I run, I craft, I write, and I make your favorite clothes.

I have written books about sewing for children and adults and I'm the indie designer’s patternmaking secret weapon. I've taught video and in-person classes to anyone who would listen since 2008. I believe that sewing clothes is a radical act of self-love that increases your sense of self-worth. I'm basically your sewing fairy godmother.

ella’s art space

Pin It!

I’ve been toying around with setting up a special place for Ella to be able to reach all of her art supplies at once, without having to always ask, where she can start projects, and where everything has its place.

Thanks goodness for ikea, or I never would have been able to do it!”

    Wow! Very cool. I have one of those rolly drawer cabinets and I love it– so perfect for art supplies (and sewing supplies in my case ;) )
    I’ll bet Ellabella is going to really enjoy her new space.

      I have them in my room, too, Christina. I love them – they fit entire patters flat (when you’re sewing for kids) and I keep everything that used to be strewn about my sewing space in it!
