I've sewn as long as I can remember. In 2011, I began selling the bags I designed. However, when I realized I most enjoyed experimenting with new designs, and figuring out -- I wonder how to make that? -- I started developing sewing patterns. Translating a physical bag into written instructions and illustrations taps my background in teaching, and experience in graphic design. What begins as a drawing in my sketchbook, morphs through rigorous tests and revisions. What finally emerges, the beautiful creations, singularly interpreted by each maker using my patterns, delights me and inspires me to keep going.
