About me

Easy and fun with bits of magic

Welcome! If creating is your passion, I can help you confidently transform fabric pieces into cute companions with hidden superpowers.

It all started with my grandma, that thought me so much, and my mom, who always understood my passion and supported me. I still have the first sewing machine she bought me for my birthday years ago.

I am so proud I can pass my passion to my two sons now. I enjoy creating with them, they are my door to the forgotten world, where no rules exist, colors are combined in crazy ways, and time stops for a while. They are my severest critics, my biggest motivators, always encouraging me and cheering me on.

Please, come in, look around, I hope you like what you see. You are more than welcomed to join me on this journey.

    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,

    • Maya says:

      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 ✂✂✂
