I’m an English girl in the US living my Daydreams with my beautiful children as my daily source of inspiration and my darling husband.  If I can teach them anything, it's that Daydreams do come true!

When I was a little girl my Nanna taught me to sew & my first project was a little rag doll - I was in love! But when I brought a store doll pattern I was shocked at how hard it was to understand and so unhappy with my finished friend. So I kept creating my own doll & softie designs for my friends & family. 

Basket of dollies!

My life took an interesting turn in 2010 after I organized a charity doll drive for the children of Haiti. I designed and offered an easy free doll pattern and the response was amazing.

We collected over 500 dolls for the children and have since continued to collect, make & send out 1000’s to children in need all over the world. Through this wonderful work I received so many kind comments and requests for more designs and patterns and thus Dolls And Daydreams™ was born on November 27, 2010.

I start with my daydreamed doll/softie sketches and after numerous prototypes I turn them into patterns to share with other stay-at-home mummies who want easy to follow patterns that let them make quality products for their kiddie winks to enjoy, something that reflected their child’s uniqueness that they can pour love into whilst they make it for them. 

I love handmade and support cottage industries whole heartedly!
