About

There is something so special and unique about handmade gifts. A piece of the creator is in every stitch. Many of my creations are a little on the silly side because that is how our house is ran...on love and laughter. When a child receives a silly faced robot or a snaggly toothed pirate as a gift from my shop, I can only hope they at first smile and laugh...and then become to love their gift. Or when they see their own name on a pillow, it allows them to feel pride in ownership.

My name is Amy Averitte (pronounced like favorite without the f)...which is why I decided to name my biz fAveritte creations! I love to work with color and patterns on fabric. I allow the fabric to encourage me in what I should create with it.

All of my creations are my own and not from any patterns. This makes them such unique gifts! I love to just lay out…

All of my creations are my own and not from any patterns. This makes them such unique gifts! I love to just lay out my piece of fabric and draw out my creation with a Sharpie marker which indeed makes each piece one of a kind and no two will be exactly alike. I create, sew, cut, package and ship all of my creations all by myself.....well not totally all by myself. Caffeine keeps me company during the fabrication process :)

I first learned to sew about 12 years ago when I worked at a factory that made fire gear and can not thank all of the veteran sewers there enough for teaching me how to sew pockets. I also was in charge of creating patterns for each jacket and pants that needed to be created. This position helped me to understand how pieces of clothing is constructed which has indeed helped me today with my creations.

I started making childrens items a few years ago when I was pregnant with my first child Bane and made all of his nursery decor - a monster theme with primary colors. I created a prayer flag for his room for a fibers art class I had in college and a classmate suggested I should start marketing them and sell them...so that's what got me started on etsy!

My Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Visual Arts Administration with a minor in Graphic Design also help the creations flow.

Happy Creating,
Amy Averitte
