Hey you! My name is Tina Sparkles. I am a personal fashion artist and teacher livin it up Austin, TX-style. I love taking DIY to the max and always have a sewing project or two or three on the burner. Im absolutely mad about thrift and vintage and am especially fond of sewing up cool new threadz for myself made with recycled or reclaimed materials. In 2005, I started a wacky experiment and decided to stop shopping for new clothes. Instead, I make a lot of my own outfits, shop and restyle 2nd-hand, and get majorly lucky at clothes swaps with my friends. I have one of those logical yet creative brains which lends itself well to the challenge of making my own clothing patterns. Pattern-making is a fashion-fantastical, mathematical, extremely-experimental puzzle of sorts and I’m totally obsessed. I love figuring things out and sharing what I know with other DIY types and that is why I am here at CraftStylish!
