In 2007, I had started to create patterns of my Mackerilla brand handbag designs which I have been sewing and selling since 2001. Then I decided to have available my sewing pattern instructions to sell to all the crafty types that want to make one of my designs. I have successfully created a line of patterns and continue to add in new designs. They are sold here on this website and on my ETSY page. They are also sold through pattern distributors to fabric, quilter shops and online retailers.
