Sewing: Two Free Patterns I Picked Up Today

So, right now, I probably have more PDF sewing patterns stashed away on our computers and hard drives than I could ever sew in a decade, but I can’t resist a great free download when I see one!

Hera Top from Wardrobe By Me

Wardrobe By Me is offering this cute top as a free PDF download when you sign up for their newsletter. (They will send a link to access the pattern after you sign up.) It looks great with or without sleeves, and can even be adapted for jersey fabric. They have lots of other interesting patterns too, so I can’t wait to try this one out!

Superhero Masks via Makerist — Limited Time Only!

These adorable masks by Willow & Stitch — for all your little Spiderman, Batman, Wolverine, and Thor fans– can be sewn from felt, or simply traced onto cardboard. You have to create a login and go through checkout, but no payment information is taken. Many of the other mask patterns on the site cost around 6-8 Euros, so be sure to snap this one up soon! I can’t wait to sew these for my nephew… and myself. ;)

Material Monday: Stocking the stash with Fabric Mart bundles

If you’re one of those brave souls willing to shop online for fabric, you’ve probably come across Fabric Mart. Not only do they have a nice selection of fabrics at very reasonable prices (and frequent sales), they have something awesome for those who like a gamble: bundles. It’s a surprise assortment of fabrics (fashion or craft), thread, or buttons. Last week, they had a one-day sale on bundles, so I decided to try an assortment of buttons, along with fabric. I got sidelined shopping for non-bundle fabric, so I ended up missing out on a 10-yard bundle, and instead got one with 6 yards of fashion fabric, along with a half-pound of buttons.

The fabric bundle is not as awesome as the first bundle I got from them (which had amazing Barbie pink scuba knit), but better (for my taste) than the second. There is some funky flannel I can use to make my husband some pajama bottoms. The striped bottomweight will be a really cute skirt, I think. And the two-yard piece of cream crepe will be… something cool, someday.

Can’t wait for another bundle deal day to get some more surprises!
