Hi! I’m Jill – wife, mother of 4, teacher, and sewing addict.


I thought about starting to sew while pregnant with my first child. That didn’t go so well and I put it aside until pregnant with my second child. I decided to make curtains for the baby’s room. They did their job, but I’m sure I would be embarrassed to see them at this point! When I had my third child, I quit my teaching job and became addicted to sewing.


I started my sewing business, Stuffin’ Fluff, making cloth diapers and children’s clothing. I started buying wayyyyy too many patterns and I still have the pattern buying itch quite often these days 😉 However, somewhere along the line, I decided I could make patterns. I started learning all the technical stuff about children’s bodies and pattern making, and then came AimerLae & Finn. I have since had a fourth child and gone back to teaching, but I love turning a mental picture into a pattern for something that can actually be made.

All my patterns are thoroughly tested for all sizes. Most of my patterns have layers and no-trim pages. I have evolved over time and will need to update the first couple of patterns to include layers, no-trim pages, printing guide, measurement charts, etc. I hope you will love my patterns and share the joy of a handmade item with someone you love!

Feel free to sew from any of my patterns with intent to sell the finished item. My patterns are copyrighted and it is unlawful to share the pattern pieces or tutorial in any way, shape, or form.
