Since moving to Chicago last week, I’ve started to venture out and check out what crafty destinations the city has to offer. My first stop? Wolfbait & B-girls, a dream store for the urban handmade fanatic. The shop’s owners design and make their own clothes, right in the store! They also carry a lot of locally made items, such as screen printed onesies and t-shirts, jewelry, buttons, and home decor. If you’re ever in Chicago, head out to Logan Square to hit them up. You can also check them out in this NY Times feature.
