I am almost done!! The first three "make it perfect" patterns are just about finished. A little bit of minor tweaking and they will be ready to sell!
I didn't realise that pattern writing/making would be such a time consuming process, my brain is sore now, but seeing the finished (well, almost) product is well worth it.
What started out with a whole lot of this: (plus way too much time at the computer, lots of trial and error at the sewing machine, and heaps of paper scrunching, fabric cutting, drawing, sketching, and thinking)....
Resulted in THESE: My first three little patterns. My aim is to design and write funky, modern patterns to be sold in the quilting industry. I am in awe of the gorgeous fabrics being designed of late, I am overwhelmed at the talent of designers such as Amy Butler, Heather Bailey, Anna Maria Horner, Sandi Henderson, just to name a few and want to create a range of patterns which are fresh and fun to complement these fabrics.
(you'll have to excuse my terrible photos...I'll get some good ones soon!)
I truly do love this wrap skirt. It is so easy to make and depending on the fabric you use for it, can be a casual skirt or something a little more dressy. I love it because it really shows off whatever cute fabric you decide to make it out of and it is quick and easy to put together. It works well as a maternity skirt also.
This little pinny is just adorable! (I want one in my size!) Just right for that sweet little girl in your life, this pattern has instructions for sizes 6 months - 5 years. Much, much cuter that anything you will buy in the shops, and no body else will have one the same! Teamed with a long sleeved top and some jeans or leggings it can be worn when the weather is cold, a t-shirt underneath when its a little warmer or on its own for summer fun!

These cool bags are filled with lots and lots of little items for kids (and adults!) to "spy" through a plastic viewing window. Perfect for church, car rides, doctors surgery, anywhere a quiet activity is needed. A brilliant educational toy, which helps to encourage tactile development, fine motor skills and concentration skills.
So, there you have it! I'm excited to be getting them out to some shops and will let you know when and where they end up. Of course, you can always email me (link at the side of my blog) for a price list and I can get them out to you. Of if you are not a sewer but want something made up, email me and I can custom make for you!
