MissEnota (or Kristin!) from And Chips has a fun addition to our Ready,Set,Go! series up next (and she suggested the idea for the series on Facebook too!)… It’s so fun to look around on Kristin’s site, and to see how much she’s learned to sew this year! She makes really wonderful things like this, and she’s certainly not afraid to jump right in and learn something new. It’s inspiring…

Hi! I’m MissEnota from And Chips. I use a nom de guerre because my real name, Kristin, seems to be quite popular in the sewing/blogging world. I live in Minnesota with two fluffy cats and a bearded guy I like very much. I’m passionate about road trips, movies, toys, home brewing, riding my scooter, reading quirky fiction, cooking and hanging out at the lake with friends and family. From 1997 until 2007, I served in the Army and the Army National Guard. With them, I deployed to Bosnia Herzegovina and Iraq. Hooah! I’ve been a cook, a military intelligence analyst, and an unmanned aerial vehicle operator (flying drones) but now I am unemployed, working on my history BA and enjoying my time more than ever.

I just started sewing in January 2012 with a machine someone threw out on the curb. With one lesson from mom, I discovered Sew,Mama,Sew! and Pinterest and I’ve been in heaven ever since. This is my very first tutorial and for that matter, my very first pattern design. I really hope you all enjoy it.
