Founded in 2009, Cucicucicoo: Eco Sewing & Crafting has since become one of the most beloved websites for creative souls to find fast and easy projects to do in their free time with lots of room for personalization to best express themselves.
I want to enable everyone to create beauty that is practical in their everyday lives, with respect for the environment through creative repurposing of materials, making products and choices that help protect the environment, or simply learning to love and appreciate the natural world around us.
Cucicucicoo has hundreds of sewing and crafting tutorials with clear instructions and photographs describing each step. The free Learn to Machine Sew course has taught hundreds of beginner sewists around the world to learn how to approach their sewing machine and make something amazing with the skills they’ve learned.
More experienced sewists can find unique sewing patterns in the Cucicucicoo Patterns shop. The digital PDF patterns have detailed instructions and computer-drawn illustrations for each step, and have undergone extensive testing by other sewists before being made available for purchase.
All content on Cucicucicoo (blog posts, tutorials, free and paid patterns) is published in both English and Italian.

If you have a business catering to women who love to sew, craft, or create in other ways, you should definitely advertise on a sewing blog such as Cucicucicoo: Eco Sewing & Crafting for fantastic online visibility. Cucicucicoo readers love not only the very clear style of explaining techniques and projects, but have also come to depend on and trust Lisa’s honesty and openness regarding her own personal experiences, both within and out the crafting sphere. They therefore often ask for an honest opinion of the best products to use, knowing that they can believe Lisa for an unbiased response. For this reason, Cucicucicoo endorses only those brands and products fully reflecting the ideals and quality expected by Lisa herself.
Modern sewing, needlecraft and crafting are just starting to become popular in Italy, and Cucicucicoo is an ideal spot to reach Italian women who are interested in such crafty hobbies, yet have trouble finding the best supplies. But, being a bilingual platform with a large English-speaking audience, Cucicucicoo reaches far beyond to nearly every country in the world.

Cucicucicoo Patterns tester
All sewing patterns in the Cucicucicoo Patterns shop have been extensively tested by sewists of varying skill level and from around the world. These testers’ feedback is incredibly important because it lets me know if there are any parts of the instructions that are confusing, if there are any mistakes (grammatical or otherwise), how the item comes out with different fabric choices, and if the fit is correct in different sizes.
This is why I always look for testers for my patterns in both English and Italian languages before I publish them for sale. I myself have frequently tested for other designers, and it is fun to be a part of the process, see what other testers are doing, and get early access to a yet-unpublished pattern. Those who participate in Cucicucicoo testing receive the pattern in testing for free and at times another extra freebie, such as visibility on the Cucicucicoo platform, a shop discount, or an extra free pattern.
If you are interested in being a Cucicucicoo Patterns tester, just fill in this form to be added to the special testers’ mailing list. By doing so, you are NOT commiting to participating. Every time a pattern is ready for testing, I will send out an email with all the details and each potential tester can decide whether or not to apply for that particular pattern testing.
