2017 was the year of the blog for me. I stepped out of my comfort zone and dove right into social media, my sewing and my fitness. There were a lot of growing pains and times were I wasn’t sure if I wanted to keep going. As I began to learn more and more and really hone in on what works for me I found my groove in this unknown virtual space. However, it wasn’t possible without the support of a wonderful sewing community that got me there! Now that it has been a few weeks past my blogiversary, I want to say a big THANK YOU to all who have followed me and supported my year of blogging!
Saying thank you isn’t enough so I’m going to host my very first giveaway! A couple weeks ago I shared a pair of vintage inspired polymer clay earrings that my dear friend Jessica made for me as a Christmas gift on Instagram. I love them so much and there was such a great response to them that I asked her if she could make a pair in honor of you! She said yes, of course! So one lucky individual will be getting these earrings! (Allergy alert – they are silver plated earrings hooks and the spool is made out of polymer clay with regular all-purpose sewing thread)
That’s not all though! I have one more announcement to make. I’ve been working away for the past several months putting something very special together. It has been a labor of love and I’m so happy to finally have it ready for all to enjoy.
So…what am I talking about?! Well…
I would like to introduce the At First Blush Pattern Company. A pattern company that will focus on lingerie patterns with a mix of fitness patterns (hopefully in the future). I’m a one woman show so I won’t be able to pump out a ton but they will slowly trickle out into the marketplace.
As a thank you to all who have supported me, my first pattern will be free! I call them the “Be Bashful Bikini” – a pair of panties that feature a low-rise waistline with semi bottom coverage. They are a comfortable everyday pair of underwear that offer the right amount of ease and support throughout your day.
Be Bashful will be available in time for you to sew them up before Valentine’s Day! Once this pattern is available you will see a buy button for them on the sidebar of this blog or you can head to my Facebook Shop (not open yet)! The checkout process is super simple and Be Bashful will be yours!
I truly hope you enjoy this pattern. Thank you again to all who have supported me! I can’t wait for the wonderful things 2018 has in store. 🙂
Stay tuned for the launch of At First Blush Pattern Co. and the Be Bashful Bikini!
