An Interview with Miss Pretty Perfect: http://www.etsy.com/shop/missprettyperfect

How did you get started?
With scraps from a local home decor fabric store that had a "bargain" room.

Where do you create?
In my home studio in Brooklyn, NY.  Sometimes a "makeshift" studio.

Tell us how you decided on your shop name.
It just hit me one morning as I sat on the side of the bed.  MissPrettyPerfect, because we're all Perfect in His sight!

Family consists of a husband and a very intelligent 5 year old son.

What inspires you to create your products?
I'm inspired by ideas of handbags in my head and of course, beautiful fabrics like embroidered silks and chenille.

How did you feel the first time someone actually paid money for something you had made?
I asked myself, "why?" and then immediately listed more for sell!

Where do you see yourself and your products in 10 years?
*deep breath*  Not really sure.  I just wanna make stuff and be able to support my hobby habit.

Any advice you would like to share with a newbie who may be reading this? 

You won't know until you try.  Be willing to invest in your gift by taking classes and really getting involved.  Learn All that there is to learn about what you love to do :)  And be confident!

Wow..The most common embroidery fabric we will come across is Aida. Aida is an even-weave fabric which means there are an equal number of threads vertically as well as horizontally. Aida is a 100% cotton fabric, and mostly used for Cross-stitch embroidery. So I would recommend starting with Aida fabric is good option...And the embroidery pattern in this beautiful bags are also up to the mark..........
