ABOUT ME

Hi, I’m Andrea Komornik.

I design colourful, interactive educational fabric toys, such as funny finger puppets, take-along dress-up softies, interactive felt boards and amusing games.

Welcome to the colourful world of

PATCH POPPETS!

 

I live with my husband in Budapest, Hungary. I’ve always loved crafts, especially sewing. In my childhood, I made several clothes for my dolls, then sewed my first tiny (only 5.5 cm tall) rag dolly of my own design (see the photo). 🙂 As a schoolgirl and later a beginner teacher, I didn’t have much time for creating, but about six years ago I started to realise that sewing can be a great way of relaxing and releasing daily stress.

 

Young kids have had a huge influence on me as a teacher in the past few years. Their endless love towards me and the world, their honesty, thriving creativity and fantasy gave me huge inspiration for toy making.

I became so obsessed with sewing colourful fabric toys that last year, after more than ten years of teaching, I set up my own sewing business to make soft toys as a full-time job.

After a while I felt brave enough to combine my teaching experience with my project ideas and the sewing skills I’ve learnt through the years and started to create my own sewing patterns.

 

I believe that all children deserve to be surrounded by safe, high-quality loveable toys, which develop their different skills, creativity and imagination.  In my opinion, kids’ favourite toys are the ones that someone who loves them made for them with all their heart!

Wouldn’t it be great if you could sew your own interactive fabric toys to teach all sorts of things to your children or students in a playful way?

My sewing patterns are designed to be easy to make even if you’re a beginner so that you can get the happiness creating and especially creating for someone who you love can give. In my tutorials I provide you with easy to follow, step-by-step instructions illustrated with lots of colourful photos to guide you through the fun process of bringing a piece of fabric to “life”. You’ll see how fun it is from choosing the right coloured fabric to embroidering a lovely, cheeky smile on the face of your fabric figure. 🙂 

 

Happy sewing!

Best, 

Andrea
