Welcome to my page! Goober Pea Designs is a line of sewing patterns designed independently in Calgary, Alberta, by Adrienne Currie: a mom of two young kids, who loves to sew and create. I love to design multi functional pieces (such as reversible or size adjustable) and solve problems – for example, my sleep sacks were designed to prevent my own toddler from removing them at night and getting cold. Many of my items are designed for the colder temperatures, being that our summers are short here.
For anyone that may be wondering, “what exactly is a Goober Pea?” – here is the story behind the name: when I was pregnant with my first child and didn’t know if it was a boy or a girl yet, we called him “goober”. I don’t remember why, but I do know we didn’t want to use “peanut” because it was overused…. So, we got curious one day about the origins of the term goober, and that’s when we discovered that a Goober Pea was ironically another term for peanut!
