We Wilsons are newly living in our little home in the woods in rural TN. We're do-it-yourself-ers, and especially love sewing, baking, gardening, homeschooling, and sustainable living. Find our patterns and recipes here (along with a few disasters). I like to figure things out as I go, John likes to plan ahead. Either way, we like to get our hands dirty.
I authored and illustrated a book with Lark Crafts, to be released this Fall. It's full of interactive toys made of clever materials with fun illustrations. Check it out: Flip Dolls and Other Toys that Zip, Stack, Hide, Grab and Go!
"Why make an ordinary stuffed toy when you can sew irresistible creations that flip, zip, snap, stack, and move? Filled with wit, humor, and inventiveness, these delightful interactive playthings sometimes literally turn your expectations inside out. Page after page of clever projects include a caterpillar that changes into a butterfly, a vampire who becomes a bat, and ordinary dolls that transform into superheroes! Or stitch a pretty bird that perches on your shoulder, bunnies that bounce, a car with spinning wheels, and other amazing toys."You can find more of my design work here. Go here for answers to some frequently asked questions about the blog and my patterns. Thanks for joining me here in this happy crafty space. I love hearing from you!
