Tell us a little about you and your shop
My name is Isabel, and I'm a mom to one rambunctious 4 year old and the designer and main maker of Hedgehog Belly Designs. I worked for years as a high-end children's fashion designer in NY and London, and when I had my own child I wanted him to be able to wear cool, more stylish clothes that didn't break the budget and that were as appealing to him as they were to me. I also wanted to spend as much time with my little guy as possible, and I knew that going back to a full time corporate job wouldn't allow that - so little by little, style by style I built Hedgehog Belly Designs.
How did you get started on your craft?
I have always been an artist and a maker! Growing up I sewed clothes for my dolls, loved fine arts like pottery, painting, photography and drawing, loved fabrics, and loved all things crafty.
What do you love most about your craft?
I love seeing kids wear the clothes that I have designed. It makes my heart happy when I see a child choose an item of clothing that I made as their favorite. Also, seeing how kids style their Hedgehog Belly is the best! Sometimes they will wear things in a totally different way than I had envisioned and it looks amazing! I love that things that I make can help kids to show their personality to the world.
