Unique Creations for the Modern Hippie

When I attend local crafts fairs, invariably there is one person who says "Oh, tie-dye! Is that still around?" And I have to say, "Yes!! It is." I love all the colors and patterns of tie-dye, but I like to think that I have added a new, modern and fun twist with my "Anything on a Tie Dye" line of shirts. Each is individually hand-dyed. Once the color is on, then comes the fun part of my job: finding just the perfect image for each one. All of the designs you see on my shirts are drawn free-hand by me. Because of the uniqueness of the process, no two shirts are ever exactly alike. Whatever you are into, I can put it on a tie-dye.

But shirts are not all you will find here at Creations by Maris. I also have appliqued baby bodysuits, funky knit baby leg warmers, fun pumpkin and fruit hats (not just for babies!), my super-popular double-layer touchscreen gloves, made-to-fit boot cuffs in sizes up to XXXL, dog cowls, emoticon party favors, and more.

If you can't find just what you like, please ask; I love custom orders. There is nothing more fun for me than trying out something new and different. Some of my best ideas for new items have come from you, my customers, and I am always happy to hear from you.

    Not only am I the name behind the shop, I am also the artist. I am a homeschooled teen living in New England with my 2 bothers . . . er, brothers . . . 1 sister, a cat and a basset hound. If you look closely at my pics, you are sure to spot them all!

    I am Maris' mom and unpaid business manager. Because she is under 18, I deal with a lot of the logistics of running the shop but all the artwork and creativity is hers. I also have my own shop --

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

All items are machine washable unless otherwise noted.
We recommend air drying of all knitted and crocheted items, including appliqued bodysuits and shirts.

Many of our items are hand-dyed. This gives them a unique appearance and no two are ever exactly alike. The color intensity may vary from garment to garment. This is a result of the dying process. Our dyed items are prewashed before they are shipped to you and will not run or shrink. We do, however, recommend washing dark or bright colors by themselves or with other similarly colored garments. Hand-dyed items may lose a small amount of color intensity over the first few washings (however they should not appear "washed out"). This is normal and is not considered a defect.

Custom and personalized orders

Many of my items are custom-made in the size and color of your choosing. Please note processing times. At busy periods (typically Nov-Dec) these may be extended. Please message me ahead of time if you are working with a deadline and I will do my best to accommodate you.

My "Anything on a Tie-Dye" custom shirts typically take at least a week to make as there is a process for setting and drying both the dye and the ink. Again, please message me if you need your order by a certain date.
