Featured Member Interview

How did you find CO+K and why did you join?

I don't remember how I first stumbled upon this site, but it was quite a few years ago. Whenever I looked for craft projects online, I often ended up on Cut Out + Keep. I got a lot of inspiration from this site, so I eventually created an account to share my ideas and contribute to this amazing community!

What projects are you currently working on?

Clothing and knitting projects. I have half-finished scarves, corsets, dresses, bags, and more just piling up everywhere in my room. I begin many new crafts on a whim because ideas come so randomly. The problem is finishing them...

What does your craft space look like?

My craft space consists of my desk and a big storage box. Needles, thread, scissors, and tacky glue are always within reach. I don't have much because I am constantly making new things out of old things. And of course, everything revolves around my sewing machine.

Which tool or craft supply do you use the most?

Sewing machine. I am quite an amateur, actually... I only know how to use two stitches on my machine! But I can do a lot with just that.

What do you craft along to?

Nothing really, I do enjoy the silence. I usually get so focused on my crafting that I don't pay attention to anything else.

Favorite Craft

Sewing! I LOVE to reconstruct clothes. I am obsessed with everything DIY fashion related... most of the clothes I own have been refashioned somehow.

Judy's Top Crafts

If you could learn one new craft or make anything, what would it be?

I have always wanted to try lacemaking. It looks beautiful and the effort put into it definitely seems worth it.

Who are your crafting heroes?

The crafting community! But specifically, Secretlifeofabionerd, Violet LeBeaux, and Himehood are some of my biggest inspirations. They are so creative, unique, and adorable.
