(Pssst! Looking for Friday Fiver? It’s here! A small scheduling hiccup created two fun posts on one day. SCORE!)
Before I can tell you about the PATTERN THAT CHANGED MY LIFE I have to introduce the person who posed the question. I’ve followed Abby Glassenberg online for several years. She blogs about sewing and creative businesses – her own and the meaty bits of insight she collects from around the world. On a recent trip through New England I even got to meet her and tour her studio! Should you happen to take a studio tour with your three children in tow, Abby’s is the one you want — she designs stuffed animals and soft toys! The girls who’re old enough to make words asked to take alllll of the studio samples home. I convinced them that because Abby designs sewing patterns, we can make them all ourselves using her patterns!
Today I’m her guest as part of her “The Pattern That Changed My Life” series – and I’m so happy to be there.
For each of us as a maker of anything there’s a moment – a turning point – where something clicks. When you know you need to try MORE MORE MORE. I talk about the PATTERN THAT CHANGED MY LIFE in today’s post on While She Naps, though for me it was not a pattern per se but a kit. And not one kit but two.
With bonus baby photo. Because when you have a baby you can include in photos, you’ll be glad you did.
