Hello! I'm Sarah, from Two Brown Bears.

After my second son was born, I took extended maternity leave so I could be with the kids. Not one to sit still for very long, I enlisted my talented Mum to teach me to sew some basic items. That day we made a dress and I thought it was so difficult and such a long process! But with some practice, online patterns, tutorials and experimenting with items, I started to love this new-found hobby.

Soon I was sewing for my boys and then decided to leap into 'market life'.

For me, sewing is self-care – I LOVE it and enjoy listening to podcasts or audiobooks while I sew. Seeing my clothing on babies and kids in photos online or out and about on the streets is so thrilling.

Serious happy dances are done with all orders – my kids are now part of this and enjoy ‘helping’.

What you can expect when you purchase an item from Two Brown Bears:
  • 100% handmade products – designed and made in Ballarat.
  • Comfortable and modern style.
  • Practical clothing which is also fun so kids can simply ‘be kids’.
  • Different fabrics and designs are sourced from local stores as well as overseas.
  • Good quality cotton twill and cotton lycra to ensure softness against your child’s skin.
