++++++++++++++++++++MY SHOPS!++++++++++++++++++++

Welcome to fancyfeathers57!! My store is filled with truly unique, one-of-a-kind original works of art!! All my designs are recycled/altered/redesigned or repurposed using materials I find ay various places. I LOVE giving something old and discarded a new & improved life & look!

++++++++++++++++++++ABOUT ME!+++++++++++++++++++

I've been sewing/crafting since Jr. High when I took my first Home Ec. class. Over the years I've embroidered, cross stitched, crewel stitch, appliqued, knitted, crocheted, macremed, hand sewn, machine sewn, darned, mended & repaired. I've sewn for myself, my husband, my kids, other people, for free & for profit. I've made shirts, dresses, pants, vests, jackets, aprons, tops, doll clothes & furniture, pillows, curtains, ornaments, dolls, stuffed animals & costumes. I've tried my hand at candle making, jewelry, hair accessories, furniture, decorated baskets, memory books, wall hangings & plant hangers. I've glued, stapled, hammered, nailed, painted, tie-dyed, batiked, collaged & decoupaged.

I'm not sure there is much in the craft world I have not tried!

My favorite all time way to craft & create, however, is to take an item I've found & change it's looks, design & purpose!


I have been a recycler from way back. In other words I hate to throw anything away because I feel I can reuse it somehow, someway. I've reused shoeboxes, cartons, jars, empty spools of all kinds, old furniture, tool racks, empty paper towel & toilet paper rolls, magazines, cookbooks, children's books & even textbooks. You name it, I can find another use for it!!

************************"green" jeans by fancyfeathers*********************

My items are truly one-of-a-kind originals! You will not find any two items that are exactly alike. I love to shop at thrift stores, garage & rummage sales etc. for clothes, scarves, curtains, bedding. Anything I can find to recycle/alter/redesign. The things I make are mostly made using denim, hence the name "green" jeans. I love to take something plain & embellish &/or alter it to make it into an original.
All of the items shown are pre made by me & ready to be sold & shipped. However, if you have something specific in mind, I may be able to create something unique to your specifications. Just email me & I'll see what I can do.

Due to the various embellishments & materials used I do strongly recommend hand washing and line drying.

+++++++++++++++MEMORY & ALTERED ART BOOKS+++++++++++++++

I started scrapbooking over 10 years ago. It has evolved from using standard kits to using all kinds of materials. I don't stop with just cardstock paper & stickers. I like to incorporate ribbon, napkins, tissue, hardware, maps, brochures, invitations, cards & other found objects for a unique look. I just started making altered art books about a year ago. I love these books! they are so original & one-of-a-kind, made specifically for the customer. I love nothing more than to scour thrift shops for children's books, as I love the illistrations used. My altered books have somewhat of a child like look to them because of that. I even use old children's board books as the canvas for the book.
I personalize the altered books using favorite color, animal, photos & other things that are important or meaningful to my customers.
My memory & altered books are custom made & therefor can take anywhere from 1 week to 1 month depending on the size & how many orders I have pending.
I also make/sell pre made smaller sized scrapbooks that are theme specific. All you need to do is to add your own pictures to it. Or for an additional small fee you can send me your pics & I will add them for you. These smaller books can hold 30 or more pics depending on how they are cut/cropped.

Well that's about it! Thanks for taking the time to check out my store! Please come back soon & May you have a very blessed day!
