Featured Artist week 3

It's Monday again and time to feature a new artist/crafter/diyer/what-have-you...
Today I'll be featuring Staticwhite. Please check out her shop and show her some love.

What do you create?


Scrap Bats™ (adorable bat dolls), ooak teddy bears (ex: pirate, fairy, angel...), fabric art pillows, fabric portraits, bloomers, mini tricorn hats, costuming and anything else that strikes my fancy!



What made you start?


My great grandmother and grandmother were both seamstress. My grandmother had a cutting table, patterns, forms, industrial Singers, etc all in her basement. Everything a forever curious young child might find fascinating. To keep me from sewing my hands together she gladly taught me the basics.

Describe your craft room/area in three words or less.

Semi-organized madness.

Is crafting your full time job?


For now, yes. Let's hope it continues that way!

Any crafts you would like to learn or are currently learning?

I'd like to learn sashiko (a type of Japanese embroidery) and fabric folding techniques among many many other things.

What is your favorite material(s)?

Brocade, silk, striped cotton



Are you a self taught crafter or have you taken some classes?


I was an Art major in HS, took college jewelry and fashion design related courses but a large percentage of what I do now is self taught.

Apples or oranges?

Apples please! I'm allergic to oranges.

What do you listen to when you are crafting?

Depends on my mood. Anything from Fleming&John to Tricky to Dresden Dolls to Fear Factory. I have eclectic tastes and a huge music collection.

Are you a night owl?

Absolutely. I'm usually not tired until around when the sun is coming up.



How many people live in your home town/current town?


Hometown: 8+ mil. Current: 600+k.
