{Big Hopes and Dreams for 2012}

Hello to all of my lovely fans and followers! 


I hope that all of you have some fun and relaxing plans with your families or friends this evening to celebrate the upcoming new year!!

I apologize for it being so quiet on the blog lately but I'm sure all of you can relate when I say that that holidays can turn into a completely crazy time and needless to say, the "social networking" aspect of my business has suffered a little bit. 

No worries! With the start of 2012 coming up I'm really hoping to get aggressive with my sewing projects and hopefully start adding a little more variety of products to my shop!! Not only do I want to try to add more mother/baby items to my shop inventory but I almost want to start adding some miscellaneous ones such as quilted coasters, sewing machine covers, and more! :-) We'll see though...everything is still in the works.

After all the holiday madness settled down I was able to find a little time to do some sewing projects for myself and one of the big projects that I've been working on recently was quite a HUGE success for me! I'm a little embarrassed to admit this, but with my 8 years of sewing experience, I have not ONCE sewed a zipper to any garment....I know, you can gasp, it's shocking for me to put it into perspective like that but I was SO intimidated by the idea of working with a zipper, and I honestly have no clue why! haha!

With that said, I'm VERY excited to say that I have conquered that "fear" and made my very first item that required a zipper and here it is...

A sleep sack with a matching hat! Isn't it just ADORABLE?!

This is just one of the things that I would love to add to my inventory this coming year.

I REALLY look forward to working with all of you during this new year and your continued support means so much to me! I see amazing things happening at Made With Love by Caty for 2012 and everything I do is inspired by all of my fans!

Much Love!

I also have a new section in my shop titled "New Items" where I've listed a few things I was able to get finished before the holiday craziness started! I hoping to get a lot more listed once the holiday madness slows down :-) 

I want to take this moment to thank each and every one of my loyal fans and customers! I'm truly grateful for your ongoing support and my little shop wouldn't be where it is today without all of you! For those of you that are constantly helping me get my name out there...THANK YOU!

I have a huge giveaway that you can see HERE that I will launch once I hit 1000 fans on my Facebook page and 50 sales (currently at 44 sales) in my Etsy shop.

I wish all of you and your families a VERY Merry Christmas and a GREAT 2012!

With Much Love,

  • Reach 1,000 fans on my Made With Love By Caty Facebook fan page (currently at 575 fans)
  • Reach 50 sales in my Etsy Shop (currently at 34 sales - custom orders are WELCOME)
What will be given away once I reach these two bullet points, you ask?

An entire coordinating bundle of goodies that includes....

This bundle is valued at $83.00 in my shop and you could potentially WIN IT!!!!!!

You read that right! When both of the above criteria are reached...I will have a this massive giveaway!! :-)

The fine print only catch, I get to choose the fabrics once I find out if I'm making these items for a little man or a little lady :-) Suggestions will be welcome, of course...but I get to pick! I L.O.V.E. fabric shopping so there's gotta be something in it for me too, right!? ;-) Don't worry, I promise I'll make sure you like love what you get LOL!

So.....spread the word, share the love, and GET EXCITED!!!!

How about this for another incentive...the person with the most friend referrals to my Facebook fan page, will have a special prize (an item of their choice, a very generous discount...who knows!? hehehe) waiting for them after I announce the winner of the giveaway, when that day comes ;-) Just make sure that when you share my page with your friends...don't forget to tell them to mention your name and send me a little "HI" after "liking" my page. And don't forget to make sure that when you refer your friends...that you're already a fan hahaha! (I know, I'm silly, but I just couldn't resist that last part lol!)

Once again, I can't thank you all ENOUGH for your support and I can't wait for this day to come!


Much Love,

"Rave Reviews"

I just have to say, I have the most amazing, sweetest, loving fans/customers out there!!!

The love and support that you all give me, means the WORLD to me! I just want to say thank you to all of you and send out a special thank you to those of you that have taken the time to write a review about my products!

I took a look at my review tab on my Facebook fan page today and it brought tears to my eyes. I started this business just over a year ago, and it's my fans/customers that have made my journey amazing. Hearing from all of you make me love my "job" more and more everyday and I love every second of what I do! Here are the reviews that have been submitted so far. These reviews say more than I ever could begin to ;-)

"- 5 STARS - I was given a pair of booties by the photographer that photographed my youngest son's birth. They are adorable & so soft, how could they not be comfortable? My baby loves them, he gets tons of compliments on them whenever he wears them out. I've since ordered another pair, & will be ordering more in the future :)" -Ashley S.

"- 5 STARS - I won a pair of booties in a giveaway. I picked the pick foxes and they are the cutest things I have ever seen. I only wish that they were in my size. They are also very nicely made." - Kristina B.

"- 5 STARS- I found Caty through Randi G. (besides going to school with her). I love, love, love the owl booties she made for my little owl!! It was great to talk with her and be able to have a one-on-one about what I was buying instead of the usual big box mart experience where what you see is what you get. The quality is superb and they are so soft! I want a pair for myself!" - Faith G.

