About

One of a kind items from my second story sewing room

When my granddaughter received an American Girl Doll for Christmas two years ago, I knew I could make clothes for her to play with instead of paying the high prices currently in the stores. I have been a quilter for many years and have a collection of scraps, new and old, that were crying to be made into something fun for Allie's doll. Then I received my own Madame Alexander doll so I now had two models.

My family sat around trying to think of a name for my etsy shop when we landed on Second Story Stitches. Since my sewing/creating room is on the second story of our home, I use many "recycled" fabrics - sort of "second hand", and my items have a story behind them, the title seemed to say it all.

My main goal is to create items that can be used and played with. I use all of the quilts I've made, play dolls with Allie, and actually use the pillows on the sofa. My items are not meant to be put on a shelf or in a closet. However, I also love to create historical items for doll lovers and collectors, too!

I try to price everything for the wonderful people in my life!

Located on the second story of our home is my favorite spot, the sewing room. While I enjoy finding fun, new fabrics, my greatest joy comes from creating pieces from my second-hand fabrics and the never-ending supply from my scrap baskets. Most of my pieces have a story behind them. I have used my son's mickey mouse t-shirt, my girls' volleyball shirts, a piece from my granddaughter's dress, and vintage lace from a long ago wedding. Wherever the fabrics came from, I find myself reminiscing as I stitch along on doll clothes, work on quilts, bags, or crocheted pieces.

I hope you have fun making up your own stories as you play with the things from Second Story Stitches.
