This week we are featuring the super cute etsy shop-Blossom and Grow--full of adorable bibs and matching burp cloths. These aren't just any bibs and burp cloths though, the designer/owner behind Blossom and Grow, Kathryn, has a keen eye for details. We love the mod/vintage feel of her fabric choices, contrast stitching, terry cloth backing, and fun button closures on the bibs.
Let's get to know a little bit more about Kathryn:
|Kathryn with daughter, Emma|
What does your life outside of Etsy look like? Well, I am a new mom! Our daughter Emma Kate is 8 months old. My husband Josh and I have been married for almost four years now. I work part-time from home doing the advertising for a local garden center. My mom lives ten minutes away so I take Emma to see grandma quite a bit. My mom is an incredible seamstress and has begun to teach me how to sew. So being a mommy and sewing are my new adventures right now and I am loving it!
Describe yourself in three words.
Fall piece you can’t live without: Snuggly Sweaters…
Most recent fashion-related purchase: Skinny jeans. I am venturing out. I never liked them but recently decided they aren’t so bad…
Do you craft/make anything else outside of what’s in your shop?
Not too much.. I really enjoy photography so I guess you could say that is making something. I do like to bake but haven’t had much time to do that lately. I am always up for trying new crafty things though…
Any pet peeves? Moodiness. I like people and my surroundings to be happy. : )
Bad habits? Forgetting to eat, then half way through the day I feel horrible….
Desert-island food? Pizza..
Three bands/singers you can’t get enough of: Don’t really have too many specifics. Country is my favorite but I’ll listen to just about anything..
What made you decide to start a shop? Well I’m not working as much as I use to so I thought a little extra cash wouldn’t hurt anything. I love sewing so I have made all these bibs and burp cloths and Emma can only wear so many bibs. : ) And it’s relaxing for me. I was looking for a hobby that I enjoy and can relax doing and sewing is that hobby.
Significance of your shop name: I’m not really sure how I came up with it. I love plants and flowers so that’s kind of were blossom came from and I just thought how fast Emma is growing and thought grow fit well with blossom. When I put the two together I thought it made a cute name for a baby shop.
