About Me

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.)

  1. hi. i’ve followed your ‘jackfruity’ blog off and on for some years now, since i found it when it was one of the very few uganda blogs in existence (i used to live in kampala myself). I admire your work.

    what is the font that you used for the header of this blog, ‘making things’? I really like its simplicity.

    nice modification of the adelle theme. More sober, subtle, understated. And i really like that font!

    all best,

    John burnett.

    • Hi John,

      Thanks for meandering over here! The font for the header image is Signerica, a favorite of mine. And thanks for your comments on the theme! I like Adelle, but I wanted it to be a little less…pink.
