Kristin is a creative type who is also fascinated with “the child’s mind and unedited creativity,” so it seemed natural for her to make things for her most adoring audience, the zero to six-year-old set. With a background in fine art, Kristin approaches the overly saccharine world of kids’ things with a refreshing painter’s eye. She actually “draws” with her sewing machine, using thread to free form her whimsical plush animals. Yep, that will make you want to be a kid again.
