Feminine, Playful and Witty

Feminine, Playful and Witty

My source of inspiration is my daughter Mikayla Aleah. Initially, when I found out I was pregnant with my daughter at just 20 years old, I didn’t know what to think. I was living with my parents and hadn’t even finished college. At that point my life could have taken a turn for the worst but instead it made me a stronger person. Not only did I continue my education but I excelled better then I ever have and will be graduating this year with honors. She also gave me the push to follow my dreams and open my business, which I named after her Kayla’s Tutu Closet.

Simple Dresses with Style

The name of my shop came to me via my youngest daughter. When I started sewing upcycled dresses I was addicted. For the first time in a very long time I was doing something that made ME happy. I spent and still do a lot of time in my office sewing.

One afternoon, my boyfriend was in the living room and asked my 10 year old daughter where I was. She told him,”She is in the office.” He said, “Go get her.” My daughter quickly replied, “No, she is happy sewing a dress.” Hence, The Happy Dress. Aside from that, what girl isn’t happy wearing her favorite dress!

100% By Hand 100% With Love

Handmade items are more memorable and meaningful rather than store-bought items. I always keep the handmade items friends and family made for me. Not only are they made with love, but each hold a special memory to go with it. Memories are forever ♥

Today’s featured crafter derives most of her inspiration from her daughters explaining:

“I love to see them wear new creations I come up with. Many of my fabric combinations come from things found in nature. I find myself drawn to pretty floral patterns in palettes that reflect gorgeous gardens and amazing flora.”

Products for kids, designed by a real mom!

I have two, insane, boxer dogs, who like to lay on top me while I’m making things.

My 3 year old daughter is obsessed with scissors, because she watches me cut material all day. I hope to teach her to use them for creative purposes only! LOL

I LOVE that I get to stay home with my girls and the Internet allows me to work and connect with other adults.

I also LOVE talking with my customers/moms to hear that I’m not the only one dealing with pee and poop all over the bathroom floor….the walls…me……sigh…..

I love fabric, anything different so i can offer a unique piece of work.

I make more Baby Blanky’s than anything. Early Learning is important were newborns are concerned. I like to think i have played a part, in encouraging a baby to learn from the Baby Blanky’s I make. I add color and pattern with added ribbons, and always add a twist – which helps to make my items stand out.

As cheesy as it sounds, my original and continuing inspiration is my daughter, Holly. I hope that as she gets older I will be able to share my love of crafting with her and we will create new things together.

Although my daughter is the inspiration behind everything, she really is what DRIVES me to do what I’m doing. And of course, I couldn’t do any of it without my husband.

Knitted and Crocheted Baby Items

In the 6th grade, I learned to crochet for Girl Scouts. We made squares that were later sewn together to create afghans for the homeless. I stopped crocheting for awhile after that, but pick it back up when I was in high school. It was then that I discovered my love for knitting. I have been knitting and crocheting hundreds of gifts and items since then!
