We are an independent sewing pattern company based in Amsterdam, NL. You can learn to sew with our patterns for women and children. They are perfect to build up your techniques from sewing with jersey to making a button placket or a dress with a lovely ruffle on the sleeve. The CocoWawa Crafts patterns from our sewing pattern company work all year around depending on the fabric you choose. They feature comfy designs and geometric shapes with a sweet aesthetic and cute distinctive details. Simple and nice patterns for all sewing levels.
Apart from dressmaking patterns, we have also launched a new line for you to learn to quilt. You can choose between the more advanced Dewdrop Quilt pattern or the Novice Stripe Quilt, perfect for beginners and that also comes as an exciting online course that you can take from the comfort of your home.
Our sewing and quilting patterns are available as downloadable PDFs in both English and Spanish.
On the blog and YouTube
You can also follow our blog to know more about new patterns releases. There, you will find sewing inspiration, useful tutorials, sewalongs and guest posts from your favourite makers in the community. If you fancy more watching than reading, CocoWawa also has a YouTube Channel. From fabric hauls, to how-to videos and hacks, there is something for everyone. Also, if you have bought one of our patterns, you can learn how to make them with our step-by-step video tutorials.
Virtual and in-person sewing classes
Want to learn how to make your own clothes? Do you have fitting issues with a garment / sewing pattern and need someone to help you out and give you advice? Someone gifted you a sewing machine but you don’t know how to use it? Or maybe it is not working properly and you would like someone to take a look? You have come to the right place! 🙂
At the moment, Ana, the owner at CocoWawa Crafts and a specialized sewing tutor, is offering two options. On one hand, you can join a private online virtual sewing class using Google Meet, Skype or Zoom, in which you will be the only student in the class. The price per hour is 20 euros, paid via Paypal and prior to the class. We can customize the classes to fit your purposes, choose projects together and set up goals along the way. It doesn´t matter where you live, we can make it work.
On the other hand, she is also offering 1-2-1 in-person private classes at my studio in Amsterdam, (NL) and the idea is the same. She would help you with a project you are working on, teach you new sewing techniques, maybe helping with fitting problems or showing you how to use a sewing machine for the first time. Also, she could come to your place, if in Amsterdam or nearby if necessary, so that you can still use your own sewing machine. The price for these classes is 25 euros per hour. For the in-person classes, apart from adults, she is also teaching children and teens from the age of 7 and who already own a sewing machine.
