Pellon®: Where do you find inspiration for your work?
Kelley Gilbert: I find inspiration for my work all around me. I love to find new uses for old materials as well.
P: What does your creative process entail?
KG: My creative process is a lot of trial and error. Once I get to a point I like, I write down details and take pictures so I don’t forget what I have done!
P: Why do you enjoy sewing/crafting/quilting?
KG: Sewing and crafting let me create for fun and function. I was a painter, but that changed to sewing when I had my first child and wanted to provide him with things made by me.
P: Do you create mainly for satisfaction, gifts, art or another reason?
KG: Mainly satisfaction, Second for gifts, Third for sale.
P: What tips or tricks learned through experience can you share?
KG: I sew through many layers using vinyl and laminates, a soft head mallet is a VITAL tool!
P: When and why did you start sewing/quilting/crafting?
KG: My mother and grandmother taught me tosew when I was young, and I made several bad projects. But, the skill set stuck!
P: What inspires you to start a project?
KG: A need. My projects usually start with a need. Generally for my children.
Most people have a tablet or e-reader that they keep with them or want to keep protected. Using laminated cottons and two Legacy stabilizers, this cozy is durable and water repellant. Dimensions listed are for the iPad. The pattern can be customized for any e-reader.
