More About Kristin Rutten, Matilda's Closet and AptOne8, (in her own words): I discovered long ago that the key to my happiness lies in the creative process. I also believe that everyone is creative … sometimes it just takes a little help to bring that creativity out into the open. My goal when designing my Matilda’s Closet and AptOne8 patterns is to make it as fun and easy as possible for you to create original clothing, accessories and furniture for the dolls and doll-lovers in your life. Designing Matilda Jo Originals patterns for you brings me a great deal of happiness. If you are proud of the items you create, enjoy the process and can express a bit of your own creativity along the way, then that makes me happy, too. Happy creating!
