Member Spotlight: Cut Out & Collect

Cheyne of Cut Out & Collect sure knows how to put together fun graphic patterns and fabrics to create modern, kawaii-inspired wallets, bags, and clutches. How did she get into this crafty job? Says Cheyne's Etsy shop:

"Cut Out and Collect began as Cheyne Little's attempt to avoid graduate school, jobs involving fax machines, and other acceptable adult endeavors. When she's not behind a sewing machine, Cheyne can be found operating an espresso machine, playing with cameras, rollin' with her art peeps, conquering mountains of books, or planning her third trip around the world."

My favorite? The Scooter Pouch featuring zippy Vespas, stripes, and polka dots. Va-va-va-room!

Shop Cut Out & Collect online in her Etsy shop or in person at House of Dang!. And come see her at the upcoming Jingle Bash on November 22nd at the Sons of Hermann Hall!
