Twilly23 plushies now in Eastern Oregon

I’m happy to announce that my plushies are now for sale at Pendleton Foundation Trust Fine Craft Gallery! Located in the Pendleton Center for the Arts, there are lots of talented artists featured. I’m so excited to be part of this creative community. I’m becoming known as an upcycled maker and was recently gifted two felted sweaters. These guys were […]

Owl Plushie

Earlier this year I designed a new plushie. Owls were appearing in numerous forms suddenly so I channeled that energy into a new design. This item is available for purchase in my shop. Like my other plushies, these owls are made from upcycled sweaters. The buttons, felt eyes and bows are also upcycled. Combining different patches of sweater material makes […]

Tooth Fairy Pillow

My latest design is a spin on a tooth fairy pillow. I decided to take it literally and created a tooth with wings. This item is now available for purchase in my shop. On the back there is a pocket for the all important tooth/money exchange. It’s large enough to slip in a folded up dollar for more valuable wisdom […]

Tunicam Cattus

My newest design is a cat named Tunicam Cattus (Latin for Tunic Cat). It’s made from upcycled sweaters. I’m selling both finished cat plushies and DIY kits for you to make your own. Both finished cats and kits use upcycled sweaters, yarn and buttons. You can buy both at Salty Teacup in Portland.

Renovare Monstrum

I’ve created a new monster pattern! This time it’s a sewing pattern kit that comes with instructions and all the materials you need to make your own monster. The precut fabric is made from up-cycled sweaters. The felt, yarn, ribbon and buttons are all up-cycled as well. I’ve chosen the name of this kit to reflect these materials being reused […]

Swift Bag Holder

This post was previously published on Think Crafts! If you knit or crochet you likely have a lot of yarn. I know I do! Skeins of yarn are pretty to look at but yarn cakes are great to knit with and easier to store. I use my Swift every time I buy new yarn. Swifts are great but they’re an […]

Upcycled Arm Warmers

I’ve been a fan of the artist Katwise for years. Her coats are works of art! She graciously sells pattern tutorials for both her upcycled coats and arm warmers. Recently I made myself a pair out of old tshirts. They turned out so cute! I’ll definitely be making more. One of them had the phrase “Enlighten Up” which I positioned […]

Cat Fur Hack

Recently I fixed my sewing machine with a clever hack. I inherited this machine and it’s pretty solid except that it was missing a small part. Usually there is a thin circle of felt that rests between the thread stopper and thread. The missing felt meant that the thread moved around the thread holder rod and sometimes both it and […]
