Hi, my name is Andrea, I am a surface pattern designer, creative book author, cooking enthusiast, travel lover, DIY compulsive, shop owner and blogger. Jolijou is my place to share my creative life with the world. Have a cuppa and enjoy!
My biggest passion is surface pattern design, I love to create patterns and fabric collections. I regularly license my designs to major companies in Europe and have seen my work produced on ribbons, fabric, embroidery files, paper and kitchen products.

I have designed over 30 sewing patterns for women and children’s clothing, bags, totes and accessories that have all been tried and tested within the sewing community and are mostly available for immediate download for you to start right away.

Nähen, so einfach geht’s! – is a beginner’s sewing book written in German. The book is designed to guide the novice sewer through the basic techniques of sewing by creating a variety of fun and easy projects.

I love designing ribbons for the creative industry and am always fascinated by the intricacy with which they are woven. I am very proud to have licensed over 40 ribbon designs to Farbenmix, one of the best choices for quality woven ribbons available throughout Europe.

Embroidery files are designs that have been formatted for the digital embroidery machine and are a great way to embellish home sewn products and clothing. I work very closely with Huups!, a leading embroidery file distributor, to bring my designs to the creative industry.
