My name is Cecilia, I'm an Analyst Programmer by career, crafter, passionate about sewing, designer, wife, mother... I love crafting since I remember, as a child I used to spend a lot of time designing, painting, making crafts in general. I grew up watching my mother sewing and as a teenager I used to design my own dresses and she used to sew them for me. A few months after my little girl was born I started to design and sew clothes for her... soon I started a blog about the stuff I do ( as a way to share my ideas and craftiness :) with other people.. I own The Lily Bird Studio where I sell sewing patterns for babies and kids wear.
