Handmade Bike Caps!

Mr. Joe brought it to my attention via Instagram that he has been busy making cycling caps from the sewing pattern I offer. He has added in a few touches that I thought were super worthy of sharing.

A photo posted by Mr. Joe (@geezerwheels) on Feb 1, 2015 at 3:57pm PST

As you can see, Mr. Joe took an awesome Star Wars print and put it under the bill of his cap. He LOVES Star Wars. Who doesn’t? I think I see a Star Wars cycling caps enterprise in Mr. Joe’s future. I know when I was making caps, I took many orders from customers wanting specific fabric prints. Those were always the most fun caps to… continue reading

Digital Cycling Cap Patterns Now Available!

People have been requesting this product for years, and I’ve finally made it!

My two cycling cap sewing patterns — with the best instructions, templates, and style/fit available — are now downloadable as PDFs. You can buy, print, and be cutting and sewing within minutes from now! Check them out:

These patterns include the same templates and guidelines that I follow when sewing caps in my studio. They even include instructions on how to add a cozy earflap for cold-weather riding. I worked for several years ironing out hiccups and honing the style so that these would look and fit great on everyone. The patterns print out on letter sized (or A4) paper. Just make sure to print at 100% – no shrinking to fit.

Please note my patterns and designs are protected by copyright and intended for personal use only. It is not legal to use the pattern to… continue reading

The Little Biz That Will

It's been a while... First off -- Happy New Year! I hope you are enjoying the fresh feeling of 2013 as much as I have been. So much has been going on. Here are my thoughts lately:

As you may know, Little Package is a one-woman show. There have been times when I've had help in the studio with small tasks like cutting string, punching holes, and sawing wood, and I've had big help with my accounting (thanks, Mom!), but I do everything else. Sourcing, sewing, shipping, correspondence, web stuff, etc. etc., the list goes on. It can get overwhelming, and certainly creates blind spots when I get too busy with any one aspect.

Sometimes my brain just shuts down. For instance, for the past few months (more…)

Bike Craft 2012

It’s getting busy in my studio but I had to take a minute aside to let everyone know Little Package will be at the Bike Craft fair this year. This will be the 5th or 6th time I’ve tabled at this wonderful, homegrown Portland event, and as always, I’m looking forward to it. It’s so fun to be in a room with dozens of other local crafters who have worked hard to bring their bike style to life. Please put it on your calendar!

BIKE CRAFT 2012 December 1 and 2, 11am-6pm Sandbox Studios, 420 NE 9th Portland, Oregon USA

This month I am trying to catch up on the wait list that formed when I was out of action in August and September, packing and shipping orders from my online shop (which include semi-custom orders), and designing and sewing caps for Bike Craft. I’m… continue reading

Collarbone Update

Exactly 4 weeks ago I crashed a dirt jumper on a wooden ramp & broke my right collarbone. Looking back a month has gone by quickly, but trust me: individually, those 28 days each took an eternity to pass. I thought at week three my bone would be fused and by week four I would be sewing, but last week I had a setback. A massive spasm in the middle of the night re-broke my collarbone. No joke. It was a nightmare. But real. I thought I’d have to start over…

But this morning I woke and realized my bone had finally fused! Seems like broken bones learn from their mistakes. Now that it’s fused I can move around much more freely. I took two walks. I even swung my arm a little. I bought my own groceries!

Today in the sewing studio, Boone helped me cut backed-up orders and… continue reading

My Collarbone 8/18/2012

Regression Success!

My Collarbone 8/18/2012

It’s been a week since some mean gravity stole me from the air and threw me down on Lumberyard wood, breaking my clavicle. Mean, mean gravity. That choice little moment cut in half everything that preceded it, and what followed, into two separate worlds. Here I am in bed strapped together with braces and slings, in awful pain. This time last week I was just figuring out how to clear all the tables in the beginner flow sequence, looking a little more like this:

You can see exactly where I fell 11 seconds into this video (the first 15 seconds of the video shows what I’ve been working on). There is a little jump I was experimenting with, trying to get some extra speed. The third or fourth time on it, I just bailed… continue reading
