Mum who makes :: boorah designs

Tell us a bit about yourself?
My name is Tammy and I am a self confessed girly girl. I love all things pretty, I love fashion and I have a weakness for shoes. I am a stay at home mother of two gorgeous children zachery 6 and Lillianna 2.

Can you explain your craft/art and the materials you like to use?
I make a gorgeous array of childrens clothes, dresses, tops skirts and pants. I love to use designer fabrics in flowers and patterns. I especially love polka dots. I try and make all my waists elastic, because I think children need to feel comfortable.
How long have you been creating and how did you get into making handmade goodies?
I started sewing just over a year ago. I stumbled across a gorgeous skirt pattern by Toni of makeitperfect and just had to have it for lillianna. It turned out just perfect so I had to make another. A friend of mine asked me to make one for her daughter and so I decided to keep on sewing.

How do you juggle motherhood & crafting/managing your business?
I find the thing that works best for me is definitely settling the children and working around them. Provided I don't have a deadline to meet I usually work when the children are asleep, at school/kindy or busy playing. However I have been found to work with children under my feet or on my lap.

Do you have any advice to other Mothers who are wanting to start creating handmade goodies?
Definitely follow your heart if you have a passion or want to try something new. It's so rewarding. I think as mothers we sometime forget to do things we love to do for ourselves. This is definately my creative outlet and there is a big market out there for handmade goodies.
