Join Kristi for her upcoming tutorial… It’s a bag for all of the essentials you need as you go through your day! First take a look at her intro and hop over to Schnitzel & Boo. You can also find Kristi’s patterns on Etsy and see her latest via Instagram.

People say Kristi McDonough made her entrance into this world with a needle and thread in one hand and a pair of scissors in the other! While that may not be exactly true, she has been sewing almost her whole life– since she was five, in fact. Today, she is a pattern designer, quilter, garment sewer, toy maker and all-around crafty lady.

Kristi’s life’s passions (aside from sewing and crafting) include her seven year old daughter, “Roo”, husband Jamie, two dogs (Fenway Frank and Nelson) and three bunnies (Coco, Luna and Bunny). You can find more from Kristi at or on Instagram: @schnitzelandboo.
