ICMT: A Podcast for Makers!
Sit back and listen while I chat with some of my favorite makers on the new I Can Make That: Conversations with Creatives podcast! Each episode dives into the lives of these individuals, where we talk about what makes them tick, how they got started, who inspires them, and different ways they find balance in this crazy thing called life.
Hi! I’m Katy.
I like to make things. All the things.
It’s in my blood. My father is an engineer with a knack for technology, photography and construction. My mother is a baker, quilter, crafter and all-around creative genius. It was impossible to do anything but become a mixture of those two.
I truly believe that happiness is handmade. Nothing beats the overwhelming rush of pride and pure joy when you create something by hand. It’s a high that is unlike anything else and that feeling I get while creating is the reason that I keep coming back for more.
Thanks for stopping by and being part of my creative journey!

I'd just like to preface these photos by saying that I find myself accidentally dressing like Peg Bundy all the time. And it's not my fault. I have red hair and I love leopard prints right now....so it just kind of happens naturally. However, these photos are...
Get ready to have all of your colorblocking wishes come true. Because the new Sage dress pattern from Made for Mermaids is what dreams are made of. Seriously. During testing, the sewists in the group could not stop making more and more of these dresses. I wish I'd...
It's still a release week over at Patterns for Pirates and I'm sharing another version of the Runabout Romper that I created during testing. You can see the shorts/tank romper that I shared earlier on this post. This time around, I'm showcasing the super comfy,...
I've never thought of myself as a romper girl. Something about a top-to-bottom outfit that isn't a dress just messes with my head and I'm not always ready for it. The thing is...testing new patterns always pushes me outside of my typical style choice and comfort...
