Ida De La Rosa Ellis

Ida has 40+ years of experience as a seamstress; I am a "Fabric Engineer". 

 

I loves to prototype one of a kind pieces. 

 

Teaching is another passion of mine and I also enjoys DIY projects.  I can't take it with me when I die, so I need to pass it on to whoever wants to learn.

 

Crotchet, knitting, beading, smocking, quilting & T-shirt quilting, hand sewing, Tye Dyeing, pattern making and embroidery are a part of my talents. 

Because of my degree in fine arts, I use my AutoCad system to create patterns.

 

My sites are De La Rosa Designs, Ida May Stitching, Loops Crafting Re-Looped Designs, DLR Patterns, Sew I Made This and Sew I Made That. 

I love to video blog, showing what to do with your sewing machine or fabric.

Always wanting to learn new things, I have learned polymer clay, ceramics, batiking, shibori dyeing this past summer.

I am also a Girl Scout with 35 years of experience with Girl Scouts of Southwest Texas.  I love teaching all Girl Scouts how to do anything they want to learn.

I have won many awards for fashion, fiber arts and even for Girl Scouting.
