A little about me: I’m Lindy, and I’m like many of you: I like to sew, knit, crochet— pretty much anything to have the kinds of beautiful, unique clothes I crave. I’ve been making clothes since I was 5 or 6 years old, teaching myself to knit and sew. There is something to be said for learning the hard way (trial and error), but why not benefit from not only my past experiences, but also from the projects I’m currently working on? I’ll be showing you how I create my own clothes, whether I’m sewing a garment from scratch, altering or recycling an existing item, or simply re-thinking how I use a particular garment in an outfit.
You say you don’t sew or knit, and truth be told, you have no interest whatsoever in any kind of -cycling? I’ll bet you do some shopping! So you can still have fun (and learn a thing or two) following my adventures, because I’m including my ideas for smart clothes shopping, color palettes, and wardrobe creation too.
A little about my work: So far, my work combines photography, color, and knitting, thusly: I do a lot of photography work, including creating montages from my photos, then I create color palettes inspired by my photo/graphic designs, which translate into my line of unique yarns and knitwear patterns. Uniting all this diversity is my writing, primarily how-tos based on my own personal projects and insights thereof.
Hire me! I’m currently writing web-content articles, as well as more magazine articles, and I’d welcome more writing opportunities. Specifically (and ideally), I’d love to work with you on project tutorials, especially involving making over/upcycling clothes; see my Makeover Monday posts here on CYC for examples.
