My name is Ellen and I LOVE to design and create things. I have been making things for as long as I can remember. I find it deeply satisfying to start with an idea and some yarn, fabric or paint and finish with a beautiful product that can be enjoyed for years to come. Crafts are not only a way to express my creativity, but also a way to show I care. There's love in every stitch! To see my complete pattern collection, visit shop.thechillydog.com.
