When I opened my PrairiePeasant shop on Etsy, I had a hard time deciding what to focus on. I love creating in many forms, and love learning new things. I started off with both paper and fabric items in my shop, but I soon realized I needed to have more direction in the shop. So for this first year and a half, I've focused on paper goods: journals, cards, envelopes, and tags, trying to use repurposed materials as much as possible.

While I'm still planning on keeping PrairiePeasant going strong, it's time for the fabrics and fibres to come out of the boxes too. I've just opened my second shop on Etsy, PrairieThreads, which will focus on ecofriendly items made from thrifted and repurposed fabrics and yarn.

I'm starting off with some cute mini stockings for Christmas:

Gradually, I'll build up my inventory to include more totes and pouches, maybe some aprons. All I know is that the fabric wants to be let out of the box!


  1. great news! the little stockings are so cute and i'm so happy to have another fiber buddy!

  2. congratulations on your new shop, laura!! you go girl!! and those wee stockings are the absolute cutest things.....i think they'll be gone in the blink of an eye!!
