Elise Hooper's Profile
As a little girl, I loved to play with dolls and stuffed animals and my interest in needlecrafts was born out of my desire to make them clothing, furniture, houses (yes, I tried--unsuccessfully-- to make a Victorian dollhouse!). While in college, I worked in the theater department's costume room as a seamstress and learned how to sew and construct whalebone corsets, petticoats and all kinds of interesting designs.
Motherhood led me back into sewing and I began to create clothes and toys for my two girls and for our friends. The personalized blankets started off as my "go to" gift for friends. Soon I began getting emails from friends of friends who wanted them. Before I knew it, my Etsy shop launched in June 2009 and I've been fortunate to be surrounded by family and friends who are very supportive of my work.
Every baby and child...
