Ashley of One In The Hand {Feature Friday}

Pin It
Happy Friday and welcome to Feature Friday.  Feature Friday is my way of sharing handmade, sewing, and quilting shops & blogs with all of you, my lovely readers.  I love learning about other indie blogs and shops, so I hope you do, too!

Today I'm sharing Ashley of One In The Hand on Etsy.  Ashley is one of my "Tweeps" aka Twitter Friends, and, like me, she loves to craft and sew.  Read on to learn more about her Handmade Business and check out her shop... this cooler weather is going to have you craving one of her pretty knit and sewn coffee wraps and headbands!

Ashley is currently having a Sale in her shop and offering a Free Shipping coupon for SoChick! readers... Thanks bunches, Ashley!! 

Hey, y’all! My name is Ashley and I’m happy to be featured here on Melissa’s blog. I’m always excited to read her blog to see the cute fabrics she’s working with, or her latest display at a handmade market. Also I kind of went bananas when she offered her Everything You Want To Know About Fabric AKA Ashley Why Are You Monopolizing The Comments Section Of All My Posts series . . . I’m a married mom of three kids and work full-time in higher education in Chicago, but besides all that, I have an Etsy shop called One In The Hand! I sew and knit practical accessories basically because they give me the opportunity to feed my fabric/yarn addiction. That’s a good reason to start a small business, right? ;)

Right now I make a lot of cup cozies which are great on your drinks in any season, and headbands for those days you want to dress up your hair (and the days you want to hide it). I’m excited to be adding some new home accessories to my shop this fall and winter, so keep an eye out for them! I do my best to re-use great materials for my items in order to cut down on waste and to provide cute stuff at affordable prices. It’s also very important to me to support my community so 10% of all my sales go to charity. This year I’m donating to Chicago’s Emergency Fund, which is an organization that provides immediate financial and resource assistance to folks going through a crisis or life transition.

You can follow along with my Facebook shop page where you can share your opinion on weighty matters like, “Should hot pads have loops or do you store them in a drawer?” BUT ALSO for awesome giveaways and stuff.

I’m making room in my shop for new items so everything is currently marked down 30%! As a So Chick! reader you’re also entitled to free shipping by using coupon code SOCHICK when you purchase something in my shop.

Ashley's One In The Hand button will be on my right side-bar under "Featured Sites" for the month so you can easily find her shop!

Have a fabulous weekend!
