I started sewing in 2014 shortly after I removed myself from a toxic relationship with the father of my youngest daughter. As with most things in life "everything" hit me at once after that. I had my first daughter at 16 years old so I had already been a single mother for quite a while at this point and now I found myself in the same situation, with two children. I was seriously overwhelmed and needed an escape, "aka" something to keep my mind focused.
So. I turned to sewing! It has been a whirlwind of learning and growing since then! Sewing gives me something to look forward to and helps me express my creative energy. My favorite part is that I will never "know it all". Sewing is one of those things that if we continue to immerse ourselves in we will always get something new in return. Let's just say I've made a new love story for myself, a story about evolving, loving myself and nurturing my craft.
My love for sewing led to my infatuation for pattern making which has brought me to this amazing place where I can share and store designs with you.
P.S. - I encourage you to learn and grow with this awesome sewing community, there are so many creative minds just like you, that love to connect and express their talents with the world!
I'll leave you with my favorite quote that really resonated with me during the toughest time in my life;
"Do what you can, where you are, with what you have". - Theodore Rosevelt
All my love,
