How did you get started in your chosen craft?
I have been sewing for 15 years. But I began to enjoy myself when I made my first rag doll for my children. I was surprised with the popularity of this doll! She was not perfect, but children liked her very much!
The magic for me then began. I discovered quilts and I liked recycling fabrics in order to fabricate colored blankets! One thing leading to another, the collection La ChiffonniÃ¨re was born! Quilts, rag dolls, plushes and other amusements completed it.
Why did you join the EcoEtsy Team?
I joined the team EcoEtsy because they advocate the values that are most important to me. I am happy to see that I am not the only one to create in an ecological way! I like sharing with the other members, they are fantastic.
Where do you get your ideas / inspiration?
The children and their youthful happiness inspire me enormously; the available material and my intuitions do the restâ€¦
Which piece is your current favourite?
The yarn wig is my favourite! Smiles and pleasures are guaranteed! The children are adorable with this on their heads; they prove to us that in life, the most important thing is to laugh!
What do you do when you are not crafting?
When I am not working, I enjoy nature and I spend time with my family.
What is the most eco-friendly purchase you have made?
Since I use only biodegradable products for the maintenance of the house, I am very happy!!!! I choose products made in Quebec. But I am also happy to use washable cloth pads for more than 2 years, they are so comfortable! You will find on Etsy a bunch of very attractive models! To try it is to adopt it!
