I was born and raised in Anchorage, Alaska but now live in Dallas, Texas. My grandmother taught me to sew at the age of 7. I remember sewing our pillows and my dresses. I love sewing and I have always wanted it to be much more than a hobby. Etsy gave me that chance! I started making collars for my French bulldog, Moose (I also call him Wiggly Butt). I sewed so many collars for Moose that he would wear a different one each day. Everyone in our neighborhood and dog park began to take notice of the bright and fun collars. I love Uptown Dallas because it is very dog friendly and everyone loves their pets as much as I do. I started getting requests to make collars for dogs and kittens. That's when I decided to join the Etsy family and share my handmade pet wear with everyone!
Not only do I enjoy making pet wear, I love the outcome! I take pride in every item I make and will not send you a collar unless it is perfect enough to be put on my dog.
