My First Pattern!

I'm excited to announce my first pattern available in my etsy shop! It's no secret that I'm not a high production sewer. I make these designs, and I love them, but I always have this need to move on to the next thing. That means sometimes I don't make enough of whatever current design to satisfy demand.
So from now on, whenever I put out a new design, I'll do my best to make a corresponding pattern. For those who prefer to use their own fabrics, or personalize the design somehow. You can even make multiples for gift giving!
I hope this helps make my designs more accessible. You can find the pattern in my etsy shop now, and to celebrate my very first pattern, I am offering it postage free:>)
I also want to take the time to say thank you for all the support and encouragement you have given me with your comments, advice and yes, with purchasing my designs. You cannot know what it has meant to me.  It has put me on a different path than I would have taken without your input and support.
So, Thanks. You're the best. All of you.
Love Kathy

    This design is so lovely, and I think designing your own patters is perfect. I have been admiring all of your designs, the recent apron one is also so adorable.
