Where I Sew – Elizabeth Olwen

on Jul 21, 2014 in Sewing, Where I Sew | 82 comments

I’m a Toronto-based surface pattern designer and would describe my work as delicate, romantic and modern with a hint of vintage. I’ve loved sewing since I was a girl so having my own fabric lines with Cloud9 has been a dream! My first line, Grey Abbey, came out last winter, and my next, Wildwood, ships in September. I also design for other product categories, like bedding, stationery, gift and decor.

  12. I really like your wall color; it would not distract from the fabric at all.
