About

I have two little girls and was motivated to teach myself to sew by my admiration for boutique-style clothing. I started sewing for them and then began sewing for myself, starting with a shoulder bag. I never really intended to get into pattern design, but the more I sewed bags and clothing, the more I fun it was to see the various flat shapes of fabric come together to make something more than the sum of it’s parts. I tried my hand at bag design and it was a natural progression for me to start making patterns. Now I have most recently begun to offer my own line of bag and clothing patterns so that you too can feel the rush of sewing something for yourself or someone you love. I can’t stop sketching and am truly enjoying sharing my designs with others.
