Beutifully explained sewing patterns to enjoy

Hi, my name is Rachel. I live in Swansea with my husband, daughter, and completely crazy puppy dog.

I made and sold my first keepsakes back in 2017. I started with a well known pattern and made lots of bears and then started making other keepsake styles too.

Along the way I started to get a yearning to create my own pattern. I wanted a pattern that was quicker to sew up than the jointed bears I had been making. And I wanted a bear style that would look good made from shirts. And so the Charlie Bear sewing pattern was born.

I poured all that I knew about making keepsakes into the design of my bear pattern. And then reflected on the fact that I knew a lot of techniques that could help my pattern customers create more professional looking bears. So I added a blog post with photos of EVERY stage of the process.

After creating Charlie Bear I got the bug and have been slowly adding to my range ever since. And all of my patterns have the same format. A carefully explained pattern with the pattern pieces available here in my Etsy shop. And a blog post with a photo of every step and my experienced maker tips available on my blog at www.messystork.com/blog/

My big aim is to help my customers create beautiful keepsakes and soft toys with my patterns. I am always available to help you if you get stuck making one of my patterns. I might take a few hours to reply especially if I am in a different time zone to you! But I will always help.

I have also created a makers club for the lovely people who have bought my patterns you can find it at https://www.facebook.com/groups/messystorkmakersclub/

Thank you for reading, happy sewing,

Rachel xx
