I have been creating my own patterns since 1992 and will add those pictures as I find them. I absolutely love creating unique pieces that bring joy to others and have rarely kept any of my own creations for myself.

Moving forward I’ve decided that I will create less than a dozen of each physical item and then sell my patterns with instructions for those who would like to try their hands at making my patterns. I’ll list them on my Etsy shop –> Sewing with STEAM on Etsy


Memory Bear with hand-embroidered nose and eyes
Original pattern I created in 2006 of 3′ doll, hand-embroidered face, wool yarn hair.
Left side: original pattern of Pilgram Boy doll, hand-painted facial features
This is the first dress I made, it was around 2005. My daughter, Savannah, was invited to a Princess Tea Party and needed a party dress.
