Moo Crew Feature

Designs By Lynette is our featured shop this week!
To browse this shop, simply click any of the images below and enjoy!

1) Tell us about your work and what drew you to it!

My mom and grandma taught me how to sew when I was young. I sewed different things here and there while I was in high school ( mostly costumes for plays) and college (repairs and alterations) and then sewed my bridesmaids' dresses right after college. After that, I didn't really sew again until this last year.

2) What is most enjoyable about your work?

I love that it's become a creative outlet for me. Whenever I'm out, and I see some clothes, bags, or purses, I immediately start thinking of how I could recreate it.

3) What is your biggest challenge?

Finding the time to work. With three little kids, I have to work around them and their schedules.

Polka Dots and Pearls
Toddler Dress/Tunic

4) How are you inspired?

I'm inspired be anything I see whether it's an item in a store or a piece of fabric. I'm also inspired by the many creative blogs out there.

I enjoy spending time with my family. Right now, they're the most important thing in my life.

6) What is your most cherished handmade item?

I still have the Holly Hobby quilt that my mom and grandma made for me when I was five.

7) What could you never live without?
