About Me

Hi! I’m Jessica, a young mom looking to create a beautiful, simple life. Here at Stitches and Sunflowers I documented a few short pages from my journey by sharing sewing tutorials (the stitches) and my inspiration for joyful motherhood (the sunflowers).

I believe that every person has creative ability and that beauty lies in small everyday details. I believe that moms need a space full of encouragement and inspiration rather than judgement or advice.

I developed a love for sewing and crafting as a teenager, and since then it’s only grown. My knowledge about sewing and pattern making grew through taking university courses and working in costume design and construction. Sewing is my outlet for creativity and personal growth, so now I carve out naptime to practice and improve my skills.

Unfortunately, as a mom to two little ones, I’m finding that I have to choose where to spend my time. I’ve realized that I want to spend more time sewing and snuggling and less time on the computer. My blogging adventure has come to a close for now. Find out more here.
