winsome goodies

1.25.2013

First, I want to thank you for the lovely response to my sewing table (I'm so glad I'm not the only "giant" out there!) and matryoshka dolls. My new table is working out great, and is currently com-plete-ly covered with the remnants of pattern drafting and sample stitching (i.e. the state I prefer it to be!).

Matryoshka doll by Retro Mama

Which brings me to "win some" portion of this post. In just a few days, my matryoshka pattern will be available for purchase (yay!). So, in celebration of my 14th PDF sewing pattern release, I will be giving away 3 copies of my Mod for Matryoshka sewing pattern!

All you need to do is leave a comment below (1 per person, please!) letting me know your favorite pattern from my shop, OR what pattern you would like me to tackle next! Three lucky winners will be announced on Tuesday (Jan. 29), and will receive the pattern before it is available in my shop (Wednesday). Please make sure that your name links to an e-mail address or leave it in the comments so I can contact you if you win.

UPDATE: This post is closed to entries, I will announce the winners later in the day!  Thank you to everyone who entered!

Good luck, and Happy Stitching!
