About Me!

Dorothy Tully from Dorybird baby and children's clothes and cloth diapers

Dorybird is the home of Dorothy Tully, artist, author, mama of two girls, and self-taught sewing enthusiast! I love color, rainbows, and bright, fun patterns. I try hard not to buy way too much fabric, but this is hard for me. ;)

I taught myself to sew thanks to indie tutorials, blogs, and YouTube. ;) I first really started by making cloth trainers and clothes for my daughter in 2014. When I had my second daughter, I began sewing cloth diapers for her. I obsessed over getting the perfect design, and the result is my Chickadee cloth diaper! Check out my cloth diaper pattern if you'd like to make some SUPER EFFECTIVE cloth diapers for your child.

I've always loved drawing and making comics, too, and I also write children's books! Please take a look at my fairy series or my other positive, silly picture books.

I have a background in art and design, I love gardening, comics, sushi, Bollywood romances, the British Baking Show, and upbeat electronic music! (My list of nerdy fandoms is long....) My family and I (including two dogs and a cat) live in a cozy town in Rhode Island. I hope my Dorybird creations will make you and your little ones smile!
