Allisa Jacobs makes beautifully sewn products in just about every form from cosmetic bags to baby bibs and burp clothes. A quilter a heart, Allisa uses lots of bright & happy fabrics that clearly communicate the love she puts in to her work.
I was introduced to Allisa’s work earlier this year when I received one of her cosmetic bags as a birthday gift from a friend (the first picture). The bag was adorned with the most adorable little felt flower which I found, under further inspection, was a removable pin. I have had my eye on similar flower pins over the past year or so but couldn’t make up my mind as to which one I should get (I’ve been called indecisive once or twice…). Well, thanks to Allisa, my flower pin decision was officially made – I was instantly smitten!
I was so smitten in fact that I immediately contacted Allisa to see if she could make me more flower pins as I had determined that I must have one in nearly every color. Allisa happily obliged and was so delightfully friendly and easy to work with. The last image depicts only some of the colors she made for me. And it’s funny now, because my flower pins have kind of become my staple accessory – I am rarely seen without one. I highly recommend you check out Allisa’s Etsy shop – I’m sure you will find something you covet!
And thanks again, Allisa!
We all have a favorite pair of jeans, a uniform of sorts. And if you’re like me, you wear them till it hurts. Or you bust the ass out of them after a holiday season of too much good food and drink. Oops, TMI. Sorry.
