My organic line for kids~ Made by a Mama

Today I want to show off some of the new clothing I have been making for my Made By A Mama line. I design, sew, and hand dye with low impact dyes. I use organic cotton and hemp blend fabrics,which are so soft and feel really great to wear. I have been making appliques since I started sewing , I started sewing and selling clothing in 1994 (on the lots of Grateful Dead shows) . Lately I have been adding a lot of really cute appliques to my organic clothing for children. It makes the clothing really fun and it'a a great way to use up some of my multitude of scraps. I hate to throw them away because it just seems so wasteful. I will be adding a lot of new items coming up so keep checking to see some fun new items~

Paper Nor Plastic Reusable Bags

These reusable bags from Paper Nor Plastic are great. I received two of them when I had some of my clothing designs in an eco-friendly fashion show in Vegas. I use them all of the time. They are really strong, much stronger than any of the other reusable bags I have. I have loaded them up beyond belief with no problems. My Whole foods bags, which seem like little more than really strong paper ripped shortly after I bought them. Trader joe's also has some great bags, but they really don't compare to these Paper Nor Plastic bags. They have a deal when you buy three at $9.99 each you get one free.
