1. What is your shop name?

2. How did you first get started in your craft?  There has been always a sewing machine in my house, my mom and grandma made me my clothes, and my dolls' clothes... and by the age of 12, I started feeling envious of them, got a yard of fabric, and tried to do what they, with so much fluency, did.

3. What inspires you?  Everything, a film, a flower, a forgotten piece of fabric in the drawer, something I've seen on TV or in a magazine...

4. What are your favorite color combinations?  My favourite colour combination is turquoise and ruby red, it's shocking and reminds me of the "Wizard of Oz", but I also love emerald green with silver grey (that combination is much more for special events).

5. What is your favorite item from your shop?  My headbands, I do love each of them, I make them one by one, choosing carefully the patterns, buttons, and bows, just for a perfect combination. I have lots of them for me, because I think they improve any outfit.

6. If you had to use three words to describe yourself, what would it be?  Crafty, active and creative.

7. What superpower would you most like to have?
To control time, stop it, rewind it....

8. What is the first thing you remember creating? 
The first thing was this skirt
I made it when I was 14 years old, and I remember I put the fabric on me and made two pleats on the front, and two pleats on the back, to adjust it. Some ribbon, a zipper, and DONE!

Blue and brown cassette HEADBAND
9. If you could choose any era/decade to live in, when would that be? Why?  The 60's in the US, (in Spain, the 60's came in mid 70's), because I love the clothes, the music, the spirit, rock n' roll way of living, the furniture and architecture... almost everything.

10. Where can we find you? (website, blog, etc.)
This is my website
my blog (sorry, in Spanish):
and my personal flickr:
