Keeping solids away from stripes, cotton away from lace, and the mice away from the mushrooms is anxiety inducing.
So mix it up with Twirls and Twigs.
Designer Shawna Dalton makes her original line of clothes and baby blankets from anything she can get her hands on. Scraps scoured from other companies’ cutting room floors are paired with organic cotton, soybean, and bamboo fabrics. Maybe some found buttons or recycled cotton for good measure? You never know.
After all, this is her remix.
