About

Bright, Bold, and Vintage

I love the hunt for vintage textiles. I can find them at thrift stores, antique fairs , estate sales and places in between. Sometimes in my travels I find really awesome dresses, linens, scarfs, and jewelry. While I want to keep everything I find, Big Q is not willing to build me a garage to store them all. If I can't keep them I want them to go to someone else who will love them and enjoy them as much as I do. I hope you enjoy exploring my collection of vintage treasures in Big Q Little Q.

I started collecting textiles then I started sewing bags. I have always been drawn to fabrics that were bright, bold, and vintage. Stacks of vivid floral table linens were starting to pile up in a closet , taking up space. I thought I should do something with these, so I combined my love for bags with my love for textiles and Big Q Little Q Handmade was created. My bags are handmade using vintage textiles as well as both hand dyed and designer fabric. One of a kind bags you won't find anywhere else. For more information on my bags and process visit BigQLittleQHandmade.com.

When I'm not sewing or on the hunt, I'm outside gardening working on my green thumb. I love rock climbing and drinking coffee. I'm a wife to Big Q and a Mama to Little Q. We live outside of Washington DC , and enjoy taking advantage of everything that DC and the surrounding area has to offer: history, parks, museums, and fancy restaurants. On weekends you'll find us making memories in the mountains or walking our fur babies along the Potomac.

Hello and welcome to Big Q Little Q! My studio is my kitchen where I sew, design, and craft. I'm inspired by the bold colors found in vintage feed sacks and you will find that translates to my handmade goods.
