Hi there! My name is Jess Abbott, the Sewing Rabbit. Growing up, thanks to a childhood friend and a certain 80′s cartoon, my nickname was Jessica Rabbit. Little did I know that when I met my husband, my name would literally become Jessica R. Abbott, and the Sewing Rabbit was born.
Wife to an incredible man, and Mother to 3 young active and crazy kids. I am from New York, my husband is from California – and combined we have lived everywhere from Illinois, New York, California, Hawaii, Florida, Munich, France, and now Virginia. And before you ask, no we are not in the military. Just two people with a love for travel, and a belief in seeing new things and being where you are called to be.
A self-taught seamstress, I find my passion in the creativity of the art. I love to window shop, people watch, pinterest browse, magazine flip, and blog read, all in the name of inspiration. Sewing is cathartic for my soul. When I go for long periods without sewing, I start to walk around and mutter to myself. Its not pretty.
I try to put God first in all I do, including creating this blog. I believe Jesus is my personal savior, and thank Him for the many blessings in my life. Life can be crazy in our house, with 3 small kids running around and fabric flying. I don’t sit still – like ever, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
