Thank you so much for stopping by my blog.
My name is Bridie. At the moment I am a stay at home mum to my beautiful daughter, Miss Mimsie Boo (aged 2) and adorable newborn son, Super Ju Ju Man (born November 2013). Along with my incredible husband we live in Melbourne. (Don't worry, they are the nicknames I call my children, not their actual names!)
I decided to create this blog one lovely morning when I was thinking about all the crafting skills I would like to learn, and how I might pass my love of creating onto my children, and maybe if I'm lucky, onto others as well.
My first memory of learning to sew was watching my Mum make patchwork library bags for my siblings and I in primary school. Somewhere along the line my Mum let me have a turn on the machine and my love for sewing grew.
There was a bit of a lull in my creative pursuits until Mimsie was born in 2011. It was then that I pulled out my sewing machine and began making clothes for her. Not long later I opened my business Little Magnolia Button.
Over the past two years Little Magnolia Button has grown and changed. It has allowed me create many cute things and meet other create souls. 2014 will see more changes, opportunities and growth for LMB - but more on that later!
I'm so excited that 2014 will be the year for me to use my crafty mornings to create new things, teach myself new crafts, try out new ideas or patterns and spend time creating with my children.
I hope you enjoy!
