Random Generator picked #42!!
AND THE WINNER IS:
New Give Away starting later today!
Snazz is a wonderful children's shop on Etsy! Michele has the cutest headbands, hats, bibs, aprons, dresses etc. I did notice that some of her hats, aprons and headscraves are adult size. She is from Halifax, Nova Scotia Canada! Also take time to check out her Blog .
How did you decide on your shop name?
I chose the name snazz as a fun way to describe what I want my creations to be. Each piece of snazz is meant to bring color and fun to the mundane and never takes itself too seriously. (like me)
When did you start sewing and who taught you how to sew?
I HATED sewing for a great many years. I never finished my home ec sewing projects in school and felt nothing but anger and frustration towards the whole endeavor. When I found myself about to start a family and living in my first "real" house I decided I wanted to make some window coverings. I bought a sewing machine and haven't stopped sewing since.
Are there other crafts you would like to try?
I would love to try to knit and crochet someday. (But not yet)
What or who inspires you?
I am inspired by beautiful fabrics. Since joining etsy, I have discovered so many different designers that I had never seen before. I also am growing increasingly obssessed with Japanese fabrics.
Do you have a day job?
I am a stay at home mom with two boys ( ages 6 and 8). Sewing is very much an oasis of creativity that I enjoy while they are at school.
What is the item in your shop you enjoyed making the most and why?
I am really having fun with hats these days. They are such a fun way to show your individuality. Some people are afraid of wearing hats. I really think that anyone can wear them. You just need to find the right one for you.
And now for the Give Away!!
Michele has made this amazing Strawberries and Sweets headband just for this give away! This headband is suitable for women and girls alike. It is machine washable and reversible with two great sides to choose from. One side is a lovely pink twill fabric with embroidered strawberries and the other a cotton print with delicious cupcakes.
