Surprise Consolation Prize: FREE $6.95 Wallet Pattern


We just finished up our extremely popular Bernina Bernette B38 $749 RRP Sewing Machine Giveaway.  This giveaway has been our most popular ever, with tremendous participation across our reader base.

Patti Z. from Crystal Lake, Illinois was the lucky winner.  I really, really wish everyone could have won but we only had one machine to give away.

To say thank you to everyone for participating and as a bit of a surprise consolation prize, we have decided to give away one of our most popular wallet patterns which is sold normally for $6.95, absolutely FREE.

But please act today, this gift is only available for the next 24 hours!

The Minimalist Wallet is a fun and easy project. It has been thoroughly tested with tons of positive feedback from the pattern testers as well as many of readers.

We used Kraft Tex to make it but you can also use real leather or vinyl.  The pattern is suitable for beginners and would make a good first project.
