I am the owner, designer and maker behind all the things here at The Homebody Company. I have a deep love for all things handmade and am 100% the person who will buy $100 of supplies to make something that would cost $20 in a store.
For as long as I can remember, I would spend my afternoons after school making mini pillows (like so many tiny pillows!) on my grandmas sewing machine until she felt it was time to start teaching me how to sew something a little bit bigger - a quilt! I still have that quilt even with the wear and tear and it's slight shade of blue after washing it with some of my jeans one time. While it is the simplest quilt made of precut fabric squares, hand ties and no batting, it will always be my favorite.
You may ask - why quilt pattern designing? There has been a lot of trial and error as I worked to find my style and what I wanted this business to be. There have been name changes, product changes, craft changes (I used to spend all of my time knitting or crocheting) and it quickly turned into designing my own quilt patterns and now here we are today!
I hope that my site and all its contents brings you a true sense of coziness and joy. I am a homebody through and through and love nothing more than to create a cozy and welcoming space in my home (and online platforms) for all who enter!
Now that I have turned my hobby into a business, I have had to find something else to get away from it all every once in a while - reading! I have always loved reading and go through phases where I'll finish a book in a week or sometimes it takes me 6 months. So if for some odd reason I am not sewing or writing up a new pattern, you can catch me curled up with a new book (or Harry Potter for the billionth time)!
A Little More About Me
Being in this community is one of the neatest things to come along with designing patterns. I LOVE chatting with you guys about your projects, questions you may have or fabric combos you are thinking about using for one of my patterns.
