Being a busy mum of four young children can be hectic, but it can also reap surprising benefits in unexpected ways as accessory designer Sinead Soan discovered.
When Sinead’s daughter, Isabel, kept asking for ribbon bows in her hair, Sinead started to make her own. It became a hobby and soon she was experimenting with a wide range of fabulous fabric prints and bright colours.
From there she began to put her ribbons on to other accessories for Isabel, designing headbands, socks, hats, even tutus.
It wasn’t long before other mums asked where she had bought them and from here on she began to get requests to make her accessories for other girls too. Suddenly, out of a hobby, a business was created. Belle’s Ribbons had been born.
Still in its infant stages, enterprising mum, Sinead, is now beginning to sell her fantastic designs to other mums from her facebook page and is looking into opening up a store on Etsy in the near future. We wish her lots of luck with the venture.
You can look at more of her designs and order some for your own daughters at the Belle’s Ribbons Facebook Page .
