On Etsy since 2010

I imagine all kinds of creatures and some become cloth whimseys

Once upon a time I walked into a teddy bear store and was amazed to find out that artists make bears. I went home and got a book on bear making and made some of the most awful looking bears one has ever seen...But I got better! I decided that fur bears are great but so are quilt bears and fabric bears and recycled material bears are cool too!

I branched out into dolls. When I started I had to make multiple heads and hands for each doll. I cannot tell you how many times I turned the fingers and blew right through the seams. I cannot tell you how many times the doll I thought would be a baby fairy came out with the face of an evil witch! Throw out that head and start over! But I got better. I branched out into whimsical animals. If I think I can make it I try...and sometimes it even turns out...Its the "try" that counts.

Everything I make is sitting out in my sewing room. I sew for me, not for sale...I only put them on Etsy so I have room on my shelves for more! check them out....

Along the way I have also gathered lots of odds and ends --- I have decided to pass them on to someone who can use them..check out these sections of my shop too

    Sewing must be in my genes. My grandmothers were fabulous seamstresses. When I retired from teaching,I decided to sew again....but whimseys not clothes I have a great husband, wonderful children and great friends. When I am not sewing I play!

    Jack is 11 years old. He sleeps at my feet as I sew. While he understands my passion, he also understands the need to play....dropping a tennis ball in my lap - time for a break!
