About

One thing led to another....

I began sewing in middle school Home Ec. class. From their I made my own hair scrunchies in the early 90's. Fashion!! I have always loved crafts and working with my hands. My favorite craft has always been sewing.

Sewing to me is like a butterfly. You start with something small and simple like a little caterpillar or a square of fabric. And before you know it, you transform that square into something beautiful. I love to look at the patterns or grain in the fabric and start fresh, making as I go. Sometimes the end result is a not so lovely moth but other times it is a beautiful butterfly, ready for its destined adventure.

I do a lot of custom orders, mainly of my banners. I just think banners are so fun. They are the perfect pairing of color and expression of the heart. My banner work starts with the customer. Sometimes the customer knows exactly what they want. Sometimes they are on the fence about the color options. I get a feel for their event or photo shoot and suggest color options on quick burlap swatches as in the picture above. Once the decision is made and I am in productions, I send the customer a quick picture to confirm that the color is indeed what they want. Sometimes I end up changing the color because they change their mind once they see it life size. That is ok by me. I want your celebration to be a happy colorful one. I do the same thing with my fabric custom orders. Depending on the custom order, I will either do a quick sketch and work with the customer on it's specifics; or I will do a mock up using scrap fabrics to show the customer. Along with all my customs, I like trying out new products and having a lot of "ready to ship" products.

SimplySewtastic to me is a release from my long day. It makes me happy and it makes you, the customer, happy. That is what it is all about!

Thanks for visiting my shop!!

My specialty is anything you can make with a needle and a thread. I use quality fabrics, and prewash everything, unless it is dry clean only. I live and sew in a smoke free home.

I like to make a variety of products using different fabric design options. I typically don't make too many of the same thing. That gets boring. However if you do want a lot of something, please send me an email.

My philosophy is go with what inspires me. I make products that can be used in your everyday life. My hope is whatever I make will make someone's life a little easier and fun.
