Interview with Jessica @ The Domestic Fruit Loop

1.Tell us a little about you and your blog.

I like funky clothing, remodeling projects and quirky craftiness. My blog is a reflection of all of this. My blog is new and I am still trying to be disciplined enough to write in it regularly.

2.How and when did you start crafting?

Oh man I remember making barbie clothes when I was little, I also made gifts for my family out of modeling clay. I took every art class I could and that got me into mosaicing, painting, drawing, and pottery. When I was older I wanted to learn to sew but for some reason sewing machines and I did not get along. So I taught myself how to sew by hand. In my early twenties I sewed an entire full length velvet renfaire skirt by hand. Last year I was finally ready to tackle the sewing machine again and with the help of the hubster I learned how. Then I saw these crazy Katwise coats and I just had to make one! So I got her tutorial and read that I needed a serger. Luckily a month after that my hubster found an awesome deal on a serger at woot and got it for me. Now I am a serger maniac.

3.How often do you craft?

I craft at least once a week, sometimes much much more. It really depends on the season and my mood.

4.Where do you get your inspiration?

I love pinterest and I like to find regular things and tweak them to fit my persona.

5.What is your favorite medium to work in?

Oh man, I love to knit and it’s super relaxing but I don’t know what my favorite is. I like to just flow with my projects.

6.What is your guilty pleasure?

Buying fabric, I have a crazy amount and I love it all. Almost every single piece has a plan for it.

7.What makes you smile?

My daughter and husband but also anything fun and crazy, also getting quiet time to read and drink a glass of wine.

8.What is your favorite thing to do (other than crafting)?

Read I am an avid reader and I like to read books on just about everything from crafting to parenting to fantasy novels.
