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.

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.

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
