Hi All! Today I'm featuring a new favorite. One of my critique partners is an incredible seamstress and, lucky for us, has set up at Etsy Shop.
-Do you have a kid who takes his/her lunch to school?
-Do you like pretty scarves and flowy skirts?
-Are you a sucker for hand-sewn items?
-Are you environmentally-conscious, or do you have a enviro-friendly friend who’s birthday is coming up?
-Do you like to support fellow writers?

For your younger kids (or for grown-ups like me who find themselves packing lunches for hiking picnics, baseball games, etc.), Joy makes these sandwich wraps to order:
For the kiddies, she also has handy pencil holders that are great for home or travel use—seriously, if you have a young kid or a niece or a nephew to buy for, nothing is more perfect than a box of colored pencils, a really big pad of paper, and one of these holders to keep the pencils mobile and nice & neat (trust me, the moms will appreciate it).
For a classy, dare-I-say, writerly look, she makes these gorgeous “stained-glass” scarves to order:
And these whimsical skirts and dresses are SO ADORABLE. Here are a few. Go check out more items at her shop!
