Hi everyone! Thanks so much for stopping by! I was scouring the internet today, trying to find a list of great winter patterns to share with my friends in the Aurora Designs Facebook group….and I couldnt find one. It’s not that I couldn’t find one, rather, that I couldn’t find one that featured indie designers. I found a few roundups featuring designers that I’ve never heard of and some featuring the big 4 commercial pattern companies. I decided quickly that this was something that had to be remedied. And despite the fact that I’m currently on the hook for 10 loads of laundry, a couple loads of dishes and sever final pics for pattern tests…I would be the one to do it.
Today’s roundup is all about women’s patterns. I will be posting a follow up list of men’s, then children’s winter patterns some time in the next week or so. I’m not going to go in any particular order. No favorites here! If you have any question’s or would like more info, please drop me a comment or message and I’ll be happy to help!… Read More Top 10 favorite women's winter pdf sewing patterns from indie designers

Howdy! I recently decided that I was doing too much, so I began to take things down a notch. At this point, most of the sewing I do is for pattern testing and strike off sewing….and while I absolutely love it, it doesn’t exactly pay any bills or generate income. In all actuality, it ends… Read More My recent revelation, plus a Patterns for pirates sweetheart mash/hack
