Two rolling carts that have four sections and are packed to the max. A lot of these patterns I've used and hope to again.
The patterns here I've selected to make in the very near future, like the next week or two or three. Maybe not all of them, but most. These items will complete my summer sewing.
Here are some more I've got nearby.
This stack has some "I might sew soon" styles too.
This is my first pattern cart. Most of the patterns are probably ten years or more. Lots of Vogue designer patterns in this cart.
Some of these are patterns that were laying around that I was going to 'sew' last year during the spring/summer and maybe fall season, and I just put most of them in here. This is a bin that I inherited last year. I have two empty drawers.
The patterns in here are kind of dated, but some I've sewn, and some not, of course. I put them in here because I knew I wasn't going to use them anytime soon. But I revisit from time to time.
And this stack of magazines from Burda, Knip Mode, Octobre, and a few others. There are possibilities here. But the tracing part, I just can't seem to get into.
Oh, I almost forgot to mention (confess), I've downloaded lots. The Sorbetto for instance. I've made two of those already.
So I ask, do you think I have enough.
Sadly it's no because I saw a Simplicity top that I think is so cute S2026. Someone had this on their site about two weeks ago. At that time they weren't on the Simplicity site. Also, this jacket, S2024 just saw this when I went to look for the top. Although the jacket reminds me of another they had maybe last year. I guess this is a new category for them. Sew Simple, only $1.99. So no need to wait for a pattern sale. And that's the thing. Without the sales, there is no way I could have accummulated this many. Well maybe, when I was working in corporate America and there weren't sales every other week! I do share my patterns with my daughter who sews, but she's as bad as me. Sometimes we have the same pattern. It's so fun to rush to the pattern sites when they announce their new patterns.
Go check out Simplicity and plan to add more patterns to your stash too...
Have a great evening everybody!
