Announcement   I will be attending a few craft shows in October so have deactivated some of my listings. Please convo me if there was something you were saving for. I may still have it! Everything not sold will be back on my listings in November.

Artsy and fun unique upcycled clothing! Show off your own unique style!
I love to sew free form and quirky things from clothes to quilt arts. Sewing is my freedom and my happy place! I love to re-purpose and upcycle thrift store finds into something artsy and fun. I use vintage linens and lace, silk ribbons and anything else I can find. Each item is made with attention to detail and I do my best to make them machine washable whenever possible.

Every item I make is a unique one of a kind creation. Please read my policies before ordering.

You can get notice of special sales and discounts. Just convo me your email address if you would like to be on the list.

About

Life's Too Short to Wear Boring Clothes!

With the 2008 economy downturn, I was forced to close my gift and quilt shop after 12 years, give up my beautiful log home by Yosemite and relocate to my mother's in Oregon. I'm on a life reinvention and this Etsy store is one of the steps in the path back to putting my life together again. Each purchase you make fuels my efforts and inspiration. Thank you so much for your support!

The fabrics tell me how they want to go into a design. I may start out with something in mind and before I know it, I'm in a totally new direction.

I love using upcycled clothing because there are so many choices between fabrics and designs to work with.

I work out of my basement sewing room filled with thrift store finds, vintage linens and baskets filled with ribbon and lace. I use mostly upcycled clothing but also leftover new fabrics from my closed quilt store. My happy place for sure!

    I have been sewing all my life and owned a quilt shop for 12 years. I'm now living in Oregon reinventing myself after the economy crash. Sewing upcycled clothing is my joy and work to support myself doing what I love. One sale a day is all I ask!

Welcome! All my clothes are made from upcycled clothing, vintage linens, lace and what ever else I can find. Each item is a one of a kind creation. I do my best to make each item machine wash and dry-able. Due to some of the more vintage lace on items, hand washing is recommended. Each item is made from upcycled preloved clothing and may have imperfections or wear due to that nature. Everything is washed before sewn.
