Twirling Betty

Get crafty with Christen from Twirling Betty!

Melbourne, Australia
I never really know what to say for this. My profession is law but my current occupation and true love is designing for and blogging as twirling betty while I’m home with my kidlets. And, frankly I’ve never been so occupied since I had children!

What are your hobbies?

Cooking, foreign languages (fascinated by all but focus mainly on Italian and Indonesian),writing, travel

What are your favorite crafts and what's your craft space like?

Fabric, jewellery and food.

What do you craft along to?

Italian radio and CraftyPod podcasts.

What was the first project you ever made?

Probably as a kid, an horrific ceramic ashtray for my parents (who didn’t smoke) but in my adult crafty life it was a black and white polka dot (of course) Hooter Hider: a cover-up ostensibly for breastfeeding in public. Thing was, I had no problems with letting one of the gals hang out but really needed something to cover my post-natal tummy – which it did. Brilliantly.

What are your favorite items to make?

Changeable. Whatever is inspiring me and working at the time.
