Hand-Embroidery Really Is “Simply Adorable”

When mother of two Kim Reeves was placed on bed rest for her 2009 pregnancy she took that opportunity to teach herself new crafts.  Her new passion for hand-embroidery quickly became a favorite. What started as a hobby that would benefit her new arrival turned into Kim’s business Simply Adorable Kids. Kim’s business is an inspiration to all of us and especially to those crafters who have found their inner designer since becoming mom.

Interested in giving the gift of hand-embroidery as a shower gift? Simply Adorable also offers gift certificates. After all, you never know if mommy to be has a change of heart on baby’s name before the big day!

    Great idea to provide gift certificates. A lot of my friends want to be surprised with their babies’ gender and it’s typically difficult to get them personalized gifts. At least the gift certificate enables them to get the gifts they want when they have their little ones named :)

    At first I thought you had the name of this business wrong, but then I realized that it is actually a copy of long-existing I am sure that many other customers of Tiny Sprouts like myself will be confused!? The products, pictures, and even website seem to be identical-all but the name of the company. Whatever happened to originality? This is sad.

    I am really shocked to see that Kim Reeves totally “ripped off” her entire business model from Tiny Sprouts. She is using what appears to be the same basic clothing pieces, the same color threads, the same patterns and sayings on the clothing, and even some of the exact same names! Her website is suspiciously similar to Tiny Sprouts also. All of her pictures are displayed in a similar manner, and the children are posed and photographed almost identical to Tiny Sprouts photos. Tiny Sprouts has been around for years and it seems as if Kim took the innovative ideas of Tiny Sprouts and passed them off as her own. Aren’t there laws against this?

    I agree. It does look strikingly similar to ! All of the products are the exact same. Tinysprouts started almost a decade ago but this business started just last year- I’m so confused-isn’t that illegal?!

    Hmmm . . . sad that there are people out there that like to steal an idea rather than create their own. I am a HUGE believer in supporting the “original” company. I will continue to shop at Tiny Sprouts and support Tracey the owner/creator of

    dear project nursery,
    i’m a big fan of your blog! it is so fun and so relevant. thanks for making an effort to provide gift certificates for hand-embroidered kids clothes. unfortunately, simply adorable has taken advantage of a small business and duplicated owner/creator tracey’s hard and much loved work. i understand healthy competition but i don’t understand outright thievery. i hope PROJECT NURSERY will check out the original hand-embroidered goodness that Tiny Sprouts offers. Thanks again for being a wonderful blog that gives so much to moms!

    I love that you are promoting home made businesses. But I too love and hate that you are promoting a website that is completely copying every aspect of her business. Please print a retraction so that we know you will not be supporting this type of theft in the future. And maybe do a feature on the Original hand embroidered wonder that is tiny sprouts. Her stuff is amazing and it is truly the real thing.

    I was confused to see these designs on your blog under a different name. As much as I wish there were two kindred spirit entrepreneur women out there making ridiculously cute hand-embroidered baby clothes, I am saddened to see that this person – who knows the Tiny Sprouts owner – has stolen her ideas and now proudly takes credit for them as though they are her own. That is not Simply Adorable, it is Simply Stealing.

    It just goes to show that fiends can turn their back on you over greed (money). Tiny started their business long before Simply Adorable was even dreamed up, and if Tiny Sprouts had not been born this would not have happened. It is sad to think what our world is coming to when your own friends stab you in the back. Vengance is mind, says the Lord. We know how this will turn out in the end.

    Dear Project Nursery,
    Thank you for always sharing such great products & ideas on your site! I’m sure you were not aware of this when you posted about Simply Adorable Kids but there is reason to question the inspiration of this company. Sadly I don’t think the owner received her inspiration upon ‘becoming a mom’ but rather when she received a gift from the owner of Tiny Sprouts, the original company of hand embroidered goodness. I know others have commented regarding this & I hope you will have the opportunity to research further & help rectify what unfortunately has become a difficult situation. I hope the owner of Simply Adorable Kids will not wait another second to turn a wrong into a right. It is never too late & what a great teachable moment for all of our ‘adorable kids’ out there! I believe everybody makes mistakes but it’s how we respond to those mistakes that makes the difference.
    ‘It is the highest form of self-respect to admit our errors & mistakes & make amends for them. To make a mistake is only an error in judgment, but to adhere to it when it is discovered shows infirmity of character.’ Dale E. Turner
    Hoping for the best & thanks again for being such a fun site Project Nursery!

    Gary Hopwood,
    I’ve always heard someone who judges others and labels traits on others, especially ones they do not know – actually contain those traits him/herself. For example, Gary says XXX or XXXs are backstabbers or are driven by greed; hmm, obviously Gary must be that way himself or he is trying to manipulate others by stating something bad about them. Nice Christian behavior; not.

    Don’t you people have anything better to do but pick on someone? What’s the point. Let it be. Live, love and laugh.

    This is Kim The owener of Simply Adorable Kids. I can not believe the terrible things that some people have said about me, and I’m the bad person??? I don’t understand how people can comment on things and do not fully know what they are talking about. Yes, I did recieve a gift from Tiny Sprouts. I was on bed-rest for months and months with a very stressful and difficult pregnancy. It was my favorite gift. I wanted to start making gifts for people that made me feel the same way. Hand-embroidery has been around for years and years, it is a very old craft. I remember my Mom doing it when I was a kid and using her threads to make bracelets:) I never claimed to have invented hand-embroidering childrens clothing and I dont believe that Tiny Sprouts did either. Originality???? I didn’t realize that only ONE person is allowed to hand-embroider childrens clothing? Every product you buy has something else that is similar. Every business has competition. I figured it would be healthly, not vicious.

    To answer someone question as to if its illegal- No, it is not. My site and logo are of my own design and are copyrighted to me. My photographs are of my own and copyrighted to me, taken by a professional photographer that has never even seen the Tiny Sprouts web site. All of the embroidery is free-hand so this is also of my own design.

    I am now a single mother of two children. Its has been my dream to be able to own my own business. I believe in my dream and what I love to do. Thank you Project Nursery for righting such a great review. I apologize for the people that made awful, negative comments. This is a great site for moms and should be a fun happy place to visit.
