Nelly V's Profile
I am originally from Veracruz, Mexico, now living with my husband and son in Canada. I love bold colours and you will see this in my creations, usually inspired by all the colourful Mexican arts and crafts I grew up with.
I have always been crafty, from making my own greeting cards, to friendship bracelets, to knitting, crochetting and handsewing and altering pieces of clothing to fit my (then) very thin frame, to repurposing items.
Now, about sewing... this is a recent romance, one that I fought for many years, but finally gave in to. My beloved grandma has been a great influence in my recently discovered passion for fabrics and fabric creations, as I grew up watching and sometimes helping her create amazing things.
Thank you for visiting my shop, and hope the items in it put a smile on your face,...
