Sallie Tomato

Hello! My name is Jess, and I’m owner of Sallie Tomato Patterns and Purse Hardware.  I originally opened my shop in 2014, selling handmade bags to help fund my college tuition.  I discovered my passion for pattern design in 2015 when I launched my first pattern.  Now I have a growing collection of handbag, home décor, and novelty patterns.  Each of my patterns are meticulously tested by my group of pattern testers to ensure that you are purchasing a quality pattern, free from errors.  All of my bag patterns have been written to accommodate a variety of fabrics including quilt weight cotton, cork, kraft-tex, vinyl, and more.  Each pattern is complete with step-by-step graphics to help make the written directions easier to understand.  Included are many sewing techniques and to help you learn and expand your sewing skills!

In 2016, I introduced my first collection of purse hardware.  My collection has grown to include all of the essential purse hardware in silver, gold, antique, gunmetal, and copper, which are available in sizes 1/2", 3/4", 1", 1-1/4", and 1-1/2".   My hope is that it will be more convenient for you to find the hardware you need for any bag pattern. I understand that it can be frustrating to find the color and size of purse hardware you need.  In addition to the essentials, I stock some new, innovative pieces of hardware for professional results. 

Although young, I've had a lot of experience in the sewing industry over the years.  I worked at Nancy’s Notions Retail Store through high school and college, beginning as a sales associate and working my way up to store merchandizing, teaching, and giving demonstrations.  Later on, I co-coordinated a Nancy’s Notions Fashion Show and interned for Nancy Zieman Productions.  Currently, aside from running my own business, I work full time a local fabric shop, Kari’s Sew Unique.  At the shop I teach a Bag of the Month Club, Ruler of the Month Club, and Cork Fabric Classes, among many other activities.  I’m also partnering with Babylock Sewing Machines and Nancy’s Notions to create a series of videos to promote sewing and sewing machines.

Lastly, I get a lot of questions about where my shop name came from.  Sallie Tomato was developed around my middle name, Sallie.  Also, the tomato pin cushion is the main part of my name and logo design because I create sewing patterns. 

 

Thank you for the opportunity to share a little bit about me and my business!  Now that I’m graduated from the University of Wisconsin Whitewater in Entrepreneurship, I plan to launch more creative patterns, purse hardware, and share lots of fresh ideas!  I hope you’ll try my easy-to-follow patterns and quality purse hardware!

Jessica (Sallie Tomato), I've done my first...Zippy Crossover Bag......It turned out great. All I needed to do was to follow the very clear & concise directions. I enjoyed doing this more than I can tell you. Presently I'm waiting for more cork to do the 8 x 8! Since I'm really not very adept at following directions (so often they are SO confusing) I'm thrilled with the end product. Sallie Tomato, you are truly one of a kind! Tho I don't often use purses, my thoughts are to do another of your patterns. They are so unique! I'm anxious to get to FL for a few weeks in Feb. & Mar. to show my quilting friends.
Thanks again for the CLEAR, CONCISE pattern & all the extra tips for zippers etc. By the way, someone remarked about all the zippers, they couldn't believer when I told them how simple it was......just follow the directions.
