Skills and Techniques

I love playing with baby clothes design and plan to include patterns for the whole layette and beyond. My other "fetish" is finding "Hard to find" Cotton Knit Fabric for you to make baby/children clothes from. I have been sewing, tailoring, and designing for over 40 years.

Get to Know

I started sewing when I was 5. Fast Forward.... When I gave birth to my first child, she was a preemie. There were no clothes that fit her, so I designed and made them. Over the years I made clothes for all 8 of my children, saving my patterns. After having my last boy and getting divorced, I needed some way to support my family. So I started Lil' Baby Thangs. In 1998, I started reworking those patterns and adding sizes to make them available for other moms of preemies, along with other children's sizes.
