hello friends! my name is trudy and this is my blog where i show off things i make. i am self-taught, thanks to the internet and my apparent inherent skill with all things crafty.
i have been sewing seriously since around 2008, although my interest was sparked in middle school home-ec. i mainly make garments and costumes, but i’ve been known to create various accessories, home décor items, and weird stuffed monsters.
i have been crocheting since 2010, after picking up a book on amigurumi and just diving right in. i still make amigurumi, as well as scarves and cowls, mismatched gloves, and half-finished socks.
my newest obsession is cross stitching, after seeing all the lovely profane and inappropriate things immortalised in this delicate, flowery craft.
i also dabble in knitting, jewellery making, embroidery, cut paper crafts, and anything involving a hot glue gun.
like most 20-somethings, i’m not sure what i want to do with my life. currently i work as a receptionist at a retirement home, i am halfway through a bfa in photography, and i’d love to go into fashion design. we’ll see where life takes me.
