Have you had a chance to see inside any of our new patterns yet? They have a fresh new look starting with the cover and all the way through to the end. The format is the same easy-to-follow style and we hope you get a chance to see it soon if you haven't already! We have some really fun new releases this week, so be sure to check them out! There are also TWO big contests going on this week, as well as a fabric giveaway on the blog. Let's get started so you don't miss anything!
First up this week is Murphy's Trapper Cap! It fits all sizes from newborn to adult and can be made of a variety of materials. Use faux leather for a fun aviator hat, faux furs for a fluffy warm cap, or cottons and minky for an everyday look to match your outfits. Murphy’s is reversible, sturdy, and truly a beginner pattern. You’re going to love sewing it just as much as you love wearing it!
Wisteria's Wings will whisk your little one's imagination into the world of flight! This one size pattern is great fun for many ages. Your little will love to become a fluttery butterfly or a zippy dragonfly. Both patterns are included and provide easy to follow steps! You will have gorgeous wings that they will love to show off, in no time!
Sandra Dee's Rockabilly Swing Dress is here now too, and it is amazing! Sandra Dee is available in both girls and women sizes. It features a scoop neckline, criss-cross straps in back, a princess seam bodice, pockets, built in pettiskirts, and more! If you love the retro rockabilly style, this pattern is all for you!
If you love our tween version of Cassie's, you're in luck because we now have it available in kids sizes too! (6-12 mos. to 8) Cassie's Side Swept Hi-Low Dress is a fun dress with an optional heart cutout in the back, side swept high low skirt and an optional built in petti! It's perfect for Valentine's Day and on into Spring and Summer!
We also have three new embroidery files this week! Celebrate the Tooth Fairy with our new Princess Tooth Applique. There are also two new decorative stitch designs: Cross Stitch Rooster and Decorative Stitch Buffalo. Use them on home decor items, tees, or dresses! All designs come in multiple sizes, fitting hoops 4" x 4", 5" x 7" and 6" x 10". They are super cute and versatile!
