#ADHolidays : A stocking full of cheer

Hi everyone! Hope you are all doing fabulous today! I have another freebie to share, courtesy of the Aurora Design Fabrics #ADHolidays campaign. Throughout the month of December, the admin team at Aurora Designs is sharing our favorite free patterns, tutorials, tips and tricks. There are tons of fun things to come, & there are tons of fun ones that have been shared already, like the new memory card game tutorial Elizabeth created yesterday! You can find that one on the AD blog here: How to make a fabric memory game. For the rest of the posts, you can find them in the Aurora Designs Facebook Group. Today's share is just a quick and easy pattern that's perfect for the holidays! It's simple to whip up, doesn't take much fabric and works perfectly with our panels!

Reblog: Sara Soares’ – The Ultimate List of Black Friday Sales on PDF sewing patterns

Hi everyone! I've been going crazy, trying to keep track of all the pattern companies that are offering special deals for Black Friday, but I stumbled upon this post from Sara Soares (at Made by Sara), and wanted to share. It's the best list I've seen...ever! She has included each pattern designer who is running a sale and details (if they were available)! Thank you, Sara!

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!

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!

Catching up: Projects lost in the shuffle of the #momlife

This post is going to serve as a catch up post. While I love to sew and love to share, I have kids a fairly busy life, which means that often, things don't get shared. I'm really tired of looking at my pretties and realizing I didn't share them. Sewing, for me, is all about the tangible item/reward that comes from it, as well as the feeling of having completed something. Lord knows, nothing else in this house ever feels like it's really "completed". (Laundry or dishes, anyone?...
