I love to make stuff. And drink coffee.

I've loved to draw and make things since I was tiny. Pencil, paper and modeling clay were my early loves and sewing came after. I enjoy coming up with new twists, designing clever details, and figuring out the best way to put things together. Small things make me especially happy!

Most of my sewing patterns begin as handmade gifts that I design for others. I love the process of pattern making; breaking projects down into logical steps with illustrations so that others can easily make their own. I take a lot of time with my patterns to make sure they are perfectly clear and accurate. My degree is in print design so I draw all my own diagrams digitally and take all my own photos. It makes my day to hear from crafters who say "I can't believe I made that. I love it!".

I fit my pattern designing in around my day job: home school mom to my two wonderful and zany daughters. I draw inspiration for my crafting from songs, books, folk tales and God's wondrous creation.

Thanks for coming to my shop! Go make something!

Additional policies and FAQs
If you are a home sewer and have a cottage industry personally making things with your own little hands and selling them to your friends, in a craft booth or personal online shop (read: no mass production), you can purchase my patterns for that purpose, with my blessing.

Go forth and make it a success! Make as many as you are personally capable of. Sew for your friends. Sew for your shop. Sew for craft fairs and bazaars. Sew up a storm! Of course there are terms. But not that many:

- A reminder that the copyright on my patterns still stands: That is, you may not copy, resell, share, distribute or publish (online or otherwise) any portion of any of my patterns without prior permission from me. Period. Basically anything that involves sharing any part of my patterns with anyone else is a no-no.

- Each sewer must purchase a pattern for themselves. If you have a friend who is interested in partnering up with you, or you are hosting a craft party, please refer each of them to my blog or shop to purchase their own pattern. Thank you! (Exceptions may be made in the case of charitable sewing, just be sure to check with me first!)

-Production is limited. To honor the 'no mass production' spirit, please limit your listings (or display in your booth) no more than twenty MmmCrafts items at a time. This means a total of twenty of any pattern combination, for instance:
8 Mikey Monkeys + 12 Christmas Ornaments = limit of 20.
If you are selling something as a set under one listing (like ornaments) that would count as one item.

- Include credit where it's due. Please list a credit for the pattern on each listing or on each hang tag for the item: Pattern by Larissa Holland, or something like that.

- Minor derivatives are ok, but even if you make changes in the way a pattern is made, please still give a credit to me for the pattern, along with a note that it is a variation.

- PLEASE NOTE that it is really really really NOT OK to use any of my photos, images, logos, badges, or graphics to promote your site or booth on signs, flyers, tags, headers, etc... Don't do it! Those images are copyrighted.

Judging from the number of requests I get, there are a lot of readers out there who don't have the time or inclination to sew for themselves and they would appreciate knowing where to find your MmmCrafts handmade items. Let's get you two together! Send me a link to your shop so I can place it on the Mmmakers page on my blog so folks will know where to find you and buy your MmmCrafts stuff.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

Sorry, I can't make any custom orders. I just don't have the time. If you invent a way to add more hours to the day, please let me know. :-). There is a list of independent crafters on my blog who make custom orders from my patterns. Feel free to contact them:

Questions about the Twelve Days Ornament Series?

You can find A LOT of great information on this resource page for my Twelve Days Ornament Series (including color guides and felt/floss bundles and kits):

Sizing details

I include sizing details in the individual pattern listings, but they may not be in the bundled listings. The average size for the Twelve Days Christmas ornaments is about 4 x 5 inches. It varies of course, because the shapes vary a good bit.

Wholesale availability

I do not offer wholesale printed patterns at this time. It’s on my to do list! I do offer 20% bulk discount for 10+ patterns to stores if you wish to offer classes. Just convo me with your store details to get started.

How do I give a pattern as a gift?

Because my patterns are downloads, and are not emailed, it’s best to give an Etsy gift card along with a link to my shop. That way your friend can choose a gift and download it from their own Etsy account (which is free and easy to create). Purchased patterns are backed up at Etsy for them and available anytime in case of computer crashes, lightning strikes, or toddlers with peanutbuttery hands. The links do not expire.

How do I find my download?

If you purchase either with your account or as a guest, Etsy sends a purchase receipt with links to your patterns to the email address you entered. You can use the email links to download your pattern.

If you purchased with your Etsy account, you can also always find your patterns under You > Purchases and Reviews. The links do not expire.

If you purchased as a guest, the email receipt is the ONLY way for you to access the patterns. I recommend you link your guest purchases to your Etsy account. You can follow the instructions included on this page:
