Guest Judge Feature: Delia Creates

To judge this month's Link-Up, we brought in a celebrity in the blogging world. She was also a contestant back in 2012 for Season 5. If you don't know her already, you should!

She also knows her way around florals , as you can clearly see below!


 Oh goodness look at her little one 5 years ago in that gorgeous dress!

Since we found out a little bit already about her here, I asked Delia some fun questions for today.


1. Who do you sew for?

I mostly sew for my daughter because she's my youngest and the most appreciative of mama made clothes ;). I also do some sewing for my two boys and myself. 


2. What is the best tip or trick you have learned?

That scotch tape is for more than just taping together patterns! I use it to hold buttons in place when I sew them on my machine. I use it to "pin" leather together sometimes, when I can't use actual pins. I put it on the bottom of my presser foot to keep it from sticking to vinyl or leather. I always keep a roll of it with my sewing supplies. 


3. Do you have a favorite material to sew with? If so, what?

I wouldn't say it's necessarily my favorite to *sew*, but my favorite fabric to wear and put my kids in, is knit. 


4. Where do you see your blog in 5 years?

Good question. As a blogger of seven years, I've witnessed first hand how much the blogging landscape has changed during that time. So, for that reason, I'd have to go with...no clue. ;) In 5 years, I would like to think I'm still working in a creative field. 


5. What projects are you working on currently?
I always seem to have a few too many WIP projects open at once. I am currently redecorating my daughter's room which includes a lot of furniture painting and pillow making at the moment. I've also got fun, easy summer craft projects in the works, as well as a sundress for me! 

6. If you could sew a garment for anyone in history, who would it be and for what occasion?
Honestly, I can't think of anyone I'd rather sew for than my family and the people I love. <3


7. What material have you not ever sewn with, but always wanted to?
Neoprene! 


8. What brands do you currently work with?
I consider myself creatively omnivorous, so I'm working with a variety of companies: Fabric.com, Silhouette, and Michaels. 


9. What current fashion trends do you like?
I really like the bell sleeve trend. It seems to be flattering on almost anyone of any age, and it's fairly simple to sew. I'm also digging the return of the 90's. I admit, at first I resisted it, but the nostalgia is winning me over. Bring on the overalls and chokers!


10. What is the most outrageous outfit/ most ambitious outfit have you ever sewn for one of your kids?

A suit for both of my boys is probably my most ambitious project. My first attempt at a suit had crooked welt pockets and a serious lack of interfacing, but I still love it because it made me brave. It became the measuring stick for trying new patterns and techniques. I would tell myself that if I could make a suit, then surely I could at least try anything. 
*************
