Hello! My name is Maggie. I'm the creator of Maggie Elizabeth Designs. I love sewing, designing new patterns, baking, being with my family, wholesome fashion, music, and most importantly I love Jesus! The reason behind creating my pattern company was to encourage others to work with their hands and enjoy the rewarding benefits of learning a creative skill. Most of my patterns are made from an idea and wanting a product that couldn't be easily found...or affordable! =) My life verse is Proverbs 3:5-6, Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths. I hope that you will be inspired by my products! Be creative and happy sewing! View a short video about our PDF's here.
