Handmade AmErika is a playful blend of fun accessories, party hats, pet fashion, custom home décor, and eco-friendly one-of-a-kind items.  It’s the home of my obsession for all things handmade allowing me to create items that are unique and bring smiles to those around me.  Since discovering the sewing machine at a very young age, my expertise continues to advance, evolve, and cultivate into a brand I’m very proud of.

 

In 2010, I started my first handmade business in the pet industry under the name of Sew Doggy Style making accessories and party hats strictly for pets.  It quickly expanded into a DIY pet crafts blog, which became an outlet for my creativity to flourish.  My dog Sebastian and I found ourselves being featured in Cesar's Way, Every Dog, Modern Dog, American Profile and FaveCrafts.com  (to name a few) for our one-of-a-kind craft ideas.  We even had our one minute of fame on the Rachel Ray Show in 2014.

 

Now I’ve expanded my brand beyond the pet industry opening the stage for my imagination as an artist to carry onward - hence, the birth of Handmade AmEriKa.  I run the entire site, from the making of the products to the design of the web pages.  When you purchase from me, you are supporting a Made in the USA brand stemming from a person who has 10,000 deliberate hours behind her sewing machine.  I hope my products bring you as much satisfaction as I acquire from creating them.

 

Thank you for stopping by.  Be sure to check back often for new items and inspiration.  I would love to hear from you, whether it is a general inquiry or a question you might have about a customizable item.

 

 

XOXOXO,

Erika
