Busy, busy bee…

So, since KCW finished up, i haven’t posted a damn thing.  I’ve been working like crazy on my next endeavor…Frankie & Coco PDX!  My dear friend Sarah and I have launched a new little shop, specializing in beautiful, yet quirky items for women (mainly).  We are inspired by color, texture, vintage details and organic elements. The merging of our two distinct styles adds something unexpected to our designs and everything is crafted by hand and one-of-a-kind; functional and beautiful, with a twist.  We really enjoy combining modern functionality with unique, vintage elements found on our frequent scavenger hunts…vintage zippers, buttons, fabric, etc.  It’s exciting to come across truly unique items and integrate them into our design vision.  So far the journey has been great, but the real Frankie & Coco keep it interesting.  Designing & sewing with a 3 and a 1 year old is challenging at best.

Here’s a sampling of the new wares.

i adore the infinity scarf.  so simple, so comfortable.  i’ve been making these scarves like crazy and wanted to share.  i made my first one in bamboo/cotton jersey, then decided to get creative.  i tried combining fabrics, which creates a lovely twist of color &/or texture.  i absolutely love how differently they each look & feel.
