About Me

me_blue shirtHello! I’m Patricia, and I am learning to sew. I had barely touched a sewing machine since 8th grade until the summer of 2014 when my 2 ½ year-old needed a costume for his preschool’s Costume Days. He wanted to be blue. I bought a cheap sewing machine, made him a blue cape, and I was hooked!

I live in San Francisco with my husband, our son, and an orange cat. I am a scientist by day. When I’m not sewing or working, I am hiking and camping and generally enjoying the outdoors with my family, listening to great music, and occasionally curling up on the couch with a good book.

I love seeing and reading about what other people are making. This blog is a fun way for me to record my sewing projects and what I learn along the way, and to share them with the community. Enjoy!2013-02-23 10.08.28you can also find me on pinterest, flickr, and instagram (@foxthreads)
