The cutest pillow to put into our 1961 red Shasta camper! The package was shipped very quickly and included a sweet thank you note. I'll be checking back for future purchases!!

Bringing new life and a new story to vintage fabrics
Have you ever seen rice grow? Well, me neither! It is those little miracles of nature that always enchant me. I love to travel, capturing a photo wherever I go while at places that bring me incredible joy -- the ocean, the mountains, beautiful open meadows that lead down to the still of a mountain lake or in the presence of a simple flower drooping from a child's fingers. Combining my love to create something through sewing, painting or working with clay, I give my whimsy creativity an outlet.
In addition to loving nature, I'm also a huge history and architecture buff, so understanding how they made a vintage textile without the help of modern machinery, manufactured dyes, and synthetic fibers has always intrigued me. Someday, I imagine I will visit an old French Villa with curtains made in the 1500s and it will make me more than just a little giddy. I truly love the story of fabric. It is here, with KellinaDesigns, that I can bring a little textile history to your home, too.
My studio is stocked largely with vintage chenille bedspreads from the 1940s, - 1960s, originally made in the southern United States. I also stock European fabrics (mainly France and England), many of which were loom woven, block-printed or roll-printed, anywhere from the 1870s to the 1940s. Did you know that la chenille means "caterpillar" in French?
I love cute. whimsy. textures. ice cream. dogs. cats. college football. homemade mac 'n cheese. Tyler Florence's Organic Fried Chicken. art. of all kinds. art. friends. family. helping others. and art. and family. and family.
I am the sole "maker" of all items in the KellinaDesigns shop. I source my fabrics from reputable sellers; design, construct, market and ship each and every item I sell with a high sense of integrity and quality. I hope you enjoy browsing. Perhaps you will bring a little textile history into your life.

Hello, I'm Kelly and this is my shop! My goal is to repurpose vintage fabrics into something new and beautiful; hanging onto the "old" story of that fabric in a sweet and special way.
