I'm Lucy, a pattern designer and craft writer but most importantly a wife and mom of 2 living it up in the Hudson Valley!
Lucy Blaire Handmade
At Lucy Blaire Handmade I pride myself on making easy to follow sewing patterns for toys and stuffies with clean and clear illustrations and pattern pieces that always produce adorable buddies for you or someone you love!
Sewing has been part of my life for as long as I can remember but wasn’t a serious venture until I got a job as a seamstress at a custom drapery workroom in Boston. I was trained in all things home decor from bedding to draperies and pillows but when I struck out on my own I gravitated to more three dimensional sewing and finally into stuffies once my daughter was born.
Over the last 6 years I’ve written for many different magazines, a few books, was a guest on PBS’s Sew It All TV twice, and have 5 online sewing classes available through F&W’s Craft Daily. For some reason the quest for my own book has become my white whale, always so close yet just out of reach, but I try and channel that obsession into expanding my abilities and creativity on a daily basis.
