Getting to know Petite Krott Creations:
What got you started in selling items in your Etsy shop?
I enjoyed knitting and had experience sewing diapers for my little girl, so I decided to offer up my items for sale.
Where did your shop name originate?
My shop name, Petite Krott, comes from a nickname my father calls my little girl. Is is a french term of affection...much like saying cutie pie or something similar.
What is one piece of advice you wish someone would have told you when you started cloth diapering?
When I cloth diapered my little girl, I used flannel diapers found at thrift stores and my own handmade diapers under nylon pull on covers. It was only four years ago, but there wasn't as much selection as there is now. I never learned about wool as a diaper cover until she was almost potty trained. Many people still don't know about this amazing option as a diaper cover. So, I wish someone would have told me about wool soakers, shorties, longies, etc. when I was first starting out.
What is your favorite thing to do when you’re not sewing/working for your shop?
When I am not sewing or knitting for my shop, working outside the home, or studying for my Bachelor of Education courses, I really enjoy relaxing with and spending time with my family.
What is your current favorite item in your shop, and why?
Right now my favorite item is my Ribbie pattern because it has been in the works for a long time now. It is a one size fits most knit wool soaker design. I have had many requests for the pattern and after much testing it is finally released!
What is your favorite material to work with?
I really love kntting with buttery soft wools like Purewool, Cestari, BFL, and Gaia.
How long has your shop been open?
My 2 year anniversary is coming up in September.
I am a mother of a 4 year old princess. I have a loving husband of almost 5 years. I work 6 months out of the year as a laboratory instructor in a University. I am working towards my B.Ed. part-time. I enjoy spending time with my family, knitting, and sewing in my spare time.
