Britches & Bloomers Now a Download Pattern

July 6th, 2013 by

I’m excited to announce that my Britches & Bloomers pattern is now a download-only pattern. The pattern features adorable little pants for girls and boys along with a flower pocket top that’s perfect for summer. The bird and owl appliqués are sew cute plus make an easy purse for little ones to play dress up! You can download the pattern straight to your computer by visiting the Download Patterns section of the website, clicking on the image below or here. Happy sewing!

Blogs in the Spotlight

January 13th, 2013 by

It’s always fun to see how others were inspired by my patterns and made creations of their own. Here are two blogs that I enjoyed reading and think you will, too.

This Oregon blog named Probably Actually used my Britches & Bloomers pattern to create a pair of pants for a newborn boy.

Over at Fran’s Threads, a unique striped jacket was made using my Cute as a Button Baby Jacket pattern, which can be downloaded from this website for $8.
