StraightGrain PDF Pattern & Cloud 9 Fabric Giveaway


Today I've got an extra special treat - a new fabric + pattern giveaway!  I love organic fabrics & using PDF patterns, so today I've got a giveaway for both (with THREE winners too) thanks to the lovely blog StraightGrain:


StraightGrain is the creation of An, a pattern designer, sewing enthusiast and mother of two. She offers great sewing tutorials and some very cute PDF patterns over there:

A few StraightGrain free tutorials

An has just released a new sleep sack PDF pattern, the Lua.  I used sleep sacks with my kids when they were younger and they were very handy in keeping them safely covered at night. And even if you don't have little ones, this would make a beautiful handmade gift for a new baby or baby shower:


Lua is a versatile pattern which helps you create beautiful and safe baby sleep sacks. The sleepsack closes with an invisible zipper at the side, and straps at the shoulders. This pattern comes in three sizes (0-6m // 6m-1y // 1-2y) and has options for decorative piping and straps closing at front or back.  


The pattern comes with very detailed instructions that teach you a number of techniques which will be useful for other projects: inserting a blind zipper with lining, adding piping, safely sewing on buttons, etc.  This makes the pattern suitable for beginning seamstresses, as well as those with years of experience.



Other pattern features include:

- quick and easy project (ideal baby shower gift)
- very economical in use of fabric
- digital pattern designed to cover just 11 pages
- easy-to-follow sewing instructions with full-color pictures of each step 
- details for pattern assembly, yardage & materials needed, cutting diagrams, and sizing
- all measurements are provided in inches/yards and in centimeters



And An also has some lovely children's wear patterns as well, like this adorable Tinny Dress pattern:



StraightGrain is also offering 
20% off purchases (through Nov. 4, 2014)

Good Luck Everyone!
