April showers


I certainly hope you're having nicer Spring weather than we are (sleet, wind, it's generally brrrrrrrr)!

If April showers are getting you down (or maybe even if they aren't), you might like to try out my Cloudy Day Applique Tote tutorial over at Craft Snob. The colorful clouds and raindrops will remind you of the gorgeous May flowers to come.

April Showers

Happy Sewing!

Two things


1. Make sure you catch my tissue holder tutorial over at Craft Snob. And when you print the pattern, make sure that the print settings under "Page Scaling" is set to "None" so your pattern piece prints at the right size (it will print too small if the setting is set to "shrink to printable area", don't ask me why).


2. Be sure to take advantage of my sale, tomorrow is the last day! Enter coupon code SPRINGSALE20 at checkout in my shop. The patterns in the sidebar are already discounted.

Have a great week!

Just stopping in to let you know about my guest blogging appearance this week at Craft Snob. I've got a cute patchwork coaster tutorial for you (and those coasters will go along perfectly with my tea cozy pattern!).
