Hi! I'm Vicki - it's lovely to meet you!

I’m a maker, designer and photographer who creates simple, easy to use PDF sewing patterns

There's something uniquely satisfying about making things from scratch, so my goal is to design patterns that allow anyone, no matter their skill level, to enjoy the experience of creating something entirely themselves.

I haven't always been a pattern designer, but I've been a sewing enthusiast for a very long time.  Like many others, I was taught to sew at an early age by my mother and grandmother, and have enjoyed a variety of sewing projects including clothes, gifts for family and friends and home decor.

Once my kids were all at school and I had time for creating again, I opened an Etsy and Madeit store selling handmade bags and accessories for kids.  I no longer sell ready made products but have created PDF patterns of my designs so everyone can have the opportunity to make their own.

So How Does the Photography Fit In?

I’ve always had a passion for photography and became particularly interested in product photography when selling ready made items, so much so, that at times I could never decide what I enjoyed more - making the products or taking photos of them.  One thing led to another, and I soon found myself helping others improve the photography for their own online stores.   That may be the reason you've found me here.

 

I still help others through my "Product Photography at Home" eGuides and sewing stock photos, but my pattern store has grown more than expected, so it’s my priority now. 

 

I thoroughly enjoy all aspects of designing and selling patterns, but especially hearing from satisfied customers who are thrilled with what they’ve been able to create.   I hope to hear from you one day too!

 

In the meantime, be sure to check out my Pattern Club so you can get 10% off all patterns in my Etsy and Madeit stores when you're ready to buy.
