I've been drafting patterns and designing women's clothing for years, but in 2009 when I couldn't find cute fabric shoes for my baby, I decided to make them. That is how Flippy Baby was born! Each pair is lovingly hand made with a lot of attention to detail. I use fine and delicate fabrics and decorations, 100% cotton linings, and soft felt or fleece for insoles.
Art by Bonnie Blue
DARE TO WEAR ART!! I take vintage jackets and boots and purses and give them a new life with my one of a kind hand painted designs. I love to paint faces and a lot of what I use in my designs but I paint other things too, like flowers, butterflies, etc.
I paint on canvas using acrylic paint. I make dolls with cloth and clay, small dioramas using old crate boxes. I also make wooden Kokeshi dolls using door knobs and wooden eggs. In the ensemble of my dolls and artwork I incorporate parts of old necklaces and interesting things I find at garage sales.
