Sewing Pattern Clean Out

I am a sewing pattern hoarder or I was…maybe I could consider myself in the recovery phase now.  I’ve sewn since I was in my early teens and have collected patterns ever since.  Lots and lots of patterns.  Over the years I slowly stopped sewing clothes for the most part and switched over to bags and home decor items, which left me with lots of untouched clothing patterns that I just couldn’t seem to part with.  You know they became one of those I need to keep this – just in case things.  Well, I have been working hard to break myself of that habit and have started to let some things go – patterns included.

Today I started listing some of the patterns on Ebay.  Only UNCUT patterns are being listed at the moment.   I have more to go through and will share an update if I find another large batch of uncut patterns.  Below is a sampling of the current listings.  I will gladly combine shipping, so please feel free to contact me if interested in multiple patterns.

31 Days of Get it Done: Day 11 – Sewing…and it’s Done

Yesterday, I was working on sewing a new bag  for my Etsy shop and finally finished it up.  I was stuck on deciding which type of closure to go with and finally decided to use a hidden magnetic snap.  Previously (when I sewed bags regularly)  I would use 2 snaps at the top of the bag for closure and loved the simplicity, but wanted to try something a little more discreet that wouldn’t distract from the top trim.

So here it is…

I definitely like the look of smooth top trim…not that you can see it in any of the pictures I took. :)
