I spent a day last week playing with two new patterns.
One was free, one cost money. Guess which one worked? I won’t name the free pattern here or show photos (suffice to say: if a pleat requires five turns of the needle and has external stitching, YOU’RE DOING IT WRONG.) But I will give full props to Nicole Mallalieu, a pattern maker of extreme awesomeness.
After I made one of her coin purses, I was hooked. I even had to make one with hexies. Why? Because, that’s why.
They’re in my Etsy store now.
