Hi!! Welcome to my site: Potato and Cupcake.

I am a single mom with a sweet, bouncy daughter. I absolutely love making adorable dresses for her, heirloom quilts for her and big beautiful bows for her. I was widowed in 2010 after my husband fought and lost to depression.

I have been sewing since I was about 6. My mom let me use her sewing machine and I started down a path I have loved ever since. I remember going through fabric stores touching, cuddling and picking out fabric with my mom. I would rub the top of my nose across the fabric to see if it was soft. I introduced my daughter to sewing early on. She would sit in the same large computer chair with me while I worked away. We do this a lot less often now that she’s older and has grown, while the chair has not.

We have two rambunctious rescue dogs who bring light and joy into our lives. I have always had rescue dogs or dogs that claimed us as family. I think all dogs should have a good home, a soft pillow and as many toys as they can possibly handle.

Recently I have been introduced to purebred Chihuahuas. I adore the long haired ones. So, I combined my loves and have started making dog dresses that are absolutely fabulous. My spring line is the BonBon Spring line, featuring Moda fabrics in fanciful colors.

Join me on this journey of color, crafts and canine couture. Thanks!!
