PaperBird: Unfolded

I learned to sew from my mother when I was little. She and both of my grandmothers are/were great sewists, and inspirations to me. The idea of taking fabric and making it into something more useful or beautiful was fascinating.

Since I have had kids of my own, my desire for cute, perhaps odd, toys led me to experiment with patterns and create some things I wouldn't be able to buy elsewhere.

I see in them the same excitement I felt as a kid when my mother would create things. My son (5) watches each step, and tries to guess what I'm piecing together, and my daughter (10 months) screeches in delight when I stitch a happy little face on to a merbaby. It's so heartwarming to bring cuteness into others' lives as well.

The craft room is my happy place. I take my very rare free moments to create the cutest possible things with much love and attention to detail.

I'm a stay at home Army wife, and "Meme" to a five year old little dude, and a highly energetic baby girl. Sewing is my favorite thing to do when I have a few precious free moments. I make items when I am able, and give them the care and attention to make them durable, adorable, and safe for you to give (or keep!)

I strive to use high quality materials in my items. These materials add to the beauty and longevity of each item. I also love repurposing fabric. It is a lovely way to give fabric that otherwise would go to waste a new, happy life! I will always state in an item's description of it is made from repurposed materials. Otherwise, here is my soap box speech about the importance of sourcing quality fabric.
