I've been crafting for as long as I can remember. As a teen I began teaching myself to sew and started making some of my own clothes. Later went on to major in Fashion Design and to basically unlearn all that I taught myself. :) However, all my earlier experimentation gave me a freedom in my sewing to do things a little "out of the box" and not be afraid to have fun with sewing even if it occasionally breaks some rules.As a mama to 5, I am most inspired by my children. I am currently on maternity leave/hiatus. In 2014, I plan to return with fresh new designs. You will find my line of children's clothing patterns at www.lilygiggle.com and here as well. Thanks so much for all the support!
