i love :: handmade romance

Handmade Romance by Evie B. is just too cute. I love the detail she puts into making each bearded boy badge and plush doll. Just in time for Valentine’s Day? Just kidding! Here is her story in her own words (from her etsy profile) …

To this day I carry a permanent indent on my index finger from hours spent clutching pencils while drawing as a child. During these years I spent equal time in both the city and the country. Currently I live in the city of Melbourne, Australia.

During the time I lived in the country (which was well before the wonders of the internet — yep, I’m that old) I had very limited access to the latest clothing stores and outside inspiration. I would dream up outfits to wear to the end of year school dances, and along with the help of my mum we’d create something individual, unique and handmade. It was during this time I also learned the basics of knitting, sewing and crocheting. Thus my romance with all things handmade begun.
