My name is Nina and I am the person behind Nina Makes. I am a Dutch born Kiwi, part time Teacher Aide and Mum of two. Hannah aged 8 years and Harry aged 6 years…no both having ‘H’ names wasn’t specially planned but is coming in handy when naming clothing that can be handed down! I love to sew, write blog posts and craft of just about any kind. Especially trying out new things. I have been blogging here at Nina Makes since June 2015. In that time I’ve created quite a stack of tutorials and a few pattern reviews too.
This is my little family having our first ever family photo shoot…I love these ‘real’ shots! Of course it’s at the beach…where else when you have that kind of beauty so close to home. We live on the mostly sunny East Coast of the North Island of New Zealand, I love it here. A little isolated for sure, with a rather sad lack of fabric shops but that gets the upcycling ideas flowing.
I hope you enjoy your visit to Nina Makes, I love getting feedback and comments so fire away!
