It's been a longer process getting orders filled after such a eventful summer but I'm happy to report that I'm clocked back in and ready to start creating again! This skirt was especially fun to make as I love working with the bold colors often seen with African wax cotton. @ninilchikpeddler I'm mailing this beauty to you today!

Halloween costume success! After kicking the idea around for years I finally got to be The Second Amendment (the right to bear arms). So. Many. Giggles. I also spelled "amendment" wrong on my shirt 😫(PSA: don't drink and craft!) #noautocorrectincrafting #spellingfail #csgetdegrees #beararms #secondamendment #amendmenthasonem #halloweencostume #halloween #dreads #dreadbun #righttobearears

If anyone needs me, I'll be using my Vincent Price voice for the remainder of the evening..... . . . #thriller #vincentprice #rip #halloweencostume #michaeljackson #mj #moonwalk #zombiedance #sewingismysuperpower

This summer I revisited the idea of making wrap pants again as a compliment to my wrap skirts. I wanted to improve the design and decided to start with a pair of pants for myself (swipe πŸ‘‰πŸΌ). There are still some kinks to work out but I'm liking the progress so far. Plus I had enough fabric left over to make a posh little bag! . . . #wrappants #matchingbag #newdesign #pantsvsskirts #wontonbags #cutelittlebugger #getshitdone #fall #orange #orangeisthenewblack #orangeandblack #aplacetoputyourthings #female #maker #makersgonnamake #craftproblems #shouldhavegonetodesignschool #onemansweatshop #learnbydoing #selftaught #findyourpassion #wheredoyouramblewithyourbramble #bramble #brambleak

So after staring at my roll of waxed canvas for nearly a year, I finally decided to play with it. The wax comes from bees and the more the canvas is worked the softer and more textured it becomes. Here's what I like the most: you can "reset" the canvas (in other words, unwrinkle it) by using a hair dryer to heat the wax. I decided that these 2 bags were fun representations of a late summer and beautiful fall, what do you think? Should I make more of these?

Dainty on the outside, nerdy on the inside. Fun fact: the inside glows in the dark πŸŒšπŸ”¦πŸ™ŠπŸ‘

Fun fact: my mom asked if I would make her a long wrap skirt for my wedding, using a grey and black fabric we found online together that blended with our wedding colors. I made the skirt in Alaska, shipped it to NY so she could piece together her outfit, and then I hemmed it when she arrived in Alaska for the wedding. She looked amazing in it- especially on the dance floor!! . . . #mymomrocksbramble #hereditarydancemoves #theredbedayslikethis @dicassucci
