I finally got to squeeze in a little sewing the other day. I just purchased the "sew fab" pattern bundle (which you can read about and buy below) and now I have a ton of patterns I can't wait to try out. Here's the Greenpoint Cardigan I tried out in the tiniest size for Elsa, though it won't fit her for a few more months yet.
I used an old shirt of mine and some extra scrap fabric I had around for the binding.
So here's the deal I was talking about. Today is already the last full day of the sale, so if you need some patterns for sewing, this is it. It's a fabulous deal. (FYI: The link below is an #affiliate link, but frankly I love the patterns enough that I bought them myself.)
Welcome to the Fall and Winter 2013
Sew Fab e-pattern Sale Event!Last February was the first ever Sew Fab e-pattern Sale and it was so successful and was so well received that Jenny Yarbrough of The Southern Institute, the creator and administrator of the sale, decided to have more! This sale is bigger and better than the first, with plenty of patterns to get you through the fall and winter (if you live on this side of the hemisphere), and a few warm weather patterns thrown in for those of you who live on the other side of the world. You'll also find more gender neutral patterns for those of you who are sewing for boys. And what about you? Of course there are a few women's patterns thrown in for some selfish sewing too! Over the past several weeks a lot of behind the scenes planning has taken place to bring you this newest bundle of ePatterns from many of the top established and up and coming online sewing pattern designers. The result is a bundle of 26 PDF sewing patterns that you're going to love! For one week only, twenty-six pattern designers have come together to bring you 26 of their best PDF patterns, valued together at well over $2oo.oo, for the incredible price of $29.95!!! That’s over 80% off of the combined retail value! Plus you can enter to win a dream of a giveaway with several prize packages from some of your favorite online fabric shops!
For less than $30.00 you will have a library of resources that you can use over and over again.
The designers that have joined this sale are experts in their craft. Each designer has contributed one of their favorite patterns to create a bundle that is sure to please! Whether you are sewing for your own family or making gifts for others, these are patterns that you will love to use.
If you’ve never sewn with a PDF pattern before, let me tell you how great it is! After downloading your pattern instructions and your pattern, you will print out the pattern itself, creating pattern tiles, if you will. Simply tape the tiles together to create the full pattern! At that point you can cut out the size that you need and pin the paper pattern directly to your fabric, or you can trace the pattern size that you need onto sewing paper or tracing paper and cut it out, saving the paper pattern for later when you need to sew another size. Pdf patterns are so convenient because you can print them out as many times as you need!
Now for the good stuff... the PATTERNS!26 amazing ePatterns from 26 well-known and up and coming designers are instantly accessible to you by PDF download upon purchase of the Sew Fab e-Pattern Bundle. Here are the patterns that you will receive (click on the links below the images for more information about each pattern.):