"- 5 STARS - I found Miss. Caty thanks to the lovely Angie R. and lets just say I'll never be the same! So many different HOMEMADE baby items to choose from that you can't even pick just one thing! I just recieved my custom made girl booties and they are so adorable, even my husband said so! I look forward to using Made with Love by Caty for years to come! :)" - Danielle P.

"- 5 STARS - I have yet to use my nursing pads but I will say Caty is super friendly/helpful and will do her very best to be sure you LOVE your products. Its nice to see someone doing what they love!" - Angie R.


If there is anyone out there that owns some of my products, if you could please take the time to write out what you think of my goodies, I'd sincerely appreciate it! ;-)

Halloween is right around the corner...

Hey All!

I seriously can't believe it's been so long since I've last posted on the good 'ol blog! I've been so busy with some MAJOR custom order quilts and when that's not taking up my time our job as apartment managers is, it's peak season for apartment turn arounds! YIKES!

Anyways, just wanted to let you all know that I've posted 2 pairs of Halloween booties in my Etsy Shop. There are only one pair in each size so get them before they're gone!!

In the next month or so, expect to see some CHRISTMAS BOOTIES! Yep, you read that right! ;-)

Happy Summer everyone! :-)

First off, WELCOME to all of my new followers!

I just wanted to say that I'm trying my hardest to play catch up and restock my Etsy shop. It's been a crazy, crazy month with custom orders, sponsoring giveaways, and my baby girl's 1st birthday this last weekend! haha! Hopefully with the birthday craziness behind us I can start getting some items posted.

I also have some awesome news, I now make and sell RE-USABLE SNACK BAGS!! WOO HOO! I'm also working on other projects that I will hopefully be able to figure out and sell in the near future!

Thank you all SOOOOO much for your support and patience! It means so much to me!

I was FINALLY able to get some sewing done this weekend, thanks to my amazing husband who kept little Miss K occupied while I sewed. I'm happy to say that I will be able to put up more listings in my Etsy shop around the end of this month! I'm tired of my shop looking so "empty". It definitely needs some freshening up!

I'm still taking custom orders but just to give you all a heads up, I will be going on vacation to visit my family from March 10th until the 21st.

Hope you all have a great week!

I have created a new email address for my shop!

I will NO LONGER be using for my shop.

Hope you all are having a great weekend!!

I'm very excited to announce that I have added yet ANOTHER item to my inventory at Made With Love By Caty! One of my biggest goals was to have a variety of different items for sale in my shop and I can definitely say I've accomplished that! And the new items are......

BIBS!!! (One size fits most)

These bibs fits babies approximately 6 months old through the toddler years. There are two sets of snaps that allow you to adjust the bib as your little one grows. The bibs measure approximately 10" across and 9" from the neck to the bottom of the bib allowing for GREAT coverage for "messy" eaters :-)

Each bib will be made with cotton fabric on the front side with cotton flannel lining the back.

The starting price is $8.00 each plus shipping costs.

Email me at if you have any questions. If you would like to place a custom order for a bib, visit my Etsy shop and click on the "request custom item" link on the left hand side of my page under shop info.


Love, Caty

When I'm not quilting or making items for my shop, I'm browsing other blogs to see what fellow sewers are coming up with these days. One blog that I frequently visit is Quiltstory. I just LOVE seeing all the new projects that she shares and all the projects that others share with her.

Today Quiltstory wrote a post called "Fabric Tuesday!" and it allows all of us to share a recent project we've been working on and I decided to share my newest project...

For those of you that are fans of my Facebook page and saw my brand new recent project that I completed, after much debate I have decided to sell DRESSES!! YAY!!

For those of you that do not have a Facebook and have yet to see my newest it is...

$25.00 each (Sizes 6-9 months up to 4T available) This dress is NOT for sale.

I made this particular dress for my daughter for my brother's wedding next year and was SO excited to see it turn out so great. I've never attempted to make clothing before and I'm so glad I got the guts to try this dress out. For those of you that sew, you can relate when I say that sometimes you just expect to mess something up because it's your first attempt at something new. Well, I aced it! I was SO happy and excited (if you couldn't tell already haha).

These dresses do take a lot more time to make compared to all my other items in my shop so to start out, until I really get the hang of making them, I've decided to only take 5 custom dress orders a month starting February 1st. I need to give myself a chance to catch up on all my other custom orders this month. One custom dress order has been taken for February so there are only FOUR spots left! If you have Facebook and follow my page, head on over there to check out the Discussion Tab. Look for the "Dress Order" topic and please read that information. If you don't, go ahead and email me at to reserve your spot!

If you order a dress that are sizes 6-9 or 9-12 months, ask about matching booties!!!! :-)

For those of you that want to see some other awesome projects, visit Quiltstory and follow their blog! Even better, go to her blog, snag her button and share it on your blog too!! I've added their button to the left of my page :-)

I want to thank you all again for all of your support! It's all of you that make my business a success and your excitement in the things that I create make me wanting to create new stuff, just like this dress, for you! You are all so amazing! THANK YOU!

Much Love,
