Hi, I’m Lara!
Hi everyone, I’m Lara! I am the blogger behind Handmade by Lara Liz. I stumbled upon sewing in the summer of 2016. Since then, I’ve been blow away by the community that exists in the sewing world and started Handmade by Lara Liz in November of 2016. Outside of sewing, I am a certified public accountant and live in Arlington, Virginia with my husband (and resident blog photographer) Nathan.
I am rather new to the crafting world. When I was in elementary school and middle school, I was the student that avoided art class at all cost! Much to my surprise, after I got married in 2015, I decided to take up knitting. After knitting for about a year, I decided to give sewing a try and I have never looked back.
Since picking up sewing, I have spent any spare moment sewing as I find such joy in the ability to make clothes that suit my style and needs! You will always find me gravitating towards feminine styles with floral prints and beautiful solids.
I am so excited to be joining the Cali Fabrics team and sharing my sewing projects with you!
