old sweaters have new life

One more example of how old sweaters can be made into new, cool stuff! This is a fleece vest, enhanced using sewing machine and serger, detailed with a tiny acorn on the back! It keeps Fyn toasty on cold, snowy days in Michigan!

winter wonderland

Our weekend plans changed at the last minute and snow poured down and winds gusted. We missed seeing our family, but enjoyed our new little family unit.

etsy photo shoot

Fyn and I spent a day with our friend, Holly of, taking photos for our etsy site. He was a star, but was worn out by nap time! He fell asleep in his hand art printed shirt...

recycled baby hoodie and pants set

Keeping babies toasty!

This weekend found me at an art show, where I sold some sweet sweater sets. Here are a few to give you an idea. Fyn pulled off the matching hat in the pic here, but it's still around.

recycled rock star boyfriend shirt

Check out this recycled+revamped shirt, made with vintage shirts. It is now headed to Portland for some wild times.

It all worked out great in a trade. She chose a vinyl clutch for makeup in her purse. He chose a shirt and I picked some lavender comfort wraps - great gifts from Perfect for keeping my toes warm on the cold northern winter nights!

Bob- thanks for being a great model! Your identity has been protected for the blog...

halloween costumes

Halloween 2008
Tommy wanted to be a tree
for halloween, so we decided
Fyn should be a bat.

My friend, Elara, helped me
revamp a monkey bunting
to make it happen.

brown cashmere/merino sweater & hat

Finding cute clothes for baby boys is tough! I love things that have woodland creatures in rich earthy browns, mossy greens and warm autumnal oranges. Elfish hats make babies look so sweet, which is how I started recycling and revamping wool sweaters. Then I realized that I could make all kinds of toasty things for him.

My friend, Rose,
makes even more recycled designs for big and little people. You can find them at
