I work on a lot of sewn based projects. Some are for just for fun while others plague me in my dreams until i make them. I use sewing as a way of experimentation and i am often surprised by how a completed object turns out, whether this be material manipulation, colour or texture.
Items that capture my imagination habitually appear as stock in my ETSY store.
