Hot sidewalk beneath my feet
Cheap wine sloshes and stains my favorite coffee cup Hot sidewalk beneath my feet, sticky summer air envelopes me like an unwanted embrace
Confidence found in creation.
I remember holding my mom’s little sewing kit in my lap while examining the supplies inside as if they were hidden treasures. My mom tells me I was seven years old when I first learned how to thread a needle, and practiced hand stitches on the scrap fabric that was tucked away inside the little wicker basket. She still has it today, and nearly thirty years later I still marvel at the antique kit. I think that’s the start of my love affair with sewing and crafting. One of my first projects was a messenger bag that I created from a pair of blue and white floral printed, denim Guess shorts that belonged to my big sister. I cut open the seams, and hand stitched the legs together. I fashioned a strap to wear it cross body, and voila! My sister wasn’t too happy with me, but I loved the repurposed shorts turned into a school bag. I carried it to school that year, utilizing the short’s pockets for pens and pencils. It was perfect for the time as messenger bags were all the rave, but expensive, so I made my very own!
