Welcome to my Page!

Welcome to your webpage! I am so excited to be on this journey with you as you learn new knowledge and skills about the world of Fashion & Textiles.  One of the most important things you will be learning is sewing techniques and construction.  I have tried to choose projects that you will enjoy and use that will also teach you important skills.  Your desire and dedication to learning is the key.  

You will develop thinking and problem solving skills along the way.  These will serve you well in all areas of your life.  Let's get started!!!

Pajama Pants Tutorial

I created this tutorial from the pattern instructions.  I prefer to use the first step from the tutorial above to join the front and back crotch seams before moving on.  Either way is fine, but I think it is less confusing if you join the front and back crotch seams first.
