This young mother, who has an 8-year-old daughter, said she would take the opportunity to be an embroider of her own someday, as a way to help with her child’s bills.
“I’ve been sewing for about two years, and I have some money in my bank account, so I figured if I could get a job, maybe I could make some money,” she told the Associated Press.
“But I don’t know if I can afford it.
I’m trying to keep it under $500 per month.”
It’s a hobby she’s been playing with for a while, but she said she hasn’t been able to make enough to afford her bills.
The 23-year old is trying to turn her love of embroiderying into a career, but is facing some challenges.
“My daughter has been trying to get her a sewing book, so that she can start sewing and learn the craft, but it’s really hard,” she said.
“If I wanted to be sewing professionally, I could do it, but I can’t afford it.”
This woman was inspired to become an embroidered model after a friend told her about an online class, which offered lessons in the process.
She decided to start her own studio, and hopes to eventually have full-time embroideries for the money she earns.
