50% off iron-on patterns

Spring is coming soon but there's still a few more weeks of "blanket sewing" left. In case you didn't know, "blanket sewing" is when you curl up on the couch with blankets and sew. (Or blankets and a cat if you're an advanced blanket sewer.)

To help you get in one last stitching project, I'm having a mini sale on my iron-ons. From now through the month of March, grab either the Botanical pack or the Nautical pack for just $5. Each pack comes with a jam-packed, 12" x 17" sheet of patterns.

So start dreaming of all the beautiful things you'll decorate with these designs and snag your iron-on pack.

Valentine's Day Sale 2019

new release

Valentine's Day Sale 2019

Some things just go together. Strawberries and cream. Grandmas and lemon drops. Peanut butter and chicken nuggets. (You can say the last one's weird but chicken satay is nothing more than the elegant version of my childhood favorite.)

Similarly, my Rockabilly Girl and Salty Sailor are two hipsters who just go together. Fierce, stylish, and totally cool, these two even have the same color palette.

That's why from today through the end of Friday, February 8th, I'm having a little Valentine's Day sale. You can get this couple for $45 instead of $60. 

Hang them on your wall together or give one to a friend. (It's the elegant version of the BFF necklace I never got but always wanted when I was little.)
