About

Hi, I'm Anthea! I'm a busy mother, wife, pattern designer and sewer among many other things!

My little Etsy shop here is where I sell the patterns to my creations. Most (but not all) my sewing patterns are for children's items and include sewing patterns for soft toys (softies), children's clothing, bags, accessories and more. I also love designing appliques and I have quite a large range of applique templates in my shop.

I've always been crafty and have been sewing since a young age when I used to make clothes for my barbie dolls and furnishings for my dolls house. I made a lot of my own clothes as a teenager and now I love to sew for my two kids.

When I first started selling online in 2008 I was making children's clothing. At the time I discovered that there are not many sewing patterns out…

I've always been crafty and have been sewing since a young age when I used to make clothes for my barbie dolls and furnishings for my dolls house. I made a lot of my own clothes as a teenager and now I love to sew for my two kids.

When I first started selling online in 2008 I was making children's clothing. At the time I discovered that there are not many sewing patterns out there that allow commercial use, so I began designing my own clothing. I soon discovered that the design aspect was what I loved doing most, not so much the repetitive sewing of the same items. This in turn led to turning my creations into patterns for other sewers to use and enjoy. I decided to allow others to sell their creations made from my patterns due to the shortage of patterns that allow this.

I love to see what fabric combinations others come up with when sewing one of my patterns and encourage you to share a photo of any of your creations on my Facebook page so that we can inspire each other!
