I like to sew.
That's is the origin of everything.
The first time I used a sewing machine I was 5.
I can be very selfish, but in general I like to be for others, I feel my purpose in life is to please and please myself by doing it and that I should help other to give sense to my life.
I love to find the perfect gift for every personality, and I put great effort on it even if the person in not of my affection and I was raised to value handmade over industralized items.
In the other hand I like simple projects that can be completed in a few hours and made with natural but cheap materials and -if possible- reuse supplies.
Here is a napkin set for my father's elementary school teacher who is kind of a mother for him, since his died when he was very young. I love to use this kind of napkins, they have so many uses and save so many trees (I haven't buy paper napkins or tissue for years), but above that they are so soft an become softer with time, and also they are so pretty, they make you feel nourished, as if mama were taking care of you even when you are by yourself and I add a note in lace that says Made with love by Nahuatl (which is my name, an unusual one, Aztec, but that is subject of a different post, I guess).
When I get orders from my store I always like to add a little freebie, a mini purse, a crocheted hair clip, becuase I love to receive that when I purchase on Etsy.
Today I made a guitar strap for my little one, I love his face when it was finished.
And here he is, happy whit Los Fafulosos Cadillacs music, to bad the video is flurry.
