About me

Hello! I'm Melissa. :)

I've been creating art for as long as I can remember, but I've only been sewing for dolls since my first BJD arrived in January 2008.
I remember sewing random things when I was rather young. Under the supervision of my grandmother I made the standard square pillows. I even designed and sewed a stuffed cat once.

It is horrible.

And yet, I still keep it. I still have the first outfit I made for my first doll too.
It's rather inspiring to be able to look back and see how far I've come from something I found absolutely infuriating to something that I now realize has been a lifelong passion.

I am entirely self-taught and sew exclusively by hand without a sewing machine, so it often takes a bit longer than average for me to figure new things out, but it's all worth it in the end.

If you have any questions or suggestions please feel free to email me at: melissa@inessencecreations.com.
