Meet the Maker
What I do:
Textiles. Creating. Repurposing. The things that I am passionate about are here. As a sewer, maker, and creator....I offer one of a kind creations using up-cycled textiles, imagination, and respect for materials.
Fabrics come from thrift shops, auctions, donations, etc. It is time intensive to find ,'harvest' and prepare fabrics for reuse. Being aware of the textile waste in our world has prompted me to reuse all that I can (and soap box about fast fashion at every opportunity). Google 'Fast Fashion'...you'll understand my passion.
No new fabrics are harmed in the making of any items in this shop!
Ridiculously fun to make, LOVEpiecefully Bucket Hats are a walking billboard for reducing textile waste while you look great!
Read on to find out how this all started:
Rewind to the beginning of the pandemic. In 2020 when no PPE was available for nurses and doctors. I thought I could help in some small way, so I dug out my sewing machine and started sewing. Soon, my husband and I were making and donating masks....lots and lots of masks. We worked at this full time 'job' for months and months. Working with the AUNTIE SEWING SQUAD on FB, he and I made and donated nearly 9,000 masks and sent them to people in need all over the country. Un-homed, migrants, our indigenous population...the forgotten folks. We are all only as healthy as our most vulnerable neighbors.
The thing about making 9,000 masks is that you create a TON of fabric scraps.I knew that I could not just toss these pieces of fabric out.
So, I started making. Bucket Hats, probably because of the endless design possibilities became my thing.
Tremendous resources are used to create fabrics, we need to use them to their fullest before we are done with them. It's just the right thing to do.
So, wear a reclaimed fabric hat....no doubt friends will ask you where it came from. You can start a great ECO-centered conversation, and you will be an environmental hero!
