Found Treasures

Driving around my hometown one day, I saw an interesting, old white box sitting on the curb. Tucked inside was a shiny green sewing machine from the 1950s! I took it home, tuned it up, and began experimenting on old clothes that were cluttering up my closet. After much exploration and tomfoolery, I began making the pieces that are found in my Etsy shop today.

Now I enjoy spending my free time expressing my creativity through fabric. Shopping for fabric is half the fun; pairing colors, designing, and creating the bags is the other half. If there were another possible half, it would be taking my wares to Handmade events, sharing ideas with shoppers and other creatives, and being a part of the Handmade community.

I hope you enjoy my creations!
