*highlight of the week - I got a Bernina sewing machine and well, it's amazing! now Karen and I both use Bernina machines for iheartfink designs. I have been using singer for many years and they are sturdy and fine - but this one...this Bernina!...she is purrrfect!

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!
