Top 10 favorite women’s winter pdf sewing patterns from indie designers 

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!

Beanpop’s Zombies go back to school, Duck Butt style

I recently achieved something I've only ever dreamed of....I managed to sew up one of my fabric strike offs FOR a pattern test! If you do pattern testing and strike off sewing(or know about them), you know that finding a balance is key, but seldom do the two end up overlapping perfectly. I've always run into scheduling issues before. This time, Katie (Wilson, of Duck Butt Designs) was gracious enough to allow me to share little sneaks of the Duck Butt Designs project throughout the week, so that I could share my pretties from the ladies over at Beanpop, too! I'm pretty darn excited about it all, too!
