All Things Applique evolved over my first few years of being a mom. After my first son was born, I started dreaming of being able to create one of a kind outfits for him to wear. As a long time hand made gift giver, I also envisioned creating personalized baby gifts for my friends as they became new parents as well. With some help from my ever supporting mom, I purchased my first single needle embroidery machine. I remember my first attempts at hooping a small shirt ? disastrous! But I also remember the pride of my baby boy wearing the first bib I made for him. There is just something special about being able to make a truly one of a kind item.
Over the next months, my little hobby started growing and I opened my first Etsy shop, Little Bittle Designs. It brought me great joy to create for others. I made friendships with customers that I had never met. However, as my due date of baby boy two approached, the number of orders began to overwhelm me and I knew I needed to make a change. That is when the idea of All Things Applique took shape. After a couple of years of researching, designing, and learning to digitize, All Things Applique was launched. I have truly found my niche. I love designing. I love testing. I love seeing what my customers create with designs I have created. I hope you enjoy my designs just as much as I enjoy creating them for you! I am continually grateful for your support of All Things Applique!
