About Me

Hi! I’m Jessica, a young mom looking to create a beautiful, simple life. Here at Stitches and Sunflowers I’ll be documenting 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 love exploring nature and sharing it with my son (L), who is two. I’m a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and I love my Savior Jesus Christ.

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.
