Featured Friday - LilyStitches

I would like you to meet Kim Siracusa and her Etsy shop:  LilyStitches 

If you like Adorable applique t-shirts for kids of all ages, baby accessories, and much much more, Then you will love the items at LilyStitches. Kim also does custom orders!

Let's get to know LilyStitches and Kim :

What would you like us to know about you?
What would you like us to know about you? Originally from Syracuse, NY, I now live in Rochester with my wonderful husband. By day I am a full time special education teacher, but on the weekends I enjoy sewing and baking. My interest in these hobbies began as a child. My mom is an amazing baker (and cook :)) and her mother a fantastic crocheter. Some of my fondest childhood memories are the times I spent with these two loving women who have been the inspiration of Lilystitches.

What prompted you to open an Etsy Shop?
A couple of years ago one of my best friends taught me to quilt. Shortly after that, I began making applique t-shirts for friends children. For fun I posted my pictures on Facebook and my cousin recommended I look into Etsy. From then on I was hooked :)

How did you come up with your shop name?
I have 2 dogs, Roxy & Lily. While they are both my loves, Lily is my "try something new", "adventurous" inner child.

How would you describe your shop?
I would describe my shop as a work in progress. I love custom orders! My shop currently consists of children's apparel (applique t-shirts, pillowcase dresses, jumpers) baby accessories (bibs, burp clothes), women's bags/clutches and hair accessories.

What inspires you?
I find my inspiration through my loved ones. I have several friends and family that ask me to make things for their little ones or special events. From there I vary the designs for others so that each design is somewhat of an original.

Which item in your shop is your favorite to make/find?
I would have to say that my favorite item in my shop my flower girl skirt sets. I love working with brides to coordinate the colors of their wedding to make the perfect gift for the little ones who are part of their special day.

If you were shipwrecked on a desert island, what are the 3 crafty must haves?
Hmmm that's a tough one...1) Gorilla glue 2) thread 3) Velcro

Where else can we find you?
You can find me at
My goal this year is to try out a craft fair or 2 but those are TBA :)

Is there anything else you would like to share?
Just that I am so thankful for the opportunity to have met the wonderful individuals that I have gotten to know over the past year.

Thanks so much Kim.  It has been great getting to know you and discovering your shop and your lovely items.

Now please show Kim some support and let us know which of her pieces are your favorite from her shop! Oh...and go ahead and heart a few of her items along with her shop :)

Have a great weekend!
