What Started As A Hobby...

...has now blossomed into something bigger! I started with small things like bottle cap necklaces and crocheted items. I just sort of lost interest in the bottle caps and an unfortunate work injury took me out of commission for crochet, so I moved on.

Over the last 15 years, I took a semi-active interest in sewing. I did a few cosplays by hand and even did my own accessories. I didn't quite have the solid foundation in sewing technique that I do today though. A few years back (circa 2014-ish) I was inspired by an old coworker to give sewing wallets a try. She'd always show off such gorgeous creations and she loved strange and nontraditional themes for her fabrics.

With practice, time and the right supplies, my first wallet gift was to my best friend for her birthday. By my standards today, I don't know why she kept it xD

My inspiration comes from the fact that I grew up playing video games, watching anime and reading manga. Definitely not a traditional hobby of a girl growing up in the 90's. But as it turns out, there's quite a few out there like me, and they want things to carry their stuff in!
I strive to provide head-turning pieces that you can be proud to own. These are definitely conversation starters!

My goal is to provide a fashionable way to show your love in ways that are sure to get attention and in a good way :3 I will also try to bring more traditional crafts to the table as well in the form of wallets, purses and more. Come back often for a change in shop inventory. Thank you for stopping by! <3

Frequently asked questions
How long will my item take to arrive?

It depends on the item you purchased and how many other orders I may have at the time. If you've chosen a made-to-order item, I try to have any type of item completed within two weeks of purchase.

If you've purchased a ready to ship item, I usually have the item in the mail within 24 hours of purchase. Shipping time depends on your location and the method of shipping you chose at checkout.
