My blanket is AMAZING! This is my second order and I could not be more excited. Kim is so easy to work with and works with you to help create the blanket you want. My blanket was put together so thoughtfully and came out perfect. Will definitely do business with her again.

I am so glad I found Kim! She was so thoughtful and willing to work with me from day one! I know when I mailed her my shirts and saw the idea for the quilt it would be beautiful! I had no idea it would completely surpass my expectations! I had a certain vision for parts of my shirts and she worked closely with me giving me options and making it a work of art! I now have all of my memories in one place! I highly recommend her to anyone looking to do something with old Tshirts! It shipped super fast despite the holiday weekend!!! Thanks again Kim!

About

Fluke listing turned into my best selling item!

I started sewing when I was young: fastest needle threader in my Home-EC class and LOTS of sewing wisdom gleaned from my grandma's patience on visits to their home!!! When scrunchies were popular, I made one in each fabric my grandma had in her stash!

My "day job" is Campus Ministry at a University; a rewarding, but not exactly lucrative career. I often pulled my sewing machine out to make Christmas gifts, baby shower gifts, basically any-time-I-needed-a-gift gifts... Before long I started thinking, "I could sell this stuff."

I started putting my design background from college into my sewing endeavors and opened a shop with Etsy. Trying to fill out my shop, I added an old tshirt quilt that I had made years back so I would have "one more item." It made my shop look fuller. Much to my surprise, my first inquiries, and eventually my first sale, were all from my tshirt quilt that I added on as a fluke!

Now, I make tshirt quilts on a regular basis on and off Etsy, as word has spread in my local community. I had a whole marketing plan in mind, but once the first domino started to fall, it hasn't stopped creating new sales.

I like sewing a variety of projects, but the more I sew tshirt quilts, the more "in love" I become with it. I love that almost all of my sales are custom orders where I have the opportunity to interact with amazing people! I love the dialogue as we figure out the best way for me to capture their personal project. I enjoy entering into people's celebrations as they celebrate: a birthday, Christmas, graduation, retirement, or the life of a loved one who has passed on. I am honored to enter people's lives to help preserve these cherished memories!

While I started sewing on the old machine I inherited from my grandma, I now have quite the Cadillac of sewing machines thanks to my incredible husband who sold his motorcycle so we could make the purchase! Now, that's true LOVE! [Thanks, hun, for your support!]

    My kids [4yrs & 2yrs] would like to take credit for helping to pin fabric together, but truth be told... they are not as much help as they think they are. :)
