About Me

My photo
My mother was an expert seamstress and often did alterations on costly garments. She once told me that I would learn more about sewing by taking a well made garment apart than I would from any pattern. How true I discovered this statement was! Recently I was looking over a pattern that a friend gave me. She wants me to help her sew aprons for Christmas gifts. After studying the sewing instructions a bit I came to a familiar conclusion; if I purchased a finely crafted apron it would not be put together this way. Who writes these instructions anyway?!

custom designed baby quilt

Custom creations are my first love of sewing, especially when I am given general directions, colors, fabric swatches, etc and you allow me to design and make a unique creation just for you. In this case I was given some left over curtain fabric, photos of bumper pad and dust ruffle as well as photos of the painted nursery. This is what I came up with. Prices would range depending on the labor required $50-$100. It was fun for me to see a photo of the finished quilt in the nursery since I was mostly working off photos.
