Rachel Le Grand is amazing. Her work is diverse, but she clearly imprints her personal style on everything she does. How? With a well defined color palette, a love of vintage, and stunning photography.

One Project You Are Particularly Proud Of
1. My craft room. It was a fun challenge to work with this space. I ended up finding the perfect shelf that fit inside the closet with a removable desk, too! A sliding drawer under the desk store my laptop, so I can have a clear desk for crafting. There’s a 12 inch by 12 inch space to the left just inside the closet where I hung shoe storage to store my yarn stash. I repurposed jars of all shapes & sizes to store my many different craft goodies. I sewed a tablecloth for my sewing table. I took an ugly old chandelier & painted it pink & hung it up in a corner. I made tissue paper pompoms & hung those up, as well.

Two Mistakes You’ve Made in the Past
1. The first time I tried to sew on bias tape to arm holes & a neckline, it didn’t work out at all, so that project was completely abandoned.
2. When I tried using fabric spray paint on brown polyester (you’re suppose to use it on light colored cotton), it was a hat, so I ended up covering it with fabric instead.
Three Things That Make Your Work Unique
1. Repurposing.
2. Using vintage materials.
