Grandma Sweden's Profile

About

HI THERE all lovers of handicrafted things and VELCOME to my personal information.

I am swedish and I have loved to do things with my hands since I was a small child.At age of 6 years my mother cut the pieces needed for dollclothes for me and then she teached me how to use the NON-electric sewing-maschine.After that I was hooked on using the sewing-maschine.That experiance made me start doing wardrobes for all my dolls (never playing with them - just sewing for them) and as a teenager I made most of my own clothes in my own design.

Then I became mother of 5 children who needed new clothes all year around and while sewing clothes for them I ended up quite an artist on using my sewing-maschine.Since then the sewing maschine became one of my artistic instruments in creating my own designs - using the maschine as a needle in my hand.

HI THERE all lovers of handicrafted things and VELCOME to my personal information.

I am swedish and I have loved to do things with my hands since I was a small child.At age of 6 years my mother cut the pieces needed for dollclothes for me and then she teached me how to use the NON-electric sewing-maschine.After that I was hooked on using the sewing-maschine.That experiance made me start doing wardrobes for all my dolls (never playing with them - just sewing for them) and as a teenager I made most of my own clothes in my own design.

Then I became mother of 5 children who needed new clothes all year around and while sewing clothes for them I ended up quite an artist on using my sewing-maschine.Since then the sewing maschine became one of my artistic instruments in creating my own designs - using the maschine as a needle in my hand. That was my start into being an artisan.

Now I have been a dedicated professional artisan of making handicrafted homemade things of my own designs in my studios most of my grown life and for many years now it has also made my living.

As you can understand by this I am a truly selfeducated artist.

I has always felt that I am as happiest when my hands and mind is working together in creating things, especially new things and the creating process is also a great help trough the ruff times in life.

I love to work with materials as textiles, skin/leather, beads and buttons of all kinds, especially vintage plastics and other materials as well. For textiles and skin I still love to use my sewing-maschines in an artistic way - drawing my own motives and sewing them into decorations on the materials and that way create unique items.

To use old things or materials into new creations and make new unique items is my first passion. I don´t like the idea of throwing leftovers away when they can be a part of new creations - I like the idea of recycling the way it was used by necessety only a few generations ago.

For my composing and sewing art I have several times been rewarded.

I am very thrilled to be able to expose some handicrafted things of my own designs to the interested public of hand and homemade unique things here on Etsy.
