Dorybird is Dorothy Tully's Art and Sewing!

Hi, I'm Dorothy Tully, an artist + author + sewist + mama in Rhode Island, USA! Dorybird is where I share my creative passions with YOU! Check out my drawing, painting, and illustration art prints! I've drawn and written a bunch of children's books, too!

I also love to sew! I've got handmade bags, quilts, and other sewn goodies (and a sewing pattern) for you! Everything here is made by me! I hope you're inspired by my art, and have a great day! :)

  • Dorothy Tully, artist, children's book author and illustrator, drew this B&W pen self portrait for Dorybird Handmade

    Drawing is my forever love <3

    I've been drawing since I could hold a crayon and even have a fine arts degree (a BFA in Design to be precise)! I just let myself dream and draw the results, which always involve a boost of cuteness and positivity!
