One question that frequently comes my way is about my journey into designing. Let me share my design origin story.
Several years ago (a multitude, really), I ventured into selling finished crochet items, catering mostly to newborn photographers. It was an exhilarating experience crafting unique outfits, from unicorn-inspired ensembles to miniature gladiator gear (you can find my top 10 baby outfits [here]).
During a hiatus for maternity leave following the birth of my youngest son, a photographer reached out with a poignant request. She sought a special design for a little boy battling a life-threatening condition, uncertain of his prognosis beyond the week.
This touched my new momma heart deeply. As I gazed at my son, I couldn't fathom the agony this family was enduring. Through nights filled with nursing and crafting, I brought to life the baby boxer outfit, both in crochet (and later in knit).
Rushing to deliver the finished prop the next morning (adding final touches as I walked through the door), I met the adorable little fighter, Aiden. His ongoing bravery and infectious smile, despite the odds, left a lasting impression.
Sharing Aiden's story on social media triggered an overwhelming influx of requests for the outfit. The demand surged beyond my capacity to fulfill, eventually leading to requests for the pattern. It became clear that this special outfit, born from a heartfelt origin, needed to be shared with the world.
Witnessing numerous babies donning this outfit brings me immense joy, and I hold dear the sweet origin that transformed into my enduring passion. Cheers to the creative journey ahead!
