New mom to baby Otto born April 2018!

Welcome to new original pattern designer! And giveaway!!

This giveaway is now closed.  Check back soon for more!

Welcome to new sponsor Liz of Little Lizard King patterns, a totally original pattern line for kids and their dolls!
Liz learned to sew from her mom and began as a child (me too!).  Here's a little bit about her story:
I'm a new parent following in the footsteps of my seamstress mom. We enjoy crafting, embroidering, and sewing for friends and family. My daughter and her little lizard friends are the inspiration for most of the items you will find.


I started making cute couture once I had a child and quickly discovered how easy, enjoyable, and inexpensive it is to make custom clothing and personalized accessories for my daughter and her friends.


After a couple requests and some kind compliments, I decided to start making step-by-step instructions and sewing patterns to sell to other little lizards as well.


My goal is to teach you to create custom clothing for your daughters and their dolls at a fraction of boutique prices.
--Little Lizard King
