Bought as a gift so didn't actually see myself, but the recipient was very pleased! Anne was very nice to deal with too.

Very comfortable. I ordered this by accident thinking they were 6 inches, not 10, but I liked them so much I kept them anyway. Even though they're quite long they don't show through pants unless you wear something like leggings (even skinny jeans are fine.) The only improvement I would suggest is to add another snap so that they can close up smaller, as right now they're about double the width that would be best for me.

About

Reusable Products for Home and Family: Made with Love in Portland, Maine

It all started with my needing a new clothespin bag. I used my old one to create a pattern for a new one. Once I made one for myself, I made more for family and friends. Then I heard the comment that many Etsy sellers have heard, "You should make these and sell them."
And so it began.

Clothespin bags first, reusable "paper" towels next, and then on to many reusable products including makeup pads, baby wipes, cloth napkins, and more.

The way I see it, when you buy and use a reusable product you are casting your vote for sustainability. You are saying I want to take care of the earth. You are helping your family save money and create less trash. You are showing your children how to care for the world they will inherit..

Think about the "use it once and throw it away" products in you house. What could you replace them with? Have a look at the products in my Etsy shop and make a start.

Many thanks to all my customers for choosing my products to buy.

XO Anne

    How often do you get to redefine fine yourself? At age 60, when I retired from a teaching career I began to sew. I had always know how to sew since junior high school, but now I was doing it for real. I earn my living sewing!

Welcome my Etsy shop!

I've been sewing for years and I love it. One of the best parts of being retired after a career of 25+ years in teaching is to have more time to do what I love: sew.

Please read all shop policies before ordering so as to avoid any surprises.

All items for sale in my shop are handmade by me in my smoke-free and pet-free home.

Thank you!
