I ordered this bag for my cousin who sits with the turtle nests at Wrightsville Beach, NC. It's perfect for her keys, special flashlight, beach towel and snacks.

When a customer contacted me last week wanting another felted fiber cuff, I jumped at the chance to spend a couple of days playing with fiber. Sometimes I just need a little nudge! These cuffs are very free-formed and and random. Love the artsy look...
Cutting and painting leather and making these cute flower pins!
I'm so thankful to be working inside on this cheery tree design. We have a -20 degrees here-grimacing!

Fabric, Fiber, Fun

Twenty- three years ago, I decided to quit the corporate job for good and start my home business. Of course, Etsy was not around then but I had my creations in craft shows near and far!

I started sewing Barbie clothes when I was around 10. I loved digging through the scrap box and finding just the right fabric for my design. I can still hear my Mom's voice say, " Julia, if you can sew those little Barbie pieces, you can sew your own clothes."
And I did.

In college I majored in Textiles and Business and started my career in retail management. I managed several fabric stores throughout my twenties. Then my beautiful kids happened and I needed a change. StitchesbyJulia was born.

I love working with fabric, fiber and textures. For the past 10 years, I have been creating with a free motion applique technique. It's like drawing with thread and I love it! Another favorite of mine is mixed media art and making journals.

Take a browse through my Etsy store and have a blessed day! Julia
