Hope & Bravery

My little shop with big heart all originated, bc of an unexpected life event.
In 2012 I was expecting our first child. At 19 weeks he was diagnosed with trisomy 13. Which only has a life expectancy of 1 in 10,000. Our little guy Caleb made it to almost 32 weeks in utero.

Well, after coming home with empty arms & broken heart I took my sewing machine and started really teaching myself how to sew. I became pregnant with Caleb's little brother Micah a couple of months after. I practiced making baby moccasins for him, bc I couldn't afford popular ones. From that my passion grew and I began to feel happy and confident. Sewing brought me out of depression and what was a devastating time in our lives.

What was a distraction I believe God has allowed to become part of my purpose. I've grown to practicing making clothes and now I love to make affordable bags. Today I donate $1 from each bag to a children's hospice in honor of my first son Caleb.

Today I'm a proud mommy of 3 boys named Micah,Sage and Caleb in heaven. I wouldn't be able to do any of this without my loving husband & Bc of wonderful supporters like you. I'm a stay at home mom with my kiddos while sewing bags and trying clothing for a cause And awareness. Everything is handmade with love.

    I'm a self taught sewer/sewist, however you'd like to say it :). I love affordability and creating. With those two combined I decided to offer the same to others. Everything is handmade with love with a 6 & 2 yo running around somewhere near.
