My second question to Jayne was this: What do you love about your craft?
Her Answer: I love creating! Having the freedom to do what I want with color, texture and design! It has been an awesome experience being able to do what I do!
I let the fabric speak to me and rarely know where a design will take me from start to finish! That is one of the things I love about quilting and sewing: there are no rules! I can think outside the proverbial box! Add a little here, cut a bit there and in the end it all comes together and becomes a masterpiece to me!
I was a little scared when I started designing my own things! I didn't know if anyone would 'get' what I do and like it! Thankfully there is a place out there for not only my creations, but for so many others!
Today I'd like to showcase some more of Jayne's detailed work. This girl is a whiz at small machine sewing.
Do you need or would you like to have a handmade business card holder? If you are anything like me, you've bought one from Walmart, and are thinking, "No, I got a ding dang business card holder," but wait, these business card holders Jayne creates are something different.
My holder is made out of this fabric, mine is long instead of wide. This is what I do. I keep my debit card in my business card case, which I keep in my billfold. When I pull out my debit card, one of my business cards comes out with it, which I promptly give to whomever is ringing me up.
But that's enough about me...
If you look closely, you will see her corners are neat and crisp. If you've done any sewing at all you know how important it is to have good corners...and if you haven't done any sewing, well, you'll just have to believe me.
So far I've shown you Jayne's talents as a quilt maker, today I've shown you how intricate and detailed her work can be with the business card/debit card holders...but of course there is more.
Her Change Purses are as sweet and detailed as all her other works. I have a feeling there is someone on your Christmas List that would just love to have something like this...go check out her other choices (there are many), this would be the perfect little stocking stuffer, one that you put in the toe of the stocking, because that's where the most special stocking presents go, right?
Tomorrow, tomorrow...be sure you come back tomorrow. I will be showcasing some of Jayne's amazing kitchen creations!
