Featured Member Interview
How did you find CO+K and why did you join?
I stumbled upon CO+K casually few years ago, I don't remember how exactly but I do remember my awe seeing all those amazing projects. At that time I had no idea that you'd make all those thing with your own hands but looking and scrolling through the projects I felt so inspired that I had to try.
Few day later I went to buy my very first piece of felt.
What projects are you currently working on?
I've received a new phone as a Christmas gift. When I got it, the first thing I thought was: "YES, I MUST MAKE A NEW CASE 8D "

What does your craft space look like?
Err.. messy? It urgently needs a bit of organizing.
Unluckily I don't have a space especially designed for crafting, which is befuddling since my parent's home is huge! Right now I use my room and my desk to craft (I store my felt collection in a draw of my dresser, as you can see in the picture) but I'm considering an expansion.. mumble..
Which tool or craft supply do you use the most?
Colourful fabrics, scissors and a lot of threads.
What do you craft along to?
Lately I've re-watched The big bang theory while crafting but I've crafted along many TV series (Warehouse 13, Alias, Supernatural, Downton Abbey, ..). I also love listening to music while sewing. Rock n' Craft!
Elisa's Most Popular Projects
I really enjoy working with felt (as you all can see). I like to make accessories, pouches and cases. I especially like making plushies and embroider all those little details that make it special.
Elisa's Top Crafts
If you could learn one new craft or make anything, what would it be?
I'd love to learn how to scrapbook. I'm really bad at drawing and handling paper but I do love scrapbooked photo albums so I'd really like to learn how to make them.
Thank you very much again for this opportunity, happy crafting to everyone :D
Who are your crafting heroes?
There are a lot of craft goddess I admire. I've all Secret life of a bio nerd's old videos with her dress making and t-shirt updating. One of my most recent discoveries is Anna Evers' Plan B. Also lately I'm appreciating a lot of fellow Italian crafters.
