Swoodson Says

I'm Stephanie and I love making things! I taught myself to sew when I was pregnant with my first child and couldn't find the clothes or nursery decor that I wanted. 

Once I was hooked, I couldn't stop, and I've documented my craft experiments and sewing adventures since then on by blog, Swoodson Says.

Sewing keeps me sane when I'm staying at home with two young kids and I love being a part of the online community of makers.

As my kids got older, I started making them toys and now sell the patterns from some of their favourites, all designed to encourage imaginative play and exploration.

Nothing gives me greater pleasure than hearing about a kid loving their handmade toy from one of my patterns!
