Hi. I am Evy.
I have been sewing for about 15 years, and crafting for even longer than that! Creating is something that has always kept my life in balance, and I love to do it. Every handmade piece you will find in my shop was made with love, care and precision!
Third-Hand Designs came about from this love to create in conjuction with my love for the environment and unique fashion styles; you know, the ones that stand out, but still don’t scream crazy. I have always had a hard time wasting anything… whether it’s scrap material, 1/4 of a tomato that didn’t get eaten, awesome bags & packaging that I receive items in, etc. etc.
I often peruse the rows of Goodwill and other thrift stores with a smile on my face like a kid in a candy store. My imagination runs wild with the potentially amazing articles of clothing. All they need is a bit of love and a creative hand!
Here, on this blog, I’m going to introduce some of my reconstructed favorites from the world of fashion as well as bring awareness to purchasing eco-friendly handmade treasures.
