Izzy & Ivy Designs is a new children's pattern design company on the scene. We first saw them pop up on Moda Bake Shop with really stylish pattern tutorials, then got to meet them this year at Quilt Market! These 3 ladies all bring their personal expertise to the table, and, seeing what they've been able to spin out so far, we can't wait to see what's next!
Our first Quilt Market was amazing. It all feels like a dream! It was so exciting for us that other people liked our designs as much as we do! It was great to meet all of the shop owners, and get their advice and suggestions. One highlight was winning Best New Vendor. When they made the announcement we screamed, and everyone looked. It was fun!
Our vision was to create a line of patterns that were stylish, but not difficult to make. We want to help that new sewer to want to keep sewing. We kept this in mind as we made the patterns, and wrote the instructions, making each step fully illustrated. To make sure that our patterns were understandable we had a sewing club test our patterns. This group had a variety of sewing levels, from beginning to expert, and they proved very helpful in finding all of our mistakes.
We still love every second of this dream we are living, even the seconds we spend working out all of the kinks. We love being able to work with so many fun people, and we appreciate all of the support and friendship we have been surrounded with.
