Making It!: Week 1 - Kristina

Week 1: Meet the Designers - Kristina

Hello! I am Kristina of Wash when Dirty. I’ve always been in love with fabrics, yarns, up-cycling projects, and vintage hunts. I learned how to knit, sew and crochet when I was just a wee-bit, while watching my mom make our clothes and things around our house. If you meet me for coffee, you’ll probably soon notice that while I’m talking to you, my hand is busy doodling bags, sketching up patterns or playing around with quilt compositions.

My design philosophy is to create something simple, modern, cute and functional! I believe in being earth friendly so I only use 100% cotton fabrics and threads along with some up-cycled materials. I love giving things a new life from burlap rice bags to beautiful and delicate wedding dresses.

Marichelle, THANK YOU! As for the rest of you, I’m excited to get to know you and glad to have you along my little adventure as all this is enfolding!
