Wonderfully made, great design and arrived on time!
Loving the ability to be creative.
It was the time I spent in Home Economics class that ignited my passion for sewing. After learning to make my own clothes for my Barbie doll at a younger age, my Home Ec. teacher noticed that I was excelling when creating the assigned projects. It was then that I decided I wanted to be a fashion designer; however, it was hard to achieve that dream while in the confines of my own community. Instead, I focused on creating my own clothing which was often based on three different sewing patterns combined into one unique fashion design.
After becoming a mother, I revisited my sewing skill to dress my three boys when our finances were limited. There was nothing I loved more than seeing them wear outfits that I created with my own two hands and discount fabric I picked up at the store. Once again, I put my designing dreams on the back burner to pursue a career in teaching and have only just gotten back to my love of creating with my Etsy shop All Things Old Are New.
Inspired by the beauty of textiles, both vintage and modern, I have a sixth sense when it comes to pairing up fabrics and trims. It often takes only a matter of seconds for me to expertly layout a new fabric palette before setting to work behind my sewing machine. From the comfort of my home studio, I enjoy creating bespoke handmade items that will bring joy to another person's life. Each one of my products also make impressive gifts for any occasion.
