Cressie Allen's Profile
For as long as I can remember, I have enjoyed creative hobbies, such as painting, sewing and decorating. After a corporate layoff in 2009, I had too much time on my hands (and not enough funds coming in) and I used the opportunity to begin creating distinctive, handcrafted aprons and selling them wherever we went. In 2010, the business expanded to include boutique style garments for girls, various types of handbags, clutches and diaper bags.
I am a self-taught seamstress, cook and decorator. Paint and fabrics are some of my best friends. With imagination and the mindset of "no fear", I can make something unique and make myself or someone else smile. That's good stuff.
My sewing buddy is my 4 year old Jack Russell, who patiently brings his toy to me to play fetch from my sewing machine, as he often dodges fabric…
