Indie Crafter Du Jour: Allison Cole of Bang Bang You're Thread

So many crafts, so little time. We're doing the work for you and finding the people who make the cutest handmade items on the Interwebs. First up is Allison Cole from Providence, Rhode Island who crafts under the name Bang Bang You're Thread. The RISD graduate makes a plethora of aesthetically pleasing things to beautify your life. Some of our favorites are her sets of stationary with original artwork. This multi-pack of five 5x7 cards (pictured) goes for only $7, while this three-pack of bird postcards goes for $3. (Get all 1992 on your friends, and impress them by writing a letter with no abbreviations.)

Want something to hang on your wall? Her "You & Me Are Meant to Be" print is adorable and comes matted and ready for framing. And to add onto Melissa's post about those great map tote bags, Allison illustrated this "Take Us Home" ($16) canvas bag with a whimsical group of talking vegetables.

There are also sweet notebooks, sketchbooks, and buttons perfect for adorning a hoodie or bag. So much cuteness at an affordable price! Holla at Allison via her Etsy shop.
