The Latest Thread – PDF Pattern, Sewing, Textile Design and Design Challenge

This week I finished my grandson’s birthday present and focused on creating two new fabric collections. I decided on an idea for the newest Spoonflower design challenge with Betabrand, and ordered some fat quarters on sale!  The biggest relief was the release of the PDF sling bag pattern! So here’s the latest weekly thread…

PDF Pattern, Sewing Textiles, and  Textile Designs

To all of my blog followers I’m offering a 20% discount on the sling bag pattern on Etsy now until July 18, 2016. Use Etsy code:  SLING20 to receive the discount.  The sling bag is a casual roomy bag that’s great for your shopping trips with inside welt pocket to keep your keys, cell phone or wallet handy!  Perfect for the advanced beginner or those beginners looking for a challenge of making  a welt pocket or adding a magnetic snap!

Textile Challenge


The latest design challenge is Double Take Design challenge sponsored by Betabrand and Spoonflower. They’re looking for quirky new takes on classic patterns, designs that reveal more than meets the eye upon a second glance, an all over print that could be two things at once (think: unicorn houndstooth), or simply something original, bold, and sure to invite conversation. Read more here …

Fun Sewing Project


Some of you have seen this outfit posted on my other social media sites!  I finished the little outfit for my grandson’s birthday and now that  I have more time I think that a pair of wave shorts will work well too. The shorts only takes a fat quarter of fabric and since the Spoonflower BOGO sale is in effect until the 14th of July I figured it’s a great time to buy the splash design along with a several designs from the orange collection too!

Spoonflower Sale until July 14, 2016
