Who is this site for?

I rediscovered my love of sewing this year. This blog will feature pattern reviews, crafting, insider reviews on soon to be released patterns, sew-a-longs, and much more. The focus is mostly on indie pattern designers.

How did I get the name HattieLu?

My sewing label is in honor of my great-grandmother and great-aunt. Both were/are an inspiration to me! Granny Hattie taught me the importance of striving to achieve my dreams. Auntie Lu taught me how to sew.
