When I was 6 or 7 my friend's grandma gave each of us a large box of fabric. I don't remember if I loved fabric before that (who can remember that far back!?!) but I know that I loved using that box of fabric to make . . . oh gee, lots of things. I don't know if you can really name what I made. Maybe crap? Ha! I wasn't allowed to use a sewing needle (At least not at my friends house, my mom probably would have let me) so we stapled a lot of fabric together to make clothes for our toys.
I've done a lot of "crafting" (hate that word, I'm an ARTIST, not a crafter) Crochet, knitting, needle point, etc etc. But I feel like I always go back to sewing. I majored in Family and Consumer Science (the new name for Home Ec) I took a lot of cooking, interior design and sewing. Funny thing, I didn't take pattern making because the class intimated me too much. And now I make my own patterns for every piece in my shop! If I could go back in time. . .
All this to say, sometimes I feel like a fraud. Like who am I to try and make a mark in the baby/toddler clothing world? But when I look back at my story, I almost wonder if I ever had a choice?
What is your life dream? That hobby you just can't get away from?
