I’m Lauren Wright, and Molly and Mama is my passion and my dream. It’s my creative world, where you’re encouraged to try new sewing and craft projects made with felt, hand stitchery, appliqué, patchwork and more. Everyone is welcome, especially beginners!
There’s a little bit of Molly (my grandmother) and Mama (my mother) in everything I create. After all, they are the two amazing women who inspired my love of all things creative and encouraged me to follow my dreams. It seemed fitting to name my business after them. And it’s a daily reminder of the importance of handing down the techniques and skills from past generations of talented women who have taught us more than just how to sew.
I work from home in a sewing studio located in a picturesque mountain town just north of Toowoomba, Australia. We’re perched on the Great Dividing Range of mountains on one side, with rolling hills and plains on the other. The view from my window takes in the parkland opposite my home, and the farmland behind it. Cows wander down to the dam for a drink, gum trees sway in the breeze and the Kookaburras call to each other across the park. I’m blessed to live in such an inspiring place!
We’re also lucky that our home is surrounded by beautiful gardens. So when I am not sewing, you’ll find me in the vegetable garden pulling weeds or in the flower garden picking pretty blooms. It’s no wonder that my work is filled with flowers and pretty things when I am surrounded by so much beauty.
It is my dream to share that beauty. I want to inspire you with whimsical but beautiful patterns and projects. I want you to try your hand at something new, to feel the satisfaction of making something from scratch, and to appreciate the lessons learned along the way. I want you to enjoy the process of making and of being creative. If we continue to explore creativity in sewing, it gives me hope that the wonderful skills that have been passed down by our mothers and grandmothers won’t be lost or forgotten.
I feel blessed to be able to share my designs and ideas with all of you wonderfully creative people, to build a community, to share what we know and help each other in our creative pursuits! So welcome to Molly and Mama – the blog to support the dream. It’s great to have you here. Thanks for taking the time to put a little creativity into your day!
Happy sewing, Lauren x
