Hi everyone! Hope you're having a fabulous day today! At Aurora Design Fabrics, we are featuring our favorite free tutorials and patterns through the entire month of December. Patterns for Pirates recently came out with a new freebie, so I sewed it up to share with you!
Today's tutorial comes from Elizabeth Blanchard, one of the Aurora Design Fabrics admins. She has made a video tutorial to show how she colorblocks her free Patterns for Pirates slouchy Beanies
Hi all! Hope you are having a great day! Brandi Lowery, the fearless leader here at Aurora Design Fabrics* had a fabulous idea the other day! She figured we (all the admins) should do something big for all of you this holiday season...so she came up with the Aurora Designs Holiday Freebies! Throughout the month of December, we will all be writing and sharing our favorite free patterns and tutorials with you! My first project to share is this pretty pair of Bonny Leggings!
For my final version, I used this gorgeous green glitter print from Aurora Design Fabrics. I love how it seems to sparkle, even though it's just an illusion. I also used Aurora Designs white cotton Lycra for the trim. The green was one of my favorite colorways and was part of my surprise box from Brandi this month. I'm so glad I got a Christmas-y color, as now I have a shirt to wear for holiday things that is both comfortable and dressy. You can find the glitter custom round here: Aurora Design Fabrics Pre Orders but be sure and head over there very soon, as they will be closing on the 9th of December!
This sweater is one of the most adorable things I've seen so far this fall/winter. I love the sleeve detail. And the pattern is written so that it would be easy enough to switch it up and do no ties at all or ties on both shoulders, if you so choose (I think I'm going to try both at some point!) I've used ribbon for a tie, as well as fabric, and they both work as well as the other. Another option for the tie would be to use bias tape
Hi everyone! Thanks so much for stopping by! I was scouring the internet today, trying to find a list of great winter patterns to share with my friends in the Aurora Designs Facebook group....and I couldnt find one. It's not that I couldn't find one, rather, that I couldn't find one that featured indie designers. I found a few roundups featuring designers that I've never heard of and some featuring the big 4 commercial pattern companies. I decided quickly that this was something that had to be remedied. And despite the fact that I'm currently on the hook for 10 loads of laundry, a couple loads of dishes and sever final pics for pattern tests...I would be the one to do it. Today's roundup is all about women's patterns. I will be posting a follow up list of men's, then children's winter patterns some time in the next week or so. I'm not going to go in any particular order. No favorites here! If you have any question's or would like more info, please drop me a comment or message and I'll be happy to help!
Hi everyone! Thanks so much for stopping by! It's been a little while since I did a post about Ellie and Mac. This isn't due to a lack of testing with them, simply life moving too fast for me. But tonight we wrapped up another fun test and I wanted to share it with you all! Say hello to the brand new women's Urban Legs Pattern!
