Hi! My name is Amber and I love to make things and to sew! I grew up watching my mom and grandma sew but didn’t do much myself.
Eventually, when I was pregnant with my first baby, I bought myself a sewing machine, pattern and some fabric and I started sewing!
It was a pretty frustrating experience,- sewing buttonholes the wrong way and pants with the crotch at the knee- but I kept at it. The seam ripper was a most excellent tool in those days! The prospect of finishing each project I started kept me going and I continued to improve.
I know that if I who was terrible at following instructions and reading patterns could learn to sew a variety of things on my own that you can too!
I love quick and easy to sew projects like bags and pillows and quilts. I’m also fascinated with learning new techniques and creating patterns. So as I continue to learn to sew all sorts of things, I will share my processes with you.
I want you to enjoy sewing and creating your own things as much as I do! Imagine creating your own purse exactly how you want it! Even clothing and simple gifts for friends and family.
Find patterns and instructions here for sewing all sorts of things- quilts, pillows, bags, dolls, pouches, keychains and more.
I also have a few things in the shop in case you don’t want to wait to make something yourself.
