Hooded Goddess Poncho
This simple poncho is made from a natural toned sweater knit, 2 organic cotton linen dyed forget-me-not blue & hempseed, lavender corduroy, and a deep olive green cotton corduroy. The hood is fully lined with fleece, too. It is constructed of the blue organic cotton and a strip of chevron patchwork I stitched up. On the back of the poncho, I designed a simple leaf mandala that matches the chevron patchwork. There is a roo pocket at the front with an Ohm/Aum applique and the chevron patchwork. For the hood drawstring, I used a natural cotton drawstring, which I finished off with beautiful purple and brown cowries (I purchased these already carved), and sage batik floral wooden buttons.
The poncho will fit many sizes...XS-XL sizes. The wingspan of the poncho is 65 inches, and the length is approximately 43 inches.
Steal Your Face Hoodie
Hey all! This hoodie would make a great Christmas present for papa bear! To make this hoody, I used two different waled wine/brown corduroys, along with a rusty brown SUPER soft wide wailed corduroy. For the original seminole design, I used a peagreen calico, black quilter's cotton, and a burnt orange flannel. The hoody is completely lined with a soft cream fleece! The sleeves, hoodie, and front pocket are constructed of the wide waled corduroy, and the body of the hoodie is made from the meduim/large waled corduroy. The hoodie layers criss-crossed at the front chest yoke, so there is plenty of room to ease on in and no need for a drawstring. I appliqued the Steal Your Face Tree of Life on the back of the hoodie by using the same fabrics used in the tiny detailed patchwork. This hoody is pretty large. I'd say it would best fit someone L-XXL best. The sleeves measure 23 inches from shoulder top to cuffs The length of the hoodie from shoulder to bottom is 33 inches. The chest measures 22 inches across, and the opening measures 45 inches round.
Reversible Mandala Coat
This coat is perfect for most any occassion. On one side I used a tan cotton medium waled corduroy and a mock short fur, and I usd a dusty baby blue suede cloth for the accents trim. I used these same fabrics to make an original mandala applique with the Star of David/Solomon's Seal on the back. There are two front pockets to keep your possessions safe. On the reversed side, I used this gorgeous tapestry fabric that is geyish tan and textured with dusty baby blue leaves! This side of the coatis vey nice for those dressy occassions. I also added more accent strips, from the same baby blue suede cloth, around cuffs and bottom on this side as well. There are 2 front pockets on this side of the coat, too! This hoody buttons up at the neck, where I appliqued button accent patches. I used brass buttons and crocheted hemp loops for the button closure. The hoody is cut a-frame, and has a drawstring at the neck. I made crocheted drawstring with hemp and finished off the bottoms with shells and glass seed beads. The sleeves measure 21 inches from shoulder top to cuffs The length of the hoodie from shoulder to bottom is 34 inches. The chest measures 22 inches across, and the opening measures 45 inches round.
Quilted Lotus/Fish Hoody
OoOoOoOoO mamas! Check out this cozy hoddy. There is so much fine detailing in this one! To make the hoody, I used organic cotton for the upper portion and a beautiful jewel toned batik fabric for the bottom and hood. I completely quilted the ENTIRE fleece lining to the hoody myself, using the herringbone technique at the top, to create a wavy water effect. I then quilted the bottom portion vertically. The front roo pocket has some V-quilting as well! The quilitng helps keep the hoody from being bulky with lining! The fish applique is made from various batiks and a beautiful violet suede cloth, which I repeated in the trim. The sleeves have elastic and the hoody drawstrings at the bottom with a pignose toggle. The front of the hoody is V-necked, with a front yoke panel, where I appliqued a pretty lil' lotus flower.
The hoody will fit s-m-l sizes. The wingspan of the hoody is 58 inches, and it measures 25 inches across the chest. The length from shoulders to hem is 25 inches.
Quilted Rasta Soldier Hoody
Here's another cozy quilted hoody that is simple, yet plum full of subtle detail. To make this one, I used an army green organic cotton twill for the base of this hoody. I completely quilted the ENTIRE fleece lining to the hoody myself, using a simple straight line. For the roo pocket and entire back of the hoody, I quilted the Star of David/Solomon's seal, using black, red, gold, and green thread accents. The quilitng helps keep the hoody from being bulky with lining! I used a thicker fleece for the arms and hood, and a thinner micro-fleece for the body, to help you breathe. I added a simple stripe of chevron patchwork down the arms, with another star on each side, using organic cotton, hemp, and duck cloth for the patchwork. The sleeves have elastic and the hoody drawstrings at the bottom with a pignose toggle.
The hoody will fit L-XL sizes. The wingspan of the hoody is 67 inches, and it measures 28 inches across the chest. The length from shoulders to hem is 29 inches.

