.Your Uptown Girl creations.

I haven't shared any photos of your Make It Perfect pattern creations for still blows me away when I think about how all of this started. My local fabric store owner gave me the boost I needed to design my first few patterns and was my very first customer. She bought 5 of each of my first 3 patterns and at the time I remember thinking if that is all I ever sold, I would be totally happy!!!!

The whole reason I started designing patterns was to fund my hobby, and I can't believe it has turned into a business for me. I really feel so blessed that I can work and contribute to our family's income while still staying at home with my children and doing as much or as little as I have time for. I would be very ungrateful if I didn't thank you guys for supporting me in my business and for all of the lovely feedback I receive about my patterns.

Of course, one of the best things about it all is receiving photos of your finished garments. I love seeing your fabric choices and different twists you put on my designs. Here are some Uptown Girl photos that have been shared with me via the Make It Perfect Flickr group or your blogs...
