Jill Harrell's Profile
All items in the shop are designed and made by me, Jill Harrell, in my San Francisco studio.
I earned my BFA in Industrial Design so that I could use art school to pay the bills. I secretly wanted to major in printmaking...I secretly wanted to sew every single day....I suppose I've found a way to combine my secrets with my goals here on Etsy.
In July 2006 I began the online Etsy.com shop experiment called Scabby Robot. The idea was to create a pseudo-anonymous venue for me to get feedback on my side projects and to explore my thinking on small business. I began by selling my silly robot illustrations: scabby robot, ear-trumpet robot, scarecrow bot, but quickly my interest in sewn 3D forms became apparent (read: all consuming). The experiment organically grew into a real online shop for my handbag and wallet designs…
