I began sewing as a child - my mother did tailoring and alterations. In 2004, I began designing, making, and selling purses at arts festivals - I named my business Ms. Elaineous. In 2009, I opened Sew You Can where I taught sewing lessons. I closed my studio in 2012 to focus on designing patterns. You can follow me at And my real name isn't Elaine - she's my alter-ego!
