Hello Sunday Andrea Genevieve

Hello Sunday was founded by me, Andrea Genevieve in 2014, after a few years of dreaming about how I could become a maker, instead of working in the corporate world.
Today Hello Sunday offers coordinating pajama separates for hip littles size 12 months- 4 T.
Everything in this shop is handmade with love in my home on a 30- year old sewing machine passed down from my mom.

The Story

I learned how to sew when I was 8 years old, but never really got into sewing as a hobby until I had my son in 2012. At that same time my friends started asking me to make custom baby accessories after seeing the bold modern patterns I used for my own son Gabriel Knox. This inspired me to launch my first Etsy business, Stitch Happy Boutique, in 2013 after I was laid off from my job in corporate marketing. It grew wildly within 6 months and is still open for custom nursery bedding orders. I also sell small items at The Natural Baby Company here in Austin, TX and Spruce in Houston, TX through Stitch Happy.

The Name

The idea for Hello Sunday developed over many weekend mornings spent musing over new business ideas, something we do frequently in our house. Each Sunday we make pancakes from scratch, while listening to jazz music and talking about life and news.  Most of the day is spent relaxing in our PJ’s, until we decide on a fun family activity for the afternoon. After my son grew out of his comfy baby sleepers I had a difficult time finding sleepwear for him. I wished there was something modern (without cartoon characters) soft (not polyester) and functional (could be comfortably worn all day long) like on Sunday morning when all you want to do is cook a delicious brunch and enjoy the company of your family. I realized I could make the perfect pajama and Hello Sunday was born.
