Really well made and very comfy and soft against skin. I have very sensitive skin so glad to make the change from disposable pads!

Something Sweet and Something Spicy
My name is Stefania, I'm an Italian mom living in Ireland. I have 3 beautiful children, Sam, Shannon and Conor and I'm the proud owner of Sweet Lavender and Chili Flakes, a.k.a. Lavender And Chili.
Sweet Lavender and Chili Flakes is the name of my Blog.
I've always been a very creative person. Since I can remember, I've loved writing and reading. Having a Blog was the obvious step after years of secretly writing my journal.
I also had an aptitude for handmade items. Making presents by hands wasn't unusual for me. I was quite young when I started to knit and hand embroidery (my mom is very good at knitting and crocheting. I remember spending hours admiring her making beautiful things for me and my sisters). Throughout my college years, I also made a few scented candles, pieces of jewelry and weird looking things out paper mache for my closest friends. I burnt pots and cut my fingers so many times! But the real deal for me was sewing, making my own clothes, designing my own pretty skirts or dresses out of pretty colorful fabrics.
I'm a self-taught seamstress/designer. I did one online sewing course, and this is how the MAGIC begun... Soon after, I started making colourful dresses, skirts, curtains, cushion-cases and stuffed animals and dolls. Obviously, having kids has speeded up the process, because, of course, when you have kids making stuff for them doubles the satisfaction. People started asking where I bought my clothes and my children clothes, and when they realised that I made them, they suggested "You should start selling them..."... and here I am.
All my products are handmade with love, and I only use high quality eco friendly materials to make them.
All the items you see in my Shop are design by me. I don't use commercial patterns, nor free ones from the Internet, I want to be original and true to myself. Said that, I do lots of research on the Internet and get inspired by the new trends.
I'm a BIG supporter of breastfeeding, babywearing, and the attachment parenting philosophy. The environment is very dear to me, too, all of these you can definitely see in many of my works.
Please, feel free to contact me if you have any question.
