Mini Project Run and Play: Meet the Week 3 Designers

And just like that, we are on to WEEK 3 of the Mini Project Run and Play! this series is fast and fun. Don't blink or you might just miss it!
Today we get to know the next two designers a little better.
Hayley from Welcome to the Mouse House and Ari from Max California asked each other questions, and here is what they said:
Ari: Where do you get your inspiration from?  
Hayley: I don't have one particular place I get inspiration from, honestly.  Sometimes, inspiration strikes me at the oddest times like while watching a tv show, shopping or just from trying to solve a problem at hand. Some of my best ideas came on a whim.  

Ari: How would you describe your style? 
Hayley: I would have to say my style is free flowing.  In other words, I don't think I have a set style. ;). I love classic lines like a Peter Pan collar, but I also don't want to always make classic pieces. That would be boring to me. Long story short, I don't think I have a style that is any one description.  I love whimsical, classic, unique and memorable   

Ari: Why do you sew? 
Hayley: I have been sewing since I can remember (maybe 5 years old?). I sew because I love it.  I love the fact that I can take fabric and turn it into clothing or home decor or gifts.  It is always pretty cool to watch a flat piece of fabric turn into something 3 dimensional and then I love seeing the joy it brings others. Sometimes I sew because of necessity (like not finding curtains I like anywhere in my budget or making pants for my kid that has super skinny waist and nowhere sells his size) and other times I sew because I want to have a creative outlet.  I sew because it is simply part of my life.  


Hayley: Do your kids like that they have mommy-made clothing and do you think it will remain that way as they get older?
Ari: the kids love it so much. vin loves that I can make him literally anything he wants and Eddie is just stoked that she can see something on tv and ask me to make it for her. I think they will always appreciate that I sew for them, I tell them how their friends mum's can do other stuff but this is the thing that I can do (I can't bake ಥ‿ಥ) so it's special! 

Hayley: Do you get asked all the time to hem people's pants?  Just curious ;)  
Ari: Yes. ALL THE TIME aha. And curtains. And once to fix someone's fly of their jeans. I'm pretty good at saying no now though.

Hayley: Has your style always been the same or have you evolved over time?
Ari: It's definitely evolved, for me anyway (it's probably still weird to everyone else). I used to be very into rockabilly/punk/goth/grunge sort of stuff, whereas now I'm just ALL THE COLOURS and fun. I definitely have a lot of throwbacks to my "youth" though with things I sew the kids. I think consistently I've always been outside the box, square peg in the round hole you know? But I like that.

Hayley: What is your least favorite thing to sew?
Ari: Button up shirts. They look amazing and I love using all that amazing woven fabric, but I hate how tedious it is. It's just too much work. Its got to be something really inspiring to me to want to spend a long time on it and button up shirts don't do it for me hah. Doesn't stop me from seeing them though!

Thank you, Ladies! 
Come back tomorrow to see what they made.
