First Footprints

Call us to take your baby's footprints to create a unique gift for family, and friends, or to keep for yourself.  Prints of newborns are taken with archival ink pads and placed on fabric.  It is then embroidered with your baby's name, birth date, weight, length, and time of birth.  It can be individualized even further with poems or designs.  You, grandparents, and friends will cherish these for a lifetime.


Gift certificates are available for purchase.  Just call and ask us. 913-262-8001


At Birth (Covid protocols may prevent this at your hospital - just ask them if it is possible, since photographers are usually allowed.)

Call us after you deliver your baby, and we'll come right to the hospital or birthing center to take the first footprints. We aim for a 24-48 hr turnaround time so you can take them home with you.  If you'd like to include other children, let us know and we'll come when they are there. Embroidery can be customized. 


Sibling and Family Prints

A new baby is a time of celebration for your entire family.  We have several embroidery designs for you to choose from that can include the handprints of the rest of the family. Handprints show up better with fabric paint.  While we have never had any issues with allergies, there was one report on the internet of a child who had a reaction and was allergic to eggs.  Please let us know if your child has any allergies.


First Footprints Display Options

We can frame your first footprints, sew them onto a blanket, or create a quilted wall hanging.  Wall hangings can also be connected to create an artistic piece for your wall.  This also allows you to add to it as you have more children or want prints as your child/children age.  You may choose from a wide variety of background fabrics, threads, and designs to match your decor or taste. Many embroidery designs are also available.



For no additional charge, we scan the first footprints we take and keep them on file.  If you should have a fire, tornado, or theft, we would replace it for free (with proof of loss).  If you wish to order anything else later, you can.  We would then print them on fabric and add the embroidery.




We all have experience working with special needs children and teens. 


Sandy worked as an RN for over 20 years, many of those as a high-risk labor and delivery nurse.  After taking thousands of first footprints, She discovered families loved receiving these as gifts, with the embroidery work.  She wanted to be able to offer them to other families as keepsakes.


We are committed to providing the best for your children at all times.  We work with them while you watch. This program is available within a 35 mile radius of Grapeland.  You may bring your infant to our shop if you are outside the perimeter or your hospital doesn't allow for visitors with some COVID restrictions.

Examples of designs 

We have many more designs and can match fabric and threads to your nursery theme.  Call us as soon as you know you would like to order one so we can spend time deciding on the details prior to the baby's birth.
