dream weaver...

it's my pleasure to introduce autumn wallace from victor colorado.  she is a budding young artisan who has developed a very unique way of repurposing the worst of the worst clothing into the best of the best accessories!

 i'm totally in love with her creations she spins into yarn using discarded, outdated clothing.  she begins by cutting the garments into small strips, then attaches the strips together to make one continuous piece.  the fabric is then spun into 'yarn' using an attachment she built herself to fit over the bobbin winder of her sewing machine.

using her spun fabric yarn, she incorporates various spinning and weaving techniques to create her one of a kind accessories. 

below are some examples of her unique boot wraps that triple as belts and scarves

and even if you're not in the market for a baby sling, these can also be used as infinity scarves and could easily be stitched up the sides to make a fabulous purse/tote.

be sure to check out autumn's etsy store, reinfree.  and if you're looking for a special Christmas gift for someone (or yourself) there are several one of a kind boot wraps, pillows and scarves.  you're gonna love them!
