Even my 13 year old son loves the bow pillow. He says it is perfect for his baby sister's room and very comfortable.

About

My name is Relina and I am the owner of a handmade accessory and houseware business

Addielou officially started in 2007; if you want a straight-foward answer. I believe that Addielou started way before that. As far back as I can remember I've loved clothing and design. It may have started my first day of kindergarten when my mom bought me this pair of Osh'kosh overalls with yellow trim that I just loved or when I was 6 and my brother and I would make sitcoms with the many toys we got from kid's meals, thrift stores and the toy store and I'd make "the mom's" (Barbie's) clothes with scraps of fabric and safety pins.

When I was 15 after designing and hand sewing many skirts, my parents bought me my first sewing machine during a family gift exchange. So it began! (along with an unending love of Damien Rice but that's another story).

In 2005 I started making handbags and giving them to friends as gifts. In 2006 I met my husband,and he encouraged me to start selling my bags online, I opened up my first etsy shop under the name "Veeny's Star" after my grandmother Louvenia, After a while of going back and forth about the name I didn't really feel that it was fitting because I would always hear stories about my mom's mother, Addie Mae and how much she loved to sew and also, like me, she'd look at something and could make it from memory along with other creative comparisons. To this day I still use her pincushion. Even though she passed when I was young I still like to think that the hum of her sewing machine was what encouraged me to start sewing. I still felt it very important to incorporate my dad's mom's name (Louvenia) in my business name because I feel part of who I am and what I do, is also from parts of her.

In 2009 my beautiful daughter came along and encouraged me to work harder at Addielou so she too can realize that you don't have to settle, you can do what you love and it is possible to love working hard.
