{studio update} recycled sweaters…

This week was super rainy here in the NW. I’m generally not one to let the weather bring me down – I grew up a northwest girl after all. But man – it’s been down right dreary! So, I felt the need to make cozy, wool snuggly things in between filling orders. This of course comes from the major spring cleaning kick I’ve been on too.  
Over the years I’ve sort of become a bit of a pack rat (to say the least). It’s really hard to part with clothes in particular. Even if they don’t fit, if I really like the texture, pattern, or color – I just can’t seem to part. Well, I found a solution for that a while back & I started making sweater slug plush out of my old sweaters. I now have a new stack of sweaters to work with from my latest purge. These are some of my longtime favorites. It was hard to make the first cut, but I quickly got over it when my critters came to life. I even made a sleepy owl (that was seriously a self portrait that day). 

I have to say, I enjoy making these cuddly plushies with sweaters that already have a story.  The plush section of the KLTworks Etsy shop is sure filling up! Not only did I have fun making these, but I had fun taking instagrams of them as well. 

Hope everyone has a great weekend! What are your plans? Maybe there is some sun in my  future & I’ll have to start working with cotton seersucker….

{shop update} a mobile menu…

Everyone has their own story to tell so I was really excited to create a “mobile menu” – a list of mobile characters, colors, & fabrics to create an individual & unique klt:works mobiles for every creative vision. You can find the custom mobile listing here

Speaking of mobiles, there is a giveaway over at bloesem kids – you can win a klt:works Friends of the Forest  mobile!  

If you would like a chance to win this mobile, you can stop by bloesem kids for a visit. They will chose a winner & post it on Wednesday. Good luck!  

Hope you had a great weekend!

{Shop Update} The Snowy Owl…

Winter at klt:works means snowy owls & hoodies. So I was really excited about getting this salt & peppy snowy owl hoodie printed in time for the cozy weather. For this screen printing job (along with more owl cardigans), I worked with a local screen printing studio called Innate. Their creative energy was a perfect fit.

Of course, a new hoodie added to the klt:mix meant that Sayer needed to test it out – with me camera ready. So we headed out for the afternoon to explore the cool nooks & crannies of our downtown. 

Now the klt:shop is all stocked up for the winter with cozy shades of grey & oodles of owls.

It’s always fun to work with different creatives – so if you are local & looking for some custom work, give the guys at Innate a visit. They also have a store front where they sell their own designs. They are always working on interesting & fun projects so they are bound to inspire you.
