Today it`s Giveaway Day!
So jump over to Sew Mama Sew and check it out.
And this is what I`ve got for you:
I`d like to know, how you came to sewing. What was the moment when you knew that you`d like to create something by your own. Had there been any fabric or any object you saw and you knew, when I`m not going to do this I`ll never be happy again, I`ll die, I`ll cry for days and days and days... How or when did you got the Virus???
This is my story:
One day, I did some shopping near by and discovered a cute little shop. When I went in my heart started bumping. Wonderful fabrics and stuff all over the shop. Little handmade things, bags, pouches, bookcovers, quilts for babies, clothing and toys and and and. And all in a style I never saw before.
The owner of the shop must have been in the USA, because she offered so many american designers like Amy Butler, Michael Miller, Robert Kaufman and so on (you know, most of german fabric stores do not have any of them. They sell what I call boring old-fashioned patchwork fabrics). So I immediately had been infected and I knew I ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO DO THIS!!!!
Even this shop owner, Diana, also offered classes. One of it was an evening class where you could sew a bag. This is what I did. So this pretty small bag was the very first thing I sewed 2 and a half years ago:
As I know now it had been a pattern by Amy Butler.
After that it took 3 months sewing on my old machine til I bought a small modern one. And from that on I`m sewing. Sometimes every day. It makes me happy and it makes me forgetting everything around me.
Bags in all variations are still one of my favourite objects.
Since some months I`m also interested in sewing modern quilts.
My Giveaway for you is not a bag and not a quilt, it`s something completely different. It`s one of my first things I sewed . It`s this lovely angel (Christmas-Time!!) designed and sewed with fabric by Tilda:
So if you like to win this angel please leave a comment and tell me your becoming-a-sewing-woman-or-man-story.
This Giveaway is open til December 16th 5pm PST. I`m going to choose a winner on Sunday, December 18th.
Everyone is invited to participate (I send the Giveaway internationally). I`d be glad to hear your story!
