Hello and welcome!

I am Olia – mom to 3, artisan, and designer from the North of Italy. My creative journey started when I was expecting my baby girl Sofia. The first baby blanket I made for her. A couple of years later, I realized that my passion to create for littles became much more than a hobby! In 2013 I opened SofiBabyShop on Etsy and the whole world has known me as a “blanket girl” or Sofie.

In 2021 I decided to connect all my creative projects in one place. This is how Sofie White Designs came to live.

From my heart to your homes

Everything you see in this artful space is a work of love and inspiration, coming to your homes from the deep of my heart. My designs are simple, timeless, and easy to make. They are like a white page that I give you, makers, to customize and make yours using your favorite yarns and colors. That is why, even if you follow a pattern, you are creating YOUR OWN item that nobody else in the world will have.

My first blankets were taking 2-3 weeks to make. Having many orders in the shop I needed to improve my “timing”. Thus, I started to create new baby blanket designs that were very quick to make – just a few hours, and they were done. Step by step I created a complete “newborn” line to allow new mamas to hold those precious moments and collect memories of the first year with a baby through heirloom blankets and handmade keepsakes. Later on designs for children, family, and home were added to it. So many of you wrote me asking to share the patterns of my designs, and it became my long-time dream that finally comes true.

I want you to enjoy every single minute of making your garment or blanket, that is why you will find detailed and clear instructions supported by videos and diagrams inside of every pattern.  The stitches combination for most of my designs is so easy that I call them Netflix-friendly. You will remember the workflow in no time!

I believe in the importance of little things and the beauty of simple things. My dream is to see more people enjoying slow living and creating gorgeous handmade (homemade) items. I find inspiration in everything around me – nature, beautiful Italian landscapes and cityscapes, music, poetry, and flowers. When I don’t create something, you can find me reading a book or a blog, doing yoga, or choosing the next destination for a dream family travel. White and coffee addict.  Sea and the beach (especially on sunsets) are my happy place.
