I love making ween purses for ween fans
I'm very lucky to have the tools at hand to express my creativity. I use my own patterns now, after years of practicing from tutorials from this awesome website. I've gotten to a point where people really dig my stuff, and it's legit.
I love ween for so many different reasons, and one is that they have a huge community of artists creating every type of art you can imagine, and I get to be one of them. They're inspiring a lot of people to make beautiful things.

I have a Bernina Artista machine, I use a variety of different supplies and brands when doing embroidery and sewing. And, I'm very lucky to have digitizing software so I can make my own designs, I wouldn't have it any other way.
It's like discovering fire when you finally find the right medium. And mine is textiles and embroidery.

It's taken me 20 years to get here, following tutorial after tutorial, ripping seams apart over and over, so many broken needles, bird's nests thread knots under the stitch plate, all trial and error, all fake it til you make it, all just a passion for making what I wanted and not what I thought the customer wanted.
And finally, I look at my work sometimes and can't believe I did it. It makes me very happy.

Thanks everybody!
