A couple from Browning, Montana recently got the attention of their regional newspaper with their colorful boots, jackets, infant carrier covers and other blanket style accessories. The Great Falls Tribune spoke with Belinda Bullshoe and asked her what inspired her to start making her creations.
Belinda Bullshoe of Browning started ordering earrings wholesale to sell at powwows, conferences and celebrations across Montana and Canada several years ago.
“I did a lot of research online to find a supplier of what I was looking for and from there, I found a good supplier for blankets,” Bullshoe said.
Although her grandmother made quilts, Bullshoe herself was not a sewer. But she started experimenting and used the blanket material to create an infant carrier cover.
“People liked them and we knew we were on to something,” Bullshoe said.
I contacted Belinda and she was nice enough to send over some photos of her favorite items for sale.
There's no website to order, so you'll have to hope they show up at one of the many pow wows they travel to in Northern U.S. and Canada. But if you're serious about getting your hands on some of these items you can contact Belinda at 406-845-8059 or via Facebook at at B DayChief Bullshoe.
