Check out this gorgeous organic baby set on ebay!
Leah Siemens, one of our amazingly creative customers, has started a business that takes advantage of her incredible sewing skills. Her first auction is on ebay right now, and you only have a day to get your bid in. So start typing!
Here's what Leah has to say:
"Here are the pics and write up that are in my current auction, almost all of the fabric and notions came from Near Sea Naturals.... This is the first set that I've made to sell, but I plan it to be the first of many more - I'm starting with baby, but plan to do other household items as well.
"A bit about myself. I am 36 years old, and the mother of four children, 3 girls ages 8, 23 months and 10 months, and a boy aged 7. I grew up with a love for nature and taking care of the earth - my parents gardened organically while I grew up and I follow their example. My Grandparents lived on a farm with no electricity - my grandmother raised sheep, sheared them, spun the wool and died it with natural dyes from plants that she made herself. She made beautiful things that she sold all over the world.
"2 years ago we had to shut down our family business as my husband could no longer do that work, and now he is recovering from spinal surgery. Having had two babies in the last two years and not wanting to leave their care to someone else - my husband's condition doesn't allow him to care for them until he is fully recovered, I started to think about what I could do from home. So I took my love of things organic, and my love of fabric art, and decided to put the two together and see what happened! Here is my 'debut'."
Look at the incredible details on the set. The lace beautifully edges the quilt and crib skirt, the appliques are edged in colorgrown yarn, vintage buttons top the canopy, and so much more. This is the sort of creation I always wanted to make for my kids but somehow it never happened. (Something about a lack of time, or so I claimed ... but Leah has FOUR kids and is still making these incredible things. So perhaps I'll have to come up with a better excuse at some point...)
