Etsy Interview and Giveaway - Judy from Toastory

Todays' Etsy artist interview is with Judy from Toastory. Grab a coffee and take some time to read on about her and her shop. Judy is also sponsoring a lovely giveaway so don't forget to enter.

a little background about yourself
I live in San Francisco, California. I am a fashion design student and studying in Academy of Art University. And I am now entering the last year of school.

Khaki Zipper Bow Brooch


Why you love what you do
With all my creations, I started with hand-stitching when I was little. I remember the first bag I made is a small little jeans handbag with a little patchwork. Soon thereafter, I have learned the most practical skills I ever felt, which was sewing.
I am passionate of sewing because I believe there are many possibilities to do with playing different textures of fabrics.

What inspires you
My inspiration came from everywhere of my life, such as visual objects, garment components. I love deconstructed pieces, and apply to accessories, then try to make them wearable.
