JM: Iflin, when did you get started sewing and creating?

IFLIN: I started sewing about one year ago. I think it was in May 2005. Flori, a lady in church taught me.

JM: When did you start selling your designs on eBay and do you sell anywhere else besides eBay?

IFLIN: I started selling my designs after about two months of sewing. I did the first sample and Flori did all the custom orders (at first..) I also sell my creations on my website.

JM: What did you do before eBay?

IFLIN:I am a minister full time with my husband and stay at home with my daughter. I also sell children clothes online before started designing.

JM: Do you remember the first outfit you sold on eBay?

IFLIN:My first outfit was a twirly dress and pants set called "Asian cutie" and it sold for $39.99..:)..This is the picture of the outfit.

JM: How did come up with your name, Jolie B?

IFLIN:The name "Jolie" means pretty in french. I got the inspiration from Pslams 139:13-15 that ," All are created wonderfully and beautifully by the Lord..". So, I want my designs to give confidence to children who wear them knowing that they are created wonderfully and uniquely by God.

JM: Do you have a favorite item to create?

IFLIN: I like everything that is whimsical, bright, and colorful because I think children's clothes should stand out and fun.

JM: If you could learn some new skills, what would they be?

IFLIN: I would like to learn about creating patterns and modifying them..That way I can actually put down the designs in my head to actual thing..lol

JM: Do you have any big plans for Jolie-B?

IFLIN:My long term goal is to be able to provide jobs for stay at home moms through Jolie B, also to teach them entrepreneurial skills if they want to start selling their own designs.I would also like to be able to support the college students financially (the youth in my church) through this venue.

JM: What other things do you enjoy besides sewing?

IFLIN:I enjoy music a lot..So, jamming with other musicians, and going to the movies..I love movies..lol

JM: Anything else you would like to add?

IFLIN: I would like to thank Amy for inviting me today..It's an honor to be able to be here sharing my short experince yet in the design world ..:)..I would also like to thank my Lord Jesus Christ for all the creativity and grace that has enabled me to do what I am doing today. All things are really POSSIBLE through Him..:) God Bless..
