About Angel Hickman Peterson

square for profiles largeI am a stay at home mother of two beautiful girls and a little boy. I’m married to one of the most understanding men on the planet, who has given me the most amazing gift: a room of my own to create in.

I was taught to sew and pattern draft by my mother. One of my favorite memories is spending part of a summer making rag dolls with her, our two sewing machines working side by side.

With a bachelor’s degree in Film Studies from the University of Utah, my professional background is in film, television and ad production. While I love all things creative, (scrapbooking, photography, interior design) sewing is my creative comfort food. Being a slow sewer, I prefer to sew items for family and friends and share my patterns for others to enjoy.

I like anything to do with technology, if it involves computers and gadgets I’m interested. Pattern drafting and blogging became a full time hobby when I realized that I could meld the comfort of sewing with my love of computer technology and programs.

My designs tend to be on the classic side. I like clean lines with a tailored look – like all my favorite old movie stars from Hollywood’s golden era. Once in a while I like to make something whimsical, but I love a classic look.

My goal is to encourage others to dust off their machines and teach a new generation the joy of sewing and giving handmade gifts.

I currently reside with my husband, two girls and baby boy in northern Utah.

    Thank you so much for this pattern. I’ve made the hat today and embroidered it with Bluebells . You can see the little hat on my blog this evening.

    Thanks again, Sally :)

    Hi Angel,

    I wanted to download the boutique pants pattern for girl and doll, but when I tried to do it, my internet security system said your website might transport malicious malware and although your website looks incredibly helpful, I’m nervous to override and download. Is there any other way I might get this downloaded?

    Thanks!
    Beth

      Are you clicking on the pattern envelope or the ad? You need to make sure you are clicking on the pattern envelope labeled Doll pants and not an ad. Every time you willingly download a file to your computer you are at risk. My computer warns me this every time I download a pdf regardless where is came from. Just be sure you are clicking on the pattern envelope and not an ad and you’ll be safe.

    THANKS for your pattern…I revised it to incorporate sheep ears, and used it for 30 preschooler sheep in a Nativity play. I appreciate your FREE pattern and for inspiring me. :)

    Hi Angel. I just have to let you know how I used your “Back to School” skirt…besides making one for my granddaughter. I help with costumes at our high school for theatre productions, and your skirt was part of Lord Farquaad’s costume in “Shrek: The Musical”. It turned out great, and everybody loved it. If I knew how to post a photo to this comment, I would. Thanks again for the great pattern!

    Hello, I am a big fan of all of your work. I am currently trying to make a long cape and I want to try to make a pair of mittens but they seem really hard. You should make a pattern for pants for older kids like teenagers. Great patters!

    Hi, I love all of your free patterns and am thoroughly enjoying teaching my 3 little ones the joys of creating! I was wondering where you get all the fabulous fleece prints from? We’re in the uk and I can’t find anything as lovely as your prints. Could you point us in the right direction please? Thank you from over the pond!
