    Xin chào các bạn, mình là người việt nam ất vui được gia nhập vào đội

  4. Hei.Jeg kom tilfeldig over din side og fant masse inspirasjon her som jeg vil prøve ut. Mønstrene dine er fine og morsomme. Jeg blir nok en fast gjest her. Har ikke så lang erfaring med å sy, men her kan jeg lære mye. Tusen takk,dette blir spennende. Jeg glemte å si at jeg bor i Norge og sliter litt med målene, da vi bruker cm og meter, men venner meg vel til det etter en stund:-)

      Hi and welcome to the team! Most of our audience is in the US so we end up using inches and yards rather than metric most of the time. I know that’s not ideal for our readers outside the US. Perhaps you can use Google to convert the inches/yards to metric. In Google just search “X inches in CM” and it give you the conversion.

Is there any way you could help us adjust your patterns to fit us ? otherwise ,you have the perfect place.. I plan to totally enjoy it.. thanks for all the work you do ….molly

  25. Elizabeth says:

  26. Lois says:

    Such a charming site! Really getting excited about the mug rugs…only one problem…how does one order the patterns?

    • All of the projects that have patterns have a download link on the page, usually a bright orange button in a light orange box that will say Download here, or get the pattern here, or something like that. When you click you are taken to Craftsy where you can add the pattern to your pattern library there and then download them when you are ready. Drop us an email if you get stuck somewhere along the way.

    Hi Deby!
    I’ve been a ‘lurker’ for some time now and have finally joined your group. I have made a couple of skirts and the Cross My Heart dress for my daughter. It turned out great!! Thank you for providing free patterns. Your pattern sizes seem to me to fit better than ‘store bought’ patterns – measurements are more realistic to the shape of women. (Example, my daughter fits into 3 size categories on store bought patterns but your patterns fit her perfectly!)
    Thank you again for all your hard work and providing inspiring designs!

  28. Lucy Parker says:

    Great site, I have already learned a lot of things scrolling the site. Hoping to make some of the things soon. Thank you Deby for explaining in great detail; and looking forward to learning new techniques!!

  29. sandra mitchell says:

    Hi Deby
    Your site is amazing and even though I have only just signed up for your newsletter, I have been to your site almost daily for quite a few months now. I use to sew many years ago, only a novice. I recently purchased a new machine and from your site I have made bibs and burp cloths, 5 skirts for myself and even a tote bag with zippers. You have the best website I have found and I have learnt so much from your videos; please never stop sewing and sharing.

  30. Nokukhanya says:

    Hello I like to say thank you and l like all the pattern

  31. Diana Diamond says:

    Hi there. I’ve only just joined the team. I’ve seen a lot of your works. I also look forward to doing more items. I’m also in my 60’s.. Keep up the good works.

  32. I live in Johannesburg, South Africa and only wish that I could get the fabrics and the haberdashery I see on your site. However, by joining up, I at least manage to benefit from the ideas and patterns. I’m another young over 60 and sewing is what makes my days so full. Thanks so much for your efforts.

  33. ruby Cooper says:

    Thanks your site looks interesting

  34. Lizin MN says:

    I cannot wait to start this wallet project. Sincere thanks for the patterns Deby, from a fellow brit, now in the US.

  35. Sarah Brown says:

    Love your site! And your lovely instructions. I am just now doing all my measurements and will let you know how it goes!

  36. ruth finley says:

    I would like to have more pattern to work with.

    • I’m doing my best Ruth, but it’s just me here so creating two new patterns a month is already a lot of work. Keep following and over time the pattern library will grow and hopefully you’ll find more of what you are looking for.

  37. Tina Pankow says:

    great site…hope to make many items…Love to learn new things….
