Sew Retro, Sew Available!

 Okay bad title. I’m tired. What more can I say? I’ve been the mummy of a Kindy kid for an entire week. That right there is exhausting. Bring on the weekend I say!

In the meantime, thanks to the wonderful work of my pattern testers, I have finished tweaking the Sew Retro vintage kitchen themed paper pieced patterns (say that three times fast! In my case, perhaps not, considering I told my daughter to put her sink in her cup today. Told you I’m tired).

So I have listed all of the Sew Retro patterns in my Craftsy shop! Yay!

Sew Retro Collage

You can purchase the bundle of all 7 or just pick your favourite block and get that individually. See? I’m all about options.

I’m also all about pretty. Let’s check out some of the pattern testers' Sew Retro blocks!

Patti's oven
Oven by Patti of Retired to Quilt

These are just a taster - there are some more lovely blocks popping up around blogland too – and I look forward to seeing some more! That’s one of my fave parts of drawing patterns – seeing how other people interpret them and what fabric they use!

So if you do make one of my patterns, make my day by adding your pic to the Flickr group!

Happy paper piecing!

  4. Oh, it's so fun to see my clock! So glad you got it yesterday (just in time) ~ I really enjoyed making it and look forward to doing all the retro blocks!
