Featured Shop Wednesday: Paper Selvage

Welcome back to a new week of Featured Shop Wednesday! This week please welcome Lorelai from Paper Selvage! 

Tell me a bit about yourself 
My name is Lorelai and I am a Boston native residing in Los Angeles. I spend most of my time sewing, blogging and traveling. When I'm not working, you can find me volunteering at animal rescue groups. I help walk dogs, bottle feeding kittens and squirrels, as well as rehabbing elephant seals and other marine rescues. Not all at the same place of course! 

Tell me about your shop and what you make.
Paper Selvage features hand pressed paper made entirely of recycled fibers. All of my paper is made with a mixture of recycled paper, fabric and pattern tissue left over from my sewing projects. Each sheet is one of kind and showcases beautiful abstractions of fabric fibers. Great for paper crafts, personalized notes, gift tags, wedding guest books, scrapbooking, etc.


What inspires you to make what you make? 
Paper is becoming somewhat of a lost art. I love sending cards and letters with a personal touch. When I noticed how much wasted tissue, fabric and thread gets thrown out during a sewing project, it occurred to me to put the two together.
Fun Questions:

Favorite Color: Green
Favorite TV Show: Game of Thrones
Favorite Season: Autumn

What did you want to be when you grew up? Marine Biologist

If you could stock your fridge with one food, what would it be? Pie
