Hi there, and welcome! I'm Jen, a designer, author, and teacher based in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
I design handbags and quilt patterns that are straightforward and simple to understand, and I love sharing my patterns with you!
I am constantly inspired by by surroundings: clean lines in architecture, textures and patterns, the sunsets of the southwest, and the mountains and deserts.
If you are interested in designing your own sewing patterns to sell, I made an online course just for you!
Take your design from idea to launch, as I show you how to create professional illustrations and pattern pieces and a clean, graphically appealing cover and instructions.
It's everything you need to launch your first sewing pattern!
Do you want to turn your ideas into a PDF sewing pattern to sell, but you don't know where to start? Perhaps you have a sketch but don't know how to make it digital?
This course is designed to remove hurdles that you may have to bring your sewing patterns to life. We'll draft our pattern pieces together with free software, we'll write clear instructions, we'll create eye-catching graphics and illustrations, and we'll explore where to sell your patterns!
I am SO excited to share with you one of my absolute FAVORITE ways to personalize my sewing projects! I think you're going to love my favorite faux-shibori technique.
First - confession: I am totally a solids girl. Love 'em. I do love fabrics with pattern, but finding the right combination of solids really makes my heart sing. I love that when I use solids, I can customize them, modify them, and make them entirely my own.
