    • Artist/Author: Hyena In Petticoats, Adelaide, Australia.I am a twenty-something, bad mouthed bartender from South Australia. With an Art History degree under my belt, I am out to single handedly tackle the world armed with a sewing machine. Gin and Tonic in hand, I aim to create handmade and unique items that celebrate their imperfection and ooze creative freedom. My stuffed toys are available in my Etsy shop….. I use a Nikon D40 digital SLR with the kit lens.

      I’m always coming up with ideas for quilts that involve curves or otherwise un-patchworkable pieces. This it the best way I know to precisely attach shapes to one another without hand stitching it (which is also rewarding, just not so fast)
