About

Why hello there! My name is Jordan, so nice to meet you! You’ve stumbled upon a a true “possibilities” person. It is a blessing and a curse to find potential in practically every discarded item or unreached idea or need. Sure, our apartment is constantly filled with “masterpieces in the making” and at any given moment each inch of our floor is covered with fabric remnants, but you can’t say I don’t see the possibilities in life!

I began my shop, littlemissmuff as a solution to a problem I was experiencing as a customer. I was taken by the luxe fur infinity scarves and wraps I saw at department stores, but was aghast as I turned over the price tag! One must expect to pay for high quality, yes, but isn’t there a more reasonable price point and a more unique design for the bargain/style hunters like me? I decided to try creating something similar and found that not only could I create the…

Why hello there! My name is Jordan, so nice to meet you! You’ve stumbled upon a a true “possibilities” person. It is a blessing and a curse to find potential in practically every discarded item or unreached idea or need. Sure, our apartment is constantly filled with “masterpieces in the making” and at any given moment each inch of our floor is covered with fabric remnants, but you can’t say I don’t see the possibilities in life!

I began my shop, littlemissmuff as a solution to a problem I was experiencing as a customer. I was taken by the luxe fur infinity scarves and wraps I saw at department stores, but was aghast as I turned over the price tag! One must expect to pay for high quality, yes, but isn’t there a more reasonable price point and a more unique design for the bargain/style hunters like me? I decided to try creating something similar and found that not only could I create the luxurious feel of fur against my neck for less, but could also customize each neck muff with playful and cozy flannels. I started wearing my muff to my classes as a dance instructor, and as soon as those dancers felt its cozy goodness, voila! littlemissmuff was born! The orders started flying out the door, and this dancer turned crafter found herself covered in faux-fur!

Each muff is carefully handcrafted from faux-fur and soft-to-the-touch flannel. Each muff is a treasure as only a few of each variety are made. I have recently added a “faux fur on faux fur” line to muff- true luxury for less! Each of these muffs is slightly larger in size, attributing to a more voluminous look. Included with each “faux fur on faux fur” muff is a one of a kind, vintage-inspired brooch, used to gather the muff at the side of the neck, attach a charm or piece of jewelry, or customize its styling.

The beauty of a muff, I have found, is its versatility and comfort. One can pair it with a winter peacoat and cute boots, to snuggle up from head to toe in the bitter cold or simply throw it on over a t-shirt or wrap on your way to the gym (or in my case, tap class:) to keep the body warm! In fact, as I sit here writing, I am wearing my most recent muff as our apartment has grown increasingly cold the past few weeks…the perfect “get-warm-quick” accessory!

A muff is a fantastic gift idea, if I do say so myself. I can’t tell you how many muffs have been made and sold for gifts. The ease and economical value in shipping alone makes it perfect for the holiday season and with so many different patterns, a muff is a perfect personal gift! Every muff purchased is delicately wrapped with raffia and includes an attached gift tag.

I have so enjoyed the process of creating each muff, keeping in my mind the potential wear-er as I pin and sew. As an avid bargain hunter, it gives me much pleasure to know I am producing a quality and affordable treat for my family, friends, dancers and customers! Thank you for supporting my “possibilities” addiction and allowing me to provide a little warmth to your cold weather months!
