About

I love life. I have a wonderful husband and two beautiful children that are my joy. I love my Etsy shop for selling my patterns. You can find my dolls at http://shop.sewinthemoment.com/ and Instagram is where I share my creative journey best @sew_in_the_moment

I have been able to sew, since I was old enough to hold a needle. My mum, a sewing teacher, gave me access to all of the fabric and sewing supplies that a child could ever dream of.

I fell in love with the art of sock doll creating in 2008. As an Early Childhood Teacher, I can see the benefit of children having significant dolls in their lives. They bring comfort, joy and encourage play, whether it is; a friend to sleep with, a doll to role play with or a mobile to gaze in wonder at.

Sock Doll creating is what I do. I am passionate about it. I love the design process and spend countless hours developing new and exciting dolls. My dolls are individually crafted to have personality and character. They are made with the highest quality socks, lots of love, and attention to detail.

As teacher I am motivated to help others learn to make sock dolls. The desire to share my journey as a Sock Doll Creator inspired me to write patterns for others to be empowered to begin their sock making journeys. I have used my patterns to teach sock doll workshops with beginner crafters and children. As a visual person, I believe it just as important to see instructions, as read them. My patterns use photos to show each and every step. They have simple instructions that cater to beginners.

Gift giving is something I love to personalise. I love to sew or make something special for my family and friends.

Some of my favourite things include; socks, snowmen, biscotti, quilts and candles.
I enjoy collecting interesting common place things like; apples, jello moulds, scales, wooden ironing boards, wheel barrows and antique tins.
