Blue Jean Blankets Plus is a wonderful new shop on Etsy. It's the brain child of a mother/daughter team and features items made from old jeans, quilts and paintings!
Barb and Helen (Barb's mother...she does the sewing)are from Manitoba Canada, and actually only live about 20-30 minutes from me!! Will have to get together for coffee soon!! Barb also has a BLOG.
How did you decide on your shop name?
Well I wanted it to relate to my user name as well as the products that I am selling. Not that creative but it was available!
When did you start crafting?
Have been sewing for a lifetime but never thought to sell anything before!!
Are there other crafts you would like to try?
Hmmm...painting is fun! I painted a few oil landscapes during the past two years but I really want to try abstract painting...just need to find a class. I decided to list one of my least favorite paintings....LOL just to see what happens......I really like the other ones so they are not for sale! I might photograph one of them and print Christmas cards.
What or who inspires you?
I don't really know...in the last couple years or so I have found that I really like helping out other people rather than just doing my own thing.
Do you have a day job?
I work as an accountant at a concrete construction company that my husband and I own together with another couple.
What is the item in your shop you enjoyed making the most and why?
The strawberry jean blanket....because it is a fun print!
