Chris from Pickup Some Creativity is up next with another fun Summer Sewing project, but first be sure to read her introduction and check out her blog. Chris has lots of free tutorials and patterns on her site (we want to make that Summertime Romper!), and her Sewing 101 Archive is full of great tips you can put into use today! Enjoy learning a little about Chris and her busy days, and check back here later for more.

I’m Chris Pickup (yes, that is our last name!) from Pickup Some Creativity. Thirty something, wife to one, mom to four, and some even call me doctor. Crazy huh? I’ve been sewing since I was four and I find a lot of joy in creating. My blog is my outlet, a journal of my creations for my kids, and my hope to spark someone else’s creativity. My blog hosts a monthly Sewing 101 series to help jump start a sewing passion for the beginning sewist. I have begun designing sewing patterns. My current favorite is my Build Your Own Robot Softie. You can find them at the shop on my blog or on Etsy.
