A very lovely weekend to you all and it's been such a long time since I used this typepad blog.

I am delighted to announce that the Verity Hope dress PDF pattern is now on Etsy! and if you pop over to my Verity Hope blog I have a 15% off coupon tucked in the post:

For future reference, I post now on this blog and will be adding more coupons from time to time...
Happy sewing and a very merry weekend to all!

Hello, I've posted a new blog post today, all are welcome!:
Have a nice weekend,
For exciting news about...
'Easy Fit Pinafore Dress' PDF Pattern
visit my new blog:
Maurice bunny... enjoying his leaves....!!!
Made from the patterns and tutorials available in the Etsy Shop!
Thank you for visiting,
I love the simplicity and purity of bendy dolls, especially when they celebrate the earth and seasons.
Do you know Salley Mavor from Wee Folk Studio? Her work is exquisite and she is truly inspirational.
Bendy dolls are so rewarding to make, so in honour of their purity I developed the PIXIKINS....
Little free spirited elves that live where their hearts are most needed...
There are so many possibilities to the Pixikins and their tutorials and instructions are a great starting to a young creative, developing mind...
Please click on the side links and be swept away to more Pixikin paradise!!
Thank you for checking in,

I'm going to take a little step back in time now...Do you remember these?
The 'Flower Pickin' Pinny'...
and the Kitty Pinafore?...
Well, almost on a DAILY BASIS, I'm kindly asked if I would start making them again or at least sell the pattern. Making them at this moment would be a little tricky since my beloved sewing machine is out of reach HOWEVER.... could I make them into instant PDF pattern downloads? WHAT DO YOU THINK?
It has been playing on my mind for a long time now and since I've got the new
Verity hope dolls pattern out...
then I'm thinking to give the dress patterns ago too.
So, it's a very rainy, wet afternoon and perhaps the perfect day to start work on them.
I've not done a full size clothing pattern as a PDF before so it will take some working out.
Has anyone had a go at making clothing PDFs before?
I would love to hear your experiences?
In the meantime, here is another portrait of my favourite Verity Hope girls... and their BLOG:
VERITY HOPE DOLLS are fun and EASY TO MAKE and measure about 7 inches tall (18 cm).
You get to make the doll, ALL the outfits shown in the photos, a little rustic basket and pretty posy of flowers.
MIX and MATCH the clothing patterns to make different characters (three variations shown).
PDF PATTERN NOW AVAILABLE ON ETSY
