My name is Rebekah. I like to make things—usually out of fabric or yarn, but also sometimes out of paper, flour, wood, or code.
This blog is the outgrowth of an earlier post on my main blog about re-evaluating my list of life goals:
[Lately] I’ve been itching to make more things—to write more (and better!) code, to cook, to blog, to hand-stamp thank you cards, to sew, to make things out of clay. Some of these are things I already do well; some are things I haven’t done since I was a kid.
After I wrote that post, I bought a sewing machine and got started, by which I mean that I created a Pinterest board full of envy-inspiring quilts and sewing tutorials and began adding a ton of sewing blogs to my RSS reader. And then I actually started sewing—a bright yellow quilted potholder that is wonky but still awesome because I MADE IT. WITH MY HANDS (…and sewing machine).
I took photos of said potholder to send to my mom, who taught me how to sew when I was a kid, and decided that I wanted to start documenting this process of making things. Though I’ll probably talk the most about various sewing projects, other projects (both physical and digital) may creep onto the blog here and there.
(Still curious? I also blog about other things at rebekahheacock.org.)
