Due to the holiday weekend, this week's post will be short and sweet. Very sweet! As soon as I discovered The Polka Dot Tot Spot, I was smitten with Heather's whimsical designs. Hope you enjoy!
The Polka Dot Tot Spot was created by Heather, a stay-at-home mother of two, from Central Illinois. Discouraged by all the toy recalls after the birth of her daughter, she set out to make her own safe toys, creating a set of Jingle Balls and Cloth Blocks. They were such a hit with her little girl that she began making them for friends and eventually started selling them. The Polka Dot Tot Spot has provided a way for her to earn money working from home, while doing something that she loves. She jokes that it also helps her support her fabric addiction! Her favorite aspect of the job is hearing how much her young customers love playing with her handcrafted toys. In addition to her Jingle Balls and Cloth Blocks, be sure to check out her colorful banners and appliqued shirts.
