PDF pattern bought - what next

Image
Hi Everyone,
I am just dropping in to discuss .pdf patterns! I buy them all the time from clothes, bags, to quilts! Big ones, small ones to little itty bitty ones! I love them all and have them all backed up to the cloud! If you don’t know what a cloud is your hard drive on your computer or tablet!
1.  Depending on where you buy it from you will get the opportunity to download it as soon as you pay! Others sites might send you as email to download!  Don’t wait til later to download it.  Do it as soon as you can! Not going to use it right away, that’s ok, but download it to your storage! I say this because I use all Apple products and I download everything to iBooks!
2. Print it off for some light reading! You might find that cute bag is not as easy as you thought or you need to order interfacing, snaps, buckles, or more fabric! But read it!
3. Look at and cut out the pattern pieces and make sure they are all there! What do I mean? Well, you might find the pattern designer gave you a templ…

Sailor Top at such a great price

I am doing a bit of selfish sewing! I wanted a nice wardrobe to wear in sticky, hot, Florida, that is cotton. Why because I am a 50 something woman who hates to sweat. Have you heard of Creativebug it is a online crafting learning site. I love it, I pay $4.95 a month to watch anything on the site. I can save one course a month to watch forever. This is the Sew a Sailor Top by Fancy Tiger - Creativebug course which came with the pattern. You can do the Creativebug 14 day free trial and get the course and pattern free and make yourself one too! What a great deal. Then when you fall in love with all the different courses available you can pay a one time fee or $4.95 a month and lifelong learn something.The Fancy Tiger Craft ladies are great instructors and go step by step with you to make this awesome blouse! I could have never made it without the video, but with it, it was a snap! I am off now to go make a few more shirts for myself! Can't live my life in just teeshirts! L…

Just a little purse for a girl

Image
We are off for a week to visit our oldest daughter at the beach! Our little David is excited to see his mother. Currently, she is the nanny for her best friends daughter, who turned 5 a few days ago. I chose to make up a paper pattern to follow. To show you how easy it is 4 fabrics and a homemade pattern.
The fabric is Lecien - lovely Punch Girls, given to me by a very nice woman, Mary from the WVMQG. Sample fabric packs only has one piece of each print. So each part of this little purse is a different. I used a tiny magnetic snap. Which I deconstructed off a purse last month! Recycle! I am hoping she will like it! What little girl doesn't like Panda's? Just in case I but $5 in the change purse I made to go with it. Have a great week everyone! I am going to no WiFi land so possible no posts, mail anything until Monday.

Until next time, create and be unique, Lisa
