From Beth: Leah from Sew Spoiled has a free PDF tutorial coming up next, and you won’t want to miss it! Leah enjoys designing patterns and has some great ladybug-inspired designs for sale in the shop. Take a look at Sew Spoiled while you eagerly await Leah’s free tutorial!

From Leah: I am a wife, mother of two, music teacher and pattern designer. My knowledge of sewing comes from my mother and grandmothers. I grew up thinking everyone’s mother reupholstered their furniture! I love creating and sharing my designs with others. I started writing my designs down after a friend on Flickr asked if I would help her make a bag like one I had made. Sewing, taking pictures, drawing and testing the products sounds like fun but it is also a lot of work. My favorite moments are reading emails from others showing me pictures of their completed bags and how happy they are to have completed their Sew Spoiled project.
