When I was little I use to paint rocks from my yard and try to sell them. I also made mud pies, but they were harder to transport and market to customers.
I love to see a vintage, wool cape be turned into a rocking tote bag. Or an apron from a gorgeous forgotten twirly skirt. So became my Hobo-Chic that I bring you now. A little quirky and always original!
I use many different fabrics. Many are recycled from something else and give the item that funky hobo style we love. I love hand stitching and many times I will use vintage thread because the colors, the feel and yes the strength. I try to incorporate vintage, old recycled items in most that I do. It connects me to the past in a wonderful way. Wondering who owned this spool of thread, what did the kitchen look like where this old apron once lived?…
