Gigglestuff — 2015

Fun. Thoughtfully handmade. Not mass produced.

My story
It all started when my daughter received her first bike: a balance bike. I looked for a basket, but there was nothing available for her tiny bike (and I hate plastic). So I turned to my sewing machine. My friend saw my little bike bag and custom ordered 5 to give as gifts to all her balance bike buddies. I posted some pics on Etsy and the rest is history.My process
I pre-wash all my fabrics in hot water, and machine dry on the hot setting to clean and shrink everything. I cut everything at night (I’m a bit of a work-a-holic) and sew during the day. As soon as a bike bag is done, I photograph it and make it available almost immediately in my Etsy Store.My inspiration
I love clean, modern, bright and funky… Call me eclectic.I also love being outdoors. We live near a river where the salmon spawn each year, and eagles and bears are free to live. My family and I cherish that. I love to make fun things that will get your kids outside so they can enjoy where they live.

My hopes and dreams
To find others who are trying to make a difference in the consumer world. I worry about what condition we will leave this earth if everyone continues to buy mass produced things that will be added to landfill. Please make educated choices when you are going to buy something. Try to reuse and repurpose things, hand things down so others can enjoy it.

My warranty
My toys and bags are made to last, so you can feel good that you are not adding to landfill with something mass produced that will fall apart. I also offer repair on my handmade goods, please send me a message and photo and I’ll try my best to repair it if something happens to it.

I am thankful there are other handmade enthusiasts out there who don’t want mass produced things. Thank you for supporting us creative types and for buying handmade!
