Hi, my name is Yoan. I make fun and functional sewing patterns/ video tutorials.
I have been sewing since I was a little girl. I used to sew (by hand) my own Barbie doll's clothes out of scraps that I got from an older lady neighbor who was a seamstress, and was kind enough to teach me the basic of hand sewing. I could still vividly remember how happy I was when she handed over a bag of fabric scraps for me to play with.
About 8 years ago, due to experiencing the so called "burnout" with my job in corporate world, I began sewing again simply to escape and relax after a busy day at work.
I originally started this blog and my Youtube channel out of boredom and feeling of isolation during postpartum, also to record my little sewing and quilting journey. I mainly focus on bag making, modern quilts, and scrap busting projects, and would typically post 2-3 videos a month.
I currently live in Northern Arizona with my husband, our 3 year-old son, and blue heeler dog. Beside sewing and making videos, I also enjoy hiking, mountain biking, crochet/knitting and reading.
Thank you for stopping by and Happy Sewing!
