Lisa Leonard Lisa Leonard2

Aqua Nugget Necklace

Lisa Leonard started making jewelry in high school just for fun— she would have house parties and sell to friends occasionally. After her first son, David, was born with Cornelia De Lange Syndrome, Lisa decided to quit her job and start Lisa Leonard Designs with her husband Steve, in order to give her time to spend with her sons. She started blogging and the business really took off. Now, Lisa spends her time making pancakes, creating handmade jewelry and trying to find time to enjoy the little things.

Straight Stitch Society Digital Pattern

Oliver + S products are designed by Liesl Gibson. After starting a career in publishing and finance, Liesl returned to school and earned a degree in fashion design from New York’s Fashion Institute of Technology. Before having a child, she worked as a designer for Tommy Hilfiger and Ralph Lauren.

While staying home with the baby, Liesl began designing her daughter’s clothing. “People were asking if they could buy the patterns for the dresses I was making,” Liesl says. “One thing led to another, and I had a new career.” In 2008 Liesl launched Oliver + S, a new brand of sewing patterns for children’s clothing. Today Liesl also designs a line of Oliver + S fabric. She published her first book, Oliver + S Little Things to Sew in 2011.

In 2011 Liesl created Lisette, a line of sewing patterns and fabric for women’s apparel that is now available at Jo-Ann stores in the USA and Spotlight stores in Australia. In 2012 Liesl debuted Straight Stitch Society, a collection of patterns for gifts and accessories. The brand’s tagline, “Life is hard. Sewing is easy.” expresses its quirky and sometimes irreverent personality.

In 2010 Liesl was given the FabShop Network’s Rising Star Award, an honor bestowed by independent fabric store owners across North America. Liesl lives in Manhattan with her husband and daughter and commutes daily to her studio in Brooklyn.

Happy Go Lucky” Fat Quarter Bundle

The Fat Quarter Shop was founded in 2003 by Kimberly Jolly. An avid quilter, Kimberly began her shop as a side business while still working a corporate position, cutting, packing and shipping right out of her house during evenings and weekends. From the very beginning, she was committed to delivering top-notch service for every single order and customer. As the Fat Quarter Shop’s reputation grew, Kimberly decided to make it a full-time operation. Her husband Kevin joined her not long after, and with his help, lots of hard work, and a tireless commitment, the store began to grow. Over the past few years a few more people have joined the staff!

As a team, we continue to branch out with the best fabrics, exclusive kits, quilt clubs, BOMs, and more. And we will always be driven by the passion that Kimberly founded the store upon, which is always giving you the best products and service!

$50 gift card to the MissyDear Shop

Hey it’s me!  Missy, the host of this here SYTYC competition.  I have a weakness.  I love hair accessories.  Like, really like them.  And I also love wool felt.  Have you ever touched real wool felt? It’s like heaven. So I thought I’d throw the two together and make some adorable wool felt cuteness for babies. I started out just doing them as gifts for baby showers but I had so many people ask about them I decided to open an Etsy shop.  I had to close up shop for a few years while our family moved cross country multiple times (5 states in 5 years – goo) and got SYTYC up and going, but I’ve recently reopened for business under a new name, MissyDear Designs.  With the reopening I’ve added other materials, designs and sizes but I still think they’re adorable.  If I do say so myself.  And new things are added all the time!

Simply Homemade

 $30 gift card to the Simply Handmade Shop

As a crafty busy mom of 5, my Etsy business is my way of feeding my frenzied fabric/craft supply addiction and getting my designs out of my head and into real life.

Simply Homemade actually started out as a cloth diaper shop but with the original name (Bitty Bumz) I realized there was no way to ever branch out so I started the painful process of re-naming, re-stocking, and re-designing. Now I can pretty much sell anything my little self feels like making including diapers. Currently it’s bags, clutches, and earrings but I have plans to eventually sell patterns and kits for the DIYer! For those of you who love originality, I’m working on the “design your own bag” listing. Choose your favorite strap, body, flap, hardware, and fabrics to create a one of a kind bag. I’m really excited for this one!

I take great pride in my work and I always take the extra time to offer well made products. I love sending my handiwork out into the world to be loved by someone new and I’m really excited to have the opportunity of sponsoring this season of SYTYC. Missy is one of the sweetest and most wonderful ladies to work with so I appreciate her willingness to let me on as a sponsor. Good luck to all the amazing ladies this season!!

During the duration of this season I’m offering free shipping for any purchase with the coupon code SYTYC
