About Us

Hi there!

We are Anne Sofie Banke and Marie Friis Løye, the founders of Puff and Pencil, and we're thrilled to share our passion for sewing with you.

Our Mission

At Puff and Pencil, our mission is simple yet profound: We want to make the art of sewing accessible to everyone. Our driving force is the belief that creating your own clothing should be a joyful and frustration-free experience. We are here to bridge the gap between your creativity and the final stitch, ensuring that your garments not only fit beautifully but also look professionally crafted.

Why We Started Puff and Pencil

Our journey began with a shared realization – the world of sewing patterns and manuals had stagnated for far too long. As individuals who rediscovered our love for sewing after years away from the craft, we were disheartened by the lack of user-friendly resources and stylish designs available. This sparked the birth of Puff and Pencil.

We decided to take matters into our own hands, driven by a vision to revolutionize the sewing experience. Puff and Pencil was born from our desire to create a platform where sewing enthusiasts, both novice and experienced, could find modern and easy sewing patterns.

What Sets Us Apart

At Puff and Pencil, we understand that sewing is not just about following instructions—it's about unleashing your creativity. That's why we take pride in offering a unique mix-and-match concept within our pattern designer. With our innovative approach, you have the freedom to combine dresses/blouses, sleeves, and collars in countless creative ways, allowing you to design more of the pattern yourself.

We believe that sewing should be an expressive journey where you have the liberty to customize and experiment, ensuring that your creations are not only fashionable but also distinctly your own.

We focus on crafting digital sewing patterns that are not only easy to use but also stylish and contemporary, with a Scandi touch. We want you to create garments that you'll be proud to wear, without the telltale signs of homemade clothing.

No matter whether you're a beginner or experienced, you deserve patterns that make sewing a breeze.

Join Our Sewing Revolution

We want YOU to join us in our mission to make sewing accessible and enjoyable for people of all ages. We're excited to be part of your creative journey, and we can't wait to see the incredible garments you'll bring to life with our patterns.

Happy sewing!
