Amber- Owner of That Fat Wombat

I was fortunate enough to sit down with Amber, the owner of That Fat Wombat, a fun, handmade clothing business in Ottawa at her first ever vendor event. After running her business online for the last two years, she is venturing into the world of markets and vendor events as well.


I was fortunate enough to sit down with Amber, the owner of That Fat Wombat, a fun, handmade clothing business in Ottawa at her first ever vendor event. After running her business online for the last two years, she is venturing into the world of markets and vendor events as well.


That Fat Wombat started as a passion project, sewing outfits for her kids in fun materials and patterns. Suddenly she had accumulated more clothing than her family needed, so she took her passion online and has been in business ever since.


As a busy mom juggling the needs of a teenager and the needs of little ones, most of her work is done in the evenings when everyone is in bed.


More recently, Amber has created her own easy to follow sewing patterns for any other crafty mom's looking to create custom outfits for their family. She has also started dabbling into adults clothing so she can get in on the fun outfits she makes for her kids.


As always, I asked Amber what is the best advice she could pass along to another mom trying to build a business. Her advice is to really learn the value of your time and to prioritize accordingly. So often we undervalue ourselves and get caught up in our businesses that we forget why we decided to be an entrepreneur. She makes a point to be present and leave the work aside when her kids are up, and gets down to business during nap time or after bed time. Plus you have to really love what you are doing, if you are not passionate about your business, the motivation to work after your day of parenting is done will be minimal.


Feel free to check out my full interview with Amber below, or find her on Facebook and Instagram to place your order for adorable custom clothes.
