6 Questions with ... Elizabeth from Plumber Bums

1. What is your business name and how did you come up with the name?

Plumber Bums is my brand. My husband and I were brainstorming one night and came up with it. But my cloth menstrual pads are called Sharkie Pads and they got named because my friends call Aunt Flo visiting "shark week" and I thought Sharkie Pads was pretty cute!

2. What do you sew?

I make cloth diapers and feminine products. My diapers are One Size pocket diapers and Newborn All In Ones with sewn in soakers. I also do other kid related sewing like ice packs.

3. What inspired you to start your own home-based business? Do you have any employess?

I was inspired by trying to fundraise for an adoption. The cost was overwhelming ($30,000) and I knew I could sell the diapers I had made to help us with that! I don't have any employees, it's just good ole me!

4. What is your favorite part about sewing?

I love trying new things or new fabrics
