With a talent for crocheting and sewing, Robin of Robin's Flight opened her shop on Etsy to offer her lovely and unique bags, wallets, organizers, and card or gadget holders. What began as a hobby eventually evolved into Robin's Etsy shop. Like the robin in the children's book, Ickle Bickle Robin," Robin decided to "fly" on her own and explore the world of creating and offering her handmade items in her own shop.
Robin loves to crochet and sew and also finds the process of creating patterns and designing enjoyable. " I like the pattern creation most-- putting it all together and watching it turn from yarn and fabric into something functional and pretty." Of the many items that Robin has created, among her favorites are an espresso and cream belted bag and the red and brown buckle handle bag that also serves as her avatar. They have a classic appearance and are unique at the same time.
As a shop owner, Robin's love of crafting, organizing, and being flexible are qualities that help to strengthen her success. "My ability to go with the flow lets me be flexible and not get too bent out of shape when things don't go the way I expect, in my shop and in life in general." With that kind of optimistic attitude, Robin's Flight should soar! You can see more of Robin's crocheted and sewn merchandise at Robin's Flight on Etsy.
