I’m happy that I’m finally getting around to re-visiting and releasing Olivia Petit under my own design line – Connie Chang Chinchio Designs. The release of Olivia Petit also coincides with a brand new logo for the babies and kids’ section of my design line – Piccoli Chinchio – designed by my talented brother. [...]
It’s been a while since I’ve released a pattern — either through traditional publishing channels or under my own indie line — so it’s with great pleasure that I’m sharing two new babies/kids’ patterns under my Connie Chang Chinchio Piccoli Tesori line.
