Meet the Maker: SinceSass

Meet the MakerCara CoreyComment

SinceSass owner Stephanie Bolton brings a cheeky sense of humor to her line of glittery zipper pouches and wine bags. She learned to sew when she was 11 years old and now makes each bag by hand using high quality and repurposed materials. "I believe every item I make should last a long time and make you smile every time you look at it," she says. 

Check out her products and learn more about Stephanie below.

Where do you draw inspiration? Or who inspires you?

Mod vintage blogs and design, Instagram (love seeing what other local artists are up to), and taking long walks in the city

If you could eat at any food truck, what would it be? And what would you get?

Anything Mexican is my go-to. My love for tacos and burritos inspired pouches of both!

What do you like most about the maker community?

Being part of the SF Etsy Leader Team, I get to see how creating events, classes, and other ways to provide opportunities to fellow local makers can change someone's business dramatically. It is a very inspiring and uplifting group of artists that want to see success from everyone. There is so much talent and smart business pioneers in our area!

Where is your favorite place to travel?

I don't think I have a favorite place, but I do like to travel. I love exploring, so finding a new place to visit (and get lost in) would be my favorite part.

What do you want for your next birthday?

Sleep and wine.

What does your work space look like? 

The center of my work space (pictured above) is a peg board, which is an art feature on all on it's own. When I'm at my tidiest, it's Pinterest worthy. I'm usually organized, which is important living in a small SF apartment. I need my supplies at my fingertips and try to not let all the sewing take over my small space.
