I love how flowers are so pretty and all.
I love their shape and their color.
I also love how they’re a little bit of a pain to sew.
But, for the most part, I can just buy my fabric and make my own embroideries.
There are certain things I love about embroidering, like the fact that it’s not just a pattern, it’s a way to express your own personality.
You have to be creative.
I have a couple of different styles, like floral embroiderys and a bit of crochet, but they’re all pretty much the same.
There’s no such thing as the perfect flower, I just have to find a flower that fits me and I like that I can make it myself.
When I do a flower, what do I sew it with?
I’m usually trying to make it look more of a flower.
I think it’s just so cute and I love that.
What are your favourite flowers?
I love all kinds of flowers.
I’m obsessed with the tulips, they’re always on my mind.
They’re just so beautiful.
I like to make a flower to keep on my wall, I think that’s a pretty perfect idea.
What is your favourite embroideried fabric?
I’ve been making flowers for years.
I’ve always had a love for fabric.
When you start to learn how to sew, you start getting creative and you’ll make new patterns, so I always have a lot of new patterns to make.
I sew in a variety of fabrics.
I use cotton, acrylic, linen, wool, felt and even embroider yarn.
What kind of fabric are you using?
I like fabrics that are warm and have a bit more stretch.
I would say my favourite fabric is cotton because it’s super soft.
I feel like it’s more of an everyday fabric, it has a nice texture and it’s got a lot more stretch and it just feels really good to me.
If you’ve ever used fabric like that and made something from it, you know how easy it is to sew on a flower!
What’s the biggest mistake you’ve made when you’ve been sewing?
I really struggle with sewing on a fabric that’s too tight or too loose, it just just makes it so hard.
Sometimes I’m like, “Oh no, I’m too tight”.
It can be like a stitch that’s never been done before, it can be a stitch where you can’t really make it out.
I do the worst of the worst and it happens so often.
It’s like, you have to really be a perfectionist to be able to make that perfect stitch.
What do you do when you have a problem?
I just go home and make things.
That’s really the worst thing.
I can’t just go out and sew, I need to do something with it.
I always try to make things with some kind of pattern, like a flower or something, and I do that when I have some sort of a problem.
I just need to know what I need and how to make the pattern to solve it.
What’s one thing you’ve never done that you would do again?
I would definitely never do anything like that again.
I know a lot people can’t do that, and it can feel like you’re doing something wrong.
What advice would you give to someone looking to learn sewing?
Just go out there and learn, don’t think you need to be perfect.
There is a lot out there for you, there are patterns out there, there’s techniques.
Go out and try and find something that you love, but don’t be afraid to be a little more creative and do something different.
That will help you grow.
What would you do if you were stranded in a foreign country?
I’d do the same thing as anyone else.
I’d go back to Australia, make my way back to my home country and just stay for a little while, just to see if I can get back to where I was.
But I would always love to visit Australia.
I mean, I’ve lived here for so long, I could just walk in the door and get my bearings.
You can always go back, but I would absolutely love to go back and make some new flowers.
What about other projects you’d love to try?
I think I’d love for people to sew a little something that they love to do with a flower in it.
And I think a lot is down to how you’re feeling at the moment.
I was thinking of doing some of my own floral designs, like, I want to do a little flower for a friend or I want my own flower for my own pet.
What if we did a pet flower and they loved the pet flower, would you go for that too?
Well, if they did love the flower, then I’d definitely go for it.
If they didn
