About this project

I love creating bag sewing patterns on my blog! I think it is so helpful, especially for beginners, to have great instructions as well as step-by-step photos. I would like to move my pattern-making skills in 2013 to the next level and produce clothing that is both easy to sew and fun to wear!

Half of my Kickstarter goal minimum is to raise the money to buy a package of quality garment pattern drafting software. Tentatively, I would like to produce my instructions as a pdf, which will come on a cd inside of a case. The pattern pieces will be printed on tissue and included in the case. They will contain my easy-to-follow instruction style and color step-by-step photos to get you sewing a dress in no time! Because of the high minimums for printing, the other half of my Kickstarter goal will go toward printing costs for 2 patterns.

I wish I could do this on my own, but I just can't! I work at a pet store on the weekends so I can stay home with my kids during the week while my husband is at work, and I think this is a way that I can not only better myself, but help my kids learn about hard work and that it's possible to do something that you love.

Here are some examples of my (free) bag sewing patterns:

I hope that if you already read my blog, you know that I have a track record of providing interesting sewing content and reliable sewing patterns. I want everyone to be able to sew and be successful in making any project that they set out to make!!

I cannot wait to create fun and stylish clothing sewing patterns!! Please help me reach my goal and life dream!!
