Describe your aesthetic in three words:
Practical, Natural & Pretty
Do you sew for yourself?
Occasionally. I’m kind of like the cobbler, whose children don’t have shoes… alot of the things I make go into my Etsy shop, or are given as gifts. I have a long list of things I’d like to make for my home. One of these days I’ll get to that. ; )
Any new projects you want to tackle?
I’ve just started carving my own stamps to use with future sewing projects. And I have a custom order that is taking my sewing in a new direction. I like that aspect of custom requests – they motivate me to try new techniques and problem solve, which eventually evolves into different approaches to my sewing and new products for my shop. I’ll be listing mini pennant garlands and sewing kits in my shop soon.
Thanks, Jenn! Be sure to visit her Etsy shop and check out her other pincushions for sale! During April, Sew Weekly readers will receive 10% off their orders by using the discount code: “Pincushion” at checkout!
