The Eli Monster formed after Stephanie began sewing cloth diapers for her own little monster, Eli. After months of searching popular brands for cute and edgy diapers while sewing for her own Eli and then for younger monster Adlai, she discovered that other moms were in the same boat. So Stephanie began the long process of designing and redesigning a diaper that was both trim and well fitting for skinny minis and buddha babies alike. Using her original pattern and skills learned while in school (Southern Illinois University-go Salukis!) she began creating diapers that are both trend forward and practical.
Now that her children are a bit older and out of cloth diapers, she has turned her attention to creating digital sewing and knitting patterns for all the clothing she has sketched out.  Making patterns is a great way to continue making NEW things.
