I love a free tutorial as much as the next gal. God knows I blog about enough of them. But there are some very talented people out there on the interwebs selling their wares. Specifically, they're indie pattern makers. There's a little movement taking shape this month and I aim to be part of it.
Lindsay @ LR Stitched whose brainchild all this is!
For the month of May, I am committing to support a different pattern maker each week.
I will purchase 5 patterns over the course of the 5 weeks and with each purchase I make, I will tell a pattern maker that their work matters. My purchase will tell them that I am grateful for the time, effort and passion they put into their brand. I will be sharing my pattern purchase each Monday (well, except for this first one!) on my blog.
There are so many amazing patterns out there that it might be a challenge for me to limit myself to just one a week. But I will... primarily because I want to actually make the items for which I buy the patterns and my time is, well, limited! (Who's isn't? Damn you, Hermione Granger, and your precious Time Turner!)
So this week, I'm going to buy something wee... very wee... from a designer I've supported before. You might remember these mini minis.
Tiny Toffee Designs on ETSY. I've wanted to buy her itsy bitsy paper pieced hexie patterns from the moment I saw them. And guess what? I'm treating myself! Off I go to do some digital downloading!
P.S. I hope you'll consider joining the May is for Makers shenanigans. These talented creators give so much to our quilting community. Show them some love!
