Patricia's Profile

About

I am the proud mother of two daughters and a gorgeous little girl named “Montana”, who is my only grandchild. Montana’s favorite toy when she was a baby was a little stuffed turtle, that she took everywhere she went. This becomes the catalyst for the name “Turtle Shells”.

I have always loved making clothes for my daughters while they were growing up and now spend spare time creating things for my granddaughter. She is truly my inspiration to designing fun and unique things that little ones love to wear. Dance and Halloween costumes, along with dresses, tops, shorts for her cheerleading squad and of course the “new school year” book bag are just a few of my hobbies that I design for my granddaughter all the time.

I have been sewing, including alterations for many years and have enjoyed working with people to create clothing that is custom designed just for them. In 2007, I started creating baby gifts and children’s clothing which have become a staple for many. My clientele appreciate having a “go to” place to get unforgettable gifts for baby showers or birthdays. A gift that is simple, unique, and one that is made to last.

Each item that I design is made the “old fashioned” way…like your grandmother would have made them. All seams are finished and clean, fabric that is durable and washes beautifully. My clothing is created from a lot of natural fabrics such as cotton and muslin. I also use vintage fabrics to give some of the clothing a feel of yester-year. I am proud to make things that people can wear and use without having to worry that it “won’t last. I believe money well spent; should be spent on items of quality. I base my business philosophy on that.

I do the sewing for two other Etsy sites

I want everyone to enjoy my clothing, toys and gifts along with the people whom receive them.

Shipping can be designated to an alternate address for gift giving or to a company address; for those of you not home during the day.

Free gift wrap upon request!

I also have a local shop in my home for local customers. If you have seen something of interest on my Etsy Shop but it is no longer posted; please contact me to inquire. I strive to keep a variety of new items at all times.

If you live in the local community or just in the area, please stop in!

Sincerely,
Patricia
