Fashionable Lovelies: Handmade and Fair Trade

1. Ruffled Shirt, Tea Rose Home (tutorial)

2. Oriental Chic Vegan Mary Jane, TheGeneration, $65

3. Flutter Tail Pockets and Super Cute Bow Dress in Black, LadyTA, $39

4. Braided Handle Cotton Bag, Ten Thousand Villages, $28

5. Cotton Weave Tote to Go, Ten Thousand Villages, $38

There are also many, many websites to check out for tutorials on making clothing, bags, and accessories yourself- everything from very simple modifications you can easily make to store-bought clothing to more advanced patterns. A few sites that I’ve found that I like:

The Purl Bee
Prudent Baby
I Am Momma Hear Me Roar
Tea Rose Home
Ruffles and Stuff

And other good places to look for fairly-traded goods produced ethically, providing a living wage to artisans:
Ten Thousand Villages
One City Ministries- Africa TrAID Marketplace

Do you have other wonderful resources I don’t know about yet? Please share in the comments!
