Once upon a time in 2015 a girl named Ebony found out she was expecting her first child. Her whole family was thrilled especially her mum, Cilla who dusted off her sewing machine and began making all sorts of beautiful things for the baby.
Months passed and in April 2016, Ebony welcomed a little baby girl into the world and began using all the beautiful things she was gifted. Soon after Ebony began to sew and developed a love for all things handmade and her passion for sewing grew. She began making her daughter outfits and a fair few handmade gifts.
Meanwhile, Cilla began making quilts and blankets for friends and family and before long her talent was sought after and people were wanting to pay for her creations. After 20 odd years of not sewing, Cilla rediscovered her love for sewing and it became a daily obsession.
On July 1st 2016, Happiness is Handmade officially began. Ebony and Cilla decided to start attending local markets around Yanchep and Mt Barker, Western Australia and sold handmade baby products. But of course it didn't end there soon they were making pet accessories, clothes, home decor, bedding and much, much more.
A website soon followed and their products were being sold to not just friends and family but complete strangers. They specialised in custom orders and loved the challenge, creativity and excitement in all the different products they were being asked to create.
With their love for handmade, attention to detail and desire to perfect, the possibilities were endless and no creation was too big or small!
