i love to sew and create. my passion is taking vintage fabric or clothing and making it into something else, something fresh and new, something useful. i am constantly looking at what people are wearing, noticing the cut, admiring the stitch work. or looking at what people are wearing and dissecting it in my mind to see how much usable material i could get out of it and what i could do with it.
i have been sewing since i was a child, having both a mother and a stepmother that were competent sewers. as an adult i find that i hate following patterns, i much prefer to look over the materials at hand and figure out what i can do with them. because of this, i never seem to make the same item twice. also because of this, i need to make an item while i have it in my head, or else i lose track of what i was going to do. i should probably keep a notebook of drawings and ideals but that seems…