Ohm/Aum Lotus Hoody
Hey there! What I've got for you mamas here is a pretty quilted Ohm hoody blouse. The blouse is lined (except for the front panel) with a lightweight one-sided fleece, I completely quilted myself! I started making this jacket before Christmas last year, along with the matching pants, but they just weren't ready to be finished till now. Sometimes a project will do that to me...hehehe! This beautiful batik fabric inspired my pallette. I used corduroys, suede cloth, velvet, organic cotton, and a calico for the patchwork. The sleeve cuffs, hood, and sides are all made from random patchwork. On the back of the hoody, I appliqued an lotus flower with the Ohm/Aum symbol in the center. The blouse will best fit someone 34-38 at the bust. The sleeves measure 25 inches from shoulder to cuff, the jacket measures 42 inches around the chest, and the length of the blouse, from shoulder top to hem is 26 inches.

"School Girl Crush" Hooded Shrug
Hey there, pretty mamas! What I've got for you here is an adorable little hoodie shrug that will help keep you nice and cozy as the season changes. To make the hoodie, I used a rust and grey sweater knit, a recycled deep grape terry, and a deep purple one-sided fleece for the snuggly hood.
Along the flounced sleeve cuffs, pixie hood, and wrap around ruffle flounce, I appliqued a twisted rainbow yarn, using a decorative vine stitch. The yarn stitching matches the detailing on the back pockets of the skirt (skirt sold separately). At the end of the hood, I braided the yarn and made a little puff ball. The braided is adorned with wooden beads, too, just to add a bit of flavor. The front of the shrug buttons at the neck with the same wooden buttons you will find on the matching skirt.
The hooded shrug will best fit someone 34-38 at the bust. The sleeves measure 25 inches from shoulder to cuff,

Fabrics of soft cotton deep teal corduroy, vintage moss green velvet upholstery, deep olive shiney lame, and smokey grey velvet work their magic in this jacket...
The beginning of this project went a little haywire! I initially designed and stitched up this huge butterfly applique as a split hood piece, but the way the hood lay when resting just didn't work out right. After a few ridiculously dramatic sobs and sighs, I decided to begin again with a whole new design that would somehow incorporate the butterfly piece I had already made. (I just may give my initial design another whirl this month if I can handle it...heehee...we'll see!)
Making this jacket, I learned a lot about how difficult it can be to create a fitted jacket that will fit nicely on multiple sizes. I found that a single closure at the front worked best. Therefore, you will find a lovely brass finished scroll closure at the front of this jacket below the bossom, a gathered bustline to fit, and subtle v-cut. *WINK*
At the base of the back of the jacket, I created a place to feature my freeform scrolled butterfly...yayyy...all those tears for nothin'! Resting above the butterfly jacket tail, I added a small belt detail with matching brass buttons. The pixie hood rests neatly above the other details and is finished off with a handmade pompom tassel and wooden bead. Breathing a little romance in the jacket, I then detailed the entire jacket with a lovely deep olive shiney fabric, gathered to create a ruffle trim.
There are two little side-front pockets perfect for idle little hands, sweets, sparkly things, high hopes, and treasures of the heart! The pockets close with vintage brass buttons.
Comfy and snuggly, this little shrug is sure to keep you warm during the colder seasons. It fits well over a snug tee and will layer perfectly over those little apron dresses and tops that you have tucked away till Spring!
To make the shrug, I used a recycled mauve polar fleece and a deep burgandy wine cotton pique fabric for the hood and flounces. Pique is a wonderful breathable fabric with a slight stretch...most Polo shirts are made from cotton pique.
Along the flounced sleeve cuffs, pixie hood, and wrap around ruffle flounce, I appliqued a twisted rainbow yarn, using a decorative vine stitch. At the end of the hood, I braided the yarn and made a little puff ball. The braid is adorned with a batik wooden bead just to add a bit of flavor. The front of the shrug ties at the neck with thick handbraided ties. The hooded shrug will best fit someone 31-35 at the bust, and the sleeves measure 25 inches from shoulder to cuff.
Hooded Organic Cotton Rasta Wrap W/Shirred Sleeves
Rasta hooded wrap with racer back stripes and shirred sleeves...oh so snuggly and styley!
A nice and thick licorice black organic cotton jersey, for the main portion of this hoodie, with deep forest green hemp jersey, goldentrod cotton ribbed knit, and red organic cotton jersey. The front wrap ties at the side with handbraided cords finished off with cowry shells. A simple front roo pocket at the front will help keep your hands nice and toasty, and the shirred fabric of the sleeves help insulate the arms.
This hoodie will best fit M-XL, fitting a bust of 35-39 inches, 40 inches or under at the waist, and a free swing for the hip area.
Grateful Dead Patchwork Hoodie Coat
What I've made for you here is a long, cozy, and warm winter coat plum full of detail. I used a gorgeous maroon EcoSpun fabric (WOOL & RECYCLED P.E.T. BOTTLE fiber) for the base of the coat. I sketched and stitched up a lightning bolt patchwork border,along the sleeves and bottom for some flavor. On the back, there is a "Steal Your Face," handdrawn and appliqued by my own loving hands.
I trimmed the coat up with a fuzzy and snuggly smokey blue fleece fur around the bottom and sleeve cuffs. The elfin hood is also constructed of the same fabric.
The coat is fully lined and closes with 6 beautifully carved coconut buttons and a trench belt. There are two lined side pockets to keep your hands nice and warm and to keep important belongings close by!
