Peek. Bought. Handmade.

As part of our series Peek. Bought. Handmade, we'll take a look at some of the handmade pieces members of the Artisans Gallery Team added to their life.
Today, Jen from SewnNatural shares some of her latest handmade acquisitions with us.

"One of my very favorite Etsy artisans is SparkyJones, from British Columbia, Canada.  Among other things, she sews the sweetest upcycled and organic caps and hats. I never knew I was a hat girl until I bought my first hat from her - I didn't take it off much last summer."

"I recently got another one from her, and have enjoyed wearing the green corduroy cap as the winter transitioned to spring. And I know it will come in quite handy in the months after the baby, when all mussed hair will be so stylishly covered."

"And I recently discovered the beautiful hand folded paper cranes of Osaka's origamiyyc. In preparation for our new baby, my daughter and I strung these intricately folded cranes in a rainbow of color from transparent string, and a wool-covered embroidery hoop we put together."


"They float and move in the breeze, and the colors and shapes are very magical."
