Desire to Inspire July Challenger - Meet Amanda Wallace, talented teen.

Amanda Wallace





This month's challenger is a sewing newbie! She had such an earnest desire that of course we wanted her to be inspired!  Please comment below on her projects for this month's challenge to encourage her sewing journey! 


Meet Amanda Wallace

Hi! My name is Amanda Wallace and I am so excited to take part in this challenge! I have been sewing for a year now and I love it. I started sewing because I wanted to learn something new and sewing is a very useful skill to have. For the short time I have been sewing I have made a few projects that I am very proud of. I made a Yankees themed quilt for my dad, a cat themed quilt for myself, embroidered T-shirts for my two young cousins, and pull-string bags, that I loaded with goodies, for each of my teachers as a 'thank you' gift. I highly encourage other teens to join me in learning the art of sewing and also experienced sewists to teach the younger generation. It is extremely useful and a great experience.

Amanda, you are an amazing sewer and crafter. I hope you will always enjoy sewing as your happy place. Over the years it certainly became mine. And while I have had some frustrating days with certain projects, I still continue sewing, quilting, crafting for the joy I find in it. Your tuffet is just the best! Enjoy!
