Let's Get Sewing!

I’m here to help you sew beautiful handmade projects with my simple and creative teaching style that appeals to beginners and experienced sewers alike!

Are you ready to begin?


I’m Virginia Lindsay.

I’m the creator of Gingercake Patterns and the blog Gingercake. I started sewing again (like many of you!) when my kids were new and I was spending more time at home while they were napping and playing. I loved all the bright and beautiful fabrics available and I became addicted to searching for new projects all the time!

What Others Say

Exactly as shown/described! I purchased this as a cute Mother’s Day gift and my mom was so excited.


Such a great pattern! Easy to use! Love my little Llama!!


Love this pattern… instructions were very easy to follow and produced a great product! Would certainly buy from Virginia again.
