I'm an at home mom with 2 great kids. I love to sew, I've always loved to sew. I've been behind a sewing machine(s) for 40 years now....I LOVE fabric and creating things with fabric.
I currently upcycle old jeans into purses and many other accessories. This was an idea of a friend who didn't sew but thought it was a cool idea. I really wasn't sold on the idea of deconstructing heavy denim jeans. But it has grown into wonderful creative work for me.
I try to have some part of my bags made from repurposed materials, like old jeans. I have found it's a lot of fun to deconstruct things and then recreate something totally new from them!!
I try to be a recycler and have a lot of fun rummaging through garage sales and thrift stores looking for unique and interesting supplies. Church sales are my very favorite places to shop!…
