My name is Jenn. I love love love to selfish sew! (and thankfully have a job that encourages this) I also have 2 girlies that I love to sew for, a 3yr old and a 1yr old. I am trying to get myself to stretch some comfort zones and sew a little for the husband this winter and also some soft toys.
I started sewing when I had my oldest as I wanted her to have cute things but couldn’t fund them all. I was soooooo bad when I started, mainly because I was scared I would hate sewing in the end and didn’t want to “waste” money on patterns! lol. Don’t worry – that ship has LONG sailed!!! I now know the value of a good pattern! You really should see some of that first sewing I did… I wish I had kept some of those pictures!
Not too sure what else to say about myself to be honest… How about a random fact? I told my husband when we were starting to get serious that I really don’t like getting flowers ad he should rather save the flower $ for a pair of shoes instead of wasting it on flowers. My mom thinks I am crazy for that…. You probably do too… Please tell me I’m not the only one who would rather have something that will last and get use rather than flowers.
I’m so excited to be on this blogging adventure with some great friends! I’m looking forward to getting to know you readers and get people involved and to challenge myself!
ps. Feel free to comment on here with a little random fact about yourself or why you started sewing tidbit 🙂
random fact – i agree about the flowers!!! now i’d also be all, “save that for fabric” – aha!
You cray. I want flowers AND shoes.
