I had always wanted to learn to sew, just never got around to it. A few years ago, after a few failed attempts at ordering some slippers for my kids, I decided I would buy a sewing machine, teach myself to sew, and make the slippers for my kids.

I did buy the machine and taught myself to sew. I just never got around to making the slippers because at some point I realized I can make bags with my sewing machine. You know, actual bags, like ones you buy at stores, with pockets and cute fabric and faux leather and everything… my mind was blown!

It didn’t take long for my engineer’s mind to jump from following patterns to drafting my own. And then to writing them!

I am thoroughly blessed I was able to find something that I love doing so much and deeply grateful I am able to keep doing it!
