Lisa McFee is keepitcrafty’s January’s featured crafter. Never thinking about crafting as a business, for McFee it was just a part-time thing.
McFee’s daughter owns a small home business making handmade pillowcase dresses, burp clothes, bibs and other items. Deciding to attend a craft show, but didn’t have enough merchandise to fill the booth, she invited Lisa along. “While I was helping, I could make a few bucks for myself. That’s how I got started.”
After seeing beaded flip-flops at a market in Dallas, costing $100 McFee thought, “I could make those.” Glad she did, she’s gotten a lot of compliments on them. She also makes Barbie tote bags, and sleeping bags.
Although she doesn’t consider herself a creative person, because she copied what she like, Lisa loves picking out different beads. No two pair of flip-flops are alike. She loves making the tote bags for little girls, and consider it her best work. “Sewing just makes me happy!”
