I have a couple of pattern releases to share with you. The first is Pack Your Backpack. I designed this pattern with Maddi in mind. Her Grade 9 trip this year is 6 days in Queensland and I thought this might be practical for her as carry on luggage and also for keeping her hands free as they explore the theme parks etc.
She loves the bright colours of Arrin Turnmires Pack Your Bags fabric and mixed with some scraps of denim gives it that teenage look. Hopefully with a nice bright backpack she'll be easily spotted and wont get lost while she is so far away from us!!!! lol
It was the first time I have made a backpack so it was fun watching it all come together.........even putting in those metal eyelets for the cord!!!
The second pattern release is the Sleep Tight Cushion which appeared in Australian Country Threads last October!
If you missed that issue then patterns are now available, so you can make an early start on your Xmas sewing!!
Just leave a comment on this post and early next week I will draw 2 names who will both receive a copy of each pattern! Please remember to include your email address if you are a "no reply" commentor, so I can contact you!!
And just as a tease:
Im still stitching my new BOM! Can you guess the theme yet? I having heaps of fun designing the blocks, cant wait to share it all!!
