Great fitting hat. Pattern pieces fit together perfectly.

Easy to follow instructions, bag turned out cute. Used canvas and cork for the bottom - just as the pattern states it’s best to use heavier fabrics for this bag. I tried a lighter cotton at first but it ‘rippled’ when attaching the interfacing. There is a nice tutorial on her website with pictures-google it, it helps!

Creative Sewing Projects to Make and Love

I design a collection of sewing patterns for crafts and accessories called Make New or Make Do™. Each pattern is designed to be made from either new fabrics or from repurposed materials.

I got my start on Etsy back in 2006 selling my Cupcake Pincushions made from recycled wool sweaters. Along the way I've written two books (Warm Fuzzies and Sewing Green) , appeared on the Martha Stewart Show, wholesaled and exhibited my work worldwide and taught many workshops in the US.

Today, in addition to my sewing pattern collection, I design print collections for organic fabrics. I've licensed my artwork with Riley Blake Fabrics as well as self produced fabrics printed on demand. I continue to teach crafting and sewing workshops both online and in person. Whether it's through workshops or my sewing patterns, I love to share my passion for making beautiful things.

I work out of my home studio in Maryland, where I live with my husband and two red-headed lego-maniac Boy Scout sons.
