Mini Monday: Bratsacks Baby


This morning's Mini Monday is a long-time team member, Bratsacks Baby! Here's a bit more about this creative mama...

Hi, I'm Jessi and I live in the beautiful Northwest Georgia Mountains. I've been sewing since I was big enough to sit at my grandma's sewing machine, but I earned most of my experience sewing clothing so that I could go on Grateful Dead, then Phish tour back in the early 90's. Besides being a WAHM dog groomer, I sew in my "spare" time. I accidentally stumbled across the back-pack craze when I was stuck at home and needed a gift for a friend's 2 year old's birthday. He loved it, and then another mom asked for one, then another, then another. Before I knew it I was on my 50th backpack! I really do enjoy finding vintage and faded clothing to use in my work. I find colors that you wouldn't otherwise see!

Oh, I LOVE bratsacks!! I have purchased, let's see...4 or 5 now. They are great for any gift-giving moment! We have bought them for birthdays, Christmas and get-well gifts. They are wonderful. Kids just LOVE them also! Thanks for featuring Jessi
