Very fast shipping. Rose was easy to work with regarding questions. She added a nice card with each piece sharing thoughts of use and her shop name. I am using these for table favors for my bunco ladies. They are always impressed with gifts from Etsy.

About

Aiming to add a splash of color and a dash of whimsy to the world!

Welcome!
Unique one of a kind and limited edition gifts and treasures, you’re sure to find something to make your heart smile. I aim to add a splash of color and a dash of whimsy to the world.

All of my items are handmade by me with only an occasional comment from my family and limited help from my son..

I’m delighted to have you visit my shop and I’m confidant you will find something to put a smile on your face!

Made from store bought fabric, buttons and odds and ends my items are either wearable or have function as well as cuteness.. I occasionally use fabric that I have designed and then had printed by Spoonflower.com.

Big Island Rose Designs was born out of my love for fabric yoyos. I started using them in the 90’s but my love for them goes farther back.
My Dad’s mother (whom I never met) had started this yoyo bed cover at some point in her life but never finished it. My mother inherited it. We did not know what to do with it but I was fascinated with the circles. As I recall they fabric was not very pretty but I still enjoyed them and would bring them out and try and lay them in some pattern. Then a traumatic event occurred (well traumatic to me at least!). I had to move to California to live with two of my brothers. I could only take what I could fit in the trunk of their car. So I gave away a lot of my things including my grandmother’s yoyos. Oh how I wish I had not done that!

Years later I started making my own and used them in various small ways, to decorate a man’s vest, to make a small pin, as barrette decoration, etc. One day I got the idea to sew some together in a flower shape and put a magnet in the middle. From there the needle nabber was born. At first I sold them through local quilt stores (there were not many on the Big Island of Hawaii).

Other ideas were born. Once I saw a pineapple made with folded fabric squares and thought I can do that with my yoyos. The yoyo pineapple was born. A lot of what I do has a practical useful application presented in a delightful, colorful way. And I’m always open to custom requests!

Another of my fascinations is buttons. From playing with my mother’s button box to having a passion for buttons, buttons play a large part in my work. I love to wear them as bracelets, necklaces, and hair accessories and I always get compliments when I’m wearing one of my creations! I’m sure you will too!

I found Etsy by searching for a supply item and I was thrilled. I had considered other venues but wanted to avoid any bidding process so I set up shop here and added other items as I developed them. Some of my items may eventually be moved to another shop but for now Big Island Rose Designs is the prime shop for my handmade items.

All of my items are handmade by me with only an occasional comment from my family.

I’m delighted to have you visit my shop and I’m confidant you will find something to put a smile on your face!
