How did you start making them? Selling on etsy?
I was totally clueless in terms of sewing. But I somehow decided to just go for it and learn it by tutorial on the net. So, I bought myself a sewing machine and started experimenting with it. I love fabrics with big focus object. Because all these can be transformed to lovely pincushions. How did I make it to Etsy? I was blog hopping and came about this wonderful site for handmade lovers. So, I decided to try it out and I would say, it's a lovely platform to make new friends all over the world to share wonderful craft ideas!
What do you love making most?
I love making fabric bookmarks and luggage tags the most! Little things that can be used in our everyday lives. I love how a little coaster can brighten up your day in the office. Or how these luggage tags were sent out as wedding favors.
Why do you craft?
I craft because I love it. I love how handmade items are given a more personal touch compared to mass produce items. I hope to venture into full time when I have the support of my family and my partner.
