TurtleBirdies has been in business since 2013. Originally TurtleBirdies was the collaboration of two sisters, Amanda & Lauren, focusing on "creative stuff. " It has since morphed into a custom made clothing company and sewing studio run by Amanda. TurtleBirdies Customs provides clothing tailored specifically to you and your needs. The goal of TurtleBirdies Sewing Studio is to teach children as young as 3 a love of sewing and creating. Lauren now focuses on her art which can be found in her shop Proud Chicken Farm and Studio.
I live in Saxpawhaw, NC with my wonderful and chaotic family. I have a patient and charming husband and I'm also a mommy to four growing TurtleBirdies or as we call them, Turkeys. There's a big brother, a little brother, a big sister, and a little sister. We somehow manage to live on a small "farm" in the middle of a neighborhood. We grow some of our own vegetables and have 3 dogs, 4 cats, and 5 chickens. In my spare time, I love to design, test patterns and make clothes for my turkeys.
I started sewing when I was six or seven years old and have been ever since. I love everything about sewing especially buying fabric. I have an enormous stash of fabric which I, usually, cannot bring myself to cut. I really loved designing and making evening gowns in high school and college, but there's not much of a need for that kind of thing at this moment in my life. I like sewing for myself, but my little monsters usually come first, and besides, they take way less fabric. I love the idea of blogging about my various projects, but my life doesn't always allow me to do all the things I'd like. So be forewarned, posting is not a regular occurrence.
I like things that are unique, and I very much prefer NOT to make the same thing in the same fabric or in the same size more than once. Every person is one of a kind and I feel that clothing should be the same. Hope you enjoy reading the sporadic posts about my sewing projects.
