About

Being creative has always been life-giving to me. I remember my first sewing class as a little girl and being so fascinated with the idea that you could take a piece of fabric and transform it into whatever you wanted. Now that I'm a little older I've discovered the areas I like working in best, and sugarplum street allows me to share pieces of that with you.

While I love making adorable things for tots, I am even happier when I can combine that hobby with my passion for the earth. I strive to use repurposed materials in my sewing projects in order to reduce my footprint on the planet. This takes many shapes including cutting up old leather jackets and searching thrift stores for buttons and lace. The end results are unique, eco-friendly items that can hopefully brighten up someone's day.
