Making Your Pattern: "Digitizing your Pattern"

Quick reminder that the To The Line Knock off pattern is available to print HERE on my Scribd shalf.  I should mention that if made as is would result in a dress sized “4”. I think the majority of people who have asked me questions about making patterns have asked how I make my patterns […]

Making Your Own Pattern: Part 1

Oh dear what a doozy of a week we have had. A horrible stomach flu went through our family. I guess it was nice in that we all had it on separate days? Which basically meant there was a constant stream of towels and sheets to the laundry. When I finally came down with it? […]

Going Green

Sorry for the lack of posts this week. Believe me it wasn’t by choice. We have had a series of long city wide power outages here on the island. Thank heavens the Embassy pays for us to have a generator, so while I think it is mildly annoying to have my sewing machine suddenly turn […]
