San Antonio, TX, US

I've been sewing and crafting my entire life. I also teach others to create.

Being a lefty, I've had to teach myself many
things in the sewing and crafting world, because most directions are right handed. This may eem tivial to some, butwhen you are told to hold in your left hand, and do with your right hand, things can get frustrating. To this end, Iusually find lefties when I teach, and sho them how to reverse the directions.

craft interests: crochet, embroidery, jewelry making, knitting, paper crafts, quilting, restyle, sewing

Re: How to Make a Valentine from an Onion

This is one of the most inventive uses of onion skin I have ever seen. I think it would be a great project for my grandkids to make, too.
I am having a problem downloading your project, so i'll have it handy.
Any suggestions?

Re: Summer Wedding Dress

I love the Summer Wedding dress!! It's girly and versatile with the layers, and easy to change colors.

It is also a great idea with back the lacing for changes in your figure. No multiple fittings, and it can be worn more than once!

Re: How do you use recycling in your sewing?

I have always taken every usable part of a garment off of it; ie. buttons, workable zippers, velcro, pockets, trims, etc. Then, I take the garment down to useable pieces and make other things.
As a child and teen, I'd restyle clothes given to me by my mom's friend and make complete outfits for myself. Then,
when my daughter was little, I make shorts out of long pants for some friends, took the legs and small scraps and make coverall skirts for her. Everybody wanted to know where I found such cute outfits.
I told them from Singer. Since they didn't know that brand, I smiled and told them that was the brand of my sewing machine.

Re: Bright Pink Interlock Necklace

I really love this necklace! Where do you get the upcycled tin, or do you paint it yourself?

I'd like to try my hand at creating with this medium.
