Getting Started

I love to create something out of nothing.  Taking yarn or fabric and turning it into something you can wear or use is the greatest thing.  I started sewing when I was about 5 years old.  A friend was having a birthday party for one of her dolls and I didn't have anything to give her.  I asked my mom for some scraps and I designed, cut out, and sewed a pair of pants for the doll.  I remember them being very flimsy and crude but I loved the process and I was hooked.  The only thing I love more is when someone loves what I've made as much as I do.  That's why I'm constantly trying to market and sell my creations.  I make bows and headbands and sell them at my friend's boutique here in town and now I want to try my hand at the Etsy thing.  Wish me luck and visit me often!
