Bec from Becca's Baby Bowtique
Tell us a little about yourself:
Hi! I'm Bec, fabric collector and baby clothes sewist. I am Mum to 3 children under 5 years old. I was born a country girl (Mt Isa , QLD) but now live in Brissy. I have lots of different passions which has led me down different paths. I have studied music, I am a qualified Primary school teacher and I now work part time as an Early years teacher. I took up sewing when I was on maternity leave from my teaching job when I had my first daughter. I realised I had no hobbies outside of work so I bought a machine and self taught!
Funny fact: I failed home Economics class in high school after another kid sewed through my finger!
What is your brand name or Instagram handle and how did you come up with it?
My business name is “Becca's Baby Bowtique" which I created back in 2014 when I was making headbands and bibs. I dabbled in a few different styles until I found some items that I love to make every single day.
What are the products you make?
My specialty is baby clothes. I am obsessed with baby bodysuits but I make all sorts of kids clothes from Jumpers right down to underwear.
What do you like to do in your spare time when you aren’t sewing up beautiful makes?
Spare time? I honestly cannot stand to be away from my sewing machines. I get withdrawals. I have been known to take my machines with me on trips (to the Grandparents in Chinchilla) because sewing is my happy place. I love cloth nappies and taking pictures of my kids. Saturday’s are my favourite day as I get in the pool and do swimming lessons with my little man.
What’s your favourite fabric base?
Absolute favourite base is cotton lycra. I sew in other bases but it takes some twisting of my arm. I’m hoping for some Clover bamboo in the future so I can roll around in it too.
What’s your favourite Clover print (you can’t say all of them 😉):
I honestly want to say all of them. I adore every single sunflower print and Clementines in the Sky is my latest obsession. I cannot wait to show it off!
If you have a business, how can we order from you?
You can find me over at my website: HTTP://Beccasbabybowtique.bigcartel.com You can also message me through my Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/Beccasbabybowtique/ or VIP group to discuss custom orders. I am also on Instagram (more than I should be). If you need something from a pre-order fabric, I will gladly use you as an excuse to buy more fabric!
