About


I have always loved fabrics and sewing since at a very young age. My dad always encouraged me to sew, and my mother taught me. After teaching me all she could, then my mother found someone who could teach me in other areas, which opened my world to new discoveries and a love for creating with fabric!

I am a mother of 5 children, who have all flown the nest. So now I am creating fun things for grandbabies, wishing there were more hours in the day to do all the things I would love to do. Creating non stop would be so much fun, and is on my wish list!

In May of 2011, I was at a craft show, selling camera strap covers, when a young lady came by and asked if the straps were for stethoscopes. She was a nurse at a local hospital. I had never thought about the camera straps being used in that form. But it started my thinking…

In May of 2011, I was at a craft show, selling camera strap covers, when a young lady came by and asked if the straps were for stethoscopes. She was a nurse at a local hospital. I had never thought about the camera straps being used in that form. But it started my thinking process going. After talking with my son-in-law about his profession of being an orthopedic PA, he loaned me one of his stethoscopes and the designing began.

I loved the name "Strappies", so my daughter obtained the name for a future Etsy shop. And that is were I am at today. Having fun creating stethoscope covers! It has taken me a little while to get the design I liked, and would be completely functional for stethoscope use. Now my shop is being added to each time I find a cute combo of fabrics. Its addicting, as there are so many awesome patterns of fabric out there to choose from.

Check back often, as I will continue to add more fabric designs. If you have suggestions of what fabric designs you would like to have in your profession, please let me know, as I am open to new ideas! Thank you for stopping by Strappies!
