Tammy's Profile

About

My name is Tammy. Welcome to my Etsy store! This is my first attempt at anything like this but with the help and support of my great family, this can only be fun, right?

I have a husband of 33 years and 3 adult sons. My Mom doesn't really sew much but she has the best ideas EVER and will be here for me to bounce ideas off of.

Sewing is my passion. (As well as Nursing!) It all started before I was 10 years old when my Grandma taught me to make doll clothes on a little machine she bought just for me. Since that original lesson, I’ve pretty much been on my own. Lots of Trial and even more Error. When my boys were young, I made clothing and jammies and even matching outfits for special holidays.

Since that original lesson, I’ve pretty much been on my own. Lots of Trial and even more Error. When my boys were young, I made clothing and jammies and even matching outfits for special holidays. I don’t think I could get away with that now! During those early years, we had a joint business with a Doctor friend, making "The Original Baby Sling" in our home, in a little beach community. In the beginning, I made each sling myself but as we grew and rapidly expanded {and needed to drive to L.A. to purchase loads of fabric}, I hired other seamstresses to help me with production. It was a huge job but I loved it.
Current day, I love sewing outfits and warm things for my Italian Greyhounds. We recently rescued these two cute little girls and wouldn’t you know it, they love pink and anything warm. They also appreciate cuddling up on special quilts I made just for them! {NOTE: adult sons, two married, no grand-babies, what's a Mom to do?}
When I’m not sewing for the “girls” I like to make aprons, Raggedy Ann & Andy dolls, totes, scrub tops, stethoscope covers, hospital gowns for special needs, anything for babies, pillow cases and bedding, costumes, dresses for my little nieces, boys/mens boxers and most holiday & seasonal craft items. Hopefully soon I’ll put them all up in my shop for you to see.
