The Paper Addict: I love a whole bunch of aristic mediums, so many that it’s hard for me to decide what exactly I want to do! I love oil paints, fabric, paper, and photography. I dabbled a couple times in making candles. I thought about making soap…. I have sanded down furniture, stained or painted. Pretty much anything I looked at and thought I could make I have tried it or wanted to try it!
Hello, my name is Kelly Massey and this is my line of handmade wearables, Pretty Penny.
I live in West Hollywood with my husband and fantastic, fun, little girl who is seven. They put up with my piles and piles of fabric and leaning towers of ink jars relatively cheerfully because they are often busy making things too.
Lately, I have been screen printing and sewing scarves and clothing out of bright and soft bamboo and cotton knits.
I’m Rebecca, I’m the artist, seamstress, photographer, designer, model, admin, janitor, etc. behind retrofied. Retrofied grew out of a love for vintage fabrics – and a need to do something with an insanely large fabric stash.
All bags and patterns are original retrofied designs. Each design is something I have created to meet a need in my own life and love sharing with others.
I just love this amazing toddler dress.
Aunt Bucky provides a unique collection of modern Baby Bedding | Apparel | Pillows. The Aunt Bucky line is ever evolving and truly unique. Our collections will always include the same style selections and design sensibility, but the individual fabric prints may vary. This process is therefore somewhat improvisational and produces near one-of-a-kind pieces.
The story behind Moku Pe Pe is an interesting one. The shop owner, Kellie Crowe, spent eleven years on small sailing vessels, traveling from Europe to South East Asia. She was so deeply affected by the beauty of the islands she experienced, that she wanted to keep those memories alive in her home. What started as a mom making unique clothes and blankets for her own baby, has developed into a full collection of lovely baby blankets and yoga pants. All are hand-sewn by Kellie in her home, when she’s not working her full-time job.
I was immediately attracted to the vibrant colors and patterns. These blankets and yoga pants for babies offer a refreshing breath of island air. Perfect for those looking for a not-so-usual shower gift, or to preserve island memories of your own. And the blankets are made from pre-washed fabric and lined, either with fleece or batting, to be snuggly, warm and cozy.
I love that Moku Pe Pe’s designs are bold (definitely not your run of the mill infant gear), and unisex. With pattern names like Beach Baby, Puff The Magic Dragon, and Summer Flower Power, the infant yoga pants are lightweight and made for ease of movement and comfort, just the thing for an active crawler or toddler. The cuffs are lined with a contrasting fabric and can be cuffed at first, then let down as baby grows.
Kellie doesn’t shy away from sophisticated fabrics depicting dragons and pirate insignia, giving her work just a touch of edginess. Another nice thing is that the patterns mix well, so you needn’t worry if baby is wearing her Batik Baby pants with her Shanghai Blanket, she’ll still look like a little island princess. Stop by the Moku Pe Pe shop and have a look at all of her cute designs.
