About

My Sassy Daughter Saige

After my daughter Saige was born, I discovered the wonderful world of Etsy and purchased a few (or maybe more) handmade items for her. I was definitely hooked but soon realized it could become an expensive habit. I wondered if I could put my old home economics skills to use and try my hand at making clothes for her myself. All I needed was some cute fabric, some easy patterns and a trusty sewing machine. Check, check and check. Then I got to work...

As my daughter grew, she wore my creations often and had people asking me about her outfits wherever we went. Some dear friends and family members encouraged me to try selling similar items on Etsy. So I purchased a few different fabrics and more patterns and viola - the rest is history! I will be honest here and admit it wasn't an overnight success - but eventually one order came in, then another and another and so on. After 5 years, my shop is still going strong. I am undoubtedly blessed to be one of the lucky ones here on Etsy.

I have the most fun picking out fabrics because the choices are endless and I could literally spend days browsing through fabrics to find just the right one. I love trying new patterns and designing new things for Saige - since as she grows, her style changes. She is just the right amount of sassy too and has no problem giving her opinion on my designs or recommending fabrics that she likes. I wanted a simple but sweet shop name with a little bit of flair, and one that was a tribute to my daughter. After tossing some names around that didn't quite sound right, we finally settled on Sassafras Saige. The "Sass" in Sassafras fits her well most days!

My hope is to one day teach my daughter how to sew and follow in my footsteps. We are on our way with her first sewing machine. She already has a few projects under her belt and a couple design books of dresses she'd like to make someday.

Thank you for visiting my little shop in the fabulous world of Etsy. And special thanks to all my wonderful customers, neighbors, friends and supporters. I would not be able to do this without you.
