Carley Biblin has spent a good portion of her life in Coastal California crafting and creating. Carley learned the basics of sewing from her mom when she was a kid, but it wasn’t until her then-fiancé gave her a used sewing machine for Christmas that she picked up sewing as a regular hobby. Since then she has made it a goal to put her own spin on everything she makes; she also aspires to design her own sewing patterns. Carley posts sewing tutorials and other fun stuff on her blog Making It Up as I Sew Along. You can get behind the scenes looks at her life and projects via Twitter and Instagram.
