Yesterday, I took Taylor shopping and when I came home, I had wonderful packages waiting for me! First, my Hoodie Pattern order (from Kris) arrived (she even sent me a wonderful sample cut for the Amy Butler Lotus line, sigh, I’m in love with the print!)! I’m so excited to get started on the apron (more on that in tomorrow’s post).
My second package was the chain link fabric that I had ordered! The photo on the left is my inspiration top from the Macy’s website. I’m hoping that I can get started on this pattern soon.
Besides all my wonderful goodies this week, I’m just in awe of the number of patterns that are soon to be released. If you’ve been surfing around the internet, you’ve probably already seen all the posts – Amy Butler has a number of fantastic new designs! Instead of posting alll the photos here, I’ll point you to Kris’ entry where she shows them off (scroll down to the bottom of the entry). My favorite? The Frenchy Bag.
Hot Patterns also sent out a newsletter with some good news – not only do they have a new line of patterns being released, but they can be bought online (at Hot Patterns, McCalls, or SewingPatterns websites) and at Hancock Fabrics! Needless to say, I ran out to Hancock’s last night to check them out and came home with the Cha-Cha-Cha dress! I was suprised to see that it called for cottons – which is so exciting, because when I head over to Joann’s tomorrow (for their McCall pattern sale) I’ll have to check their selection!
Simplicity has also released their new patterns for summer. Nothing really ‘wowed’ me this time around, but it may be because I’m maxed out on patterns at the moment! What new patterns is everyone getting this spring?
