Hi there! My name is Nani...also known as the "Victorious Vixen." I live in Southern California & am self-taught in most things thanks to my local libraries, blog stalking & the wealth of information on the internet. I began sewing "seriously" in 2008 while staying home with my 2 girls. I wanted to be able to support my new habit & opened my Etsy shop featuring custom quilted wallets, handbags and other sewn goodies.
This year I began my journey into mixed media & art quilts. My dad was infected with Lyme disease 3 years ago while on a fishing trip to Mammoth, California & life has not been the same since. This has compelled me to start the Victorious For Lyme: Art Quilt Project, a series of collaged pictures that are sewn & quilted together from Lyme patients around the world in an effort to spread Lyme awareness.
One of my recent craftivism projects was the Revamped T-shirt Dress Tutorial. Check it out & make your own!
I'm pretty green to making clothing, but very excited to create more Upcycled creations...my wardrobe could use the facelift and I can feel good about doing something to help the environment at the same time. I'm in the mix with a 2 month pledge and will be updating you with all my funky creations on my blog:http://www.VictoriousVixen.com
