After getting more and more e-mails from international readers trying to find copies of my sewing patterns, I finally caved and opened a PDF store. Many of the patterns are ready and uploaded and the remainder will be added over the next few weeks. Independent shops will continue to be the only way to get paper copies of my patterns, but digital copies will be available here at long last.

To christen the newly launched PDF pattern store here at Empty Bobbin Sewing Studio, I’m offering a 20% off code through Monday the 16th at noon. Simply enter the code GIVEAWAYDAY at checkout for 20% off your PDF pattern order. Ready? Head on over to the shop after you enter the giveaway!

Note: If you don’t see your comment show up right away, don’t worry. First time commenters go through a filter and will show up just as quickly as I can approve them. I’ll work to be speedy!

Christmas Pajamas (x6!)

December 5, 2013


Last year, I wrote about my sewing-as-nesting phase just before Rhett was born. I made Christmas pajamas for our three kids and our two nieces and nephew. The kids were so cute together in their PJs and I knew then that a new tradition had been born.

Fast forward to this year’s set of pajamas! When I saw Pink Chalk Fabrics post about the Mammoth flannel from Robert Kaufman, I knew it would make the perfect material for the pants. I used the Oliver + S Sleepover Pajama pattern and paired the pants with some simple Hanes and Circo (Target) love sleeved tees.

The Mammoth flannel is incredibly thick and cozy, especially after it is washed and dried. You really need to feel it to understand how great it is. (and you really want to prewash it as it does shrink more than regular quilting cotton)

Having kids who appreciate a handmade gift is so wonderful. Their genuine excitement and sincere “thank you” feels so great after all that sewing. I’m so excited to make PJs for this cute bunch of cousins each year!

I’m plugging away over here on several different projects, but wanted to pop back in to declare winners for the pattern giveaway!
