Watching old episodes of Project Runway inspired me to take the leap and figure out how the machine worked. With the sewing machine manual, some patience, and a seam ripper, I was able to teach myself to sew. And once I started sewing, I couldn't stop! I've sewn everything from quilts to aprons to shower curtains.

After a few months of making bags, aprons, and quilts for my family and friends, I decided to branch out into a new venture : selling. I started Handmade by KP in the fall of 2011 and, less than a year into this new world of business, I am having a blast! I love searching out cute and modern fabric and making highly functional items with a little flair. I love being inspired by my life and the life of those around me…

This little business has allowed me to discover my true passion for sewing. I take pride in what I make and I love when others feel as passionately about my product as I do! I love our country's rediscovered passion for all things handmade and I am excited to be a part of it!

Thanks for checking out the shop!
