SewSmashing is taking a short break

Loading

Note from shop owner I've been informed by my doctor that the injury to my arm is due to repetitive motion stress from the past 8 years of constant sewing. If I want my arm to heal, then I am forced to take a break from sewing.

I WILL MAKE ORDERS for anyone who falls under the following categories...

- If you are a customer that has received silk samples and you are ready to place an order, I will make your order.

- If you are a customer that has browsed my shop before, and you are ready to place an order, I will make your order.

I regularly check e-mail every day, so feel free to contact me through Etsy or at: alexis(at)sewsmashing.com

About

Blending fabrics with imagination!

I turned a 180 degrees away from museum science collections and embraced the world of textiles! Taking a pretty piece of fabric and turning it into a three-dimensional wearable piece of art makes my heart go all a flutter.

It's fascinating to me combining the beauty of silk fabric with the intricate folding technique of origami. As a kid, my mother introduced me to origami as an activity to keep me entertained during a family summer vacation. I found it intriguing to take a boring piece of paper and turn it into an animal! I was hooked on origami.

I take great pride in sewing each silk origami butterfly, one at a time. By offering 100 different colors of silk, I am able to provide my customers with a one of a kind piece of fiber art that is unique to their personal taste.

Offered in 3 different sizes with the additional options of Swarovski crystals or pearls, as well as lace, I am able to customize every butterfly. That is what keeps this whole process fresh for me. When I personally work with each customer I see their own taste reflected in their custom request, and I take great pride in offering them a quality handmade item.

Custom orders are my specialty. I frequently work with custom bridal orders, and custom requests to match formal wear...or for a well deserved unbirthday gift!

    Living on a couple acres of land tucked into the hills of the east bay across from San Francisco, I pull from nature to inspire my creations. You will see my passion for textiles transform into beauty when you hold your own custom origami butterfly!

I hand make each item to the specifications of each customer. Turn around time will vary widely depending on the current number of orders I have at the time of purchase.

I use First Class Mail USPS. If you need your order rushed, please contact me prior to purchase and I will adjust the shipping cost.
