Katie Parris' Profile
Hello! My name is Katie and I am the owner of Handmade by KP. I began sewing after I received my mother's sewing machine as a Christmas gift in 2010. Watching old episodes of Project Runway inspired me to take the leap and figure out how the machine worked. With the sewing machine manual, some patience, and a seam ripper, I was able to teach myself to sew. And once I started sewing, I couldn't stop! I've sewn everything from quilts to aprons to shower curtains.
After a few months of making bags, aprons, and quilts for my family and friends, I decided to branch out into a new venture : selling. I started Handmade by KP in the fall of 2011 and, less than a year into this new world of business, I am having a blast! I love searching out cute and modern fabric and making highly functional items with a little flair. I love being inspired by my life and the life of those around me…
