Phoenix Mom Entrepreneur Celebrates Her Competition in People Magazine

Share Article

Killeen Cornish, mom entrepreneur, sees the positive side of a competing product appearing in People magazine and reaps the benefits of the idea getting national media.

The name says it all for Killeen Cornish – HandMade4Baby Custom Shopping Cart Covers are lusciously padded, handmade versions of a similar product featured in this week's People Magazine.

"While it pulls at my heart strings to see another mass-produced version in People Magazine selling millions, I feel empowered that it is such a great idea that a major magazines took notice!" shares 38 year-old owner Cornish. "Each of our shopping cart covers are handmade with every attention spent on the details. I want a gift you can be proud of giving, one that won't fray after weekly use. We also generously pad our cart covers which the other brand does not."

Killeen invented her product out of necessity, as many mom entrepreneurs do. Her mission was to provide a useful, quality product that promotes a healthy environment for young children in places that would expose them to germs – particularly grocery carts. Cornish's custom shopping cart covers are designed with a safety strap, front pocket, toy loop, elastic adjustment, and generous padding. She adds, "Plus they conveniently fold into an attractive tote bag or pillow. Our fabrics are the highest quality and we can even sew a custom cover with a customer's choice of fabric."

Begun as a way to stay home with her daughters, Killeen's company, "Sew Original" combines her passion for sewing and a desire to help support her family financially. "It is the best of both worlds," states Cornish. "I am available for my children whenever they need me and I am using my creativity to make money."

Leading mom entrepreneur expert and publisher of Mom's Business Magazine, Nancy Cleary, states, "More than ever before in history mothers are empowered to be at home while running successful internet businesses. There no longer exists the difficult decision of choosing family or career – we can have both and be at home."

Cornish admits she will never reach the auspicious heights of the entrepreneur featured in People magazine who grossed almost two million in sales last year, but she has big plans for her sewing business and for more beautiful, custom products handmade for baby by one loving mother to another.
