Weekly BEST: Chasing the Nuns

This week, I'm featuring a crafter named Sarah who runs the shop Chasing the Nuns.  She is a stay at home mom that hails from the great state of Illinois.  A unique sense of humor and personal style are reflected in her work, which includes crotchet, knitting, and sewing.  Sarah also upcycles t-shirts and turns them into fabulous shoulder bags.  Here are my favorites from the shop:

 Mr. Rogers

aviator hat

crochet necklace

In addition to the shop offerings shown, Chasing the Nuns offers custom color and yarn options.  If she makes it, she can probably make it for you in your favorite color or yarn.  Even more exciting - if you're like me and have t-shirts you love but no longer wear, Sarah can preserve them for you by turning them into bags like the ones you see above.  Just ask her about custom ordering!

Check out the shop in these places around the web:

Visit the shop and check out Sarah's work.  Then come back here and let us know which item you like the most.  Also in the comments, let us know which of your t-shirts you'd most like to see turned into a bag!  For me, it would be the embroidered Montreal shirt that was brought back for me as a souvenir years ago.

Until next time,

I'm a part of an Etsy team called Boosting Etsy Shops Team or BEST. The purpose of the group is to provide promotion for each team member through our existing social networking accounts. Each week I'll be doing a blog feature about a different team member.
