Hello - Are There Any Other Pattern Design Enthusiasts Here?

Postby threebsinsanity » Wed Oct 25, 2006 5:03 am

I'm a sewing enthusiast that doesn't have near enough time to devote to my passion.

I hope to learn more about sewing and to contribute my knowledge as well. If you have any questions for me, contact me via my website. That's the best way to get in touch with me.

Look forward to talking with you all!

Pattern Making for a Perfect Fit!

Postby Sarah Doyle » Sat Mar 29, 2008 8:51 pm

I am associated with the http://PatternsThatFitYou.com site. We have a very large selection of pattern making classes for children, regular size and full figure women. Each of the classes teaches how to take your own measurements and how to use those measurements to make perfect fitting patterns each time. It makes no difference if you are tall, short, heavy, thin or anywhere in between, the patterns are guaranteed to fit your measurements, because, after all, you have used YOUR OWN measurements to make the patterns. All classes are written with step by step instructions and diagrams to make learning as easy as possible.

Dog Clothes Patterns

Postby leila » Wed Apr 02, 2008 1:16 am

Hi,
I'm new here, I love to sew....little dog clothes. I kind of fell into it about 8 years ago when I inherited a little yorkie (Winston) from my daughter. Things just evolved from there. Now I make dog clothes and dog clothes patterns. Winston is my model. My patterns are called Petite Puppy Patterns.
I made my first one to market just before the first of the year.
If you are interested, you can see my patterns at http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5654705

I'd love to know what your crafts are or what you love sewing.
Hugs!
Leila and Winston

Hi Leila

I've been sewing since age 8 and love to sew. When we were stationed in Taiwan I learned the Oriental Method of pattern making, and subsequently had a lot of people there on base ask me to teach them how to make patterns. So that sparked my interest in writing my first book "Sarah's Key to Pattern Drafting". The years later, because of a very overweight granddaughter, I began using my pattern making skills for making patterns for plus size boys and girls. You can see the assortment of patterns and classes at http://PlusSizeChildren.com. By using my granddaughter's own measurements for the patterns, everything we made for her fit perfectly, so that brought me to my current sewing interests. Thanks for asking.

I am not a pattern maker but I love making clothes for my pets. Sometimes it turns out so cuttte and other time oh, my gosh!. There are so many ways to be creative and they are much easier to make than human clothes. I guess because it is small and it takes less time to make and they are not picky!! of course I prefer to my dogs. :lol:

I wish I can attach some pictures for you to see.

patterns

Postby silverrose » Tue Jun 22, 2010 12:19 am

I just started sewing recently, although I learned the basics when I was a little girl. I've sort of been making up my own patterns for stuffed bears, cats and dogs. I also sort of wing it when I make clothes...I take shirts or skirts that I know I like and use them as a basis for my own original patterns. I find those fit better than the patterns in the store.

silverrose I'm the same. I just recently started getting seriuous about sewing. I mostly do bears and plush animals though. I kinda suck at making my own clothing patterns... althought I intend to get better.

Hey everyone, I dye a lot of my own shirts and wasn't sure where to post about this. I found these color changing paints and was going to try them out.
Just ordered these http://thermochromicworld.com/chameleon ... bulk-pack/
Has anyone used them? I am looking forward to try them out! :D
The best preparation for tomorrow is doing your best today.
