What a darling pillow pattern with a lamb. Two granddaughters each have a lamb as their favorite stuffie, so the pillows will go over well. I love the fabrics that were used. Easy to follow patterns without words. This seller has an excellent way to show how to do something without words.
Hello and welcome to my Etsy shop – I’m glad you’re here!
A little bit about me: I’m from a small village near Frankfurt, Germany where I live together with my family. As you can probably tell, I have a great passion for beautiful fabrics and everything sewing related! As a freelance designer I create fabric collections for the quilting and home sewing industry as well as quilt and sewing patterns and I teach quilting classes.
It all started with a handmade gift for a newborn baby: a little elephant with crackle ears and a rattle in it’s belly. Gradually, the creation of other toys, cushions and baby blankets built the foundation for a whole collection. During parental leave I founded my label ellis & higgs and started producing and selling handmade toys and accessoires. In 2014 I opened a sweet shop and studio in our courtyard which I ran for 2 years. Today it serves as a show room and second studio space – I decided to quit the labor-intensive production of custom made items and instead focus on my design work.
Creating fabric designs for the quilting industry was a long-held dream and after taking my first steps on Spoonflower I sent my portfolio to one of the big companies. That was in 2014 – my fourth fabric collection Mon Beau Jardin for Riley Blake Designs / Penny Rose Fabrics shipped to stores in Summer 2018!
At the same time I started designing quilt patterns to highlight my fabric collections. My very first quilt pattern Sugar Candies is still one of my favorites!
Today you can choose from more than 90 different quilt and sewing patterns in my Etsy shop, starting from quilts in various sizes to pillows and accessoires. I’m also adding fun and easy to make picture quilt blocks to the new quilt block category on a regular basis. These single blocks come in two different sizes and can be incorporated into lots of different seasonal quilting projects!
Teaching my profession is something I very much enjoy! I’m currently planning my schedule for the upcoming year – and I’m especially looking forward to the classes I will be teaching at the Nadelwelt fair in Karlsruhe!
It has been an amazing journey from the day I made that little elephant and I’d like to thank each and all of you who have been encouraging and inspiring me along the way!
