Meet The Designers: Courtney from Sweeter Than Cupcakes

I’m still pinching myself that my name is on the designers list for Project Run & Play!! I’ve been sewing along for years. In fact, I have caught myself talking about it to non-sewing friends as if Project Run and Play is common knowledge in all walks of life. Well, I’ve been spreading the word, so between all of us maybe one day it will be a regular topic in neighborhood coffee shops!

My name is Courtney, and I blog over at Sweeter Than Cupcakes. When I left the corporate world to stay home with two daughters, I found my strengths as a structural engineer lent themselves to an even greater joy found in the technical, mathematical, and artistic demands of sewing. A six month old daughter, an encouraging Mom, and a very old hand-me-down sewing machine came together at the perfect time providing inspiration for what is now a passionate hobby. Over 6 years later, with updated machines, a supply of tools, and endless motivation from favorite designers, I am sewing daily and always looking for new challenges. I love to blog about my sewing adventures. More recently, I became a social media coordinator for MODKID where I host sew-alongs, provide tutorials, and share lots of Modkid inspiration. 

I am looking forward to contributing my own style and stepping up to the challenges of Project Run & Play.
