That is SO (sew) Cute!

I started my shop in 2010 when I was laid off from my job. The job market was tough and unemployment wasn't much.I've been sewing since I was a child, so I made a few things, listed them and haven't looked back since!

I LOVE setting up at craft shows and meeting people in my community while sharing what I love to do. I always hear my customers say "this is so cute!" and my name was born "Sew Cute by nichole".

Follow along with what is happening in my studio on Instagram @bynichole

Welcome! Every piece I make is made in my home, in the dining room turned studio surrounded by our daily lives. Selling online has become a huge support to my single parent home.

As an artist I have a need to create. Being able to share my creations with the world is amazing. I strive to make every product as perfect as it can possibly be. Most of my patterns come from Etsy shops, a few from vintage patterns and every once in a while I throw in my own creations.

My children inspire everything I make. They always test the prototypes of a new product before I add it to my shop. I try to make sure everything meets my high standards before becoming available to you.

Frequently asked questions
Embroidered Eyes?

I am currently not offering embroidery options to replace the plastic eyes. No eyes literally means: no eyes. I’ve made all of them without eyes and they are all just as sweet. Checkout my instagram gallery to see examples (@bynichole)
