Today’s feature interview is with Fenna of FABulous Home Sewn. Fenna has designed some cute purses and wallets, and even has some free applique patterns for download from her Craftsy shop. She is also a stay-at-home mom to 5 kids! Not sure how she finds the time I made the Petal Purse pattern last year, and my daughters love it. Read on for the interview and then enter the giveaway at the end. There’s also a discount code at the end of the post!
How did you decide to start designing patterns? Did it evolve from your love of sewing or had you always planned on designing patterns?
Can you describe a typical day for you?
What was the first thing you ever sewed that you can remember? How did it go?
Since this is Canada inspired blog tour, tell me a little about where you live. Is there one place nearby that you always recommend to new visitors? (A shop, restaurant or landmark).
Is there any other place in Canada that you’ve always wanted to visit or that you do visit on a regular basis?
Do you think that being Canadian influences your designs?
What are your top 3 favourite sewing or creative resources? (books, websites, etc)
What is your #1 sewing tip or trick?
A cool thing I learned to prevent ripping the stitches on button holes, is to take the seam ripper, poke it through at one end, and then back out in the middle. Rip. Repeat from the other side. There’s no need to be super careful about those last few millimeters at the end of the button holes!
