I have always loved to sew and I am a self-confessed fabric-a-holic, so the day my daughter came home with a gaping hole in a brand new pair of jeans was the day that I tried my hand at masking the defect with funky fabrics by hand-stitching them onto the jeans, just like a pair of jeans that I had seen in a magazine at one time. The outcome wasn't too bad for a first attempt... the gaping hole was covered up with a collage of fabrics that came from a vivid turquoise Indian-style table runner, a paisley placemat, embroidery thread and a handful of sequins. I thoroughly enjoyed myself creating those jeans.

Since then I have put together many creations for my daughter. The attention they attracted locally was astounding, so much so, that I began taking custom orders. That was seven years ago. Since then I have opened my store on Etsy and I also sell my wares at local boutiques for crafters.
