About me


Me as my son sees me 🙂

Hi world! I am Maya from little country in Europe, who loves creating. It is my constant in life, my meditation, my peace of heaven. But most of all I enjoy creating with my two sons who are the source of my inspiration, my door do the unlimited imagination, where no rules exist, colors are combined in crazy ways, and time is filled with lots of fun and hugging. Times we find to create together are priceless and our pieces of art deeply cherished.

This page is simply all about sharing my passion. I hope, you will find lots of useful information in my little SewToy corner. I will add tested, qualitative, cute, free tutorials & patterns, as well as tips & tricks that were my aha! moments learning something new by my self or when creating with my kids. These are my findings, my experience I gathered all the way since my first creative projects as a child. Therefore this is not a webpage with links to everywhere as only tested in practice, proven tutorials and ideas I can stand behind will be added. Your ideas, findings and questions are always more then welcomed.

Welcome to my world. Enjoy it!

    Dear Maya, Thank You so much for sharing these lovely patterns and ideas. I have two friends in poor health who need a hug and I have tons of scrap material, so I’m making one for each of them. When I finish I’ll send you pictures.

    Are the free stuffed animals small in size? Do we need to enlarge the patterns?
    All your ideas are so cute.
    Thanks for sharing,

      Thank you Ellen. 🥰
      All free stuffed animals are small in size, you don’t have to enlarge the pattern unless you would like to make them bigger.
      Happy sewing ✂✂✂
