welcome to my little home of
hello, im hannah !
I am Hannah! The maker of these sparkly tinsel creations.
Ever since I was in school, my mind would constantly be creating what I could for wearable artworks, if it was a dress made from single use plastic bags, or cutting up canvas artworks to turn into bags, I would give what was in my brain a go - some worked some failed.
My grandma and aunties are all amazing sewing talents - I have always been fascinated about how they could turn lengths of fabric into clothes or curtains.
So the determination grew on me in the last few years, I found my trusty sewing machine on Gumtree, begged my housemate to collect it for me after she had finished work. I got straight onto whatever I could possibly teach myself to make. I think the first thing is that our living room got all new cushions. Pretty sure the noise of my sewing machine drove my roommates mental whilst they were trying to watch tv!
Mix that with my love of sparkle, glitter and all things in between - I made my first jacket with a lot of experimentation, I used an old mans t-shirt I found at an op-shop and just made a big multi-coloured beast! (if you check insta - you can see the fab model himself)
From that I kept experimenting... then a friend was off to Taylor Swift so I begged her to wear one in the Brisbane summer heat to her concert - no better place to wear a sparkly tinsel jacket really!
From there my self taught sewing grew better, my technique increased and I've only grown for the best!
I am passionate about up-cycling clothes I find at op-shops etc so if the inside of your jacket is patterned its because its had a past life and now has a new one with you!
Welcome to this journey, I'm glad you are apart of it,
I spend countless hours on each piece and definitely do a happy dance at the end of each completion.
