My name is Kat,
I started Skittle and Mouse while on maternity leave after the birth of my daughter.
When my baby girl started crawling I made her a fun pair of padded crawling pants to protect her knees from our scratchy tiles. Before long I'd sold a few pairs through word of mouth, then with the encouragment of some gal-pals I started selling at my local market.
You can still find me at my local markets from time to time, although these days I out-source the sewing and spend my days packing orders, answering your e-mails and chasing after my two minis instead!
