michelle patterns | $10 shop credit giveaway. . . (closed)


I have a fun giveaway for you today! Some of the very first pdf sewing patterns I came across and used when I first started sewing several years ago were Michelle Patterns. I'm pretty sure that's when my love of sewing bags started. These patterns are so well written and easy to follow and I always love the finished product. You can check out other projects I've made with these patterns here.

I made these little card wallets using this pattern. These are quite possible the cutest things I've ever sewn. The wallets are teeny and just big enough for a stack of business cards or to give with a gift card tucked inside (perfect teacher gifts!) I think I'm going to use one to hold CF cards in my camera bag. They're also super fast to sew and take barely any fabric. The only change I made was to use leather for the strap instead of fabric. 


Would you like to make your own card wallets? Or maybe a pintuck wristlet? A passport pouch would come in handy if you're traveling soon! Michelle has lots of awesome patterns and sewing notions over in her shop - make sure to take a look! 

For a chance to win a $10 shop credit to Michelle Patterns, simply leave a comment below sharing your favorite pattern from the shop. Make sure to include an email address in your comment so that I can contact you in case you're the winner. Giveaway ends Sunday - July 20th, 2014 at 11:59 pm. Winner will be announced and contacted Monday - July 21th, 2014. Good luck!

  2. I have made the curvy clutch and the pleated wristlet. I love both. I'd love to try the messenger bag next. I want to modify it to clip onto the front of my bike, so I have a detachable bike bag/purse that I can bring with me when I am off the bike. Thanks!

  32. Oh I LOVE the bubble pouch from one of her bundled deals last year! It's cute and quick and kids love to keep their candy in them. The idea pouch is my personal favorite though Ja21ke@yahoo.com

  33. I have a bunch of Michelle's patterns and I love them all. I could not choose just one. But ... I don't think I have the card wallets and your two have convinced me I have to get it! So cute.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I have most of Michelle's patterns except for maybe a few of the newer ones, so it's hard to pick just one favourite, that said I find myself often drawn to the pocket clutch as it's a fun quick sew and I love making idea pouches as they're great gifts!

  35. I love this pattern, Card Wallets is brilliant and fantastic! I like them all.
    thank you very much, you are amazing

  37. Two of my favorite Michelle patterns--and there are more-- are the idea pouch and the pocket clutch. I have sewn many for gifts. They're great!
