Welcome! And thank you for stopping by Betty Bow Blue!

A LITTLE ABOUT ME- I am a stay-at-home-mom to two wonderful boys, and a part-time substitute teacher. As a certified high school English teacher in New York, I have had a really difficult time finding a full-time teaching job, so I started this little "side business" as a means to help bring in a little extra income. I was not looking to "make it big" and get rich, just be able to help cover the bills.

HOW IT BEGAN- Betty Bow Blue really began out of boredom. In the summer of 2011, my computer kicked the bucket, and I was without one for a whole month! I needed something to fill my spare time, so I decided to finally try out a couple of projects that I had been meaning to for a while. I hit up my mother for some of her scrap fabric (she makes all sorts of fabric goodies), and quickly got to work…

HOW IT BEGAN- Betty Bow Blue really began out of boredom. In the summer of 2011, my computer kicked the bucket, and I was without one for a whole month! I needed something to fill my spare time, so I decided to finally try out a couple of projects that I had been meaning to for a while. I hit up my mother for some of her scrap fabric (she makes all sorts of fabric goodies), and quickly got to work making a pom necklace and a few headbands. I discovered that I really enjoyed making them; I found it to be relaxing and kept me busy during nap time. Why couldn't I do this to bring in a little extra money?

There were several craft fairs coming up in our area, so I built up a pretty decent sized stock of items, and made the rounds. My first two fairs were a bust, although I did receive a lot of positive feedback, but my third was more successful. After many inquiries as to whether I was on Etsy, (I was not at the time), I eventually opened up my own Etsy shop.

GETTING DOWN TO BUSINESS- I am always experimenting with new designs, styles, and methods for making my items. I enjoy making custom items as well. Most designs that you see can be customized using different colors and styles, although some fabric choices may be limited as I work primarily with scrap fabrics. Bulk order discounts are also available. Please contact me for more information.
