My ambition in 2013 is to create 12 sewing patterns, publishing one a month, either for sale in my Folksy handmade shop, or to share for free here at Very Berry. I’m already well on the way to *not* meeting the first stage, because I don’t think I’m going to get the first one done and dusted by Thursday…..! Bu-uut my other 2013 resolution is *not* to get to stressed by self-imposed deadlines, so I’m ok with that. But I do have a logo/badge…
So, I’m half-way there, right?
The first pattern will be a little envelope pouch, suitable for mini-tablets of a certain size (Nexus 7, Kindle Fire for instance). Here are the first two prototypes:
This one’s made with Josephine Kimberling’s Dandelion Hatch fabric from her Just Dandy line, and some lovely spotty linen from My Fabric House, and some plain green linen to edge and line.
The second prototype is made with some of Erin McMorris’ Summersault collection (very cheery for the incredibly snowy day we had yesterday…), and some bright blue linen.
I am hoping to have the pattern up for sale by next weekend, and also plan to make and sell a few myself if you’d prefer me to do the work!
If you have any ideas for small-ish accessories/homewares that I might be able to create a pattern for then please suggest away… If you have a good idea, and if I can make it, you might well become the proud possessor of a free prototype (not the rubbish first one, I promise…).
And an early warning – I have a lovely Valentine’s themed felt giveaway coming, with the goodies provided by the lovely Etsy shop, Cloud Craft, so don’t forget to call back tomorrow.
