iheartfink - some of our newest designs

Devil Doll Dress - the dress in our Bust Magazine Ad








some of our newest designs available in our shop on Etsy.


we recently joined ArtFire...not so sure about it, but there were several nice options that made it interesting enough to try. Etsy is far more attractive than ArtFire - but we do want more traffic and customers, so we are open to new things! Trunkt has been great - a beautiful site that is also very organized and has proved to be helpful in getting people over to our shop on Etsy.
we have a small ad in the newest issue of Bust magazine. it's tiny, but we used a bold design that does stand out on the page! if you check out the new Bust, look near the back for a group of small ads.

New Ways for iheartfink


we have learned so much from our Etsy experience and we are ready to make some changes to make our items available to more people. we have been making one of a kind items from the get go...this won't change. but now, we offer many of the items we make from scratch in large, medium and small sizes at the price listed. because we print each item by hand and make them from scratch without patterns, they will each be unique and special! we will use a standard size chart for sizing and we use cotton knit fabric, so it's flexible and has a nice amount of give for complete comfort.
we also offer custom orders for 25% more. for custom orders we will make the item to the customers exact measurements and custom print the fabric in the desired colors. we love doing it this way so we know we are making something especially for that person.
you know...we just love doing what we do. all of it!

Accessories by iheartfink




wallets by iheartfink

we print recycled cotton fabric with our original art, sew the body with recycled plastic for the outside by machine and finish them with lots of hand sewing and a snap closure. Each wallet is one of a kind! Karen (my iheartfink partner and bff) has been carrying one of our wallets around new york and people ask her about it a lot...so we thought we would list a few in our shop on Etsy.

what we get up to....



We found a few new wonderful sites to promote our designs...we now have a portfolio on Trunkt and have had an image of our hood wrap (London Calling) accepted and displayed on craftgawker. Printing and sewing is what we do most of the time, but it's well worth the effort to spend a bit of time promoting! We are both working on new art for new screen print designs and have a few fun ideas for fall designs.

Last week was a very exciting week for iheartfink...we were the feature artists on Etsy Wednesday through Friday (midday). I gotta tell ya, when I saw that convo about the interview and being featured artist...I just said to my boyfriend "high five...c'mon...high five!" he said "what? why...oh, ok" then I told him and made him give me like 5 more. and then I called Karen - if we were in the same town there would have been some high fives with her, too! It was really cool and a lot of fun.
I made a little slide show of our work (above) to celebrate. fun fun FUN.
we heart Etsy xoxo

new designs - iheartfink





more from our studios...we stay very busy!
we only use our original art for the screen printing...and we do all of the screen printing ourselves. we have added some new designs for our prints and always print them in a very artistic way - small batches at a time or for recycled we just print the item then redesign it with lots of sewing. it's impossible to ever have two things be the same with our technique and we love that about what we do!

iheartfink...


our newest creations
Our shop is filled with original designs...raw and fresh from the studio and our imaginations. We get lots of questions about sizing so I thought I would write a little about that today.
We list items that come straight out of our studios and price them reasonably so we can offer custom designs based on the original design. We never duplicate our designs, but we do offer custom versions made to fit each customer. We ask for measurements and it takes from 3 days to a couple of weeks, depending on the fabric design. We print small batches of fabric with our original designs by hand...so if we need to order the fabric then print, it can take a bit longer. If we happen to have large quantities of a particuar fabric, we tend to print like mad and sometimes have enough of that original print to use it for a custom. The great thing about our process is that it keeps things fresh and inspired for us, so each item we create is "alive" and inspired. The great thing about our process for our customers is that every item purchased is a true one of a kind and totally unique.

our newest dress...a mini made from two recycled t shirts. we screen printed the green tee with our logo using metallic gold ink...and covered the red tee with our stripe design in a variety of colors...then we put the two together and went to town reforming and reshaping to fit in a flattering way.
