Well I’ve been sewing! I like to categorize my crafts into separate categories, those that I practice to sell and those I practice for myself and sewing falls in the latter category. You won’t find me selling things that I sew but I plan on making some more new duds to sport this summer. Working next door to a craft supply store has it’s perks, one of which is being invited to staff sewing night.
The lovely ladies at Fancy Tiger Crafts welcomed me into their drool worthy workspace and after 2 hours and constant guidance from my good friend Tina of Fast Geek Boutique, I emerged with a perfect pair of summer shorts! I plan on making at least 2-27 more pairs of these bad boys.
And of course what kind of photo shoot would this have been without a fun one…
This is how we do it!
I am pleased to announce that you can now find becky’s buttons & things at two locally owned boutiques here in Denver, Rakun & Fast Geek Boutique. Rakun is nestled in the Arts District on Santa Fe and specializes in locally made goods as well as recycled and upcycled wares.
The owner Meghan makes these adorable hand-stamped children’s clothing and shoes. Needless to say I’ll be headed back soon for a pair of those anchor shoes.
