Baby Mobile Company Keeps Up with Demand Using Custom Dies 

About sunshine & Vodka

Sunshine & Vodka is not only the name of Paulette Gollan's baby mobile company, it also happens to be a list of her two favorite things.

"People always ask where Sunshine & Vodka came from," Paulette said. "I tell them that I decided to call it after the stuff that make me happy."

For the last three years Paulette has been designing and sewing whimsically-airy baby mobiles on Etsy. "Things took off so quickly I couldn't believe it!" she said.


With orders piling up, she found herself buried under bolts of fabric with only a set of sheers to cut her way out. Paulette was familiar with dies and die presses, so she began exploring if it was possible to have her own patterns placed in a die board.


She reached out to Custom Shape Pros and ordered several custom steel-rule dies as well as an AccuQuilt GO! BIG Electric Fabric Cutter. Since her purchase, she's been able to keep up with business.

"My first year I did 29 mobiles," said Paulette, "Last year I made 367."
