For our first ever Second Saturday Giveaway, we are featuring Frankenstitch Productions by Steph Bills!
This is Steph and her daughter, Olive, in Steph's Dining Room/Workspace. I asked Steph to tell us about her workspace:
"At the moment my workplace is a transformed dining room. I usually only do the machine sewing in there, it's also good for stow away. I usually do the cutting, stuffing and hand sewing in front of the t.v. with a strong iced espresso drink in hand while jibber-jabbering my husband's brains out."
Above is another view of the cubbies in Steph's workspace. She also has a large cabinet to store all of her fabric.
You may have noticed that Steph has TWO sewing machines...well, actually, she has three! One is in the entryway to her apartment.
Steph actually has lots of little craft supply collections, including...
...and all sorts of odds and ends in glass jars!
Considering her many creative outlets, I had to ask Steph how she got into crafting:
But, Steph still makes super cute, clever and creative plushies! They live in baskets and totes in her dining room/workspace until they are sold at craft markets or on Etsy at Frankenstitch Productions.
Steph calls her creations "monstas" and I asked Steph how she came up with Frankenstitch Productions as her company name:
"I decided on Frankenstitch because it was at a time when I was hand sewing only and so many people told me they recognized my Frankenstein stitches from anywhere. So it was just fitting I guess."
Well, we at Flint Handmade think Steph's monster-making skills are already top notch...and we are excited to have one of her creations as our very first Second Saturday Giveaway!
Meet Daisy the Owl. According to Steph:
"Daisy brings the sun shine when she walks in the room, Daisy reps joy from others happiness. Daisy is a peacemaker and a healer. She's drawn to peoples pain and wants to help heal them and the world. Daisy is a wanderer seeings how she's on a mission, she may disappear on you, but know that Daisy will always love you."
