Lynn Minney's Profile

About

The seed for Lynn Minney Designs was planted in 2008 when making my first bag as a gift for my sister. Since then I've discovered my passion to create new uses for old things like wool sweaters, jeans, vintage fabrics and buttons. I love to treasure hunt for materials at thrift stores, estate & yard sales and combine them into a one-of-a-kind accessories. Visit my shop at etsy.com/shop/LynnMinneyDesigns

Born & raised in Northern New York, I was surrounded by resourceful, creative people. My grandmothers, mom and aunts all sew. I watched them create beautiful clothing, dolls, blankets, etc. from fabric and yarn. I love creating things like that as well, but I love to make a new life for old items even more! It's just in my blood! It is a wonderful feeling selling someone a unique item know that they'll be carrying it around for the world to see!…

When I'm not sewing at home or at my FT job I can be found cooking up a storm, gardening or hanging out with my handsome hubby and fiesty little girl.

If you have questions about something I've made, something you'd like me to make for you or just want to say hi please convo me. I'd love to hear from you. Thanks for visiting me and check back soon for more new upcycled treasures!
