Jill is awesome. Her work is original, natural, comfortable, and totally modern. I am SO excited to have Jill back for All-Star week, as she is officially the biggest feature of last year.
So, back by WAY popular demand, I am super excited to present Scabby Robot!
Business: Scabby Robot -Leather Bags and Accessories
What do I love about my work?
I love leather. I love the feel of it, the smell of it, the sheen of it. It's tricky to work with. Like an ink drawing on paper, stitch lines on leather are permanent - I even like that aspect of it!
Best gift I've ever been given, that's a tough one.
Maybe the manicure kit I was given as a 10 year old kid... I still use it regularly. Or surprise gifts... I LOve surprises. A friend showed up to hang out one night - and brought me my favorite as a surprise treat- a coconut filled with jello. That was PRETTY great.
To make my work stand out this season, I'm focusing on one of a kind items. Over the years I've collected lots and lots of leathers - some I have just small bits of, and others larger pieces. These remnants are not enough to create a whole line, but are so special as one-off pieces. I think they'll be great as holiday gifts! Here's a special piece with neato tannery marking: http://www.etsy.com/listing/59019522/clay-small-raw-leather-clutch
What do I want people to know about my work? I want folks to know that I design every piece myself and that I make every piece myself. All my sewing is done on vintage Singer machines - and I love my machines.
My favorite thing about the holidays? Eggnog- Love the stuff.
