Easy-To-Follow Sewing Patterns for Cleverly Designed Stuffed Animals

I create unique patterns for stuffed animals from my home studio in Wellesley, Massachusetts. I design patterns for toys that you will love to sew. You'll use these patterns over and over again because they are easy to follow, cleverly designed, and fun to make. A handmade stuffed animal is the perfect baby shower or birthday gift.

Since 2005 I have shared my creations and ideas on design, technique and the online culture of craft through my blog (http://www.whileshenaps.com).

I have a master’s degree in education from Harvard and I taught middle school social studies in Mississippi and Massachusetts before becoming a textile artist and the mother of three girls. I enjoy teaching people to sew and sharing the joy of designing and making stuffed animals.

My first book, The Artful Bird: Feathered Friends To Make and Sew, was an ALA Booklist top ten craft book of 2011. My new book about soft toy design was published by Lark in May of 2013. I am also a licensed designer with Simplicity.
