Meet the Designers: Bonnie from Fishsticks Designs

Hello, there, fellow sewing enthusiasts! I’m Bonnie Ferguson from Fishsticks Designs, and I’m absolutely thrilled to get to introduce myself at Project Run & Play! I live a constantly busy life that I absolutely adore as a pattern designer and business owner, and a homeschooling mom to six children. I’m also GiGi to a sweet 3-year-old granddaughter!

   

My children range in age from 24 all the way down to four. (Yes! I had a one-year-old when my first grandchild was born. I totally recommend it. It makes the transition from mom to grandmom so much easier!) Two of our children are all grown up and living on their own, but we have four still at home – a 16-year-old knitting-genius daughter, a 15-year-old theatre-crazy son, a 7-year-old lego-building-mastermind, and our 4-year-old climb-all-the-things-and-jump-off-of-them boy.  


I love to sew, and sew almost every single day. I have a tendency to sew things that are practical and useful, but still creative and fun to sew! The majority of my sewing is for my two youngest boys. I appreciate the challenge of making things for boys that are modern, cute and easy-to-wear. Now that I have a granddaughter, though, I’m enjoying sewing for her, too! Little girl stuff is too much fun!   I can’t wait to see all of the things sewn for this season of PR&P! Aren’t the themes amazing?! This is going to be so much fun!
