Welcome to Hotch Potch!

To put it simply, we are 2 sisters who just love cute things!

Hotch Potch, a Dutch term, means "
a jumbled mixture," which is what we do...a little this and a little that. We credit our Grandma Violet (who is Dutch) for showing us an appreciation for handmade goodness.

We love fabric and even better, turning it into something adorable for our kids, our friends, and ourselves.

We love digital design and turning great pictures of our kids into cards, announcements, and digital scrapbook pages.

We love little details that make things/people stand-out as original and different from store-bought items.
We love hand-made creations!

To start off, we are posting items we are currently taking orders for. As the seasons and holidays change, we will be adding more.

How it works:
Contact us by email, tell us what item(s) you want, what size, what colors, and when you would like them done. Due to the nature of fabric, variations may occur, but we promise to make something just as cute if that certain fabric is no longer available. We will notify you if we can't get the exact same fabric before we move ahead. It typically takes us 2 weeks depending on the size of the order. When completed, we will discuss shipping or pick-up options.

Check it out and enjoy!

The Olivia Top & Girly Stripwork Skirt

This has been my favorite outfit! The best thing about it is my daughter has worn it for 2 summers now! In one picture she is 1 yr. old, and in the other she is 2 1/2 yr. old. We also wanted to show how you can coordinate outfits together. The skirt is made up of 6 different fabrics in the main panels, with additional fabric on the hem and elasticized waist.
The top fits so cute with shirring around the arms, neckline, chest, and waist. Contrasting sleeves(short or longer). I have found in the past that it is hard to find a top that goes well with that darling skirt you buy at the store because it either hangs low on the skirt or you have to tuck it in. This top solves that problem and really is to die for! Looks cute layered with long sleeve shirt. Many fabric possibilites! Complete outfit comes with a matching headband or clip for hair!
Skirt Only: $35.00
Complete Outfit: $60.00

The Lily Dress

This dress is great for all ages, but especially older girls. My daughter is 10 and loves wearing this as a nice dress to church, but also with jeans or leggings to school. It has shirring around the arms, neck, chest, and arms. Finished off with a contrasting tie around the waist.
Cost: $45.00


We love these hats and so do our girls! Can be made with or without ruffle, available in different colors. We can even make a studly boy or mommy version (without ruffle)!

Cost: $25.00

Slipper Boots

We found this adorable pattern and we made these over Thanksgiving break. We weren't sure just how cute AND cozy they were until we put them on our feet.
We haven't taken them off since, except for when we leave the house. The best part is that the inside lining is the softest cuddle fleece. The only bad thing about them is how long it took us to assemble them. We love them! Our little girls have a pair of their own.

We are overwhelmed with the response we've had from these slippers!

These have been very popular.

Email us if you are interested in a pair.

Comes in all sizes!

Zannah Bag

All little girls love purses to tote around their treasures! This functions perfectly as a scripture bag or just for fun! Made with 3 different fabrics, it has a pocket inside and finished nicely with a flower applique.
Cost: $20.00
Optional* - $30.00 (Includes a sturdy little flip book of the Articles of Faith with ribbon and a scripture marker)

Cozy Baby Bunting

We take a onesie and add cozy minky or flannel to make this

a perfect outfit/pj for a newborn baby.

Makes diaper changes a breeze!

Girl style comes with a ribbon tie at the bottom, boy style with elastic

Perfect baby gift!

(Even better, add a matching burp clothe and/or a blanket...we make those too)

Cost: $25.00
