Designer Introduction: Pickle Toes Patterns

cropped-picmonkey-collage2.jpgMy name is Kellie Davis, and I am the owner/designer of Pickle Toes Patterns. Some of you may know me from Snails N Tails Boutique, my custom children's clothing line. I've been designing patterns for several years for use in my custom clothing, but 2 years ago I decided to try out actually drafting my patterns into PDF's. I LOVED it! A month after my first pattern release, I had some medical issues that put my sewing career on hold for a while. When I healed, I found that I could no longer sew for hours at a time, so Snails N Tails died and, like a Phoenix, out of the ashes was born Pickle Toes Patterns.

I've been back to work for a little over 2 months, and in that time I have released 2 patterns, have 2 more ready to release, and 3 nearing the testing phase. I am totally in LOVE with pattern making. I work on my patterns every spare moment that I'm not in school or being a wife and mother of my 2 wonderful boys. If I had known how much fun PDF pattern making is, I would have started doing this years ago, when I first began designing my own patterns. The good thing about starting now is that I have a nice stack of my own designs already there for me to put into PDF format.

Right now, I only have a few patterns designed for Build-a-Bear style animal clothing. Releasing Thanksgiving weekend will be a Bears 'N Buddies Skirt and Shirt pattern, and Burps 'N Bibs pattern for babies. Coming soon to Pickle Toes Patterns is the fun, diagonal color blocked, Taylor Tee pattern, Alex pants, and Bears 'N Buddies Stuffed Friends.
