…and away they go

February 7, 2009

I’ve mentioned that I’ve been working on patterns.  Well, they are starting to head out my door for grading.  This is a big step.  After that, I can have them printed.  Then, you know what that means. 

It is really fulfilling that this is finally happening for me, and a lot scary.  It is the point where things start to become real and the thought of failing becomes very powerful.  I just have to remember that it is the doing that is the most important and that in itself is succeeding. 

I hope to have these patterns available to you in the next couple of months.  Let’s keep our fingers crossed that things work out the way that I want them, too.

You will see more of these samples in the coming months as I test the pattern and add some of these to the shop.

Here’s a sample that is going out in the box.

    Cute, I love to sew. but I am very much a beginner. I have the pillow case down and I can create cute little ruffles around the jeans or pants but that’s as far as I have gone…lol…I am confident I’ll learn more reading your blog.

    Oh I love it!!!
    I can’t wait to buy the pattern.
    You give me a lot of inspiration.
    I’ve copied you’re version of the Vida dress.
    I hope that’s O.K. with you.
