About Caroline

Hello! My name is Caroline (AKA Puppy). Welcome to Little Package, a cycling cap & happy-making web-based 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…

I have been sewing for over 35 years, and until recently, I made the best handmade cycling caps there were. They were made right, they look good, they fit, and above all they make people happy. Loads of Little Package Caps are still out in the wild being enjoyed, but I no longer sew caps. Sorry to disappoint, but times have changed in happy ways.

If you would like to use the same template and techniques I used, my sewing patterns are available right here.

A little more about me

In the past have been a registered nurse and a hat maker, but I currently support my itinerant lifestyle by punching the right keys and talking to strangers. I have been building websites for nearly 25 years, and have worked with Wordpress since it came out in 2003. I no longer sew cycling caps, but I do adventure! In 2013, after a few years of bicycle touring, I took my first backpacking trip: hiking the entire Pacific Crest Trail in 153 days. Since hiking the PCT, I’ve lived out of my 1983.5 Westfalia van, mostly in the Eastern Sierra of California, and have covered thousands and thousands of miles on foot in that area and in Utah/Arizona (I solo hiked the entire Hayduke Trail 2+ times). When I’m not working, out exploring or wrenching on my van, I like to cook and I do a lot of reading.
