About

It all started with a diaper bag.

While pregnant with my now-3-year-old daughter, I realized that all of the things I wanted in a diaper bag didn't exist in one place. I had just about given up when a family friend jokingly suggested that I just make one.
Well, I'm not one to take challenges lightly, so I pulled out my mom's old sewing machine, tried to remember my junior high home economics skills, and watched just short of a hundred YouTube videos.
There were a lot of late nights, angry words, tears, and a few moments where I was ready to give up. But I powered through, and when I finally finished (...with a 6 month old baby on my hip), I was so proud of myself.

That diaper bag is no longer in use (let's be honest - it was kind of a monstrosity), but I had found a new love. I kept trying new things, buying patterns, watching more YouTube videos, and finally purchased my own sewing machine.

It hasn't been long, but things have grown quickly. My first customer slash mother-in-law has been a huge support and an amazing marketing tool. Within a few days of my first order, in came another. And then another. And here I am - only 2 years later, slightly shell-shocked, but grateful to have found something I absolutely love doing.
