This is Rachel. She designs all-original patterns for children and babies…that takes talent, my friends. And a couple of months ago, she opened her brand-new Etsy shop….
“I started my Etsy shop just a few months ago. I’m really excited with the response I’ve had so far! I started crafting my own patterns after my daughter was born and I’d see all these adorable outfits at the mall with pretty hefty price tags. I went home and started plotting how I was going to recreate them! All of my patterns are drawn on the computer so even though they are handmade, they don’t look it!

I started sewing when I was young. My aunt showed me the basics on a rag quilt way back when and I’ve taken a few quilting classes since then. I find I enjoy making childrens clothes best and get the most use out of them.
I used to work in a cardiology office as a Medical Assistant but am now staying home with my daughter and so loving it! I do go a little stir crazy at times so I keep busy sewing and dreaming up new patterns. In my blog I write about things I’ve made, upcoming patterns, life & motherhood and anything that inspires me! I love the feedback from fellow bloggers. My husband doesn’t get very excited about a grocery bag dispenser if you can imagine.

Other than sewing…in my spare time I like to cook and try new recipes (I post them on my blog if they’re any good!). My husband and I like to take the motorcycle out as much as we can, even if it’s just to get a coffee at Starbucks! We are active in the church and with my husbands music and outreach ministries.
I love making all things baby. Baby blankets, dresses, burp cloths.. Luckily, it seems like everyone I know is now pregnant or just had a baby so everything finds a home!”
