Before having my little girl I started teaching myself how to sew ( with the the help of mum) I began making quilts for everyone of my friends that were having a baby. Shortly after having my little girl I needed something that would help control my anxiety so I began to buy ribbons to make hair clips and headbands for my little girl, tulle to make tutus for her and my friends babies. As soon as. I started I couldn’t stop! I kept seeing different ideas online and coming up with my own and eventually I had so much I decided to sell them at a market. With rave reviews from friends and others I thought maybe I should start a Facebook page. Very amateurish of course but it got stuff out there. Since then I have expanded to making bibs, dummy clips, hair clip holders and knot headbands. I have been to a few markets but sometimes it doesn’t work out worth it. I turned my anxiety into a very fun and sometimes expensive hobby. I would like to make it more than that and am hoping that someone reads this has any advice for me. Even if it doesn’t turn into anything I know I have the outlet I need and I know have the confidence to create cool things my daughter loves! Hopefully one day I can teach all this to other people/ kids!
