Nimble Fingers & Minds!
I'm a writer, sewer, comic artist, and ex-librarian. I started selling bow ties on Etsy to spread my love for dapper dress, amusing clothing, and fine fabrics.
My clip-on bow ties are adult sized, however I can make child sized clip-on bow ties by request. Because my bow ties are clip-on and not self-tie, they require less fabric, making them easily affordable for daily use. They are crafted to appear as if they are self-tie, down to a jaunty twist of the center tie.
My call number hankies are spurred on by a fondness for books, a perverse desire for cataloging, and the wonderful goofiness of flagging. The selection in my Etsy store is from my personal library, however hankies can be made for whatever book you'd like! All hankies are snowy white, however call numbers can be customized in a colour of your choice....and I really am a librarian.
My neckties are a little shorter in length - perfect for shorter butches, genderqueers, femmes, studs, FTMs, and all necktie wearing folks that are under 5' 6". No more triple knots or trying to tuck your long tie end out of the way; this tie is made to fit you!
Owner, Maker, Designer
I'm an librarian, cartoonist, and writer who likes to make unusual things.
Lulu is the critical design eye behind Whippersnapped. All it takes is one hefty and decisive wave of her tufted paw, and books are picked for inclusion into our hankie collection, fabric is consigned to the dust heap, or sewn into spiffy bow ties.
