I'm in business! yippie!

It's official! I'm in business! I got my act together, sent the kids in the other room to play and I uploaded pics of some of my products, bibs and burp cloth sets. It's just a start. I can't wait to get back to designing and sewing...I'm so excited! I'll upload pics as soon as I figure out how :-).

Adventures in Sewing -February 25

pheew...It's been quite a busy month in my world of sewing. I am feverishly trying to make my March 1st go-live on turtleparktots.etsy.com deadline with two young boys. Leo, the baby, isn't taking naps like he should so that momma can work. Yikes! I think he must be cutting another tooth. The oldest, Ethan, helps out as much as a 3 year old can...I can't wait until I get into a nice groove :-)

Early this month I put my own sewing on hold to make 13 dinosaur tails for Ethan's preschool class (they are studying dinosaurs). I had never made "tails" before so it was fun and challenging but a lot of work. It's all I did for 4 days....but the kids loved them and they turned out so cute.

I'm just about done photographing the initial set of baby accessories for turtleparktots.etsy.com. I'm starting small but I have tons of fabric and ideas for more designs. My first few products will be burp cloth sets and burp cloth/bib sets using moda and michael miller fabrics....but that's just the begining! I love fabrics and color so expect a lot of both :-)

happy sewing!

Welcome to Turtle Park Tots blog!

Turtle Park Tots offers hip and whimsical accessories for momma and tot. All items are handcrafted with quality, duribility and style in mind. All designs are inspired by the needs of mom and the love of fabric. Only the highest quality fabrics and materials are used.

Turtle Park Tots was created after the birth of my second child out of a need to be creative and a frustration over the lack of stylist children's accessories. All items are designed and handmade by me.

I am a mother of two beautiful boys. I left the corporate world to watch them grow up. I've been sewing for as long as I remember and I've been making accessories for my own Turtle Park Tots since the birth of my first son in 2004.

Currently I offer burp cloths, bibs, changing pads, pacifier bags, blankets and nursing pillow covers. Diaper bags and children's clothes are coming soon (I hope :-)). I plan to upload pics soon.

The grand opening of Turtle Park Tots on etsy.com is planned for March 1st, but I hope to be selling a bit sooner. Check back for updates...
