When I first listed my first two patterns in my shop, I originally listed them on sale for the holiday period and for an introductory sale price of $5.
Since the holiday period is over, and well… it’s been over a month now, I thought I better remember to take them off sale this week. Otherwise it’s not really a sale ya know 😉
So I just thought I’d let you know to give you a last opportunity to purchase them at the $5 price.
They’re only going up to the retail price of $6, so it’s not like the increase will be steep, but I just thought you might like to know anyway 🙂
I will be adjusting the price on Wednesday so make sure you purchase before then if you’d like to get the sale price 🙂
And now for the exciting news –
I have 2 new patterns under development which I am aiming to release soon!! Yay 🙂
The first one is the pattern for the scrappy, quilted cushion covers I’ve been making a lot of recently…
These are such a fun, easy and effective item to make. The pattern will be suitable for a complete beginner or even people with a bit of experience who are looking for a quick, fun quilted project. I’ve made a huge different variety of them and they cheerily spruce up any space.
The cushion cover is finished in an envelope style so that it is easily removable for washing…
The next pattern I have in the pipelines is for a twirly skirt finished 3 ways…
The pattern will be for sizes 6 months through to 8 years and will include instructions & measurements for 3 different finishes…
A plain band at the bottom, ruffle bands at the bottom & a lace band at the bottom.
So… here’s the thing…
I’d love some pattern testers!!
Would anybody like to try out the patterns for me and give me some honest feedback? Please comment at the bottom if you would like to apply.
Great proof readers are also welcome to apply (**ahem cough e.g. Juliet & Katy 😉 ).
Huge experience in sewing is not necessary. If fact it would be advantageous to have some beginners apply. However, there are a few other important criteria that you must be able to meet;
You must be able to complete the projects in a 2 week turn around time frame. The cushion pattern is about ready but the skirt pattern will not be ready until March) . Please do not apply if that time scale does not work for you.
You must also be willing to provide photos of your projects and be ok with me using them for promotional purposes.
If you are wishing to try out the skirt patterns then you must have a daughter within that size range to sew for and be willing to have photos of her in her new outfit posted to my blog for publicity.
(edited to add; just her lower half showing the skirt is ok. The photo doesn’t need to show her face…).
In return you will receive a free pattern (or two) and I will be forever grateful 🙂
** Please note that places are extremely limited so please don’t be offended if you are not picked this time – there is always next time 🙂
*** Edited to add – thanks everyone for their offers, I have enough pattern testers now for this time.
