Applesauce, sweet whimsical clothing for children

Hello, my name is Elizabeth Buenrostro and my Business is called Applesauce. I started Applesauce about a year ago. After being inspired by my new born niece to created fun one of a kind clothing pieces for her, I decided to downloadpursue the passion that I had for her into my own clothing line, for children. After a slow six month process of just me I asked my creative sister Monica to join me in helping Applesauce grow and now we are two sisters that ┬álike to create fun and whimsical one of a kind children’s clothing that is made with vintage fabrics, and inspired my vintage clothing.

What inspired you to go into the craft business, do you still have a day job? I have always been into anything that has do with art whether it be painting, drawing download-2or sewing. After being inspired by all things art, I realized that I have a real knack for sewing. Discovering the art of clothing really inspired me to create one of a kind clothing pieces. Yes unfortunately we both have a day job I (Elizabeth) am a merchandiser at a retail store and my sister (Monica) is a dental technician.

What do you like best, coming up with ideas or executing them? Executing them is the best because while making the garment I will sometimes change things here and there, as I start to see it develop I get inspired to do more things like mix different colors add something there take away something etc.

What’s the best thing about what you do? And the worst? The best thing about what we do is that we use download-1vintage fabrics, buttons, trim, etc which is being eco friendly to the environment by not buying newly produced fabrics. The worse thing about us is that we do- is that we generally only go up to a size 5, because after that age kids tend to want general retail store clothing, we can to custom orders in those rare cases of bigger sizes.

What are your creative influences? Vintage fabrics, vintage shops, sea creatures, kids, mythology, textures, buttons, vintage prints, nursery rhymes

What’s the best advice you have been given about your business or craft practices? to market ourselves in many different ways, like craft fairs, and the internet and to research about events and internet media

How do you stay inspired? The more we create the more we are able to have new ideas, and whenever we do fairs it is always an inspiration to keep creating.
