thanks for the bit emira! This project was awesome, and honestly I had a real 'block' for the first week(I had 2 weeks to complete it) I went to some fiber art shows and got inspiration. I was still nervous - cutting up such costly garments, but I had to just ignore that and go for it. I tried to plan some things out. . but I find the more planning I do with recycled garments, the more stressful it is. I just make an initial move and then follow it. . then there can be no disappointments, every step is a challenge and exploration. After each phase, I would feel satisfaction - which would then give me confidence for the next step.

Was that really too 'deep' and corny to talk about sewing? hahaha. . . xojanelle

Buy My Book?

  • The book I co-wrote with my business partner Lauren Bacon is available at Amazon. How nutty is that? The Boss of You is a business book for women looking for advice to start or run a successful small business. The book features advice from some pretty smart gals including Jenny Hart (Sublime Stitching), Grace Boney (Design Sponge), Alex Beauchamp (Another Girl at Play), and many others.
