“The thing I love about using the sewing machine as a drawing tool is that it uses all of my brain at one time. It uses the right side of my brain to figure out what to draw—then my left to make sure I don’t run over my finger with the needle.”

Kristin is a creative type who is also fascinated with “the child’s mind and unedited creativity,” so it seemed natural for her to make things for her most adoring audience, the zero to six-year-old set. With a background in fine art, Kristin approaches the overly saccharine world of kids’ things with a refreshing painter’s eye. She actually “draws” with her sewing machine, using thread to free form her whimsical plush animals. Yep, that will make you want to be a kid again.
