Shop Feature: Bashful Bear Designs

This week's shop feature is Bashful Bear Designs. This shop  specializes in making Petite clothing  such as  skirts,  shorts and  dresses. She also has a few cute  tote bags which I love  too. I think my favorite item from her shop is the  Green Reversible tote bag. Please  check out more about her and the work she does. you just might find something you like.

1. How did you come up with the Name of your Shop?
The last few years people have started calling me Emma Bear. It’s such a coincidence, because Emma’s Pet by David McPhail was the first book I ever read. It was about a bear named Emma. I thought Bashful + Bear would be a cute and memorable name!

2. Tell us a little bit about your shop and what you think makes it unique?
I started my shop in February 2013. As someone with a petite build, I’ve always found properly fitting clothes hard to come by, especially one’s that are cute! I wanted to focus on clothes that had simple lines with a certain classic femininity about them. I think what makes my shop unique is that I use thrifted materials to make my garments and that the shop focus is on custom made items.
