This pattern offer easy to follow instructions. I modified the pattern adding 2" making it 24" instead of 22" ( I wear a large Afro.) I made a poly satin sleep cap and shower cap. All 3 caps turned out beautiful. Monica

About

Idea burst in Arizona, Fruition in California

As a child born in the 80's...we really didn't have any classes in home economics. Therefore, we didn't receive a lesson on how to sew. Of course we could play around in high school on our mothers machine but most of us and completely bailed on the idea of learning how to sew until after college.

The story starts here: I liked the idea of making my own clothes and accessories but the part I hated the most was trying to read complicated patterns.

Seriously!?! I don't wear glasses but I felt like I had to get my magnifying glass out to read the instructions and even then would be completely overwhelmed with the rocket-scientist-looking instructions. Thus...completely turning me off of sewing.

I actually ended up learning the basics from my grandmother. We started off small; pillows, aprons, dog beds, and bicycle basket liners. I hated reading pattern instructions so much I started making things up along the way instead. My Nuna even taught me how to create my own pattern shapes based on the outcome of the project.

I write sewing patterns for people who want to have fun during the process. Let's be real, it's usually cheaper to buy whatever we want from a store or online these days than it is to buy a pattern, fabric, materials and not to mention a sewing machine. But, if you are like me you constantly look at the craftsmanship of those store bought items and think "I could make that, and it would be of better quality."

Lauren Kelly Designs are just that, easily written, colorful, simplistic....back to the basics AND not your grandmothers sewing pattern. We are changing the game, evolving with the times and will entice the next generations to come to continue this forgotten legacy that was taught to the people who came before us.
