About

We are two girls from Oklahoma (although sometimes it is suspect that we are two old and grumpy yiddish men trapped in female bodies) who like to make stuff. Lots of stuff. All kinds of stuff. From knit and crocheted scarves and hats, to sliced and diced tee shirt fashions, with little bits of other goodies like jewelry and hairpieces smooshed in between. We may have the stuff-making attention span of a cat on catnip.
Although that isn't entirely true, given that we have been making stuff together for over seven years, with the skills, technical ability, and equipment available just getting more advanced as we stumble along the way.
We started making clothes and accessories because the clothes and accessories available in our area weren't the things we wanted to wear. We kept doing it because it is fun. We like being able to make something new to wear if we don't feel like wearing anything in the…

We started making clothes and accessories because the clothes and accessories available in our area weren't the things we wanted to wear. We kept doing it because it is fun. We like being able to make something new to wear if we don't feel like wearing anything in the closet, and knowing that it fits us just right-in style and in size. Sometimes we make stuff just for fun. Sometimes we make stuff for the special people in our lives who can't find an item they want or something that is just right for them. Sometimes we make stuff because we need the money from selling the stuff we make. Sometimes we make stuff because we are too cheap or broke to buy something off the rack, that is often overpriced and undermade. And often we make stuff because something doesn't fit right anymore, or because we would never wear that pair of leggings again, or because one of us has a demon moth that follows us around and eats phantom holes in clothing that would otherwise be in perfect condition which renders it unwearable; and throwing them away feels wasteful when there is so much trash out there, and so little earth left.
But we will continue to make stuff, since knitting needles and sharp shears will certainly come in handy in case of zombie uprising, and we hope you like the stuff we make as much as we do. Happy shopping.
