In the beginning and now...

In 2009, Cuddle Bug Kids started through the encouragement of my son’s occupational therapist. I started designing products to help my son and then started making and designing products to help children with autism, ADHD, and sensory integration.

Etsy helped me take the plunge from local sales to online sales. I love the design, the community, and being a part of the handmade movement. I am thrilled to have reached the 1300 sales mark this year - that's 1300 items made by my hands...whew!

Today Cuddle Bug Kids is about designing cute crochet patterns for children which encourage pretend play, sensory exploration, and fine motor skills. I've also opened a new Etsy store at to meet the needs of my thumb and finger sucking friends who need help stopping!

    In 2007, I started my Cuddle Bug Kids business out of my son's occupational therapy office making weighted blankets for children with sensory integration and autism. I now focus on designing and trying to equip parents and inspire other makers!
