Tabitha makes beautiful coupon organizers! They are just like the ones I use 🙂 They are the perfect size to throw in your purse!
Her very first project was a purse back in 1982 🙂 She said that ever since then she has tried many different crafts, including stained glass, pottery, soaps, and jewelry! Art is her outlet. She started making felt bags and one day she was staring at her coupon organizer and an idea was born. She used her felt to change the look and the result was so cute. She knew she had a product that she could use and enjoy.
She gets her inspiration “everywhere” and it shows in her designs. She said the hardest thing is coming up with color combinations, but she tries not to second guess herself and, in my opinion, they all turn out great!
I usually come up with a concept and make 4 of those at a time. I like to vary the colors and sometimes the shapes as well. I take out all my gorgeous English felt, mix and match colors and play until I find something that fits my concept. I usually do my cutting and placement at night when little ones are sleeping. In the morning I sew between 4-8 covers. If I am really productive that day I will adhere them all down (during my son’s nap time), trim them to size, photograph them. Then I list them on my site later in the evening or thoughout the next day. Wow, sometimes I wonder how I keep up! I have around 100 listed right now and many more to come.
She also cooks, travels, and blogs! Her latest post is a thrift store find – and be sure to check out the stack of felt she got on May 1st!!!
