Kitty Loo's Profile

About

I have been making handmade earrings since 2004, sewing quilts since 2001, and recently began making DiY clothing to sell. Making unique pieces has been a wonderful outlet for my creative side, and also a great alternative for you!! I offer special, and usually one-of-a-kind, items that you cannot purchase in any store/outlet, or will never see anyone else wearing (seriously, how embarrassing is it to see the same girl at a concert wearing the same top you are??).

Making these items combines my multiple passions: I get to shop (woo hoo!) at vintage stores, represent good music and clothing style, utilize my great skills at sewing, creating, balancing, and letting my imagination run wild!

I have been sewing since the age of 3, when I started with basic cross-stitching and making clothes for my Barbies. That progressed to making a lot…

I have been sewing since the age of 3, when I started with basic cross-stitching and making clothes for my Barbies. That progressed to making a lot of the clothing and accessories I wore throughout middle school and high school. So obviously I take pride in what I make; enough so that I wouldn’t sell anything that I wouldn’t wear myself! Items for my earrings come from knick-knack party stores and a couple renowned wholesale companies. Shirts are purchased both new and pre-loved (vintage) and made with all other new materials. I do not screen print any of the shirts I sell, but shirts featuring band names, images, logos, and other copy-righted materials have been paid for in full (by myself) so these musicians have received their royalties before these items can be passed on to the fans like you!

I use a Singer 4-thread serger, and top stitch when necessary using my Singer sewing machine. This creates professional quality garments and quilts that will stand up to wear and tear. All my items come from a smoke-free environment. I make an effort to keep my office/studio pet-free, but sometimes my baby dogs like to sneak in for company. If you are horribly allergic, do let me know and I’ll take special care and extra precautions with your item(s) and use microbial Febreze to eliminate any allergens that could bug you. I try my best to inspect all the items before they leave my hands, but if you receive something that has been misrepresented or flawed (since some of these shirts are vintage, I might have accidentally missed something), please contact me immediately and we will work something out.


***********************
Some interesting facts about myself:

*My favorite animals are piggies (and I don't eat any pork product)
*I have an extreme fear of rubber bands
*Sushi, chocolate, salt & vinegar chips, and mayonnaise are the best foods ever created
*I once grew my hair out past my butt and shaved it down to an inch (my 35" braid was donated to Locks of Love)
*Gin martinis ROCK! (and extra olives make it even better)
*When I was eight years old, I got a 3 inch splinter in the back of my leg and had to have it surgically removed
*I'm a badge bunny
*I have 16 piercings (and still counting)
*I enjoy to go hiking and camping whenever possible
*I'm a Leo (and I behave like one, too)
*The ability to curl & use toes like fingers is NASTY. I think feet are ugly!!!
*My favorite color is chartreuse
*I have a scar by my right eye that looks like a winking smiley face

And I LOVE my hubby, Jeff, and our four babies: Cameron (the human) is a fiery toddler, Daisy dog (a border collie/aussie shepherd), Merryweather (a pug), and Piggy Sue (you guessed it...a pig).
