We are the world's worst fabri - holics. We cannot resist buying fabric even though we already have enough to supply a fabric store for years. We are currently interviewing therapists to help us with this problem but we really need someone who understands and enables us. Want to apply for the job?
Just looking around the etsy shops in my (???) spare time (actually I was tired of cutting out the dress I am making) and I happened upon ScienceKitty. Extremely cool stuff. ScienceKitty works in a lab by day and by night she creates artistic jewelry using repurposed items. It always fascinates me how people can see the beauty in what is essentially someone else's trash. The pictured earrings are made from pipette tips that would have been thrown away. They are so beautiful and unique and eco-friendly. She even makes pins using old television dials! How cool is that! What a conversation starter that would be if you wore it to work on your jacket lapel. ScienceKitty's items are not only unique and beautiful, they are very reasonable. Check out her shop here.
We met each other when our boys were in elementary school and discovered that we both had an insane addiction to fabric! As years went by and the material mounted, we decided to put our sewing skills and abundance of material to work and we started making reversible market totes. This has now expanded to children's clothing, aprons and hats. Karen has also now expanded to creating greeting cards from her personal artwork, which is amazing.
