Hey there, Craft Closet. Long time no see.
I know I promised to spend more time with you this year, but things aren’t quite working out as planned.
But you’ll be proud to know that I’m still dressing my family in handmade togs; they’re just made by someone else’s hands.
Plum Tree Studio’s adorably appliqued tees, onesies, totes, and bibs feature funky fabric designs for both boys and girls. And the robot shirts are perfect for my little guy who likes to rock a retro DIY look.
Without having to do it myself.
Available at Beehive Co-Op, 1831a Peachtree Road, Buckhead (404-351-1166); online at plumtreestudio.etsy.com.
