Introducing HomeSpun

Over the coming days I want to introduce you to a new project I have been working on. My friend Kathlene and I have started a new children's clothes line called HomeSpun. Are concept is to create a line of clothing using recycled fabrics and clothes. We are also working on a Vintage line too which I will blog about later.
We collected special pieces of used children's clothes and re-purposed them by adding applique and embellishments. This season we concentrated on a woodland theme. At the moment we have them available to buy on our etsy store but hope to have them available in LA stores soon.
