Meet the Designers: Christina from Two Little Hooligans

Hi, I am Christina and I blog over at 2 little hooligans. I am a married, stay at home Momma to three little ones who is obsessed with all things crafty and homemade. My blog is where I share our lives in New Hampshire, home renovations, gardening, crafting, sewing and of course lots of pictures of the" kiddos".

I first learned how to sew in highschool, but it wasn't until after my second child was born three years ago that my love for sewing really grew. I started out making baby items and before I knew it my mind was thinking up new designs for just about anything I saw that was made out of fabric. For years I shyed away from making clothes, but thanks to all the amazing sewing blogs out there that inspire me daily, I finally gave it a try. And like them, I fell in love with it too. Within the past 6 months I have gone from only knowing how to make basic pillowcase and peasant dresses to making dresses with bodices and more complicated pieces. 

Yes, I still have so much to learn as far as the basic construction and techniques that go into making garments. But hopefully by competing in Project Run and Play I can better my skills and my designs. My designs are casual, comfortable and practical to wear. They always have a little bit of girly-ness in there without being over the top. Most of the fabrics and materials that I use were on sale or in the clearance section. I hardly ever pay full price. These kiddos of mine grow too fast and play too hard to invest a lot of money into their clothing. Plus, I want my kiddos to live and play in the clothes I make them. To me, there is nothing more rewarding then seeing them run around in one of the dresses I made them.

Thanks again Elizabeth and Liz for asking me to be part of Season 5. I am beyond honored and still in shock that I am competing. I have a lot to learn in a short period of time I just hope that I can make some garments that will wow all of well as my kiddos. See you all on the Runway!
