About Me

Welcome to Anna-Zoe!

My name is Anya and this blog is about my adventures in everything creative, fabric and fashion related, as well as some random DIY project I will be taking on. I love to sew and create my own garments. I have been doing it for a few years and I am proud to say that most of the stuff I wear is made by me.

I am mostly self taught, I have been extremely lucky to be surrounded  by supportive women who sew. They taught me everything I know and encouraged my further growth. I am in no way an expert seamstress, but I enjoy learning and taking on new challenges. I shared a little bit more of my sewing history in my very first post as well as The Seamstress Tag post.

I have also recently discovered an amazing world of upholstery and bringing second life to furniture pieces. I am still very new at it but I find that my love for design and sewing translated nicely into this area. I haven’t had any upholstery projects in the past year or so, but I know there will be some in my future.

Join me on my journey through fashion, sewing and everything creative. I hope my trials, successes and errors will inspire as well as provide great learning opportunities.

Feel free to drop me a line!




  1. Hi! I read through some of your blog and not only do you have cute dogs but I’m very impressed with all your makes. My daughter is about your age she sews beautifully; doesn’t blog, so I’m setting you up for my next comment. ha! I was looking at your comment on being shy about your photos. While modesty and a little self shyness goes a long way; you need a confidence boost! So here it is: Life is short, someday when you’re older you will look in the mirror and say ” who is that old woman with all those wrinkles?” selfies? lol no! The world isn’t ready! Your beautiful! Do you know who you resemble? Princess Di. Honestly. You look healthy, strong, happy, have a good sense of humor,you’re kind, enthusiastic, and exceptionally pretty! 🙂 Your brick wall is lovely. Take care Anya, thanks for the pictures and writings. I never stop learning in sewing; I will keep learning new things til I’m not on this earth any longer! 😉 Your fellow sewist, Laura
