Hello and welcome to my little contribution to the sewing world!
My name is Paola and I love to sew. I learned just a little bit of sewing (pretty much just how to thread my machine and basic straight stitch) from my mother, who was just amazing but really had no time to sew. I got my very first sewing machine back in 2006 and thought I would use it all the time. I bought all sorts of patterns and fabric and once I opened said patterns I realized that I knew nothing, I mean, seriously I just couldn’t figure them out. Needless to say, I quit sewing altogether until my son was born. Aside from a couple of burp cloths, I made very little for him because, again, I found the store bought patterns to be very confusing for someone with no experience like me. Then, when my daughter was born in 2012 something happened: I really wanted to sew. I started doing some online research and I discovered what an amazing sewing community was out there, willing to help and encourage the novice sewist. My first encounters with sewing pages were at and I made nicer burp clothes for my daughter and my very first pillowcase dress. I was hooked. I asked for a serger and my amazing husband got me one last year. After that I was at the point of no return. I discovered the most amazing PDF patterns that come with amazing step by step tutorials and an online community just a message away, always willing to help. I can now say that my sewing has improved, I am still a rookie but I can make an outfit that looks well finished and pretty decent if I say so myself. My children are my inspiration and the sewing community out there my strength and source of encouragement, knowledge and support. So here I am, just trying to share my experience with the amazing world of online, PDF sewing patterns. Enjoy and if you need any help or have any questions just leave a comment, I will be more than happy to help or direct you to someone that can (most likely the case since I am a true newbie)

Happy Sewing!
