I'm Stefanie, the designer behind the sewing, knitting and crochet patterns at I Make It You Make It. The shop features digital patterns for vintage-inspired and on-trend fashion accessories, and complete DIY kits for your one-stop projects. Careful attention is paid to making sure each pattern is super simple to follow, has clear instructions with pictures at every step, and includes tips and tricks appropriate for all skill levels.
The shop came about because for years, I’d been disappointed by the lack of fashionable sewing patterns available and usually just end up creating my own patterns! With a definite bias towards all things vintage, my patterns have a feeling of nostalgia mixed with a modern fashion sense. I love new takes on old stuff.
When I’m not creating something in the craft studio, I work as a software user interface designer, so function ranks just as highly with me as form. User-friendly design is something I focus on in every one of my patterns, and in the finished products. True to my research nature, every pattern has been usability tested, every comment heard, and every detail carefully examined.
