PDF Patterns and Tester Call!

2017 January 10

Good Tuesday Morning to you! 

Many of the friends and readers I talk to are beginner sewers. They love the DIY community and want to start sewing themselves. So, this month I am excited to post quite a few beginner sewing skill posts (+ regular stuff thrown in) and thought it would be a great time for a beginner-friendly pattern release. (Tester call below!)

Why am I doing this?!

These patterns help me to support this blog and my family! We’ve been a one-solid-income family since my kids were born. Both girls have been in full-day school for a few years now and so one of my blog-goals this year is to use my time to provide more for-sale content to help add to my husband’s hard work!

I’ve created PDF patterns for a few of my most popular free tutorials. These are PDF e-patterns with all of the instructions, updates, and pattern pieces in a tidy document. So far I have two available for a purchase of any donation.

SUPER HERO CAPE PDF PATTERN: available for any donation!

This listing is for the 9 page instant PDF download of the Super Hero Cape Pattern + pattern pieces, a tidy version of the free tutorial posted here. It is available for any donation. Thank you for your support!

P.S. You can find the Forest Glen Satchel Pattern and more in my Pattern Shop as well!

And… I’m also releasing a new PDF Pattern in a few weeks!

The free Fat Quarter Skirt tutorial has always been a favorite, and is well-used at our house. When I taught this skirt as a workshop at Creativ Festival, I sized it and provided a proper pattern to the students. Now I can release it to you!

The Fat Quarter Skirt PDF Pattern is Now Available!

Purchasing this fully tested skirt pattern gives you access to 5 sizes, child’s 2-6, to create a skirt that is 9-11 1/2″ (23-30cm) long. Expect lots of tips and tricks throughout, a glossary of terms, recommended best practices and instructions geared towards an absolute beginner. This pattern is truly a quick sew – allow yourself just 1-3 hours to finish, including your fabric cutting time. It’s also a great stash-buster, requiring only 2 fat quarters and a length of elastic… things you probably already have in your stash! To find out more about the pattern, click here.

*edited: Thank you, everyone! Testing is now closed.”

Pattern Testers, Please!

Before posting the final version, I would love to have some of you sew a skirt to make sure the pattern is perfect! If you would like to test the pattern between January 13-23, let me know by filling out the form linked below.
