Along the way, I realized that I had something special when it came to putting fabrics together and I loved the adorable creations I was making.
I began selling clothing online with the encouragement of family and friends. I learned new and better ways to make them each day and continued to grow my business. Once my clothing business became very successful, ten years later, I wanted to give back. I decided that a great way would be to offer sewing patterns for things I sold in my boutique for those who couldn't afford them, but would still love their children to be able to wear it. To me, this was giving back to where it all began for me.
From there I was hooked. Designing sewing patterns was so fun and I found that the more I worked at learning how to draft patterns, the better I became at it. I have been designing patterns for over six years now. For now, there is nothing I love more.
I am successful, happy, and I love getting to work everyday. My husband who used to work long hours, is now home full time with us. He helps me with the business and gets to be the dad to our four children the he wants to be. This was the beginning of a huge dream we had! We sold our house in 2016 and set off with our four kids to travel. It was an amazing experience and I am so grateful for every moment.
Thank you to my mother for repeatedly telling me I was selling myself short and that I had a gift to offer the world, to my grandmother for always doing art projects with me and instilling the love of music and crafting deep within me, my husband for his constant support of my dreams and encouraging me to see beyond what I see as possible, and ALL of you who make what I do possible by supporting my work.
I am truly honored to be able to share my designs with the world and my sincere hope is that my patterns and designs help you to create your own story to share with others.
