Keeping my Buns Warm: Tracie Seed Designs Review/Giveaway

I LOVE finding cute little etsy shops -as you will see thought this event.
Tracie Seed Designs is one that I think is so fun!
Tracie has been so fun to get to know also. . . like finding a new friend.  :)


Who is the mastermind behind your products?  Who is the inspiration?  
All items are designed and handmade by me. I've created all my life and have fond memories from my childhood of drawing, coloring and sewing with my Mom. I've been sewing since I was 7 years old when my great-grandmother "Big Granny" taught me to sew clothes for my dolls. I am passionate about striving to live a creative and mindful life. I work in many mediums including recycled products. My creations come from a long history of creative women: from my heart, to my hands, to my customers.

How long have you been selling your product?  
October 2009 I started selling to a local store called Kreatelier (www.kreatelier.com) and they encouraged me to open an Etsy store and eventually consider wholesale trade.  I am currently researching this year and creating a solid line of products by trial and error.

How has your product evolved from the fist time you made it?  Has it changed in design or anything? 
This specific product that Vilate has is actually my second design. I made the second (this one) bigger and added a heating element that can be microwaved before placing the bread products inside.  Vilate has given me some great tips to make it better.   ** The new heating element will have a removable sleeve that can be washed with the bun warmer if need be.

What do you love most about your product? 
 I grew up eating biscuits and gravy.  This product reminds me of that.  I love that it can be washed & easily stored (as compared to a basket.  It adds a sense of nostalgia and whimsy to the table.  It makes a great gift for the baker in your life, a hostess, a house warmer or anyone who loves to eat warm bread!

What makes your product stand out from the rest?  *brag about it, it is ok!  :)  Like I said, it is easily stored and comes with the heating element.  I make each one to order so any fabric combination can be used.  I love custom orders and thrive on finding the perfect fabric for my customer.

Fun huh?
So what are we reviewing today?  A Bun, Bread, Biscuit Warmer
Isn't that just so "springy"?
BTW those are bread bowls.  4 fit in there just great!  And the heating pad is such a great idea to keep your bread warm.




As Tracie said in her interview she had changed the design slightly.  She has made a sleeve for her heating pad.  This is brilliant.  I just suggested that she finish off the edges with a serge or a turned in seam, and she took it one step further.  Now when you want to wash it you only have to wash the sleeve for the warmer!




This warmer is made with the perfect fabrics too.  It stands up all by itself, but it also folds up nicely for storage.  For me in my little house this is super important!  
This would be an awesome gift for any mom, grandma, or friend.  
But hold it, that is only one item she has in her shop:

  

How fun are these unique items?  She has lots of recycled items in her shop!  Tracie also says she loves custom items... so ask away!  :)
