LuLu's MiMi

LuLu's MiMi is named after my grandmother.
Growing up, Mimi was (and still is) one of my favorite people to hang out with.
I would spend nights at her house and we would have tea parties on the front porch, sleep out on the screened in porch, walk to the library, and use her special china for a simple meal, etc.
Mimi has always been one of my best friends.  I love our conversations, meals, times together.

Over the years, Mimi made me many outfits; she even made my prom dress when I was in 7th grade!
It only seemed fitting that since she was the one to instill a love of sewing and teach me how to sew, that I call my little business venture: LuLu's MiMi.

Recently, I've been overwhelmed with blessings.
I was asked to make the gift bags for our first TriFABB meeting last week and was very excited.
I shared a picture of the bags on my facebook page for people to see and a lady from our town contacted me.  She owns a local gallery called The Liberty Artisan and Craft Gallery and wanted to put my stuff in there!
So, I started the process of designing business cards and my wonderful friend, Laura, of Somethin' Blue volunteered to design them for me.
Since, signing a contract with the gallery, creating my business cards, and putting them in each gift bag at the TriFABB event, I have been contacted by several people requesting orders for burp cloths, pillows, and cheer leading bags.

I am so excited about this little business venture and keeping my Mimi's legacy going.
Sewing is a dying craft and it is something that I love doing.
It is exciting to share the things I'm sewing with my Mimi and my family; we get to share ideas and techniques.
One of the best feelings is having someone come up to you and ask where you bought something and being able to respond with,
"I made it!"
If you like what you see, you need to go sign up for my first
GIVEAWAY!!
It is a very trendy item that I made for LuLu's MiMi.
