Welcome to CalicoApple!
I’m Sarah, take a seat, make yourself at home and I’ll tell you a bit about myself.
I’ve been making teddy bears since I was a child and rag dolls for nearly as long. I’ve made them for all the new babies in my life (and for some grown-ups too).
Since having three new people of my own, my making has taken on a life of its own. I’ve discovered I can combine my love of vintage fabrics with my creating, making the process especially satisfying. I use vintage pure wool blankets for my bears and beautiful vintage lace doilies on my dolls. This makes each one unique and extra special. I love how every bear develops its own personality as it comes together.
Now I’m taking the plunge into selling my handmade items. It’s a scary and exciting process, I’m hoping you’ll keep me company on the journey as I share the trials and tribulations I face as I make new friends from vintage threads.
