I've been sewing since I was eight years old. My mother was a sewing teacher for the Singer Sewing Machine Company in Birmingham, Alabama before she married my dad, so it was only natural that she started training me so early.
When my girls were little, the two of us kept them in "fashion plate" form. I think I have made so many different types of garments and accessories, I've lost count of them.
My items come from a non-smoking house. However, my buddies, Kiki, a grey striped kitty, and Q T Pi, my green parakeet, are my constant companions, making sure I behave myself by feeding them everytime they ask.
When I sew something new, I usually use a commercial pattern, but if nothing matches what I am imagining, I make up my patterns in my head and on interfacing before I try them on...
