In most of the pictures of me as a little girl, I'm wearing clothes lovingly made by my mother. She was an accomplished and creative seamstress, and this shop is dedicated to her memory...I was blessed to have been taught by the best!

I started learning hand-stitching at age four...anyone remember "sewing cards"? I still think anything that can be sewn by hand, should be, and I incorporate a lot of that somewhat lost art in my creations. My baby quilts are never touched by machine...they are 100% hand stitched.

Having years of sewing experience, I'm sure you will notice a high quality of workmanship. All my fabrics are pre-washed, and all seams professionally finished.

I notice many etsy artists are proud of having smoke-free and pet-free environments, and although my studio is proudly smoke-free, my cockapoo muse, Toby, is often under the sewing table, if not directly under my feet!

So, I hope you enjoy your shopping experience here...please spread the word about Sweet Baby Couture...after all, a well-dressed baby is almost as cute as a naked one!
