I'm Kellie, the owner/designer/originator of Pickle Toes Patterns.  Why Pickle Toes?  Well, I am a mom of 2 awesome boys that happen to have smelly pickle toes; at least that's what I used to tell them when they were little. That's how the name came about, but how did the business come to be?

 Well, I started out just a clothing designer making custom children's clothing because I couldn't find cute clothing for my boys.  Boys' clothes eventually grew into girls' clothing, which grew into making original designs.  To make original designs, I had to make original patterns.  Although I had been making my own patterns for years, it wasn't until 2013 that I decided to try my hand at making my own line of patterns.  The only problem was I didn't know how to computer draft them.  I paid someone to draft my first bear pattern, then an illness put my pattern making on hold for 2 years.  In the fall of 2015, I picked back up with more bear patterns until I was sure I had computer drafting down, then I started doing the patterns for the clothing I loved so much.  In the summer of 2016, I had another health scare, but I had already added 2 team members by then.  We started back up again in January of this year (2017) and have since added 2 more team members.   I hope you will enjoy each of my patterns as much as I've enjoyed creating them.  I absolutely love seeing what you've created, so please join my group and share those pics on Facebook.  

 I would like to introduce you to Tara Anderson and Jennifer King.  Tara is my right hand woman in my business.  She keeps me organized and we have big plans together.  Jen is our resident graphics designer and helper of all things.  I haven't found anything Jen can't do, yet.

 

Tara Anderson

I’m Tara, the designer of all things little!  I started my journey with Pickle Toes Patterns in the winter of 2016 as a tester for Kellie.  I quickly fell in love with Kellie’s designs and her sizing that included husky sizing for my boys.  I became an admin for Kellie shortly after my 2nd test.  We have had a great partnership from the start. 

I have 4 children ages 6, 9, 13, and 18.  I’m pretty much running crazy all day long with them, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.  

I started designing doll patterns this year for Kellie.  I love tiny sewing and making matching outfits for my daughter, so it’s a great fit for me.  Designing patterns was a natural progression from sewing for my business.  I had been making a lot of custom doll outfits for my customers, and it grew from there. I also design patterns for our bears n buddies line, and some children's patterns.  I hope to keep growing as a designer.  There's always something new to learn and I love it!  


Pickle Toes Patterns is not just a business, we are a family.  I hope you enjoy sewing our patterns as much as we enjoy making them.
