Meet the Designer: Liesel from It's Liesel



Hi, I'm Liesel and I blog at It's Liesel. I'm so excited to be a part of this season on PRP! I have followed for many seasons, and can't believe I'm not just watching this time. I'm eager and nervous, and can't wait to get started!

My parents taught me to sew when I was a girl, but I hated every minute of it. As a young adult, I was always working full time, and graduated college a week before my first daughter was born. Shortly after my second daughter was born, I became a stay at home mom, and had time to find a way to express my creativity. I enjoyed following several blogs, and started using lots of DIY tutorials to teach myself how to sew things, from baby leggings to carseat covers and more. About 4 years ago, I discovered PDF patterns, and went crazy with them! They make it so easy to learn new techniques, and produce amazing garments, my skills grew a lot through the many designers I used patterns from. 

I have four children, with number five due this summer! My oldest two are girls, ages 10, and 8, and the youngest are boys, 5, and 3. We homeschool them, which is fun and chaotic! I have happily lived in Kansas most of my life. My husband is a huge support, and I am thankful for him. We have been married for almost 12 years. 

If you want to follow me on instagram, I post my sewing and personal things there: @itsliesel
