I feel like I just jumped off a cliff! I made the big switch to bigcartel for my pattern and sewing shop! Traci and I had been running may&mae together for a year now and decided it was time to branch out on our own. You see her handmade soldered charm business has really really taken off this year and we realized that it would be easier for each of us to manage our businesses individually. For those of you that know us personally, no need to worry, we are still bff’s :) Nothing unhappy about this split, actually quite the contrary, we are both so excited to have grown enough to get to this point.
So starting today December 1st, all of my sewing patterns, sewing kits and handmade purses can be found at:
I’m so stinkin’ excited but nervous all at the same time!
Traci will be keeping her charms in may&mae for the time being, so be sure to go visit her there! Oh she listed the most yummy Christmas charms this week…. I’ll keep a link to her shop up on my side bar.
Now no more shop update blog posts for a while now… I promise!!! :)
Also- to those of you asking about the May Quilt Pattern, I’ve decided to release it for a LIMITED time as a FREE download as a thank you to all of my readers. When it’s ready I’ll be sure to post the link for you guys!!
Sale ends at MIDNIGHT Pacific Time, November 29th 2010……
I’ve been working on a new pattern and revisions to an old pattern for a while now. I finally decided today that I need to announce a “coming soon” date as a little motivation to get them done!!
The Sunday Bag pattern has gotten a little “face lift”. Some of the yardages have been modified slightly and it now includes instructions for adding the ribbon ruffle to the front of the bag.
If you have purchased the pattern in the past and you’d like the updated version, just email me and I’ll send it to you.
Just in time for your Christmas sewing, I’ve also added a few kits to the shop.
5 different Fabric kits for the Sunday bag. All the kits include decor weight designer fabric, from designers like Anna Maria Horner and Amy Butler. The kit includes fabric and ribbon, you will need to purchase interfacing and handles.
There are also a few kits for the June Bag. These bags are QUICK and easy to sew and DO include interfacing and a button. All you need to add is thread! The June Bag pattern stayed the same just a “face lift” to the cover photo.
Last year when I was trying to think of a name for the company I wanted to start and I was stumped. Really stumped. I went through a dozen different ideas and all were nixed either by my kids, my husband or myself. FULL STORY...(543 words, 7 images)
