About Drake Makes (me!):

I am a maker, baker, parent, educator, data lover, and tabletop gamer. I love strategizing and puzzling in everything. If there was a problem, yo, I’ll solve it.

Like many sewists, I got started with basic hand and machine sewing when I was a child learning from family: pincushions, buttons, and basic pajama shorts. I didn’t do much else with it until a few years ago when I was encountered a problem: I needed a piece for a costume, and I couldn’t find it ANYWHERE! (Re-)Enter sewing: I drafted and sewed the piece for my costume, and then SUDDENLY SEWING EVERYTHING!

Most of my focus is on garments, bags, and mending; I also do help others and myself when it will solve a problem. I have drafted and modified patterns, learned various techniques, and I love to share what I do. Be it a pattern, technique, or results of my own projects, here is the place where I share what I love and do.
