Announcement    Finally back a work after a few years doing a paycheck job. Unfortunately my dear Curious Orange Cat Alex has gone over the rainbow bridge. I miss him terribly but he will continue to live on here on Etsy.
Artsy and fun unique upcycled clothing and textile art! Show off your own unique style!
I love to sew free form and quirky things from clothes to fabric 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.

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 was 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 finally moved to the Pacific Northwest and have a sewing studio 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!
