Rachel lives in the Avondale "hood" and we are very proud to have her participate as one of the featured artists in the Art in the Afternoon event this Saturday, June 5, 3-7 pm! She makes one-of-a-kind felted pouches, both upcycled and new, using cute, vintage buttons to adorn her pieces. She's also expanded her line by collaborating with Lillibands, another locally owned business, to create adorable appliqués on fun and colorful headbands for girls and women. Look for them to be unveiled this fall, but for now here's a sneak peek, as well as sample of one her snazzy pouches. She will be exhibiting at the Blanchard residence, 70 Lakeshore Dr., Avondale Estates, GA 30002, so come on out and check out some of her newest creations!

I scour thrift stores for vintage buttons, wool and cashmere sweaters, I then felt the sweaters in my home. I LOVE to reuse and repurpose fabrics and buttons and, well, a lot of other items too. the items get turned into coffee cozies, cell phone pouches, checkbook covers, among other items. Tickleworm has only one of a kind items!
