Dog Days


I wasn't able to post yesterday, but August 26 was World Dog Day! And in celebration of dogs, and especially rescue dogs, I am having a sale: use the code DOGDAYS15 for 15% off your entire order of patterns and felt purchased through my Etsy shop through Aug. 31, 2013, and I will donate all proceeds from sales of my Doxie Softies pattern to dog rescue organizations this week.

 Sale at Retro Mama
If you don't happen to need any patterns right now, or even if you do, please consider donating to your local humane society or animal rescue, or becoming a foster to an animal in need!

Happy Stitching! 


  1. Lovely post Kim and well timed as I need some more of your felt! If I hadn't already bought a doxie pattern I would today! Can I say to anybody thinking about it though that they are really easy to make but fantastic when they are finished. Julie x

  2. Thanks so much Julie! I'll see what I can do about saving you some on shipping, and I'll donate the equivalent of your past doxie purchase to a rescue :)

  3. My husband and I fostered kittens several years ago for our local humane society. It was great fun, who doesn't want a tiny kitten to play with and cuddle! We ended up adopting one and my mom adopted another. So I consider it a great success.... ;)

  4. Hi Kim, thank you for the sale, I wanted to buy a pattern on etsy, but don´t know how to use there the code? It shows still 12 dollars to pay. Thank you. Greetings Veronika
