I am a plush pattern designer, craft book author, and sewing teacher. I design patterns for stuffed animals from my home studio in Wellesley, Massachusetts. Sewing dolls and toys is my passion! I strive to make my patterns easy to follow by including step-by-step photos all along the way and writing clearly. My toys are clever and fun to sew. I think you're going to love making them! You are welcome to sell the toys made from my patterns!
Since 2005 I've been sharing my ideas on design, technique and the culture of craft through my blog (whileshenaps.typepad.com). I have a master's degree in education from Harvard and taught middle school social studies in Mississippi and Massachusetts before becoming a textile artist and the mother of three girls.
My daughters, now age 8, 6, and 18 months, are the happy recipients of all of her prototypes!
My first book, The Artful Bird: Feathered Friends To Make and Sew, was an ALA Booklist top ten craft book of 2011 and I have a new book coming out about soft toy design! It will be published by Lark in May of 2013.
Meet Emma. She's a beautiful doll to sew!
Her modern dress, high socks, and Mary Jane shoes are so stylish. And her butterfly hair accessory is just too cute! But best of all, Emma is a doll designed for real play by real kids! She's machine sewn from fleece which means she's durable and machine washable. Fleece is easy to find in all fabric stores, it's inexpensive, and it comes in vibrant colors and patterns. A perfect material for a handmade doll.
The finished Emma doll is 20 inches tall.
The pattern includes:
-step-by-step photos guiding you as you sew
-easy to understand directions that are clear and concise
-links to articles and videos made just for you!
-full-sized templates you can print again and again
