SweetBasilAvenue

Handmade. Repurposed. Vintage.

Denver, Colorado | 583 Sales

Announcement    Welcome to Sweet Basil Avenue! All of the handmade items in my shop are designed and sewn by me. I create beautiful, one-of-a-kind children's clothing from re-purposing items such as men's dress shirts, curtains, pillow cases, and I use some vintage fabrics as well.
After making the clothing, I use the fabric scraps to make as many other items as I can such as pacifier clips, marble maze games, bonnets, bibs, even down to the littlest scraps that I piece together to make the patchwork quilts. The remaining unused fibers get donated to a textile recycling program to help reduce waste.
I like to repurposed almost anything that I can get my hands on! I strive to create beautiful, useful items that you can be proud to purchase as show your support for a more sustainable environment and your interest in a better tomorrow.
If you see something you like, you better grab it! One-of-a-kind items go fast and there may not be another one exactly like it. Also, keep your eye out for repurposed or vintage items here and there.
Needing a gift set for someone? You can choose 1 sunbonnet, 1 zipper bag, 1 set of pacifier clip set and 1 bandanna bib for $30. ($50 value) Just send me message with your choices and I will put together a custom listing just for you.

About SweetBasilAvenue

Sales 583
On Etsy since 2016

Teacher. Mom. Etsy shop owner.

I am a teacher, a wife and a mom of two awesome kids. I enjoy teaching but I always seem to have a side project in the works. I'm constantly making gifts for people, repainting something, or making greeting cards. I even built a cardboard igloo for my daughter once.
I am also a big thrift store shopper. I get inspired when I see items that have been abandoned and forgotten. I love to think of new ways those items can be used, redone, or repurposed. It's like they take on a new personality and a whole new life.
Doing these things makes me happy. They bring me joy. That's what a hobby is supposed to do, right? I love the idea that, when I make something, or redo something, it's one-of-a-kind. There will never be another one exactly like it. I love having a hobby that gives me such a great sense of accomplishment every time I finish something and I love that the things I make bring other people joy as well. Whether that's through a handmade birthday card or handmade baby blanket.
That is why Sweet Basil Avenue was created. So that I can share that a one-of-a-kind item joy with others.
