Birthday Surprise Giveaway! Please help me celebrate. $6.95 wallet pattern FREE.

Today is a very special day for me, so I wanted to do something very special for you to help me celebrate.  My daughter, Samantha, just turned 16.  For everyone who's been there themselves when they turned 16 or had a daughter who did, I'm sure you know how important that is.

So, we're going to do something special and make one of our popular paid patterns free for this weekend only.  Yes, that's right, FREE.  As long as you download it on Craftsy this weekend, it will be free for you forever.  After this weekend, the pattern will go back on sale at $6.95.

Many readers would be sort of familiar with Samantha as she's kind enough to do most of the modeling for me.  (I find it hard to take pictures of myself.)  You may recall this popular design and free sewing pattern for the Bell Sleeve Top.

    Showing up in my email March 2020, as a FREE download, worth $6.95, yet when I follow the links, I’m to be charged $11.24!
    I beg your pardon?

    Thank you for the pattern. Did one for my trip to Morroco and found it very useful. Upon my return, I lend it to friends visiting Italy. They loved it so much that they asked me to sew two more to give to friends. Upon their request, I added a closure at the top as well for more security. Very good pattern instructions!

      Hi Gerd, thanks for your message. I’m not sure what you’re doing on that end but the pattern has been downloaded several tens of thousands of times over the last day or so so I’m confident all is working well. The pattern is host on Craftsy to you need to be able to access that. From this page,, look for the orange box with the orange button. Hope that helps and kind regards, Mayra
