Get to Know
Gulf Coast Cottage started when I was looking for safe, imaginative toys. It was difficult to be sure the items I found in stores were REALLY safe. So- I commissioned my Father to build a kitchen set from solid wood- (immediately upon it's completion it was painted pink) and there began my obsession with felt.
I had never really been a big fan of felt- (things certainly have changed) but it seemed to be a great medium to start with. Being a professional upholsterer and seamstress- designing patterns was a task that was new and exciting. And so, my designs of play food and toys have been coming ever since.
All of the patterns I make are inspired by my children and everyday life.
