Sarah Hanson is a UK girl living in the US. She designs patterns for plushies that are just gorgeous, and her store is bursting with cute doll and critter patterns that are sure to delight!
The more I read about Sarah, the more I like her and her work.
“I specialize in Fun & Easy Step by Step Photo Tutorial Patterns so that even a beginner sewer will be able to make dolls and softies just like mine!
When I was a little girl my Nanna taught me to sew & my first project was a little rag doll – I was in love! But when I brought a store doll pattern I was shocked at how hard it was to understand and so unhappy with my finished friend. So I kept creating my own doll & softie designs for my friends & family.
My life took an interesting turn after I organized a charity doll drive for the children of Haiti. I designed and offered an easy free doll pattern and the response was amazing. We collected over 500 dolls for the children and have since continued to collect, make & send out 1000’s to children in need all over the world. Through this wonderful work I received so many kind comments and requests for more designs and patterns and thus Dolls And Daydreams was born.”
