Where it came from

I am a professional seamstress and pattern designer specializing in vintage inspired fashions, formal wear, fancy girls dress-up dresses, and accessories. My favorite items to make are classic vintage inspired designs and frilly girls dresses. I love the creativity and freedom of expression designing allows, and am blessed to have an outlet to express it.

I have recently started working with a pattern company which specializes in quilt patterns. This has opened up a whole new door for me creatively, and really inspired some of my newer designs. You will see more quilt inspired designs coming soon!

Welcome to Creative Baggage home of Sew Kids kits. Creative Baggage was founded on the idea that creativity is good for the soul, the heart and the mind. Creativity is the purest form of self expression, and through creativity, we connect with the core of who we are and allow ourselves to grow.

We developed our Sew Kids kits with the intention of encouraging self-expressive creativity in children. As a mother and seamstress, I was disappointed to see a huge lack of quality sewing related kits for children, especially boys. The kits that existed on the market were either pink with a photo of a little girl on the packaging, or were too challenging for most little children. We thought there had to be a better way, and with this vision Sew Kids was born.

Sew Kids are sewing kits for BOYS and GIRLS ages 6+, all kits include an age appropriate sewing project using Eco friendly felt made from recycled plastic bottles and featuring pre-punched holes. You will also find a kid friendly needle, and easy-to-read photo instructions. Most kids will be able to independently create their kit without the assistance of an adult, which encourages them and rewards independence. We've also included an assortment of embellishments to allow the kids to decorate their project and express themselves freely. Embellishments vary from kit to kit.

Sew Kids kits are great for groups too! We offer Birthday kits and kits for group activities such as scout meetings, classroom activities, and day camp groups.

Lets encourage our children to put the tablets down, walk away from the screen, and unleash their creativity with Sew Kids kits!
