“Hi! My name is Sarah, mum to Jack and Charlie. I’m a former primary school teacher and have always enjoyed sewing. I’ve a GCSE in Fashion and Design, but probably the equivalent of a PhD in how clothes work for children in real-life!
Our eldest Jack was born in Australia. Where we lived only had a few shops selling baby things. When I couldn’t track down an asymmetric cloth bib, I made the Baby Bandana Bib. Shop-bought cloth nappies were way too big for Jack, so I made my own. This turned into One Size Fits Most Nappy Pattern.
Friends asked me to make versions for them. Demand grew and in 2012 I set up Made By Jack’s Mum. At first I sold ready-to-wear clothes, but realised what I enjoyed most was creating original PDF patterns. I continued to build the business during a stint in Yorkshire so the boys could get to know their UK family. We’re now back in beautiful Australia and excited to bring you Waves and Wild!”
