If you follow me on Instagram you’ll know that at the weekend I decided to tip out the boxes into which I’d hurriedly unpacked patterns and have a bit of a sort out.
Hubby has kindly offered to scan everything into an Evernote catalogue for me so I’ll never duplicate a pattern again, and I’m itching to sew but not sure where to start. It’s been so long, I don’t trust my hands at the moment for much other than sock knitting!
As I emptied each of the 4 boxes that will be the permanent home of the pattern stash, I sorted them into piles of the same…..dresses, trousers, skirts, etc., etc.
It’s a bit of a revelation. I’ve some fabulous contemporary patterns in there, Big 4 and Indie, and also a growing collection of vintage ones that is bigger than I’d originally thought. This is entirely thanks to the kindness and generosity of my lovely friends Liz and Christian, who have gifted me some corkers over the last year or so. Liz is a whizz with the charity shops and is the person who always finds the most amazing things. Vogue Couturier for £4 anyone!?!?
I think I need to get some archive envelopes for these and store them separately. I’ll happily share details in another post if you’re interested.
But for today I’m sharing some spares I have in my stash.
I’ve got half a dozen Cake Patterns up for grabs and a Frozen costume. Here are the ones available:
If you’d like any of these patterns then please let me know in the comments. If more then one person wants it I’ll draw names out of a hat!
Let’s say I’ll close comments on this on one on Friday 7th April. I hope they’ll find a good home.
