Matryoshka seem to be popping up all over the popular scene nowadays. I thought they’d be a perfect match for a bicycle, since both are full of so much whimsy and nostalgia of childhood explorations.

I tried to use versatile color schemes for these saddle covers. I think between the red, yellow, blue, and purple these painted covers would look great on just about any bicycle! I also feel like I’ve done a good job creating variety between each cover, so that these dolls are all cousins, not twins!

As always, these covers are handpainted so that each one is unique. They are water-resistant, UV proof, and will stand up to wear. The sides are made out of spandex with elastic at the bottom, and they are lined on the bottom.

They’re up now in my Etsy shop!

Oh my, how could I have been so negligent of my website over the past 6 weeks?! I try to hold myself to posting one new project a week. I’m of course making things constantly, so the output isn’t a problem, but I’m not so great at documentation. Often I’m working on little projects, or busy with big but boring orders at work, and sometimes it seems like those things wouldn’t be so interesting on the website–they don’t necessarily contribute to the portfolio I’m try to build up. But rest assured: I am always making something.

Lately all my bike seat covers have had a tropical feel to them, and I keep thinking about fruit as I mix my colors. Could this be the manifestations of a daiquiri deficiency?

The swallows are always classic, and I’m really enjoying painting the calaveras. There’s a great opportunity for colors and designs, and the shape is perfect for a bike seat.

I’ve gone back to the original drawstring seat closure, instead of the elastic I’d been using for the past few months. It’s more work, but it’s what I’m feeling nowadays.

These seats are all up in my Etsy shop, which I am trying to get more diligent about–posting things more regularly, polishing the listings, and everything else I get a little lazy about.

Soon I will be getting a shiny new overlock machine as a collaborative birthday gift, and then the Burning Man costumes are going to come flying!




Well who doesn’t love peacocks? They are bizarre and unpractical but absolutely mesmerizing, and talk about that color scheme! They’re the perfect subject for a new edition of removable bicycle saddle covers.

Yes, all five are hand painted on recycled canvas. They are coated in a UV-proof and durable glossy sealant. The sides are made out of a spandex that has a slight sheen to it.

I had a lot of fun painting all of these together. I was constantly mixing paint to create the luscious colors, and it was fun to re-interpret the designs of the tail feathers every time.

I think any of these seat covers would look awesome on bikes that are blue, green, yellow, white, or even purple.

These seat covers are up in my Etsy shop right now!
