Even in the womb my favorite color was pink. 
That is why it is so perfect to feature Sandra at Pink Lady Designs today!

Nickel Woodfern Large Purse or Laptop bag, $48
set of zippered pouches, flirtations, $16.50
Note pad and pen set, $16

Are you excited yet? 
Here is more about Sandra. She is such a joy! 

{{1. What made you decide to open your etsy shoppe?}} 
First, I taught myself to sew. I originally wanted to make my daughter a quilt. So I bought a good machine, picked up some sewing books and fabric, and went at it. I was really surprised how quickly I learned. It also didn't take long to get bored with the traditional quilt patterns, so I started creating my own. I spent about 3 years making baby quilts for the tons of babies in the family. One day, I came upon a purse pattern in one of my quilt magazines. I attempted to make it, but wasn't very successful. I thought there must be an easier way to put together a purse, so I started doing research on the internet. There are so many tutorials out there, so it was easy to pick up some tricks. Once again, I learned how to draw my own patterns so the finished product was the dimensions I desired. Through trial and error I figured out how to insert the zipper on my pouches. Once I started creating items that were of excellent quality, I looked for an outlet to sell my items and stumbled upon Etsy.


{{2. Where do you find inspiration to create your lovely etsy wares?}}
As far as what inspires me, it's not any one thing. I really like creating my own items, and I tend to spend time once or twice a week with paper and pencil working out dimensions for new items. Fabric has a lot to do with inspiring me. I love fabric. I love buying fabric. And I love using new fabrics for my items. I hope my customers like the variety of items and fabrics that I have available.

{{3. What brings you joy in your every day life?}}

Family is always number 1. I love sewing, and I love having a creative outlet, but I still try to balance family time with sewing time. Sewing is part of who I am, along with being a mother and wife. I am lucky that my husband and kids know this and allow me the time to sew.

Are you ready?!
