Cutie Pie and Me

Hi!  I am Anne-Marie, the seamstress behind cutie pie & me.  I am honored to have my pattern designs available through Liberty Jane.

 

As a child, my most treasured toy was a My Friend Mandy doll and her suitcase full of clothes hand-made by my great aunt.  As an adult, I fell in love with American Girl dolls after a visit to the Chicago American Girl Place.  I was inspired to sew clothing for them just as my aunt had sewn clothing for my doll when I was young.

 

I’m mostly self-taught in various needle arts, quilting, and sewing.  I did spend six years working at a small, locally owned fabric store where I learned a lot about clothing construction from my wonderful co-workers!  Many of my early doll clothes were displayed in the store as samples for the various patterns that were stocked.

 

Since then I have always been on the lookout for fun new patterns to sew (and have added lots of American Girl doll “models” to my collection!).  I was thrilled when I found Liberty Jane Patterns.   Real-looking clothes!  Great fit!  Finally!

 

Sewing Liberty Jane patterns has given me the confidence to try designing patterns of my own.  I am grateful for this opportunity.

 

I am thankful for my husband and two children and also their willingness to accompany me on fabric shopping trips and visits to AG Place.
