Funny how things take shape in my life... It began when I was in 4th grade. My mom taught me the basics of sewing and I made a tiered, ruffled blue calico print skirt with satin ribbon trim to enter in the county fair. Don't know if it was the excitement of making something myself or the blue ribbon that got me hooked, but I have been sewing and creating things ever since. In high school, it got to the point that, I found myself confiscating old table cloths and curtains to make my fashion creations and I even had a side custom design fashion business going with friends at my school.
Fast forward to now...my partner and I had been looking, with no success, for unique, well-fitting hats to cover his then-10-years-growing locs as he worked in the garden. So, he dared me to make him one, which became two...now we are up to number 95 (I think...I have lost count). It wasn't long before…
