My 3 year old loves his new apron. Lauren was so sweet too - I'd originally ordered toddler size, but it was way too small for my bigger toddler. Lauren exchanged them with no problem and this size is perfect! He will be able to wear it for years :) thank you!!

Easter is just around the corner. Why not get your little one a bunny cape or Easter egg apron?
Aprons make great gifts for the holidays. Perfect to keep that holiday outfit clean during dinner. Limited quantities.

My Name is Lauren and I Love to Sew

Sewing is something I have loved since elementary school.

If I only sewed for my friends and family, they would certainly be sick of my items by now.

My logical alternative was to start a business, which I did over 20 years ago.

In the beginning I used to go to craft shows, which I loved at the time (not interested anymore)

At one point I made halloween costumes and was very sucessful. The difficult part was that 75% of them were custom orders within a short period of time.

When my kids were little, I actually used to stay up all night every thursday and cut out costumes in September and October. Luckily I was younger then, it would kill me today :)

That couldn't go on forever, as my kids grew and became busier, I stopped doing shows and started teaching adult education sewing classes.

Fast forward to 2008 and after many incarnations of my business, I found etsy and opened my first etsy shop. This shop came along a few years later.

I love sewing for kids and I hope your kids love my creations. Everything is made from quality materials. I use the same level of skill in making a bat cape as I do a wedding gown (yes , I do that too) . If you buy from me, you will receive a quality product.

Thanks for stopping by.
