I've been sewing most of my life. When I was young, I made clothes for myself and when I had children, I sewed some toys for them. I eventually got into making draperies and many household items. I stopped sewing for several years but started up again when my first granddaughter was born.
My first project was a quilt with an appliqué in the middle. I never made a quilt before or did any appliqué work but it put the sewing bug back in me.
I started making rag dolls but one can only use just so many so my friends told me I should try selling them.
I found a nice gift shop in my area that sells not only manufactured items but also handmade items and started bringing my creations there.
You can see some of the work I've been doing in these pictures and if you'd like to check out the gift shop, you can find them on Facebook.
