Better Know A Crafter: Jessica Storey

Jessica came into the store with the most adorable apron--and totally amazed us with the fact that she created her own pattern from a vintage apron. Nice work, Jessica!

Jessica Storey

What makes you want to be crafty?
I am a stay at home mom to my 3 little muses. I craft because I like to make things that are cute for my kids. I like to make things just to see if I can do it--mostly embroidery, needlefelting, quiet books and knitting.

Tell us about your apron.
My friend Heather and I were looking for cute aprons that didn't cost a fortune. She found one in an antique store that we completely tore apart to use for our pattern. We used material from Fancy Tiger and scrap bias tape and ric-rac from home.

How did you start sewing?
I began crafting after I had kids. When they were first born I was so bored, I just needed something to do. I just started doing stuff.

What is your favorite animal?
A dragonfly, but that is more of an insect, I guess.

Thanks Jessica! Happy crafting!
