Getting to know Sweet Violets Mama
What got you started in selling your items in your Etsy shop?
I made recycled wool covers for my daughter when she was born and loved doing it so I decided to open shop.
How did your shop name originate?
Named for my sweet daughter Violet!
What is one piece of advice you wish somebody had given you when you started cloth diapering?
It's easy and fun!
What is your favorite thing to do when you're not sewing/working for your shop?
I love spending time with my family, reading and outdoor activities.
What is your current favorite item in your shop and why?
I don't currently have any listed, but my all time favorite to make are my patchwork longies! They are fun, unique and help me use every scrap of wool! I have examples listed on my Facebook page.
What is your favorite material to work with?
Recycled wool and cashmere.
How long has your shop been open?
Since August of 2008.
I currently stay home with my 2 1/2 year old daughter Violet and I'm expecting baby (boy!) number 2 in early May. My family tries to live as "green" as we can by reducing, reusing, and recycling everything! :)
