Carla Dinkins' Profile

About

Hello my name is Carla.

I use different types of yarn and fabulous fabrics to make unique and one of a kind bags, bowls and bangles. I enjoy employing numerous techniques like wool felting, hand knitting and crocheting. It’s important for me to make pieces that are both useful and beautiful.
I started knitting at a very early age. My Dad taught my Mother and Mom taught me. A bit later I taught myself how to crochet. I worked the Summer of 1966 at the A & W so that I could buy the fanciest Singer sewing machine available. I still do all my sewing on that machine. Fast forward a few years and now that I am retired I have lots of time to knit, crochet and sew.
While I do sell my creations, this is my first attempt to do it on the Internet. My good friends keep telling me I need to post my work on Etsy.com so here I am, an Etsy Newbie.

My friends and clients love my fiber creations because they are different to what you usually see everywhere else. I never use patterns and when I did I never ended up following them, I got an idea half way through a pattern and would have to go with it, so I just gave up on patterns. I am very inspired by the many different types of yarn and fabulous fabrics now available.
Each step of the creation process from idea to finished treasure takes many hours of meticulous work to assure that the results are no less than the best possible and the resulting creation will be treasured by the owner.
All my projects are created by me in a smoke and pet free environment.
