You guys i am so excited to announce the release of our new tote bags!!
I think lovers of sewing can all relate to this right?! People find out you can sew and then the next minute they’re asking you to hem their jeans. Just me? Nope didn’t think so. You’re not alone babes – join the club!
So a while ago i posted a picture on Instagram of this little slogan which i had been planning to put on a tshirt for myself, and the response was so overwhelming that i realised everyone needs a little sewing snark in their life.
Of course i jumped at the chance to create something through Freeset again. I’m really excited to be adding another product made by Freeset women, and I’m hoping to keep adding more! If you’re not familiar with Freeset or my Maker tee, and the story behind it – Freeset manufacture fairtrade organic tees and tote bags in the heart of Kolkata’s red light district. All their tees and totes are handmade and screen printed by women who have escaped sex slavery. They work in a sheltered workshop under fair trade conditions, and are provided with health care, child care and an education. So basically they’re about the most amazing organisation ever.
But that’s enough from me! Head on over and get your own YES I SEW, NO I WON’T DO YOUR MENDING tote bag !
