SOFT-bannerEmily from Heartsexplode has started a new Etsy shop called SOFT (Sewing Only For Tattoos). She’s making adorable bags for a good cause: to get herself some much-needed ink. All of the money she makes is going into a special tattoo fund, not to be touched until the day she can afford to get the tattoos she so desperately wants. Go check her stuff out and buy a bag or two – they’re hand-stitched and made with only the prettiest fabric around.


HE-large-iconI have to give some love to my lovely lady Emily from Heartsexplode. She’s been working on a bunch of new purses, bags and pouches made from reclaimed fabric and zippers, and I have to say, they are absolutely adorable. I’ve seen them in all stages of production, and she has poured her heart into these bags. Each one is carefully hand-stitched – no sewing machine needed for this girl. She’s adding more bags this week, so be on the lookout for even more cuteness! You should go check out her shop and buy something before they get snapped up.

P.S. Like the logo? I designed this sucker. If you want one for your shop, let me know at
