Hi Everyone! It's Anne from Sofilantjes Patterns.
I got to sew the Verona dress from Jennuine design and loved it. Great birtday dress for the little diva.
Come on over to my blog and see more pictures of the dress.
See you there.


This is Heidi, from Pollywoggles, and for this Designer Swap it is my pleasure to share with you all the Spirit Jacket I sewed up from Cole’s Creations.

I thought it was about time I sewed up something for one of my boys, and I had the perfect motorcycle fleece just waiting in my stash. Nicole’s instructions were clear and easy to follow and I love the pockets sewn into the front and the simplicity of the snap closure. My son loves the bike appliqued onto the back! Made with fleece, this jacket is exactly right for spring or fall, just cozy enough for cool days but still light and comfortable.

You can read more about the fun I had with this pattern on my facebook page today!


Hello! I'm Jenn and I design PDF patterns under my label Jennuine Design and I blog at A Jennuine Life.
We had so much fun with the last designer pattern swap we decided to do it again! I sewed the Mainstreet Dress/Tee from Terra's Treasures. I shopped my fabric stash and knew I wanted to use this great foxes Euro knit I've had for a while. It was only a fat half, so I had to get a little creative with the fabric, making the sleeves in a coordinate and piecing in a band at the hem for a nice tunic length. The pattern gives options for a shirt or dress length, and short or long sleeves.
The ruffles can be made out of woven, but I opted to make a single ruffle in knit and omit the ruffles at the hem of the dress since I already was color blocking.
The best part is that Hadley loves her new fox dress and doesn't want to take it off! Come on over and read more at A Jennuine Life!

Mainstreet Dress Title

Hello!
Nicole here, part of the duo that makes up Cole's Corner and Creations Patterns.
I'm always so excited when we do the Designer Swap and this year, I chose to sneak in a little self care sewing with Mel's Extraordinary Girl for Women pattern. 
It's the perfect fit for me, because it's made with knit fabrics for comfort and the design allows me to mix and match fabrics and prints and I love that!
Head over to my blog to hear more about the fabrics I used and to see a few more silly pictures of me (captured by my 10 year old daughter).

AD Challenge: Cote d'Azur Sun Hat from ShannonMac Designs

AD Challenge: Cote d'Azur Sun Hat from ShannonMac Designs

Hi everyone! I've been away from pattern making for several months, but I'm back with a brand new pattern. I've been spreading my wings, so to speak, and I've stepped outside my normal quilted box to release my very first wearable design!

It's almost summer here on our side of the globe, and I'm a pale, pasty chick. I avoid the sun like a vampire. It doesn't take long for me to turn lobster red, and I've had more than my fair share of sunburns in my life, especially on my face, shoulders, and the back of my neck. To avoid raising my risk of skin cancer even more, I decided I needed a big hat. And why not? They're very fashionable these days, and much easier to put on than sunblock (which I'll still wear!) Most of the wide-brimmed hats I see are some kind of woven style, but I wanted a fabric one, so it's washable and keeps out ALL the sun's rays. And this is it! Introducing the Cote d'Azur Sun Hat from ShannonMac Designs!

AD Challenge: Greenwood by Straight Stitch Designs

Hello, I am Kimberly of Straight Stitch Designs and I am so excited to be joining Swhetty Betties Aspiring Designers Challenge again.  These challenges are just what I need to get my butt in gear and release my pattern.  It's easy to have a pattern sit on your computer just waiting for a few things, trust me I have at least 3 patterns in various stages of completion on my computer right now.  The pattern I am releasing today, Greenwood, is the first pattern in my new collection Straight Stitch Basics.  This is the most 'me' pattern I have made to date and I am really quite excited about sharing it with all of you.
