Commenter: FirefillyCreating is in my soul and if I didn't share it I think I'd burst! I have to admit I'm a bit obsessed; whether it be sewing, kitting, crocheting...I love them all! And spreading that love is a very good thing; it makes the world a better and more beautiful place :)
Commenter: lizzie o
I love teaching ppl how to do crafty things! i've taught a few ppl to crochet!! i'm still new to sewing... but i like to share little tips I figure out along the way if i see someone else struggling!
Sewing Insight - Have more than one stitch remover, because they mysteriously disappear on you when you need them the most! Love Amy Butler!
I'm making the blossom purse from Amy Butler's book now. It's been the most tedious purse pattern to get together. But with it half way done, I think it will be the purse that I'm most proud of! It is absolutely beautiful. I really want to buy this book! But hopefully I will win it!
My favorite tip is to use the elastic from old pantyhose for the casing in children's clothes. I've been doing this for years. I work at an assisted living facility and mend my residents' clothes. I work third shift and am allowed to take my sewing machine and I get to be VERY creative in figuring out how to mend their clothes with what I have in my sewing bag. I don't charge them anything... it is an easy way to stay awake from 11PM to 7AM. They don't know who provides this service and I'm not sure they need to know. I enjoy it thoroughly!!
