Hi, I'm Halliki and I'm the maker behind Heijka Handmade. I'm originally from Estonia. Now living in small country town in Central Wheatbelt, WA with my husband and two kids.
I have always been a creative person and I feel like I have to be busy all the time. Three years ago when I stayed home with my first child, to keep me sane, I started to crocheting and knitting. I made jumper or two. Even considered maybe I should try to become crochet designer.
Year into being a full-time mum I was given a old sewing machine. My first sewing projects were cloth liners & beanies. Soon after that I decided to buy my own sewing machine. Beginning of the last year I started to make baby clothes & cloth nappies because I learnt I was expecting my second child. Happy times didn't last long.. sadly, I went through two miscarriages... my sewing corner started to be my safe space. Sewing made me happy - it was part of my healing process. Slowly from hobby it grow into a small business.
My most popular nappy is based on MLS pattern- OSFM nappy with wider reinforced wings. All nappies are coming with extra long anchor insert and booster, both 2 layers of bamboo fleece topped with suede cloth. In custom orders I also offer double row, losfm & newborn nappies.
I have exclusive print what I love with all my heart - LionBaby. Actually there are 3 of them - with teal, pink & yellow background. Lion cub symbolises my angel baby who would turn 1 this August.
It has been amazing year and seeing my nappies in the wild makes my heart melt.
