The Barefoot Bags Story
As a child I used to watch my mom sew clothes for me and my brothers. I used this "education" to teach myself how to sew in college and practiced by making some Halloween costumes. After getting married and buying our first home, I began sewing some home decor items (curtains, pillows, etc.). My sewing "habit" was a weekend hobby while I worked full time in a law firm. When my son was born in 2008 I became a stay at home mom and tried my hand at making some baby blankets - around this time I also got a new sewing machine (I had been using my mom's old one which was probably almost as old as me!)
When my son was only 9 months old I became pregnant with my daughter and decided to tackle making crib bedding since I could not find anything in any of the stores that I liked. I set up the sewing machine in the dining room of our 3 bedroom home and it's still there to this day! After the crib bedding was done, I decided to make a bag for my mom for a mother's day gift. I enjoyed making it so much I started buying all sorts of bag patterns and just kept at it until I realized that I should try selling them. This is when Barefoot Bags was born and my dining room became a full time sewing room. I miss having a formal place to eat dinner with the family and some day I hope to have a larger home with a sewing room, but for now it's working out ok :)
My business has greatly expanded since I started in 2010 but I still do all the work myself from cutting and ironing to sewing and packaging for shipment and I enjoy all of it!
Around the web
I have lived in the Tidewater area of Virginia for my whole life. I think that Virginia and North Carolina are the most beautiful parts of the United States. I currently live in Norfolk with my husband and two young children.
