Pattern Details

The story behind the Corcoran Cross Body: While I worked in Washington, D.C., I loved exploring the beautiful city on my lunch breaks. A favorite lunchtime destination was the Corcoran Gallery of Art. I remember how transporting the works of art were for me, carrying me into their vast landscapes, and faraway from whatever stresses may have dogged me from my office. I've named this pattern with fondness for those long ago lunch hours. It is my hope that the loveliness each sewist imprints on her version will invite beauty into her days, to both the harried and the ordinary.

I've sewn as long as I can remember. In 2011, I began selling the bags I designed. However, when I realized I most enjoyed experimenting with new designs, and figuring out -- I wonder how to make that? -- I started developing sewing patterns. Translating a physical bag into written instructions and illustrations taps my background in teaching, and experience in graphic design. What begins as a drawing in my sketchbook, morphs through rigorous tests and revisions. What finally emerges, the beautiful creations, singularly interpreted by each maker using my patterns, delights me and inspires me to keep going.
