hi, i'm maggie.

{like the rod stewart song}

i'm a quirky millennial living in the bay area who loves dark beer, hiking, exposed brick, and creative endeavors, in particular sewing for my four nieces: nora, etta, maya, and neela.

mommy & me

you remember maya's beatles dress?

well my sister loved it so much she requested a matching infinity scarf and when your pregnant sister asks you for a piece of fabric sewn together you do it.

here they are matching on a doughnut date a few days before neela was born.

a few months later neela got in on the action with a matching 2+2 top.

so one of my favorite gifts for new moms has become has become an infinity scarf for mom and a matching top for baby.

i whipped this set up for a friend who just had a daughter with fabric from my stash (bought on sale almost years ago at stonemountain & daughter).

per usual i used french seams on the sides of the 2 + 2 top.

of course each piece gets a handmade label

man putting up these pictures makes me realize how much I love the label cut without pinking sheers and stitched with that tight zig zag.

maybe i should do it that way from now on.

love, 

aunt maggie
