I´ve been creating since I can remember and finished my studies in fine arts in Iceland back in 2005 and came to Bcn in the fall of 2010 to follow my dream of living and learning in Spain.

I made my first pair of baby shoes in may 2000 for my then soon to be born cousin, I made a few pairs for her in different sizes the smallest she only fit in coming home from the hospital and maybe a week after that but what a beautiful keepsake it is.

I made my first pair of baby shoes in may 2000 for my then soon to be born cousin, I made a few pairs for her in different sizes the smallest she only fit in coming home from the hospital and maybe a week after that but what a beautiful keepsake it is. Being that i was only fifteen I put the patterns away and forgot about them. Then in 2006 after I finished my studies of fine arts I was putting things away, cleaning up a bit board out of my mind that day when I stumbled upon my old pattern folder and found the baby shoe pattern and some wool felt scraps and so in avoiding house chores that day I worked on the design a bit and made a few pairs. Then ran down stairs to show them off to my grandmother, back then I lived in the country with my grandparents, and as so often in my grandma kitchen there were visitors and then and there I sold my first pair of hand made baby shoes as one of the guests was on her way to her grandsons christening the very next day. As the word of mouth reached back to me after showing only a few people it dawned on me I could make some money doing something I loved. So I set out to build up some stock and took it to a weekend market in a near by seaside town and ever since I have been making baby shoes and loving it.
