Meet The Designer: Shelly from Coral + Co



HI I'm Shelly.  I share all of my sewing adventures at Coral + Co.  Mostly I sew for my two girls Ava and McKenna, but I also like to quilt and make other pretty things. I started sewing when I was six years old making my first pair of barbie pants.  As a kid I was given an old sewing machine and I would make doll clothes using scraps of fabric I had been given. After my girls were born, I fell in love with sewing all over again.  I grew up in Sonoma, California located about an hour north of San Francisco  My family and I now live on an Island in South East Georgia, which is totally beautiful, but the humidy (ugh).  We pretty much don't come outside during the summer except to swim.  

Some of my favorite things are flowers, polka dots, and stripes and my favorite colors are aqua and pink.  I daydream about my next sewing project, love vintage patterns, drool over fabric, and I can't live without coffee. Bright colors make me happy, I love sunshine am super lucky to live near the beach and go as often as I can. I am super excited to be a contestant in this seasons Project Run and Play and can't wait to see what amazing clothing my fellow designers make!

  1. Georgia sounds fantastic! I can deal with humidity if there is water to jump in. :)
