    Bobbins Aren't Bewildering Once You Get to Know Them.

    I started sewing because, as a lover of tote-bags, I noticed that there weren't a lot of cute and unique bags out there that fit my style. I wanted to rectify that by creating quirky, beautiful, and fun bags that are also heavy-duty enough for every day use.

    After I mastered the totes, my sights quickly turned to purses, clutches, pillows, and other items. I try to find unique, stylish, and (when possible) up cycled fabrics that bring out one's personality, whether paired with a classic black dress or jeans and a t-shirt.

    Soon, a friend and I began selling our wares at local craft/art shows, and after our success there, I decided to take my inventory to Etsy. While I love sewing, I've never forgotten my first love: the crochet hook, so you might find some cozy pieces here, too, if you prefer yarn to thread.

    My shop earned its name because when I first began sewing, the bobbin was easily the most bewildering part of the whole process. It often malfunctioned for reasons unknown to me. Fortunately, I figured out the secret of the bobbin, and my trusty sewing machine & I were on a roll. I have even come to love the bobbin, but I will never forget those first few weeks of pure bewilderment.

    Thanks for visiting. I hope you find something that fits your style!

      When I'm not making something beautiful, cozy, or practical, I am often planning my next trip, so I can capture some of our beautiful country through my camera lens, or I'll be at my day job (which I love) as a high school teacher.

    Welcome! Thanks for taking the time to visit my shop.

    All items are hand-made by me, and as such there may be some slight variation between items of the same style. It also means I can easily tailor most items to fit your needs. For instance, If you see an embellishment on one item that you would like added to another, I can often accommodate. Just ask!
