Profile for SunflowersByDesign
I'm an at home mom with 2 great kids. I love to sew, I've always loved to sew. I've been behind a sewing machine(s) for 40 years now....I LOVE fabric and creating things with fabric.
I currently upcycle old jeans into purses and many other accessories. This was an idea of a friend who didn't sew but thought it was a cool idea. I really wasn't sold on the idea of deconstructing heavy denim jeans. But it has grown into wonderful creative work for me.
I try to have much of my bags made from repurposed materials, like old jeans. I have found it's a lot of fun to deconstruct things and then recreate something different from them!!
I work at recycling, repurposing and upcycling all that I can and have a lot of fun rummaging through garage sales and thrift stores looking for unique and interesting supplies. Church sales are my very favorite places to shop!
All of my listings are made in my home by me. Typically they are one of a kind creations made with experience, an eye for detail and precision.
I don't typically use patterns! Some of my best purses were experiments and made just to see if I could do it!!
