Travel-size wet bags, novelty bibs, and burp cloths for boys and girls
Where did you learn this art or craft?
I learned to sew when I was seventeen, in Mrs. Jones’s sewing class.
What inspires you?
Portland, OR, which is where I lived before moving to Oklahoma. I keep pictures of Oregon above my sewing machine, and I look for fabrics that remind me of the Portland aesthetic. I’m also inspired by my son, Severin, who is a pretty cool toddler and deserves equally rad accessories.
How do customers respond to your work?
People always compliment the fabrics I use! I do this for parents like me, who are sick of products that push gender stereotypes (trucks, footballs, princesses, etc.) and prefer something out-of-the-ordinary. Customers also love the fact that my wet bags easily fit in their purse, and have an extra pocket for wipes!
Are you introducing any new products at Deluxe?
I’ll have burp cloths, organic wooden teething rings, and pacifier clips that match the wet bags and bibs. These items won’t be available in my online store until after the Deluxe Indie Craft Bazaar.
What other artists are you looking forward to shopping from at Deluxe?
Microcosm Publishing, MoviesArtwork by Felix Matos, Tail Feathers Diapers, and Oh Honey Child, just to name a few. I’m honestly looking forward to browsing every single Deluxe artist’s booth!
Anything else you’d like shoppers to know?
Wet bags are generally used for cloth diapers, but you can use them for disposables, wet bathing suits, soiled underoos, loofahs/toiletries, makeup, toys, art supplies… Anything, seriously, they’re great.
