Lightening fast shipment! The apron is so cute and very well made. I've already worn it several times while working on my crafts. I highly recommend this seller. She does beautiful work and immediately ships the item. Thanks again!!
Village Folk Handmade and Repurposed Creations
I came from a family of creative people who all enjoy art and antiques. I started out sculpting, carving and making dolls as a child. Through making clothes and accessories for the dolls, I learned that I also love vintage finds,wool felting and filling people's homes and closets with useful, creative wares that do more than sit on a shelf. Everything in my shop is something I have personally made and love. (I sell vintage goods also, on etsy)
I have had wonderful opportunities to live and travel to many countries. My colors choices and styles are often inspired by North and West Africa, Europe and Guatemala. My creations express my joy and wonder at my experiences traveling off the beaten path. Small villages, people, open markets and crafts all captivate me, thus my shop name, Village Folk.
I love rich, vibrant colors and the warmth of natural fibers. I hate throwing something out and often strive to find a way to give old things new life. I love flaws and imperfections and I am completely incapable of mass producing anything I do. Rest assured, my things are one of a kind!!

Owner, Maker, Designer, Curator
I started out making dolls and have learned over the years that I really love creating in more than just wood and clay, so I have branched into wet felting and repurposing of vintage finds.

To measure your head for a hat you will need a flexible tape measure. Measure all the way around your head with the tape sitting above your eyebrows and going around the back of your head where the base of a hat would sit on your head. This is the circumference. The other measure is the distance from one ear tip to the other ear tip. Start with the tape on the top of the eartip on one side and run it over the top of your head to the other ear tip. This tells you what kind of coverage my hat will give you. Don't pull the measure too tight--you want to take into account your hair. Both measurements are important to get the best fit. I work with antique molds that I alter to create modern styles, so I do not have the ability to make each style in standarized sizes and I cannot customize a size in advance. These measurements are your best guide for the hats you see in each specific listing. Also, each hat is completely unique. I don't use patterns for any of my designs, they are free-hand and eyeballed! I can't make more than one of the same hat design.
