I started sewing as a hobby, just to see if I enjoyed it, in 2002. My boyfriend at the time (now husband) bought me a simple sewing machine for my birthday. By 2005, I was sewing for hire — everything from pant hems to bridal gowns. I love to sew. And read. And knit. And cook. Oh, and be mommy. That’s the best one! I started sewing diapers after my sweet little monster was born in October 2010. Diapers are one of my favorite things to make! It’s just so cool to make something so functional. I love my cloth so much, I wanted to share cloth diapering with everyone. And so Monster Pants began.¬†Sewing lets me be a work at home mom. So now I am a breastfeeding, baby wearing, cloth diapering, EC-ing kind of mama. And I’m loving it.
