney custom outfit. I consider what the designers in the Disney Customs Design world create to be art. It's not just clothes or accessories.... it's wearable creations that come out of these amazing ideas and ispirations...♥

Hi, I'm Jessica Hagan from MommyMade Boutique. I am the proud mommy of three children and I love to sew. I have always loved being creative but actually started sewing in middle school. My grandfather bought me my first sewing machine when I was 12 and I have been sewing ever since. As an adult, I began sewing customs for my children to wear on our annual Disney trips. All the extra time and attention my children would get in the parks would be more than worth the time it took to sew their outfits! My daughter was even featured in MouseEars magazine as mini- Mary Poppins! In 2007, I found a whole community of people out there who did the same thing I did! They are the Disboutiquers and through their support and encouragement, I began selling customs. I don't always have the time to take custom orders because I am currently substitute teaching and working on my Masters degree in teaching literacy. However, participating in The Main Street Boutiques Launch has been an amazing blessing, and I am so proud to be part of such a talented group of designers! Thank you all for your continued support!

  Hello! I'm Carol Frank, the creative engineer behind RubberduckyRanch. I started sewing my girls customs in 2008 and have been finding new ways to bring my creations to life ever sicne. I found out that I love making bags! Wristlets & crossbody bags. Princess inspired, movie themed and more. I sell ready to ship bags. I also have a few digitized designs on my etsy page also named RubberduckyRanch. I also work full time as a mother of 3 beautiful, smart & funny girls. And I have a out of the home full time job as well - I am a RN in a pediatric ER. We live in southern New Jersey but our hearts live in Disney!
 Just Sew Adorable Boutique
Just Sew Adorable Boutique” was created out of my love of sewing. I’m Marianne Landolfi, and the loves of my life are my family, friends and sewing. I started sewing for my dolls when I was a little girl. I married my High School sweetheart over 40 years ago. I’m the mom of three, and a nana to nine.  

When my family was young I made almost all of their clothing. Every Halloween my kids had handmade costumes. I would love to hear my kids tell their friends “my mom made this”. I remember, to save money I made all of their clothes for our first trip to Disney World. When my sewing skills went from homemade to handmade I was asked by friends to make their wedding gowns, as well as gowns for their bridal parties. I had such fun shopping with my daughter to find the perfect fabric for her semi-formal dresses, and gowns for her proms. Window treatments, and home dec. sewing became a new passion when we bought bigger house. I wanted everything to be custom, and to coordinate.  

Finally we were Blessed with grandchildren. That’s when the sewing fun really began! Having the chance to sew for my grandkids, life doesn’t get much better than that! A couple of years ago, I was encouraged by my daughter to sell custom clothing. It was one of the best decisions I have made. I love when a mom sends me a picture of their little one wearing one of my designs. It makes me smile! Main Street Boutique is a unique group of friends, and craftspeople that encourage, and motivate each other daily. I am honored to be a part of such an awe-inspiring group.

Howdy! I am Lori, the designer and busy mommy behind The Enchanted Pixie Dust Boutique. I am a Disney loving, homeschooling mommy to four beautiful blessings- three precious boys and one princess! I have always enjoyed being creative and crafty (thanks mom!), but I didn't start sewing until about six years ago when I was pregnant with my first baby. My poor husband gained more weight than I did during that pregnancy and consequently began busting zippers and buttons on his pants and dress shirts. Instead of buying bigger sizes, he had me learn how to repair the damage. Having never even touched a sewing machine before, it was slow going at first, but before long I had figured out the basics. When I found out that my third baby was going to be a girl, I branched out into sewing clothing! Shortly after that, while planning our second Disney trip, I was thrilled to find there was a group of people on the internet who shared my two biggest obsessions, sewing and Disney! After seeing their amazing creations I purchased my first embroidery machine not long after we got back from that trip (about 3 years ago now), and have used it almost daily since then. I am very excited and honored to be a part of this group. I love the creative outlet that sewing gives me and look forward to sharing my creations with you!

Designer of the Day

Come along and meet a trio of fabulous designers, and all aroud lovely ladies!!  Meet Sarah, Jessica, and Jen!

Girly Girls Beads and Bows

Welcome to the World of Girly Girls Beads and Bows!

Hello, my name is Sarah and I'm a Disney custom-a-holic! I have 3 very girly little girls. We are a home schooling, Custom loving, Disney-fied family! While making bows and jewelry for my own girls, I discovered how a pretty little bow can make their eyes light up. I was hooked! Now I love creating special bows and beaded accessories to share with other little girls.
Everything I use is hand made. I source many of my supplies and accents from other WAHMs. Each item is made with love for your Girly Girls.
I am currently working on bringing my love of all things Disney to other families by becoming a Disney Travel Agent. I get so excited during the planning of a trip, it's the little things that can make a trip so magical and I hope to bring that to families booking their own Magical Vacations.

My name is Jessica and I am a work at home mom. I've been married 12 years and have a 10 year old son. I started sewing about two years before my son was born and haven't stopped since. I love making creations for girls but even more so for boys since they seem to be less popular. My love for Disney shines through in my work but even a trip to the mall sometimes calls for the perfect custom outfit!
(Jessica is well known and loved for her amazing hand applique work!)


My name is Jen, and I am the creative force behind Molly Claire Boutique. I taught myself to sew back in 2008 after stumbling upon an amazingly talented group of people. They were creating adorable custom outfits for their trips to Disney. After scrolling through pages of fabulous photos, I was hooked! I knew I wanted my two princesses, Molly and Claire, to have cute customs too!
 I enlisted the help of my mom and mother-in-law to help me for that first trip in October 2008, and between the 3 of us, my girls had their own custom boutique outfits for every day of our trip. The rest, as they say, is history. I kept sewing for my kids (including my own little prince, born in 2010), started participating in Big Gives for kids and their families attending WDW on Wish Trips, and even branched out into machine embroidery. In 2011, I became brave enough to sell to others. My biggest delight is in seeing pictures of smiling faces on their magical vacations wearing Molly Claire Boutique creations. I’d love to spread the joy to you, too!
Thanks for taking the time to get to know the Main Street Boutique designers!  Stay tuned for a fun giveaway from one of our fabulous designers!
