Hello!

Timberline Trail loop on Mt. Hood in Oregon

Lately I've been doing a lot of hiking. In 2013 I hiked from Mexico to Canada. This photo is from a 44-mile Timberline Trail loop on Mt. Hood in Oregon, August 2014

My name is Caroline Welcome to Little Package, a cycling cap & happy-making business. I started Little Package in 2005 -- all because I couldn't buy a cycling cap that fit my big head. My first cap was a hideous purple thing, but I kept at it...

Now I have been sewing for over 26 years, and I make the best handmade cycling caps there are. They’re made right, they look good, they fit, and above all they make people happy. If you would like to use the same template and techniques I use, my sewing patterns are available right here.

A little more about me

  • "Little Package" was originally a nickname based on my last name, My initials are C.A.P.
  • I was born on the East Coast, grew up in Alaska, and moved to Portland when I was 15 years old. I've traveled all over, but Oregon is where it's at.
  • I am a silver sponsor of the NW Trail Alliance, a local mountain bike trail upkeep & advocacy group.
  • I rode my bike solo from Portland to San Francisco in 2007, and from Klamath Falls to Portland in 2010.
  • I blog.
  • I do web work.
  • I hiked the entire Pacific Crest Trail from Mexico to Canada in 2013.
  • I moved into a 1983 Vanagon in December 2013 and drove away from Portland on January 1, 2014.

I no longer sew cycling caps, but I do ADVENTURE!

Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. ~ Helen Keller
