Who is smockerybee?
Well I have to admit to being a bit of a nerd….Ok, then, quite a lot of a nerd in lots of ways, and top among the things I love to the point of geekdom are science and sewing.
I currently combine working part-time in science communication with motherhood and lots of sewing. I have always sewn, and since the births of my two daughters (littlebee1 in 06 and littlebee2 in 08) I taught myself to smock. I started from commercial patterns but now make my own patterns and smocking plates. I love making pretty clothes for littlebees and harbour vague hopes of turning this into a cottage industry one day.
I would love to share pictures, hints and tips with like-minded crafty people, and welcome your comments on my projects.
