Something new in the works….

Happy Friday, y’all!

I’ve been busy over here working on some new ideas and projects! I had a late-night, half-asleep epiphany a couple weeks back and decided to start producing some flowy, summery scarves and open up a shop on Etsy! It’s been a lot of fun going out to fabric shops and bringing home some gorgeous yardage to play with. I’ve even purchased a few vintage yards off Etsy to turn into wearable art! Recently I took a trip downtown to the Fashion District and scored 20 yards of two different fabrics for $20! Those will make a lot of scarves and other accessories. I’m working on a pattern for pocket squares and bowties, too. Maybe one day, I won’t even have to work anymore, and I can just make awesome accessories and clothes for people! Oh the possibilities….

If all goes according to plan, this lovely material will become 10 fabulous scarves!

My other Fashion District purchase. This one is a little heavier so I anticipate turning it into a few flow tops or rompers.

And my fun vintage Etsy find, circa 1960! Maybe this will be a men's scarf?

Here are the three prototype materials I purchases originally to test out my scarf pattern.

And the resulting delicious scarves! I can't wait to crank out more of these for my shop. Stay tuned for the link!
