I’m 27 and just move to Chicago from Boston, where I spent 4 years learning to love New England and indulging in my Etsy addiction.
Everything for sale was 100% handmade and sewn by me. My designs are all original and the majority of my materials are “up-cycled.” I use quality embroidery thread and 100% silk ribbon but my base fabric comes from deconstructed silk shirts found at goodwill... don't worry, I wash them first. I think it’s a great way to recycle these lovely fabrics and cut down on my supply costs at the same time!
check out my new blog, still a work in progress!
