~Alittle about Caryl~
Hi! My name is Carly Sabins. I am a stay at home mother of two beautiful daughters, Tess& Riley. I have an awesome husband named Ben. We have been married for almost 11 years. I have three black Miniature Schnauzers, Hansel, Heidi, and Fritz. I live in the small town of Bryan, Ohio. Let me tell you how I got started sewing. My Grandmother taught me to sew when I was 7 years old. After I got married my husband bought me my first sewing machine. I began making my own curtains and slipcovers for my furniture. After my daughters were born I started making clothes for them. One of the first items I made were flower girl dresses for each of my daughters. I made them out of satin and since I could not read a traditional pattern I had to create my own pattern. It was pretty tricky! Let's just say through a few tears, (mine and my daughters), much blood, (mine), and a lot of sweat (did I mention it was my brothers wedding?), the dresses turned out great. After that I began to make quilts. My first quilt I made I gave to my Grandmother. That is when my fabric hoarding insanity began! If I liked it, I bought it! I still make quilts but I like to tinker with new projects. A few years ago I took a purse making class at a local fabric shop. It was so much fun! I love to combine different fabrics and textures. This led to me making purses for most of my family. In the Spring of 2007, I went purse shopping for something to match some of my new clothes and I could not find anything that I liked or was my style. So, I bought more fabric and made a few purses of my own. I showed them to my family and a few friends and they loved them! So...I made some more! Since I am a purse junkie now, I HAVE to keep making them! And since I cannot possibly carry all the ones that I design I have to share them with the world. I am having so much fun creating my own patterns and letting the fabric tell me which pattern it should be! I hope to keep creating purses as long as I can!
Now isn't that a great story thank you so much Carly for sharing with us. I also have to add I own one of her OOAK Hand Bags and just Love it!!
