*Melissa is our Season 6 Champion! She won 7 of the ten weeks! You guys must really like her 🙂 Congrats Melissa!*
1.Tell us a little about you and your blog.
Iâ€™m Melissa and Iâ€™m a SAHM to my 2 little girls. I started Sew Like My Mom last June to share my sewing projects with family and friends, and to keep a journal of sorts of the things Iâ€™ve made.
2.How and when did you start crafting?
I always crafted as a kid and enjoyed making things whenever possible. My Mom was great about having us actively participate in crafts for holidays and let us go all out for school projects. I started sewing in high school, but only dabbling. I branched out a little in college, but have really come into sewing and crafting the way I do now in the last 3 years.
3.How often do you craft?
Usually every day! Itâ€™s a rare day that I donâ€™t sit down to my machine, get together supplies for a project, or spend hours tracing appliquÃ©s on Heat n Bond.
4.Where do you get your inspiration?
I get inspiration from everywhere! At first I was only able to copy other peopleâ€™s ideas, but the more I stretch my imagination, the more Iâ€™m able to put my own twist on things I see. My girls inspire me a lot, too, because Iâ€™m always thinking of things they need or could use.
5.What is your favorite medium to work in?
Fabric. I love to sew and to stretch myself to learn new sewing techniques. Iâ€™m quickly learning to love paper, paint and many other mediums, though!
6.What is your guilty pleasure?
TV and Cherry Coke! When I have a free evening I love to snuggle under a blanket and get caught up on my DVR.
7.What makes you smile?
My girls. They are more amazing than I ever could have imagined!! Also the support of my husband makes me really happy. Heâ€™s an incredible man and Iâ€™m blessed to have all 3 of them in my life!
8.What is your favorite thing to do (other than crafting)?
Spending time with my family. My husbandâ€™s job is pretty demanding so we donâ€™t have a lot of family time. It makes me treasure each moment we do get together!
