Laura of Porcupine Stew invited me to join the Around The World Blog Hop! If this is your first time seeing the hop the blogger invited answers a few questions about their work and invites a few blogger to post the same the following week. Laura’s post can be seen here.
1. What am I working on?
I’m trying to finish the dress for Pen’s costume in time for Halloween (see above photo). I ordered the fabric in early September with the intention of sewing it during the month of September but shipping kept getting delayed. Hilariously, I had to make a “temporary” costume for Pen to wear at an event two weeks ago (see cuteness below) and my only motivation to finish the dress I’m working on is the fact that I already spent the money for the fabric and I already cut the fabric!
2. How does my work differ from others of its genre?
I tend to let my use of scraps and salvaged material from clothing dictate the style of patterns I use.
3. Why do I create what I do?
I like things to be useful which is why I’m drawn to creative pursuits that have a dual purpose. The finished project looks nice and you can wear/use it too!
I’m inviting for next week Starly @ Sew Starly. I met her, and other fabulous mommies, through an online due date club while pregnant with Seb. She has a super cute daughter just a few weeks older than Seb and I’m always in awe of what Starly makes. Be sure to check out her blog.
