Hi! I am the mastermind behind Bella & Bruiser. In fact I am the designer, pattern drafter, seamstress, head of marketing,...you get the point right? I am also the mom of three children which is how I got the idea to start this lil biz. When I was pregnant with my second son I wanted to find COOL clothes for him. The dogs, bears, baseballs, and sport body suits and rompers were not appealing. So I dug it out and dusted off the Brother sewing machine my grandmother had given me years before. My grandmother was a fantastic seamstress and all around craft lady. With her help and a lot of trial and error I began making some clothes and burp cloths. I learned how to read and use a patterns...and I was hooked! When my niece came along I was a sewing fool. I made her dresses, and a reversible Green Day diaper bag for my sister. I continued to make clothing and other items for my family until about 6 months after my daughter was born. It was then that I started my Etsy page and began to attend craft shows, as a vendor and not a shopper. I began to develop some patterns and stashing awesome fabrics. I went to fashion design school to hone my skill. I am dedicated to making awesome, unique, and upcycled clothing for babies and kids. The trend of upcycling and green clothing is on the rise and I am doing my part by upcycling necktie, pajamas, Tshirts, Hawaiian shirts, jeans, you name it! If it is fabric and awesome I will upcycle it! I even save every scrap for future projects (I'm a fabric hoarder) I have spent years collecting fabrics so much of what I make is completely unique. I have a distinctive style and my love of pop culture and the 50's gives my designs a one of a kind flair. Every item is created with love and care like it was for my own kiddo...because they often are.
