My dear friends,
Today I’m more than happy to announce that my shop is now open. Seconds ago I hit the “Activate” button and now it’s all out there and I’m relieved and yes… happy. I had the time of my life making all these items, looking for the fabrics, searching for good materials, having ideas, developing and sewing. Oftentimes things didn’t turn out the way I wanted but in the end all items are one-of-a-kind, unique and individualistic.
Every single item is handmade, I dedicated lots of time and love into each one. My sewed items are mostly made out of vintage fabric. Sometimes I mixed and matched old and new fabrics, the oilcloth that I’ve found is from Denmark and a dream to work with and it looks just wonderful. The designs of the vintage fabrics are nonpareil. I’ve found them in a little shop that only sells second-hand fabric and most of them are over 15 years old. Those prints are not produced anymore and whenever the fabric is consumed I won’t be able to reproduce the item again. And since I can’t throw away scraps (maybe you remember my tips what you can make out of scraps) I used every single little piece for something new – the buttons! There are magnet buttons, button pins and buttons that you can actually use as buttons :-) I hope you enjoy stumbling through the aisles.
And and to thank you all and because it’s the grand opening today I would love to give away one lovely foldable cosmetic pouch. It’s made of beautiful white cotton with subtle little flowers, a hand-stamped patch of another vintage flower fabric is sewed in the front. There is a brown and white crocheted ribbon to give the pouch a romantic look.
Inside there is gorgeous danish oilcloth with roses on light pink polka dot background. You can put all kinds of cosmetics in there. Even if they spill you can wipe the mess away and everything will be beautiful again.
