Prissy Gypsy - Vintage, Romantic, Eclectic, Floral, Shabby, Embellished ... All Things Pretty!
It all started with a love for sewing.
I was practically born with a needle and thread in my hand!
My lovely Mama, Tommie Jean, taught me basic embroidery stitches at age four. By age eight, I was making my own clothes. I have sewn everything from aprons to draperies to wedding gowns over the years! My dear Mama passed away when I was 14, but when I am sewing and creating, she is always with me. I can still feel her poking me in the shoulders and telling me to sit up straight as she inspects my seams!
I still have some of the fabrics my mother stored beautifully in her antique cedar chest. These fabrics have always inspired me. I love working with vintage and current floral decorator fabrics and I'm always on the lookout for beautiful vintage fabrics to add to my collection and for my one-of-a-kind and limited edition bags, altered clothing and accessories of all kinds.
Almost every item I make incorporates a bit of my vintage or unique fabrics. I love working with linens, decorator florals, damasks, jacquards, and other textural materials like cork, leather, hemp, and vegan vinyls. Each and every one of my designs is individually handcrafted by me in my smoke-free in-home studio. Each item is embellished with a variety of trims, embroidery, beads, buttons, tassels, flowers, jewelry or other findings to create a uniquely feminine look and feel with practical usability.
We love custom orders too! You'll love the quality and workmanship put into each product and each is made with lots of Love, Laughter, Faith and Excitement!
