Hi and welcome to my blog! My name is Kim Kruzich, and I live in Indiana with my 2 sons, husband, and 3 rescue dogs. My business originally started as a midnight insomniac’s hobby with a little sewing machine that my mom bought for me with Betty Crocker points. I made aprons as Christmas gifts one year, and from that moment on I was hooked! Since then I have been designing pincushions, soft toys, kitchen goods, and accessories. Additionally, I now sell beautiful wool-blend felt, which I use in my own sewing and craft-making. I have published 14 patterns and many tutorials, contributed to a book, and my work has also been featured in magazines.

My sewing patterns are available as instant downloads in PDF format in my Etsy and Craftsy shops, as well as the following retailers:
