Season 26 Meet the Designers: Rachel from Southern Magnolia Design

Hello! I'm Rachel, a designer for Wild Seeds Patterns with a passion for sewing, vintage style, and hand embroidery. I considered dressing up nice and taking a beautifully staged photo at some dreamy location for this introduction, but the truth is, I'm just not that fancy. When I'm not busy taking care of my four kids, I spend most of my days dreaming up new clothing creations or researching alternative sewing and embroidery techniques. Although I absolutely LOVE making over-the-top lacey dresses, Disney-inspired costumes, and fancy wardrobes for my children, I prefer to live in comfy t-shirts and sweat pants covered in thread/fabric lint while sipping my multiple cups of iced coffee.

My adventures in sewing began as a way to keep me sane while my husband was busy with the various sports seasons as a high school coach in the great state of Texas. But what started out as a hobby quickly turned into an obsession. I learned to sew from tutorials on blogs, YouTube videos, and PDF patterns. Over the years, I've had the pleasure of being a pattern tester for a couple of those same PDF pattern companies. The sewing community on Facebook has been such a source of wisdom, friendship, and encouragement, and I hope to be able to inspire and encourage others to push their creativity through my posts and designs.
