I really haven't been blogging very long, but it is nice to look back and see the projects I have completed. I said in my earlier post that I wanted to share a couple of neat websites with you. First, http://www.colettepatterns.com/ has started this new weekly tip by email called Snippets. If you would like to receive these tips go here: http://www.colettepatterns.com/snippets
They have some really lovely patterns. I have the Sencha blouse pattern and it is super easy to work with and the directions are extremely clear.
Secondly, I received an email from BurdaStyle. Another great pattern website that I have downloaded patterns from. Many are free!! They have teamed up with Singer and Martha Stewart to share quick and easy craft ideas and also give away many Singer products. Check this out: http://www.burdastyle.com/blog/sewing-with-singer-and-the-martha-stewart-show-a-great-new-way-to-upcycle-your-t-shirts
You may have to become a member of BurdaStyle in order to leave comments and win, but I believe you can watch the craft videos for free.
Last but not least: A PATTERN GIVEAWAY! I am accomplishing 2 goals here. First, to give away some free patterns to nice readers like you. Second, to destash patterns that are too small/big for my kiddos and/or me. All you have to do is leave a comment telling me which patterns you are interested in winning. I will draw random numbers to choose a winner. You could win more than one! If you want to follow that is totally up to you. This is a no strings attached blog. Here are the first 10. I will be posting 10 more tomorrow. 20 patterns-200 posts!
