I only just discovered my love for fabrics and sewing about 3 years ago when my husband (pictured above with me on our wedding day) bought me my first Singer Sewing Machine for Christmas.
I have been surrounded by crafty people since birth. My mom used to sew her own clothes and loved making dresses and costumes for me and my siblings throughout my childhood. I have even seen my grandma’s apparel design sketches from when she attended art school in her twenties.
My first projects included a custom-fit sewing machine cover and a reversible bib for my niece. That progressed into such home decor projects as place mats, napkins, curtains, pillows, coasters, etc. From there I moved almost immediately to apparel construction, making skirts, tops, pjs, dresses, you name it. I never much bothered with patterns, finding it much easier to trace an item of clothing I already knew I loved and begin constructing from there. I later found out this is the same technique my mom picked up in high school; like mother like daughter I suppose!
My newest love is quilting, and I am slowly joining the ranks of those who have far too much fabric to know what to do with it all. But, I love it!
For those who didn’t get the pun on my blog name, it came from a wonderfully cheesy sign that used to hang above my in-laws entry way. I married my best friend, Levi Seitz, and became a Seitz (pronounced “Sights”) myself and decided that this cheesy mantra was a great way to invite you all in to see my creations. So, welcome to my blog space and please, Come and See the Seitz!
