Why Crafting Matters: Louise Aspin, Guest Crafter

by Edward Pickering on February 24, 2021

Since I was a small child I have loved working with fabrics – the touch and feel of them is so inspiring and colour is a passion for me.  My mother used to make all of my dresses for me when I was young – with matching head kerchiefs and headbands for each dress and she would always cut out a dress from the same fabric for a matching dress for my doll.  I have a memory of hand sewing a doll dress from fabric scraps with my mom when I was about 5 years old.

As a young mother I carried on the tradition and made many of my children’s clothes…..little coats with embroidered images on the back – matching hats – they were stylish toddlers!  Each Christmas eve the kids received new flannel jammies I had worked on prior to the holidays.

And now – in my spare time – I actually have a very demanding career – I play with fabric.  My friends at Chetwyn Farms – Shed – inspired me to make some project bags for them… I hope you enjoy using them as much as I enjoyed making them.
