okay, a few weeks ago, I started making felt playfood for my kids. This evolved into me finding this site, and becoming a craft addict! I've started several projects and am taking turned working on them all... but, I *really* wanted to get a sewing machine and work on doing on sewing some larger projects (sewing by hand is SO time consuming)... but I purchased one yesterday. I've made up my mind that next christmas,everyone is getting handmade gifts from me, and i've already started on a few. 

Anyway, a little background... I'm 28, with two little girls, and am definately into finding patterns for toys/barbie clothes and clothing for them, and plus size patterns for me... so I bid (and won) this awesome lot on ebay today!

Can you say perfect for me?? Plus, I made a stop at a thrift store an hour away and they had tons of great vintage patterns for .25 each, plus the most beautiful mohair yarn (super vintage, the tag must be from the 50's) for $.80! They had tons, so I bought a few to make my mom a mohair scarf as a birthday gift. I've also lucked into some great remnants for cheap that were mislabeled, and now I'm ready to start sewing! I can only hope I can do have of the stuff on here that has inspired me.. all you guys are amazingly talented!!

I'm so excited to be a part of this site Smiley

My camera is screwy right now... but I have. I'm working on my first swap items, plus I have about 4 or 5 ongoing things I'm working on, and I made some stuff for my kids (and a purse for a friend), so I'm crafting constantly Smiley
