House Warming Gift

I have two close friends who have just bought their first house together and are having a party tonight. Since we are in full swing of the holiday season a pair of homemade stockings seemed fitting. I recycled 2 great sweaters and added matching red wool loops. I hope Santa stuffs these full!



New Tote Bag Design

This past weekend I ventured into the fabric pile and started exploring. I began by recycling some old leather and creating the straps for a new bag design, next I pieced together the olive cotton canvas upper with the navy nylon bottom. I finished the tote off with a dark denim lining. Stay tuned for new additions popping up in the shop!




Blog Love

Today my lobster band necklace was featured on the lovely blog, Fore Front Fashion along with 2 other talented jewlers from Portland. Thank you Laura for the kind words!

Sweater Quilt Complete!

I finished my sweater quilt this past weekend and it is now up in the shop! This quilt is crafted of beautiful upcycled wool and cotton sweater swatches. Ivory, creams and oatmeal with pops of light and charcoal grays result in a calming organic palette. The quilt has 100% cotton batting, is backed with 100% prewashed cotton indigo gray fabric, and has been finished with hand-sewn edges.

Perfect as a cozy throw on your couch or an additional layer on a twin bed this quilt is ideal for cool, crisp days.
