4 October 13 • SCB

Hello! Just a quick note to say that we have been working with Shopify all week to resolve the problems at by3191. We want your shopping experience to go smoothly and are planning on adding the SCB and Found Collections on Monday, October 7th. Subscribers to our mailing list will be the first to know when items are available! Thank you so much for your patience—we are excited to share these new items with you. —MAV & SCB

My current collection of animals was inspired by MAV and her Beauty & Use Collection 6. I was so taken with the beautiful naturally-dyed and hand-block-printed fabrics she used that I begged for the remnants and scraps left after creating the tops. (I am loving wearing my Sleeveless No. 3 layered over and under things for the fall…this one is sold out, but Sleeveless No. 4 is still available in the smaller size).

MAV sent me a beautiful bundle of scraps—the block prints along with the cotton and hemp stripe from her smocks—all begging to be transformed into little guys.

Along with bunnies, I tried my hand at making some bears. I think they are pretty loveable.

As always, these animals are stuffed with 100% wool (along with jingle bells for subtle sound) and feature leather bottoms and hand-sewn details.

Different this go-around, I was able to make them in editions of near-identical multiples, that way you have a better chance of getting the bunny or bear on which you have your eye! Check them out at by3191 on Monday, and thanks so much for your continued appreciation for these little guys—a great deal of time and effort goes into each and every one. I do love making them!
