Amy Butler has three great new patterns out and she’s generously contributed two of each for a giveaway here on True Up.
The Domestic Goddess Apron offers three differently styled aprons in three lengths, with handy features like pockets and towel loops. They can each be made in small/medium or large/extra large, so if you avoid “one size fits all” apron patterns, this is a good one to try. Materials list here.
The Birdie Sling is a roomy shoulder bag that is great for beginning sewists (and a nice introduction to pleats). Materials list here.
This giveaway comes at a time when I’m needing some help, so I hope you all don’t mind if I put you to work in order to enter to win! I have been compiling a huge list of fabric- and textile-related links and I know it still has many, many gaps. Please give it a look and leave a comment with a link that I’m missing. I’ll bet you know of at least one shop I’ve overlooked (I have just started putting in brick-and-mortar stores by location), and I’ve barely scratched the surface with Modern Textiles (where I’ll be including people who design and print their own fabric for pillows, tea towels, etc.), Fabric Companies, etc. … as soon as I’m happy with the content I’ll be formatting it all to make it more user-friendly.
So just leave a comment with a link that isn’t already on the list (control + f (PC) or command + f to find on a page) and you’ll be entered to win a pattern. And let me know which Amy Butler pattern you’re most interested in. I’ll draw six winners this Saturday, January 31 around noon and notify the winners shortly after that. Thank you!
