Tracy B Designs

Painted Pudgy Tag-a-long Plush, Stuffed, Painted Toy, Ollie Owl

Delightful designs & fun textile applications are the trademark of Tracy B Designs. A combination of sewing, beading, embossing, mini paintings and ultra fun & pretty trim accessories are featured.

I was raised in Michigan and graduated from Michigan State University with a degree in advertising. For more than 24 years, I’ve maintained a career in marketing with hands-on creative development, working in fashion, retail and consumer goods & services.

My on-going passion for textile art blossomed from a hobby into a business idea in 2004, as I refined my craft … and the spark for Tracy B Designs was ignited. In November, 2005, I transitioned from my full-time marketing career to spend more quality time with family, manage creative consulting projects and pursue the growth of Tracy B Designs.

I’m a wife and mom to two wonderful children. I enjoy cooking, I cry when watching sad movies, I love licking the bowl when making brownies, and I often fall asleep at night thinking of my next fun creative venture.

I'm inspired by texture, color, and everyday moments. I take great pleasure in creating delightful art-cessories for individuals and homes -- little treasures that will bring a smile to your day. My hope is that it’s just as fun to give a gift from Tracy B Designs as it is to receive.

I'm also inspired by an inner drive that has a passion for creativity, and more recently, a focus on recycling or re-purposing materials into whimsical pieces of art.

I'm motivated by friends, families and customers who appreciate my work and encourage me to keep creating.

It’s hard for me to pick just one favorite item, but an on-going favorite has been my button and puzzle piece bouquets. They are unique, fun to make and a great way to re-purpose everyday items into whimsical pieces of art.
