SM2 - Sew Michelle - Michelle Dorsey

Michelle Dorsey I have been teaching sewing and embroidery classes in the Dallas, Texas area for many years now. As you browse through my catalog of patterns, you will notice that I gravitate towards tote bags and purses. I have been called the Tote Bag Queen once or twice:>) While I love sewing these kinds of pretties, I do write patterns for other things too. My creative juices flow best when I work on quick and easy projects. I like to call them instant gratification projects. Most of my patterns can be created in a few hours and that allows you more time to add your own creative flair to the project.

I love to add embroidery to projects, my motto is "A little embroidery doesn't hurt anything" but I also understand that not everyone has an embroidery machine. I try to include different variations to my pattern samples to show you that you can achieve your own cuteness without using machine embroidery.

It is my goal with each pattern I write, to include detailed instructions that will be clear and easy to follow. However, I understand that most of us are "visual learners" and sometimes even clear instructions are not as good as seeing images. That's why I have loaded my patterns with detailed pictures to go along with the instructions so it will seem as though I am right there with you while working on the project.
